Publisher's Summary

More than meets the eye

On the outside, clinical psychologist Dr. Olivia C. Maxwell appears to live a life others only dream about. She has a sexy husband, a big house, luxury cars, and two gorgeous children, and she attends all the see-and-be-seen events. To add to the mix, she is beautiful, tall, fit, and intelligent. But what people can't see is that inside, Olivia is living a nightmare. 

As the only dark-skinned member of her family, Olivia grew up hating the skin she's in and she's spent her life desperately searching for acceptance. It's not long before those deep insecurities sabotage everything she loves. 

Friends 'til the end....

After being estranged best friends for 10 years, Savvy Menefee is back in Olivia's life. And her reappearance is right on time because Olivia is teetering on the edge. A whirlwind of crazy reactions is leading Olivia into a slow, out-of-control spiral. And Savvy must try to save her friend before destructive impulses leave Olivia in the midst of mayhem and murder.

What an adventure

I found myself going on this adventure right along with the main characters. The build up was gradual with several surprise twist. Once I started I had a hard time stopping. I finished this book in less than two days. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did. I’m truly looking forward to taking another adventure “Cynthia Freeman Gibbs”, thank you for sharing your artistry with the world.

Wonderful book

I have truly enjoyed the Dr. Olivia Maxwell story. It has been interesting to learn about the eating disorders discussed because as stated in the book they are often not associated with African Americans.

I believe that Mrs. Cynthia Freeman-Gibbs has done an awesome job with this story line and I look forward to seeing how Dr. Maxwell’s life changes from here.
