"A Woman's Worth" by Chicki Brown contemporary women's fiction that will keep you turning the pages until the end. This author did a wonderful job with "A Woman's Worth" in bringing to the reader a well written script in this first series. In this read there are two main characters Gianne Marvray and Marc Stafford. Gianne who had been a 'school media specialist,' had been ill with the battle of cancer and now her health was looking so much better in that she wanted to 'see new places, meet new people and experience new things...however, she never knew that meeting the Stafford family and especially Marc would be a life change for her. Marc was a 'Las Vegas personal trainer and raw vegan food advocate' which as a good thing for him however, his father Dr. Victor Stafford Sr. did not like his career choice...saying it was 'a ridiculous waste of his son's life.' Now after four years, we find Marc on his way home to visit his family which included his five brothers. Three of his brothers were also doctors. Would this be a good visit for him or would it be a battle to keep his calm with his father? This visit had been for his brother Vic who was celebrating his promotion to 'Chief of Surgery.' Little did Marc know at this time that Gianne, his father and brother Vic's patient had been invited to this celebration too. Why did Dr. Stafford invite her to this family gathering? Now, to find this out and all the rest of it all you must pick up "A Woman's Worth" to see what all this author has in store for these two people. With Marc being a twin it is very interesting to see how the brothers got alone and which one that didn't. Will Gianne be impressed after meeting Marc? Will she want his style of life...being a vegan...What all will she get out of this...good health and love?
Be ready for a lots to go on in this well written novel and I don't want to give too much away but since this is a series... be ready for the story to continue. The characters were all well portrayed, strong and well developed giving this novel a real amazing appeal especially those hot blooded 'Stafford Brothers.' I enjoyed this novel and can't hardly wait for next series dealing with those brothers.

This story was superbly written. The title is telling. Women sometimes measure their worth in many ways. For Gianne, getting a clean bill of health after going through two years of cancer treatment was freeing, but still not enough for her to see her true worth. Enter Marc Stafford, the fourth son of the oncologist that treated Gianne, who seems to know almost instantly that this woman is a rare gem, one that he is willing to do almost anything to connect with. We get introduced to the Stafford family, which while successful is by no means perfect. They have complicated layers of sibling rivalry and parental disappointment. Still, they fill you with a warm feeling and I look forward to getting to know them better in future stories of Chicki Brown.
I love the way Chicki Brown takes us through the emotional roller coaster of a cancer survivor, while also acquainting us to the healthy eating lifestyle of raw vegans. I guarantee you will be at least curious about this way of eating before you finish! This story has all the ingredients of a true love story. It was beautifully written, you will not be disappointed!
