What a Woman Wants

Front Cover
St. Martin's Publishing Group, Jan 9, 2007 - Fiction - 320 pages

After a close friend commits suicide, Faith, Monique, and Shannon head to the beach cottage on Hilton Head Island. Determined to heed her advice and make the most of their lives, they make a pact to spend the summer embracing new adventures. They also embrace new men and a new best friend along the way.
Filled with profound passion and sensuality, witty dialogue and richly drawn characters, this is a story of women having fun, embracing life, taking charge, and doing the things they want –and discovering in the process that everyone deserves to kick the routine every once in a while, let their hair down and explore new things. And if the right man comes along, especially one who is willing to make an already hot summer even hotter, then pushing the envelope just might give her life the jolt it needs.

I really liked this one. It does seem that Mrs. Jackson is slowing down though. Books arent as exciting ase the first ones. Still a really good read. 5 hrs 28 mins Read full review
