Soon, things are back on track and Alex is well on her way to her "happily ever after." That is, until she makes a discovery that rocks her to her core. When Alex decides to take control of her future, she begins to make some life-altering decisions that set her on the path of fulfilling her goal of having a family. But will she be able to deal with the consequences?
As I sat there on the side of Quincy's bed, the last straw flew in through the bedroom window and landed right on my camel's back. Quincy, my fiancé and the love of my life, was in the shower whistling. He was whistling like he didn't have a care in the world. He was whistling like I wasn't thirty-seven and kicking the hell out of forty. He was whistling like I wasn't unmarried and childless. Like we hadn't been engaged for five years. Five years. He was whistling like he hadn't refused to set a wedding date. Like my biological clock wasn't ticking as loud as a time bomb.
I'd been with Quincy Wright for eight years. I'd been his lover and friend. I'd bent over backwards, neglected my own needs, and done all I could do to be a good woman. I wanted a husband and I wanted children and he knew it. We'd discussed it at length. And what was his response? His black behind was in the shower whistling. That was it and whether he knew it or not, it was over. O-V-E-R

I loved this book. Could not put it down, started reading during my lunch break and kept on reading through the afternoon could have gotten in trouble. But, I couldn't but put it down... I loved all of the characters I could see the whole story unfolding very clearly. It wasn't predictable like some novels I've read. I laughed and cried the ending made me say Ooooh"
TO BRAZIL WITH LOVE As is her style, Adrienne Thompson, takes your heart on a roller coaster ride with one shocking event after the other. Ain't Nobody is a story about Alexandria Weaver and her journey of self discovery. Alex, as she's called, has been in a relationship with Quincy Wright for the past 8 years. At 37, she reaccesses where the relationship is going and decides that she's on a train to nowhereville. When she decides to take a trip to Brazil, by herself, mind you, Alex finds that there are not enough miles in the world to make her forget the wrong that has been done to her. With all of her smarts--she graduated Summa Cum Laude from Baylor University with degree in Business Management; she was a former VP for a beauty cosmetics company, rubbing elbows with Houston's elite; she is a successful novelist whose books are about to be turned into a TV mini-series--she couldn't see the far-reaching effects that a business proposition from a very unlikely source would have on her life. The business proposition set the wheels in motion, and the tone, for everything that would happen afterward. Just when you think Alex has finally come to grips with her life, another secret reveals itself. From her sister to her mother to her best friend, Alex is finding out things that are unsettling and hair-raising. It's a story as much about love and redemption as it is about forgiveness. This book was masterfully crafted. The scenes ebbed and flowed seamlessly, which are the makings of a true page-turner. Kudos, Ms. Thompson, for another dynamic read! I recomnend this book.
Great read, never know which way it will end and never a dull moment!
What an emotionally filled book. it make you laugh, gives you tears, shows you true love, and the importance of forgiveness.Adrienne out done herself with this book. Once I started reading it I could mot put it down. I need a paperback copy of this book. I know I will be reading it again. It leaves you wanting to know what happens Mr and Mrs Castro.
