From the acclaimed author of My Diet Starts Tomorrow -- a sexy and suspenseful novel about love, work, weight, relationships (and murder), that reflects the passionate and empowered woman inside all of us. Ever thought about quitting your job? Murdering your boss? Getting rid of those extra pounds and keeping them off? In her captivating second novel, Laurel Handfield takes readers into the not-very-fulfilling life of twenty-eight-year-old Jordan. When we meet her, Jordan is working as a secretary for an insensitive employer who constantly mistreats her. Lacking in self-confidence, she passively accepts the daily humiliation and degradation. That is, until his partner Trent Prescott engages her in candlelit dinners and sizzling nights of passion. In spite of her insecurities about her self-worth (and weight), Trent makes Jordan feel alive again. Then as sudden violence spirals out of control and suspicion falls on Jordan, Trent reaches out to help her. Can she trust him? Faced with a crisis that will determine the rest of her life, Jordan knows she has to change in order to survive. The only problem is that she may not recognize the woman staring back at her from the mirror. Can love change a woman? Is there such a thing as an ideal soul mate? Filled with rich emotional drama and romantic suspense and featuring an engaging heroine with whom readers will instantly identify, Mirror, Mirror is another winning gem from a wonderful new voice in African-American literature.
