BIG GIRLS DO CRY
In this sequel to Something on the Side, Weber masterfully shapes his characters and titillates with explosive and simmering action while developing each scene at a steady pace. The first-person point of view and vivid dialogue work wonderfully to engage the reader. It's full of drama and loaded with surprises.
Isis resents her younger sister's blissful and wealthy marriage, especially since it's to her ex-fiance, Rashad. Egypt will live to rue the day she invites her mentally unstable, selfish sister to live with them. Another Big Girls Book Club member, Lorraine, owns a PR firm, but her own personal relations are crashing. Her best friend, Jerome, despises her husband, and when told he's cheating on her, Jerome plays matchmaker to get even. (DAFINA, Feb., 336 pp., $24.00)
