Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.

"If Diana could move from the welfare and the housing projects of Detroit to the top of the music charts and starring roles in movies, certainly Blanche could get herself out of this mess she was in, just as black women had been getting themselves and their people out of messes in this country since the day the first kidnapped African woman was dragged onto these shores." ~ pg. 76
Main character Blanche is funny, smart and a southern nosy charmer. She is a character you cannot help but like. I was skeptical of her character from the opening scene but the author did a good job of making readers like and trust Blanche. I will definitely continue reading this series.
