Image of Take Your Pleasure Where You Find It

Mason's book, reminiscent of Shirley Conran's Lace, leaves you with more questions than answers, the most obvious being, what does the title of the book have to do with the story? The premise is a good one, but the author takes too long to get to the climax.
By the time the story reaches its peak, there are only a couple of chapters
left, and the author doesn't get the chance to fill in the missing details.
An incomplete story makes for a
frustrating read.

Tasha is a 30-year-old woman who has spent all of her life wondering who her birth mother is. All she has to go on is a newspaper clipping of three high school girls who dropped her off at a hospital in a duffel bag.

After a private investigator identifies them as Renetta, Freddie and Phyllis, it's up to Tasha to find out once and for all who really gave birth to her. In addition to their 30-year-old secret, the now-grown high school friends are forced to face their own demons from the past and the present. (ST. MARTIN'S, Mar., 320 pp., $23.99)
