A Review of The Deal, the Dance, and the Devil by Victoria Christopher Murray

When the going gets tough, how far would you be willing to go to stay afloat? Well, the Langstons have hit a rough financial spot and temptation was right around the corner with an offer from Shay-Shaunté, Evia Langston’s boss.  This was more of an indecent proposal with a five million dollar string attached to it. The deal was for Evia to agree to have her husband, her own Adonis to spend a weekend with Shay-Shaunté in celebration of her 50th birthday.

Evia balked at the thought but then her husband had to go through with it creating a chasm in their marriage. The dance was whether the Langstons could stand up to Shay-Shaunté who now sued them for breach of contract. Go figure. Then again they were dealing with the devil.

Great dialogue. Great story. Great read.

Some of my favorite lines:

SILENCE. THE QUIET THAT WAS BETWEEN us was like our fourth child. It was always there, and over the past weeks, we’d nutured silence, allowed it to live, allowed it to grow.

Shay-Shaunté was the cause, and now it was all over. There was no need to let silence stay and separate us any longer; the deal, the dance, the devil…it was done.

Rating: 4 stars
