In the debut novel, “The Other Side of 30”, readers will meet main character Sebrina Cooper. She is a beautiful young woman who, like many, is tired of the single scene and believes her destiny includes a prince charming. Enter a birthday gift that she will never forget; a one night stand with the handsome and charming Curtis. After that one night, everything as Sebrina knows it changes. As if it isn’t hard enough trying to make something out of a fling, Sebrina begins to deal with all kinds of drama; from her pregnancy to a new friendship with the wife of the man she is in love with.

The novel is drama from start to finish. At times you want to scream at Sebrina, and at times you are rather sympathetic. Overall, “The Other Side of 30” was a delight to read. Though some portions of the story seemed to carry on longer than necessary it did make for a smooth read.

I found that as I read this book, I was taken on an emotional roller-coaster, and what was enjoyable is that the author made the characters so real and relatable. I felt like I was right there going through the many trials and tribulations. This novel will entertain and definitely spark plenty of conversation after reading. Readers will definitely anticipate what Author Ry Swint has in store for them in her upcoming works.
