Pages: 198 pages
Tammy Hill is physically abused by her husband, Chris. She manages to escape Chris' wrath and hides out at a neighbors house. While in hiding, Tammy contacts her three older brothers and ask them to come and rescue her. The brothers quickly run to her rescue, but in doing so, they overlook their own flaws: one of the brothers physically abuses his own wife; a second other brother is a deadbeat dad who is supposed to see his kids the day they leave to get Tammy; and the last brother is a minister - the ultimate conflict of interest. The three men are forced to face their own demons and eventually learn that people who live in "glass houses" have no right to throw stones.
People in Glass Houses shouldn’t throw stones.
Well… Glass Houses, the latest book by Best-Selling Author Brian W. Smith fits that saying to a tee.
After a near-fatal altercation with her husband, Tracy makes a phone call to her brothers to help take care of the situation. Tracy’s brother along with their father filled with rage hit the road with their sights on revenge. They are determined to teach Tracy’s husband, Chris, a lesson on what happens when you mess with the baby girl of the family. But as we find out each of them has unresolved issues in their lives that they need to attend to instead of trying to play Judge, Jury, and Executioner for their sister.
Author Brian W. Smith is known for tackling subjects that are close to home for readers and this story is no different. We all know someone (even if that person is you) that always have the right words/actions when it comes to someone else’s life but when it comes to their life it’s a hot ass mess! So instead of pointing fingers at other people’s mess – turn that finger around to yourself and take care of your mess.
The author does leave the storylines open for a sequel or maybe he ended it the way he ended it to leave readers to come up with their conclusions. I usually don’t have issues with either of the scenarios because I have a vivid imagination. (One of the gifts and curses of being an avid reader) but I felt there should have been a few more pages devoted to each of the characters before the abrupt ending.
I’m a sucker for stories that centers around the subjects of revenge and karma – Don’t Judge Me.
Overall, I enjoyed the story and if the author decides to write a sequel – I will be the first one “in line” to buy a copy.
