    On the day he is supposed to propose to Amelia, things go tragically wrong, and Bodie ends up in the slammer with a conviction for manslaughter. Amelia can't believe Bodie is guilty, but she knows she's got to move on and find herself a better man. And just when she thinks she's found that man, Amelia finds out her new lover has more in common with Bodie than smooth moves.

    La Bella MAMA'S, wow I thought the murder mama's were bad, this new group of chicks ain't playing around, all I can say about book (5) is buyer beware, It was pretty hard not to listen to the entire audio in one day. I've purchased the entire series, and they were well worth the expense, Cary Hite narrated them all, and was the perfect voice behind each character. hope to hear more from the Carter's. great job.

    On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old Realtor, had three goals: sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

    if you like suspense this is the BOOK, not gonna give up to much, but let me say this, I could have given up, YOU'LL NO WHAT I MEAN IF YOU GET THE DARN BOOK. I hear the author is new, if this is the first book written, I can't even imagine what's coming next. HATS OFF TO U. I'll be on the lookout for whatever's next. The narrator also needs be commended for a wonderful job, she kept my attention (which is very HARD for me). OMG, what a great book.

    Greetings. There is a body buried on your property, covered in your blood. The unfortunate young lady's name is Rita Jones. In her jeans pocket you'll find a slip of paper with a phone number on it. Call that number. If I have not heard from you by 8:00 P.M., the police will receive an anonymous call. I'll tell them where Rita Jones is buried on your property, how you killed her, and where the murder weapon can be found in your house. (I do believe a paring knife is missing from your kitchen.)

Anxiously waiting for 15 years to get revenge, an opportunity finally presents itself when his right-hand man Aldeen introduces him to KoKo. KoKo is a boss in her own right and down for whatever, so when the offer is placed on the table to work with the top man, she accepts.

    I started not to purchase this book because of the title, but seeing Mr Gates narrated I took the chance, and found it be pretty entertaining, and I understood the tiltle a lil better. I'm still a bit confused about Kasan's mother (Monique) who was she to Koko? she was never mentioned in the beginning of this book, what was up with the gold chain and envelopes at the end .Maybe a continuation? regardless it was a good read, and worth the credit.

    Martin Grey, a smart, talented black lawyer working out of a storefront in Queens, becomes friendly with a group of some of the most powerful, wealthy, and esteemed black men in America. He's dazzled by what they've accomplished, and they seem to think he has the potential to be as successful as they are. They invite him for a weekend away from it all - no wives, no cell phones, no talk of business. But far from home and cut off from everyone he loves, he discovers a disturbing secret that challenges some of his deepest convictions.
