Just Deserts (4.5), the final installment of the Foster Wives stories, is the dessert after a fine meal. Brenda Jackson's gift for storytelling easily shines through characters with multilayered personalities, a plot that leaves no room for error and an entertaining story. Tristan Adams has been carrying a torch for his best friend and business partner Danielle Timmons for a long time. Danielle has no idea that he has feelings for her when she meets and marries Marc Foster. When Marc dies, she learns that he had two, possibly three, other wives. As she tries to figure out what Marc did and why, the wives become friends and give each other advice and support. They force Danielle to acknowledge her feelings for Tristan, despite her hesitation after Marc's deception.
