The Joneses Book Tour

Are You Picking the Wrong Type?
By Guest Blogger Shelia M. Goss

How many times have you dated someone because you considered them to be “your type" based on preconceived notions?
Sometimes people get involved with “their type” and then the relationship doesn’t work. They again find another person with the same qualities they consider “their type” and end up in another dead end relationship.
Well if YOUR TYPE is not working out, maybe you need to change your criteria of what you’re looking for in a mate, because maybe “your type” isn’t working for you.
Women, if you only date men who are your same age or older,  you may be short changing yourself. The man for you might be a few years younger than you. What if the man for you is a “blue collar” worker instead of part of the “white collar” world? Shouldn’t him being a hard worker, making an honest living count for something? Do you only date men who are tall versus short? Your Mr. Right, might be in a smaller package.
Men, you say you don’t want a “gold-digger” but are you really looking beneath the surface or do you only want a showpiece? Most women are independent, so men are you able to deal with the whole woman? If you treat her right, she will allow you to be the “king” in her world.
One question to ponder - are people missing out on finding a good mate because they are too judgmental when it comes to looking for “their type?”

Keeping up with the Joneses isn’t all it’s made out to be. In this intriguing novel full of drama and plot twists, one family tries to hold on to their “perfect” life before their secrets, lies, and scandals are exposed.

On the outside, the Joneses seem like the ideal family: Royce Jones, a funeral home mogul, and his wife, Lexi, are parents to Charity, Hope, and Lovie—and everybody wants to be them. But it’s true that money can’t buy happiness, and the Joneses are harboring secrets that can’t stay hidden forever…It’s only a matter of time before the Joneses’ perfect life goes spinning out of control. 

Simply Said says;
Royce Jones owns RJ Jones Funeral Home and is the pillar of the community. When Boss Lady’s credit card is declined at the country club, Lexi Jones, finds out things are not as they seem and all credit cards have been frozen except the one Royce has. Their daughters Hope and Charity are caught up in a love triangle that they are two sides of; the other side is Tyler who has an agenda against The Jones. Their accountant/son Lovie Jones is doing dirty laundry with gang money. Watching the skeletons fall out of the closet and the drama unfold, Shelia Goss’s trademark twisted characters made this GREAT story.  Better than some reality TV I’ve seen! The characters and the plot are believable and the way she unfolds this story, has you drooling as you’re turning the page!
Loved this 5 star read!
