Booklist Review

Hailstock's newest is the second in the Johnson family reunion series, which centers on three African American cousins: Shiri, Brenda, and Essence. The first, Hearts of Steel, by Geri Guillaume [BKL Jl 02], focused on Shiri's love life; now it's Brenda's turn to have her affairs scrutinized by her loving family. Brainy professor Brenda has just arrived at Meyer University in California's Sierra Mountains with only one thing on her mind--building a successful academic career in astronomy--but then she meets sexy geneticist Wes Cooper. He has made a bet that he'll find a wife within the year, and soon Brenda seems to be the odds-on favorite, but will she be able to overcome her feeling that she's no more than a pawn in his game? When Brenda travels to Orlando by train for her family reunion, Wes shows up and tries valiantly to prove that he truly loves her. A fun installment that will leave fans eager for the final cousin to find love. --Patty Engelmann
