Publisher's Summary

Four women. Two years.A friendship to last a lifetime.The only things that Sharita, Thursday, Risa, and Tammy have in common are their disastrous love lives. But the year three of them turn 30 will be different, they swear!Sharita, a plump and conservative accountant wants to make partner at her firm and find the man of her dreams. Thursday, the daughter of a formerly chart-topping political rapper, wants to stop being a serial one-month stander, and settle down into a stable life with a stable boyfriend. Risa, a skinny and audacious electronica punk rocker, wants to finally land an album deal, which she feels is the only way to win back the heart of her on-again-off-again closeted girlfriend. And after getting fired as the spokesmodel for her family’s hair company, sweet and gorgeous Tammy wants to prove that she has what it takes to make it on her own. None of these women get what they want, but over the course of two years, they get exactly what they need. And that proves to be the best thing after all.

    "She did it again!"
    Which character – as performed by Janina Edwards – was your favorite?

    Reisa


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Know thy self and know they relationships


    Any additional comments?

    Once again, Ernessa Carter has spun what seemed to be a "how to get a man guide" to an insightful, bold tale of relationships: girlfriends, daddy/momma/daughter, men, self. At first listen, I was tempted to confuse this book with the shallow urban black literature (all Black lit ain't created equal)-young women struggling with careers while tryna' look good and bandage all the bad feelings with a man, any man, wondering why "a good black man is hard to find" ignoring the lowest common denominator (namely, she!), but I degress... This is NOT that story. Ernessa Carter digs into the complexities of relationship dynamics (across the board) in an honest and clever way leaving us once again with the awesome charge of being authentically and wonderfully ourselves. She invites us to risk, share, love and learn in our journey to become our better selves and along the way, there's a chuckle but mostly an "ahhh haa".

    Well done my dear sister, I look forward to more of your tales SOON!

    "Slow start but wrapped up nicely"

    I enjoyed it once I got into it. I thought it was a bit long but overall a nice read.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would. This was a great story of 4 very different woman. I couldn't stop listening to this story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the relationships between the 4 friends, they all have interesting stories to follow


    What about Janina Edwards’s performance did you like?

    She was great to listen to! I have never listened to a book narrated by her but I will search her out now.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes and I even had a tear or 2 over it, I don't want to spoil it by saying anymore


    Any additional comments?

    This is a fantastic book! I listened to Ernessa Carters first book 32 candles and that was fabulous! Some of the characters from 32 candles show up in this book! I love it when authors do this!
