Meet Whitney, Taylor, and Charisse, three women who have been best friends since high school. However, this devoted troika is about to discover a wave of unexpected troubles.
Whitney is a plus-size woman who just can't turn down a box of Krispy Kremes or find a man who will stay put.
Taylor is in a long-term relationship with a boyfriend who's allergic to commitment.
Charisse is married, with two adorable children, but somehow doesn't have what she really wants--or needs.
Then suddenly Charisse spins out of control. Her doormat husband manages to stand up to her and even threatens to go public with a very shady secret Charisse had hoped to keep hidden, especially from her interfering mother. Desperate, she decides that only a very risky scheme will save her.
One constant for these women has been the support they've offered one another. But this time, how far can friendship go?
In this witty, rollicking, deeply poignant story, Kimberla Lawson Roby demonstrates the storytelling magic that has won her legions of adoring fans and made her novels bestsellers.
