Image of Looking for Trouble (An Unexpected Love Novel)

Looking for Trouble is a fantastic saga about family, friendship, love, status and destiny. Preconceived notions about the type of trouble successful Wall Street banker John Small and his family will endure are cast aside as Hickman draws readers into a story that examines the uncanny connections and parallels among multiple generations. And the beautiful devil-in-a-blue-dress who threatens to usurp John’s dreams and legacy adds more than a little tension and anxiety to the narrative.

John is ready to leave New York and return to his hometown of Nedine, S.C., to open the first black-owned bank. But his business acumen is no match for the scheming of his snooty and treacherous girlfriend, Madeline. John is ready to settle down and experience the type of love his parents share. Anyone trying to stop Madeline from becoming Mrs. Small is in danger — including beautiful attorney and spoken word artist, Alexandria Thornton. (DAFINA, Nov., 336 pp., $15.00)
