Amanda "Bell" Brown is a single 40-year-old forensic psychologist who is hung up on the handsome but emotionally unavailable police lieutenant Jazz Brown. When Jazz's ex-wife is found murdered in his home, Amanda has to put her feelings aside and figure out whether the man of her dreams might be responsible. Sassy and witty, Bell is the kind of woman readers will want to have as a best friend. A refreshing African American chick-lit entry, Burney's second novel in the "Amanda Bell Brown Mystery" series (after Murder, Mayhem, and a Fine Man) should delight readers who enjoy the works of ReShonda Tate Billingsley (Let the Church Say Amen) or Victoria Christopher Murray (Grown Folks Business). Recommended for women's fiction collections and especially libraries with a demand for African American Christian fiction. Burney lives in Michigan.
