One of my favorite authors comes through with another winner. Very good book about friendship, love and discovery.

FROM THE COVER: Regina Moore and Karen Jackson, lifelong best friends, are living the kind of life most women only fantasize about. With beautiful homes, fulfilling careers, and two adoring husbands, their joy could not be greater, their worlds couldn't be richer.

But suddenly, shattering truths about the loving men they thought they knew turn happiness into anguish and rage. For Karen and Regina, nothing they believed in or cherished can ever be the same as it was.

Yet, in the painful process of starting over, new doors will open, and two women who once had it all will rediscover the power of honesty and friendship ... and learn the true scope and meaning of love.

Love the author's style of writing. Sexy book, intriguing story lines.

Fine and famous, pro golfer Mason has money, respect, a beautiful loving wife and two wonderful kids. Claude's the most successful realtor in the "Black Beverly Hills." And handsome, carefree "baby boy" Torino can pick and choose the honeys he wants to share his time and his bed with.

But beneath the surface of ideal lives are secrets that could shatter 3 perfect dreams and shake a family to its core. Legacies of loss and obligation, of tragedy and madness, threaten everything the Wilsons have worked so hard to achieve, exposing deep wounds that an outside world cannot see -- wounds that can be healed only through honesty and love.

Very interesting book. Not a quick read at all, but very satisfying and thought-provoking.

FROM THE COVER: "If you stare at the red on a rose long enough, it's as if its beauty and its virtue are somehow flawed. That's what I am. I'm the red on a rose."
