Reporter Dana Nichols has come home to Mississippi, determined to uncover the truth behind the tragedy of her parents’ long-ago murder-suicide and clear her family name once and for all. The last thing she expected was an instant attraction to handsome, dedicated doctor Tyler Cole - or that her investigation would cause someone to try to destroy Tyler’s career and reputation. Now, as they search the past for answers, they must walk a dangerous line between trust and uncertainty that will put their future love at stake.

Meet Omari, a gorgeous, hardworking 28-year-old man from the South Side of Chicago. No matter how hard he works at his job at UPS, it is never enough to take care of himself and his long-term girlfriend. After continuous pressure from his older cousin, Ching, Omari finally trades in busting his ass for working under Ching, hustling three major blocks on the West Side. All is good as Omari juggles work and the drug game - until Ching involves him in the murder of someone who ends up being the governor's nephew.

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

One of the best books I’ve listened to this year!! The first story starts off confusing & I started to skip it but I’m glad I didn’t because they are all connected. You did a great thing ReShonda. I just wish you would’ve given Anna a little more but still 4 great stories that hinge on LOVE!!

But his world and career came crashing down because of bad habits, bad choices, and a bad attitude.

Just like any dysfunctional family reunion, loyalty, love, and good times soon turn to bitterness, regret, and promises to never see one another again. At the end of the day, the Banks sisters are no different from any other family in the city of Richmond - other than the fact that they are rotten to the core. Sure, the girls are bonded by DNA, but they're also tied together because of their past of robbing banks, extortion, drug dealing, and even cold-blooded murder. However, that bond means absolutely nothing to them.

Why Nikki do you cast these spells on me? She really is the best at this genre. She's been in this game a longtime &none of the new authors can touch her writing! This book was suspenseful & dramatic. Once again I've fallen in love with her characters, new & old!! Can't wait to read her next novel!

Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. She is a lawyer, not a cop, and it is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct. After nine years with the board, she knows that most problems are caused by incompetence, not corruption. But a corruption case eventually crosses her desk. A previously disbarred lawyer is back in business with a new identity. He now goes by the name Greg Myers, and he claims to know of a Florida judge who has stolen more money than all other crooked judges combined.

With the smell of burning wood and bricks lingering in the cool morning breeze, Johnnie Wise left New Orleans while her home was still smoldering. She had just been acquitted of murdering Sharon Trudeau, one of her former stocker brokers who had stolen a substantial amount of her nest egg. Broke with nothing but the clothes on her back and the shoes on her feet, Johnnie heads to East St. Louis to live with her father.
