    ENJOYABLE

    I sent my husband to the bookstore for a book that was recommended to me by a friend. My husband on returning home said that the bookstore did not have that book. He then told me that this book caught his eye and he got it for me. Well I was so glad that he did. What a joy to read. I was very inpress with the book. I fell in love with the Grandmother charater. I tell you those grandsmothers are always looking out for their babies. I got a good laugh from that. It also took me a minute to figure out that Lee and Jamal was the same person. Great Work. Lynn Emery I like your writing style. Can't wait to read another book from this author. THANKS................

    well written, fun to read ethnic romance

    In Louisiana, African-American Charlene Noble visits her former white lover John Mandville with a request for the daughter they had out of wedlock. Following a divorce, Andrea is returning home from Chicago and Charlene wants John to use his influence to obtain the position of Director of the Bayou Blue Public Health Clinic for her. Reluctantly John agrees and procures the job for Andrea. <P> Private investigator Jamal Turner is quite the hunk, but Andrea quickly categorizes him as a ¿serial¿ lover and not for her. He is undercover investigating Andrea, but soon wants her under his covers so they can investigate one another. As they become better acquainted they fall in love, but will their two strong personalities allow for a permanent relationship especially since she is the target of his probe? <P> GOTTA GET NEXT YOU is heat sister heat as the lead characters find one another to be quite the temptation. The story line is fun and steamier than the Bayou in August. The cast is strong and the story line loaded with twists that add up to a well written, fun to read ethnic romance. <P>Harriet Klausner
