This is an engrossing tale of women taking charge of their lives. Even though there are multiple main characters, the story flows smoothly, and there's no confusion about what's going on at any time. The dialogue is crisp and witty. The characters are richly drawn and are strong, mature women. This is an excellent novel packed with passion and sensuality and sure to be a hit. Hurrah for Jackson!

After a childhood friend
commits suicide, Faith, Monique
and Shannon decide to spend
the summer in Hilton Head, S.C.
As they embrace new ideas and
adventures, they discover more
about themselves and each other.

They meet new men and make
a new best friend. While their
summer starts off sadly, it turns
out to be one of their best ever,
as they find out What a Woman
Wants. (St. Martin's Griffin, Jan., 320
pp., $13.95)
