I have read the copy of True Lies, and I did not know that it had a continuing book to it, since finding out about it, I can not find this book anywhere, and I am having a feild day being upset because I can not find it. My biggest thing is wanting to know what will the outcome be. I have read the insert that is on the computer for the few things that it says , it keeps me starving for more. signed joyWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

What I like about 'This Time' is Ms Hodge brought Gina, Rick, Dajah & Tarika's characters to full circle. When the book was finished everyone was doing something positive with there lives. At first I thought Rick & Dajah would get back together. But then I realized that they had really out grown each other. They had to find there real soulmates and I think they did.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

What I like best about Margaret Johnson-Hodge is she keeps it real. In THIS TIME Rick is a prison guard at Rikers, Gina works at a bookstore and some of the other characters work at McDonalds. These are people I know, people who I can relate to. In THIS TIME Ms. Johnson-Hodge paints a very colorful tapestry of people of color living and loving in the city of New York. The characters are people that you care about and the book is a real page turner. I enjoyed it very much.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Not too long ago Rick Timmons chose his now five years old daughter Kanisha rather than the woman he loves Dajah Moore after his beloved forced him to choose because she insisted ¿no more madness¿ following the nasty behavior of the mother Gina Alexander. Dajah left, but Rick is back and wants a second chance. Now twenty-three Gina apparently has turned her life around with a job at a Jamaica, Queens library and is making efforts to regain the friendship of a close pal, but she is also getting back with the pot. So once again her actions jeopardize their daughter and a second chance with Dajah even if she agreed to one......................... While Rick struggles with what is best for his daughter, Dajah meets Jeff Gingham, who wishes he was younger as he sees his eight years as being too much a gap. A couple of weeks later, Jeff¿s dog Kelly runs from him when he notices Dajah. The dog runs to greet her. Jeff follows. Jeff and Dajah start to see one another, but she has doubts following the disaster of her last relationship and he firmly believes she needs someone her age, but a matchmaking canine thinks otherwise.......................... . As expected from Margaret Johnson-Hodge, THIS TIME is a terrific urban relationship drama that brings to life Queens New York through the actions and reactions of an ensemble cast. The key to this fine tale is that the prime players and their particular angst seem real. Readers who appreciate a deep character study that looks closely at the desires, needs, and consternations of four individuals and to a lesser degree two others, go no further than Ms. Johnson-Hodge; she is one of the best...............
