BREAKING ALL MY RULES
Hickman’s latest moves like a stock car race of endurance with several contenders maneuvering toward the finish line under caution flags and pile-ups on the track of life. The author captures the euphoria, turbulence, ecstasy and pitfalls of love competing against racial and social class differences. She deftly builds to the suspenseful climax as Erica, a beautiful boutique owner from old money, falls for fellow juror Jerome, a blue-collar worker with a checkered past. This is a phenomenal read.
