A Beautiful Funeral: A Novel
Losing has never been easy for a Maddox, but death always wins.
Eleven years to the day after eloping with Abby in Vegas, Special Agent Travis Maddox delivers his own brand of vigilante justice to mob boss Benny Carlisi. Vegas's oldest crime family is now preparing for vengeance, and the entire Maddox family is in danger.
The secret Thomas and Travis have kept for a decade will be revealed to the rest of the family, and for the first time the Maddoxes will be at odds. While none of them are strangers to loss, the family has grown and the risk is higher than ever. With brothers against brothers and wives taking sides, each member will make a choice—let the fear tear them apart, or make them stronger.
What a beautiful ending to an incredible series. So many tears but it was perfect.
After the funeral
At the end I was waiting for a little more content after they leave the funeral.
Love it, but hate it at the same time.
I loved the emotion you feel while reading the book, the suspense, and how the story unfolds.
Yet, we are let with many questions about the characters. For example, Camille mentioned she had a weird feeling in her stomach.... was she finally pregnant? Did Abby and the rest of the wives ever apologize to Cami after they treated her so poorly? Was Trenton ever going to forgive his brothers fully? Did Thomas and Travis ever forgive themselves for what happened to Olive and Papa? And lastly, was Falyn able to forgive them?
I personally love the relationship that Trenton and Camille have, they went through a lot of things and still managed to have a good marriage from what we read. Yet, I felt extremely disappointed with how all of the wives treated her. She was always there for them, but yet they would lash at her every chance they had... expect Ellie. I felt sad because they didn’t let her grieve, when in reality she had also lost someone she cared about. I also have a feeling that Thomas still held love for her. Cami was the one that took care of Jim, alongside with Trent, and the rest did not. Still they all stepped all over her. Very disappointed with this part of the book. They should have made her a stronger character, and given her some credit for everything she did.I would love to read about her and Trenton’s life after Jim’s death.
