SOMETHING ON THE SIDE
Although an easy read, at times the story seems to drag on needlessly. But the characters are believable, and readers will be interested enough to read to the end.
Friends Isis, Egypt, CoCo and Tammy make up the Big Girls Book Club, where anyone who wears a size 14 or higher can join. Making their real lives as stimulating as the books they read, each woman is on a quest to find satisfaction, either from her mate or somewhere else. (Dafina, Feb., 320 pp., $24.00)
