CAROL TAYLOR

BROWN SUGAR WANDERLUST THE EX CHRONICLES AND INSIGNIFICANT OTHERS

PRAISE FOR
THE EX CHRONICLES

"It's a familiar premise—four 30-ish, New York City friends... navigating the perils of single life. Thankfully, Taylor makes it fresh again in her delicious debut novel by punching up the ante with some intriguing Terry McMillanesque twists."
— Publisher's Weekly


The [Ex Chronicles] is everything you think it would be, but nothing you’d expect. Yes, it’s steamy and sexy, but it’s also about love."
— UptownLife.net


"The Ex-Chronicles reaches a literary plateau that all of the three, or four sista-girlfriend premise based books should have achieved years ago; evolving from having caricatures of the successful, upward mobile, black women looking for love, to stories that feature characters who have both feet firmly rooted in reality." — AALBC.com


"The Ex Chronicles is a good story about four women living very complicated lives. All of these women have problems with men, but it goes much deeper than that. Self-worth, depression, alcoholism are just some of the issues that were addressed in this story. Strong characters and an interesting storyline makes The Ex Chronicles a wonderful debut novel for Carol Taylor."
