Editorial Reviews

Essence
...a delicious cocktail with a lot of zing...secrets, lies and alibis..
Kirkus Reviews
Four African-American sorority sisters and a deep, dark (ho-hum) secret. Jessica, Shereen, Ellie, and Yolanda were the Fabulous Four at Howard University: inseparable then, and, ten years later, still very much a part of each others' lives. Jessica hosts a TV talk show and is happily married to Douglas, a producer. Douglas wants a baby but Jessica, at a turning point in her career, isn't sure she's ready. She's agreed to try but is secretly on the Pill. Ellie is getting over an affair with a married man and making ends meet as a movie extra. Shereen is still single, fed up with men at the moment, overwhelmed, and working overtime as a financial manager for her father's design company. Yolanda is a lawyer, now divorced, in love with a mystery man. The others can't wait to meet him-and, yo, he turns out to be Shereen's old flame Terrence. Hearing that Yolanda and Terrence have plans to marry infuriates Shereen, who slaps Yolanda hard enough to knock her down. The faithful sisterhood shrugs this off as payback for some long-ago insult back at college. And speaking of payback: Years ago, Jessica fell in love with one of her professors, not knowing he was married and got pregnant. Then the prof killed himself when she decided to charge him with rape. The whole affair has come back to haunt her: someone's been sending threatening letters-plus the professor's old love letters-to Jessica, who turns to her loyal girlfriends for help, since they stood by her even then. Jessica hadn't wanted to have an abortion. Shereen, Ellie, and Yolanda pointed out that the professor lied to her and took advantage of her innocence, and they encouraged her to charge him-but then Jessica eventually miscarried. Sowho's out to get her now? The answer will surprise no one. Routine story, pat resolution, interchangeable characters: a buppie soap opera from first-timer Perrin.

    Alright

    When push came to shove the book was okay. Through the title did connect to the story, but its not exactly what you would expect.It shows goods and bad side of friendship.

    Good Book!

    This book was really good! The plot was unpredictable! WHen I got to certain revelations in the book, I had to go back a few chapters and read it again to put 2 and 2 together.

    Okay

    Don't get me wrong, the actual summary, dialogue, and organization of the book were fine. But I was rather dissappointed that the 'secret' had nothing to do with being in a sorority. Matter of fact, the whole sorority deal was just a way to connect the women. The title was a little misleading so when I found out the big secret, I was like 'Ugh, that's it?!' I thought it was going to be some big pledging deal--instead it was something any extremely dumb, sensitive girl would've done. I also didn't understand why the messenger wasn't questioned which easily made me figure out who was behind the threats. There were MANY moments of sappiness towards the end that made me go 'Okay, you all are tight, move on with the story' and after awhile, I just wanted it to end. It was okay, but I wasn't impressed.

    Page Turner!!!!!

    I was caught from the first chapter! I thought she captured the friendship of these sisters very well. I loved all the drama! I was shocked at some of the secrets as they were revealed. I thought the ending was a bit 'unrealistic' and but it was still a WONDERFUL book. I've shared it with some of my friends and they all loved it.

    It's not a book about Greek Life!!1

    While a really good book, the title is deceiving. IT focuses on the relationship of four Greek sisters, not their experience in a sorority. Parrin is a good writer!
