Overview

When Publisher's Weekly, after reviewing Margaret Johnson-Hodge's 2002 Black Expressions Bestselling novel "True Lies" declared: "Audiences tired of shallow buppie antics will respond favorably to the earthy dramas she describes," and readers enjoyed "True Lies" so much they demanded a sequel, Margaret Johnson-Hodge had no choice but to respond with "This Time."



Dajah Moore is still on her road to recovery after a heart wrenching breakup with Rick Trimmons. Determined to get beyond the whole RIck incident, her struggles grow deeper when Rick shows up at her door step, saying all the things she needed to hear from him months before. But what Rick is saying and what Dajah sees for herself are two different things. Rick says Gina is gone from his life, but as far as Dajah is concerned, Gina hasn't gone far enough. To further complicate things, Dajah meets Jeff Gingham, a man eight years her senior, bringing his own ideas about relationships that don't match her own. With Rick fast on her trail and Jeff moving slowly into her heart, will Dajah get it right this time?
