Booklist Review

From her successful debut novel, Butterscotch Blues (2000), Johnson-Hodge brings back her characters Sandy and Sandy's best friends, Martha, Britney, and Janice. While Sandy is grieving over the death of her husband, Adrian, from AIDS, her friends are dealing with love, family, and financial issues. To ease Sandy's grief, her brother-in-law, Winston, becomes a safe love interest who accepts being with her more than being loved by her. When she decides to have her basement remodeled, she falls for the handsome carpenter, Randall. She is forced to choose between the two men when Winston confronts her with the truth that she has been unable to see. She shamefully acknowledges that his love and concern allowed her to feel safe because she knew that he would not break her heart or run away scared. Her friends--Martha, the district attorney, Britney, the stay-at-home wife and mom, and Janice, the insecure beauty--continue to provide support to one another through their challenges and frailties. This novel is sure to be as popular as Johnson-Hodge's first novel. --Lillian Lewis


Publisher's Weekly Review

Sisterhood, skin color, self-esteem and sex are just a few of the issues Margaret Johnson-Hodge explores in this plainspoken sequel to Butterscotch Blues. Set in New York City, the novel begins as a grieving wife struggles to recover from the loss of her handsome young Trinidadian husband to AIDS. Adrian was the love of Sandy Hutchinson's life, and she's not sure if she can go on without him. The story follows Sandy's recovery and search for love as she stumbles into a relationship with Adrian's brother, Winston, and finally finds peace with Randall, a contractor, who at first rejects her. Sandy's best friends also struggle in their relationships with men, in a series of Sex in the City-like subplots. "Masterful" Martha, a high-powered assistant district attorney, barely copes on the home front. Abandoned at the altar years ago, she battles her demons by drinking too much, while fighting to keep her relationship with Calvin afloat. Janice, driven by insecurities despite her enviable beauty, drives her fianc? Cliff into the arms of Rachel, who had relinquished him once before to Janice in the name of sisterhood. Then there's Britney, living the American Dream with a magnificent house in the suburbs, a doting husband and beautiful baby, who finds herself pregnant again while confronting the ramifications of living beyond her means. Tackling controversial questions, often in a graphic manner, Johnson-Hodge has written a captivating sequel that loyal readers and new fans will devour. Agent, Claudia Menza. 15-city author tour.
