In the sweltering little town of Belle Helene, Alabama, Carmen Taylor keeps her weaknesses, her frustrations, and her tears to herself. She's too busy shouldering the burdens of her troubled friends, like Desiree Lucienne, the petite, pampered daughter of a doctor who tries to bear the wildness out of her. But it doesn't stop Desiree from trawling for men whenever she can, and trying to drag Carmen along with her. Then comes Chester Sheffield who she's loved since they were both kids. Now a local cop, Chester,with his Barry White voice and all too fine body keeps showing up in her life wanted to do something about the feelings they obviously have for each other. But what would she do about her "boyfriend" whom she can't leave. It was because of a foolish teenage prank she played on him that he ended up in a wheelchair. She promised herself she would spend the rest of her life making it up to him which leaves Chester in Desiree's clutches.....

I got this book on audio for my long commute to and from school. My two hour drive to school and two hours back each day were almost a treat for me. Wonderful book and characters!
