Keep smiling, keep shining,
Knowing you can always count on me,
for sure, that`s what friends are for.
For good times, and bad times,
I`ll be on your side forevermore,
That`s what friends are for....

Kailah Carter and Mona Richards met at the University of Florida and became fast friends. This unlikely duo came from opposites sides of the track. Mona is the only child of rich socialites, while Kailah, the only girl of five children, is from a working class family. Her parents provided the necessities: food, clothing and shelter. Despite their differences, their bond is so strong that they love each other like sisters. A sisterhood bond that they thought was unbreakable until one betrayed the other in the worst way possible - she slept with her man. Turning their backs on each other and their friendship, they each head in different directions in life. Each not being completely whole or happy without the other.

Kailah, living in Chicago, is successfully climbing the corporate ladder. She meets the man of her dreams in client Keith Terrance. But Keith is living a lie. A lie that could have serious repercussions on Kailah and their life together.

Mona, living in Miami, has watched her blossoming career as an attorney take a tragic downward spiral. The tables have turned as Mona is now struggling with her financial situation and the aftermath of a life altering event. A light appears at the end of the tunnel as Mona meets Davis Simpson. Davis is the man of her dreams minus his two spoiled teenage daughters and a crazy ex-wife determined to be apart of his future and not the past.

Mixed Messages started slow and somewhat confusing with a skewed time-line. I contemplated putting the book down, but I kept going. I'm glad that I did as the book did pick up. Now the time-line on the other hand remained skewed. There were times where you didn't know where you were in time or chunks of time passed without explanation. Weeks and months came and went with the flip of a page. Fortunately the ongoing drama in the lives of Kailah and Mona made up for the confusion and lapses. Solid debut effort. I look forward to Ms. Williams' sophomore novel.

'Mixed Messages' was a story of two young ladies (one from California and the other from Florida) who meet while attending college in Florida both became sorority sisters. They remained friends after college graduate, but not without having heavy, conflicting strain on their friendship. The story picks up momemtum as you near the middle of the book, drawing interest in the plot. Ms. Williams did a nice job in keeping the drama real in the life of the two friends, Kailah and Mona....and yes, you guessed it - there are MANY mixed messages in the story, sparking the interest to read on. This two young ladies through their pains of life, after college graduation, come to grip with a firm belief and conviction of their faith in God. Kailah takes it a step further and yields her life to salvation with a dedicated commitment to Jesus Christ after her friend Mona rejects their friendship. Mona became righteously indignant with Kailah for betraying her and sleeping with Mona's man behind her back. It's not until the tables turn on Kailah and she gets a taste of her own medicine that she takes it a step further and makes the decision to seek refuge in committing her life to Jesus Christ. Kailah tries to hold on to her committment and does really well for a lengthy good amount of time...but then, whoops!!! Those unruly hormones of hers totally take over again and girlfriend is almost out of control. The waters took her under and she's swimming for her life. What happens in the end???? ....read it for yourself. It's a good book for your time. GOOD PEOPLES ARC Book Club Inc. Star Rating*** 3.5

When I read this book all I could think about was the people I knew that acted just like that in real life. And the ending of this book-- well you just never know what to expect!

This book was a complete surprise. I have read books by some talented writers but I had to say this was up there at the top. Kailah was my girl and I didn't want to see Keith end up in prison but that's what happen when you don't get out the game soon enough.
