Chicagoans Whitney, Taylor, and Charisse have been best friends since high school, but now all three women are experiencing major bumps in the road of life. Health problems, man problems, and serious personality problems are threatening to ruin the gains each woman has made, and these trials are putting their friendships to the test. Performers Lynn Chavis, Audra Alise Polk, and Delores King Williams are all superb narrators with a flair for embodying their characters and a knack for different voices. This is a fun, funny listen with plenty of drama and relatable characters.
Whitney is a plus-size woman who just can't turn down a box of Krispy Kremes or find a man who will stay put.
Taylor is in a long-term relationship with a boyfriend who's allergic to commitment.
Charisse is married, with two adorable children, but somehow doesn't have what she really wants, or needs.
Then suddenly Charisse spins out of control. Her doormat husband manages to stand up to her and even threatens to go public with a very shady secret Charisse had hoped to keep hidden, especially from her interfering mother. Desperate, she decides that only a very risky scheme will save her.
One constant for these women has been the support they've offered one another. But this time, how far can friendship go?
In this witty, rollicking, deeply poignant story, Kimberla Lawson Roby demonstrates the storytelling magic that has won her legions of adoring fans and made her novels best sellers.

"Roby succeeds in writing another engrossing tale." (Booklist)
Changing faces showed a different side for my favorite author. It was wild and witty which was somewhat different from Roby's other books. I liked the balance that was portrayed by the reader. Listening to the book was great. I enjoyed it and could not stop listening. Great Audio book!
Kimberla Lawson Roby is an excellent author! I LOVE that this was a storyline without leaving you with a cliff hanger or waiting for a sequel! Awesome read!!!
The narrators were absolutely horrible. All three women used the wrong emotions at the wrong time and it felt like I was in 2nd grade reading again. If you can get past the poor reading then the story is not so bad but I wouldn't buy it again and there are too many other good books to spend a credit on this one.
I must say, it got me through my commute! No, it wasn't full of depth...and I didn't expect it to be. It was, however, entertaining. For as much as there were the predictable moments, they were also twists. Between gasps and laughing out loud, it's worth a credit.
i found this book entertaining. Some parts were very insightful with respect to people, what motivates them, etc. But it really only touches briefly on these things.
Overall I would say it was an entertaining, light summer read. Not spectacular, but pretty enjoyable.
