A broken promise from their school days at Spelman College takes three successful friends in Atlanta to an unexpected destination of discord, duplicity, and denial. ¬ Their personal demons drastically alter their friendship and their life’s destiny.

The first friend leads a secret life of multiple personas that allows her to escape her own reality and ease into a life of deception long before her true identity is discovered.

At the pinnacle of her career, the second friend is self-driven, sexually suppressed, and highly explosive . . . blowing up at anyone that crosses her path. Her domineering ambition drives her into a collision course with herself and steers her in an unexpected direction that becomes life-altering.

¬The third friend is a single mother seeking refuge from a regretful past that has finally caught up with her present. Just when she thinks her future is solid, it begins to crumble as her fate is altered by a past romance which resurfaces . . . resulting in an unexpected resolution.

Author Lori Beard-Daily has also written stage plays: Trunk of Fate, Daddy's Girl and Civil Unrest, two of which were directed and produced by the late theatre thespian, Carol Mitchell-Leon.

Destination D, A Novel is a great story with well-developed characters and an engrossing storyline that keeps you going from the first chapter. Three friends from college, who thought they'd spend the rest of their lives together, find their lives diverging and (somewhat) spiraling out of control. We get to go on the ride with them and there's never a dull moment. It's a "must-read"!!

Reviewed by Alice D. for Readers Favorite Amanda, Dee and Pam have come a long way since they were schoolgirl friends. Pam is now a ruthless, highly successful attorney. Amanda is a single mother, raising a daughter, Tracey, on her own and working as a paralegal in Pam's law firm. Dee, the most troubled of the three friends, has completed law school at Columbia but never brought herself to take the bar exam that would make her a working lawyer. Instead, she lies and pretends to be anything but what she really is, an airline flight attendant. As to romance, Amanda has formed a strong relationship with tough but delightful Melvin until Tracey's father reenters the picture after an absence of seventeen years. Pam is pursued by Marco, a wealthy Italian psychiatrist but pushes him away. She suffered a miscarriage and the loss of her fiance years before and is frightened of commitment. Dee tells lies that she regrets. The last lie might make her lose her longtime friend Sedrick forever as a result. Can these three women find true love before it is too late? "Destination D" is a well-written romance with a plot that twists and turns believably to its happy ending. The friction between the characters is excellent as is their dialogue. The story zips along at a pace that will keep the readers absorbed. This is a novel that all romance readers should read and enjoy as Pam, Dee and Amanda are African-American, beautiful, screwed-up (in Dee's case), full of moxy and good at withstanding adversity, and totally delightful, believable heroines. "Destination D" is a novel that belongs in libraries, public and personal, everywhere. Don't pass it by!
