    In this hot and steamy mystery, Tennyson is an actor struggling to hang on to his career and redeem his sex-for-pay history, which estranged him from his family, especially his father, a decorated LAPD captain who raised Tennyson to call him "Sir". Now, in the wake of his father's sudden stroke, Tennyson has to save himself from taking the fall for a murder. In the process, he discovers his hidden talents - the hard way.

    Overall

    Heart-Pounding! Underworld Slime! CASANEGRA ...is a novel filled with twists until the very end. It is a page turner and complete work that stands on its own while setting up readers to search out the other tales of the Tennyson Hardwick novels in the Blair Underwood titles. A gritty colorful drama begins to unfold when Tennyson Hardwick assigns himself as a private investigator in a high profile homicide. Afrodite, a successful young female rapper gone actress/entrepreneur is well on her way to superstardom but later is found murdered in an alley. Tennyson's interest in the murder investigation is not only because Afrodite was a client and personal friend of his but, to this handsome reformed escort's horror he has become the number one suspect to the LAPD and with good reason. Not only was he the last one seen with Afrodite but there is also an incriminating business card found with her dead body which belongs to him. Be ready to emerge into LA's glitz, Palm Spring's glam and Hip Hop's underworld rap bosses, crooked cops, jealousy, mayhem and madames.

  • Remembering Whitney: My Story of Love, Loss, and the Night the Music Stopped

    On the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards, the world learned of a stunning tragedy: Whitney Houston, unquestionably one of the most remarkable and powerful voices in all of music, had been silenced forever. Over the weeks and months that followed, family, friends, and fans alike tried to understand how such a magnificent talent and beautiful soul could have been taken so early and so unexpectedly. Honest and heartbreaking, this is a mother's story of tears, joy, and her greatest love of all: her daughter, Whitney.

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

    Sad, Eye Opening, Closure.


    What other book might you compare Remembering Whitney to and why?

    I don't compare this to any other book. It was Cissy's Story and obviously we needed to learn who NIPPY was


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Funeral was my favorite scene.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me love NIPPY more than Whitney. It did make me cry.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want to really know Nippy as opposed to the persona of Whitney Houston I suggest you listen to this story....it will give you compassion of the True Story of this great Artist....gone to soon ....or perhaps it was her time to go and finally rest.

    Tawawa House in many respects is like any other American resort before the Civil War. Situated in Ohio, this idyllic retreat is particularly nice in the summer when the Southern humidity is too much to bear. The main building, with its luxurious finishes, is loftier than the white cottages that flank it, but the smaller structures are better positioned to catch any breeze that may come off the pond. And they provide more privacy, which best suits the needs of the Southern white men who vacation there every summer.

    Which character – as performed by Quincy Tyler Bernstine – was your favorite?

    Hard to say

    Carl Weber is a recipient of the Blackboard Bookseller of the Year Award. Married Men is a fresh and funny take on modern love that has been described as Waiting to Exhale on testosterone. Lifelong friends Kyle, Allen, Wil, and Jay all make mistakes in their marriages-and all get kicked to the curb by their wives. What follows is a wild ride with stops in sleazy hotels, divorce court, and even jail. In their adventure, fueled by Viagra® and lovely young ladies, the four men always have each other to lean on.
