Widow Thea Morgan can boast of a successful career at Petro Chem, but her current dilemma still manages to frazzle her. She must decide if attending her sister's third wedding is a good idea. After convincing herself she should be there, Thea runs into her first love, Xavier Thornton. Seeing him brings back some intense emotions, and she isn't sure how to sort through them. An ex-football star turned reverend, Xavier can't help but try to maneuver himself back in her life, even after so many years of separation. He doesn't know that Thea has a secret, one that could completely alter their blossoming relationship.

Comfortably paced with an interesting story, CROSSING THE LINE deals with some serious issues, giving the reader a little "food for thought." The writing was smooth, the story believable and the characters beyond likeable. The secondary characters added a little spice to the story without overpowering it. (Aug., 336 pp., $6.99)
