Publisher's Summary

Stella Payne is forty-two, divorced, a high-powered investment analyst, mother of eleven-year-old Quincy, and she does it all. In fact, if she doesn't do it, it doesn't get done, from Little League carpool duty to analyzing portfolios to folding the laundry and bringing home the bacon. She does it all well, too, if her chic house, personal trainer, BMW, and her loving son are any indication. So what if there's been no one to share her bed with lately, let alone rock her world? Stella doesn't mind it too much; she probably wouldn't have the energy for love, and all of love's nasty fallout, anyway. But when Stella takes a spur-of-the-moment vacation to Jamaica, her world gets rocked to the core, not just by the relaxing effects of the sun and sea and an island full of attractive men, but by one man in particular. He's tall, lean, soft-spoken, Jamaican, smells of citrus and the ocean, and is half her age. The tropics have cast their spell and Stella soon realizes she has come to a cataclysmic juncture: not only must she confront her hopes and fears about love, she must question all of her expectations, passions, and ideas about life and the way she has lived it.

Told in Stella's own exuberant, dead-on, dead honest voice, How Stella Got Her Groove Back is full of Terry McMillan's signature humor, heart, and insight. More than a love story, it is ultimately a novel about how a woman saves her own life, and what she must risk to do it.

    "okay"

    I read this book a while back and absolutely loved it because I felt like I was being taken away to an island paradise along with Stella, the main character. I was disappointed that this was an abridged version but decided to buy it to see if it was any good. It's okay but Terry (the author) speaks way too fast and abruptly--she sounds kind of mad in general, so I suggest listening to the sample first before buying this to see if you'll appreciate her voice, which seems to me unlike Stella's character. Good story though, which is why I give it a 3.
