Review : MONDAY, SUNDAY by Fenton Grace

MONDAY, SUNDAY explores a young widow's self-expression as she explores her own emotions and sensuality. Laney Secord, at 32, is now a single mother of a young son, following the loss of her husband.. Living in a minuscule Colorado community, her life is surface contentment until a chance meeting with a sixteen-year-old Boy Scout awakens her interest. As he pursues Laney, she pursues his divorcing dad, and the inevitable ugly denouement looms, for there are

Im not sure if Im disgusted or not. Premise of the book was good. Hated the ending, and couldn't believe all that happened in the middle.
That being said, I HAD to see how it ended. Train wreck for sure, but kept me reading!!!

I've published two novels, both of which attracted a fair amount of controversy. My first, Youth and Other Fictions, dealt with the aftermath of a school shooting in a small town and focused on mentally unhinged students and teachers. It suffered all the usual flaws of a first novel, but what really bothered people was the fact that I, a high school teacher, had written a novel about a high school shooting from the perspective of a high school teacher. Young people, especially students, loved it ...more

I was given a kindle gift in exchange for an honest review.
Fenton Grace's Monday, Sunday is the story of thirty-two year old Laney Secord, a small town widow with a seven year old son. The story begins when a young eagle scout, Christopher, comes to her house looking for donations to help fund a scouts trip. He comes into her kitchen and kisses her.
Chris continues to advance on her, and she realizes that it has been some sort of stalker-ish craze for him, but she doesn't put an end to it. Instea

Monday, Sunday is a very interesting book. You often see and read on the news about adults who have inappropriate relationships with teenagers but you never really think about how they happened or what may have lead them to that point. This is an interesting take on such a taboo topic. As much as my stomach wanted to turn at the thought of an older woman with a teenage boy, I understood Laney's feelings of loneliness and of longing to feel youthful and desirable again after she felt like life ha ...more

Laney’s husband passed away three years ago. She is taking his death really hard and blames herself for it.

But decides to date his father to sate her lust for Chris. But things are not going to end well.

This book only takes place over a couple days and initially sounds unbelievable until you look at the news and all the femal

Monday, Sunday, by Fenton Grace, is a book that I wasnt able to put down. The plot itself is a bit disturbing, but something about it just sucked me in. The authors writing style is unique, and Its obvious that she posseses a great amount of talent. The story had a nice flow to it, and I was pretty intrigued.

Main character Laney is a beautiful 32 year old woman who just loss her husband. Being a single mom is not an easy task by any means, and she isnt handling it well. She blames herself for hi

It’s been three years since Laney’s husband died. Since then, she has been with no one else. Now all of a sudden, 16-year-old Christopher shows up at her door soliciting for a Boy Scout trip. When he shows infatuation with her, Laney allows him to kiss her. While equally fighting and giving in to the tempting feelings he induces in her, Laney begins seeing Bill, Chris’ dad. As things begin spiraling out of control, Laney tries to become less of a victim and more of the person she has always want ...more

I had such a hard time getting through this book; partially because of the subject matter, and partially because of the absolute roller-coaster of plot, characters, and emotions. Literally, the only thing stopping me from giving the book a 2- or 1-star review is the fact that it was told from Laney's perspective (without being a first-person POV) and I can attribute some of the emotional whiplash to Laney's internal perspective. All of the characters are underdeveloped, except for Laney. Every t ...more
