Review: CROSSROADS ROAD by Jeff Kay

What would you do if your mother-in-law offered you a new house with 2 million dollars? The catch? You’d have to live in a customized cul de sac community with the rest of the annoying, crazy relatives.

For Jovis, it was an initial no-brainer. No! But then he’s not really satisfied with his job or his earnings, and with the new house and the money, he can finally write that novel he’s been dreaming about. So why not? So what if that means the mother-in-law will control every aspect of their lives. That’s what happens when you sell your soul to the devil.

Filled with snarky sarcasm and candid humor, the story was somewhat average with a gradual build-up. The whole story is basically the family’s transition to Crossroads Road (yeah, I thought that was a stupid name for the community, too) with family drama, gossip, and generally idiotic remarks paving the way.

You do feel for Jovis and his wife. Everyone is crazy, especially the mother-in-law, who is both irrational and unpredictable. As fast as she made you rich, she can take it all away and make you poor again. You need a Mylanta margarita to get through this move. The man on the cover illustrates this story well.

Is this all worth it? You just have to see how this disastrous story plays out. 

My rating: 3.5 stars
