Overview

The author of Loose Ends returns with a novel of a woman who can almost convince herself that love doesn't matter.

Mercedes needs men for one thing only-and it has nothing to do with her heart. Growing up with her mother has made her sure of that. Now Mercedes has to travel home to South Georgia, where her mama, Miss Betty, is recovering from surgery. Back to the rickety old house that holds a lot of memories for her. If she could only learn to deal with the bad ones.

Because a man has come into her life, a fine, bald-headed, church-going black man-the kind of man Mercedes never dared believe in. And she's going to have to get herself together to deal with what Darius is doing to her life-and with what he's hiding about his own.

Author Biography: Electa Rome Parks lives with her husband, Nelson, and two children. With a B.A. in marketing, she is currently working on her next novel and fulfilling her passion as a writer.

I've read both Ties that Bind and Loose Ends by this author and was not disappointed. her stories are real and give honest insight into relationships and how love can make a man or woman do the unthinkable.

This is the first book I am reading from this author, but it won't be the last. I truly recommend it to anyone thats looking for a great short read! Had me engrossed from page one til the end. I am gonna check out her other books. Keep up the good work Electa!

This book was nothing like the last two. I was very disappointed. Everything was so predictable-no juicy twists and turns. It was borderline boring and took me almost 2 weeks to finish.

W O W!!! this author is off the chain. A friend loaned me her book Loose ends, and I couldn't put it down, now I'm going out to buy all of her novels, she is a talented author
