Most Helpful

Slow Start but enjoyed the book overall!

If you could sum up Uptown in three words, what would they be?

Good not Great!


What did you like best about this story?

Some of the history was good about NY (Harlem, Manhattan, central park,etc.) and NJ. The storyline was good overall!


Which scene was your favorite?

All of the scenes with Avery's friend Alicia. Would love to have a friend like her. Also loved the part where Dwight thinks he is back in control and can speak out and fix the situation with the young boy and the cabinet incident, walks intentionally into the reporters and they bring up his relationship with his prostitute - Mistress Delilah!


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes when Avery goes to see Dwight near the end to let him know how she feels and that she was letting go of the past and moving on!


Any additional comments?

Even though it starts slow, I think it is a good book and I have given all of their other books 5 stars, this one did not quite meet up to the high standards that I think have been established by these two authors. The action was quite a bit slower. Still think a pretty good book for a book club discussion. There is a lot of variations but some slow and dull. Need more extreme variety instead of routine.
