Swinson delivers breath-holding
drama as Yoshi slips head-on into seduction and danger in this sequel
to Playing Dirty. Her voice keeps the action vibrant, and the villain and
other characters add even more flavor. This is definitely a must-read to see if the money and cocaine cocktail will retain its allure and topple Yoshi from her high horse.
Yoshi Lomax, a high-profile Miami attorney, has been framed for killing her best friend, a DEA agent. Unable to access her millions, Yoshi hides out with her family in Virginia.
She is put to the ultimate test when her family, new lover and the local kingpin clash, and her life is as rickety as her late father's childhood home. She's going to need more than her grandmother's prayers to protect all that she now holds dear. (DAFINA, Sep., 320 pp., $15.00)
