#BookReview: The Act by Nicole Waggoner

by Susan Roberts

The first two books in The Circus of Women Trilogy by a wonderful new author have been released and I am anxiously waiting for book 3 in early 2018.  Book 1, Center Ring, was released in 2016 (read my review) and book 2, The Act, was released in May 2017.

The Act
May 2017; 978-1544867458
ebook, print (306 pages); women's fiction
I really couldn't wait any longer to get back into the lives of these five friends that we first met in Center Ring last year. Nicole Waggoner left us with a life or death cliff hanger and it's been a long wait to find out what happened.

The Act is a fantastic continuation of the series. (Warning: this is a trilogy that needs to be read in order. I re-read book 1 last week so that I could remember all the intricacies of the characters lives when I started book 2.)

This series is about 5 best friends. They all have problems in their lives - work, husbands, families, boyfriends... but they know that they can always depend on each other to help them overcome their obstacles and to love them no matter what they are going through.

It's difficult to write a book from five points of view, but Waggoner does a fantastic job of creating five characters who feel like people that we know in our own lives.

As with book 1, The Act ends with a cliff hanger so we'll have to wait another long year to find out what happens with our five new friends.
