eet Joyce, Janeen, and Sissy-sisters who think they are close, but who each carry a heavy load of secrets. Joyce, the oldest, is struggling with the past-she wants to share with Sissy the horrifying truth about their family history, but Janeen won't hear of it. Janeen is the middle sister, the one who's always been sensible, but now her life is spinning out of control. She's been passed over for a promotion for the second time, her husband has been distant, and a mysteriously sexy man has entered her life. Sissy, the youngest by more than a decade, has the most dangerous secrets of all, including dirty real-estate deals and her friendships with the young women who are paid mistresses to Dallas's powerful men. The combin--ation is explosive, and it only takes one very hot secret agent to set off a whole powder keg of emotions. What's a Woman to Do? is fast-paced but also soulful, dramatic, and true.
