Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Author Notes

Summary: New, from the number one bestselling author ofHand-me-down HeartacheandSororitySisters, a novel about five women on the verge of turning thirty, whose lives are changed forever when they meet through a national radio contest At first glance, you couldn't find five women more different. Catara is a personal shopper in New York who dreams of becoming a fashion designer. Embarrassed by her weight, she lets a lack of self-confidence derail her goals. In Atlanta, Lashawnda has gone from a string of bad relationships with men into one with a woman that doesn't seem much better. Elise is realizing her dream of opening up a gymnastics school in Louisville, Kentucky, but between working and taking care of her grandmother, she can't find much time to nurture herself. Tanya's relationship with her boyfriend is at the breaking point. She's ready to leave Chicago and fast city living to settle down and have a family, but her man isn't on the same page. Alecia lives in Los Angeles and has been getting by on her looks for a long time, but when her (married) boyfriend makes it clear that his wife comes first, she has to realize that beauty fades and she must prepare for her future. But these women do have something in common--they all share the same birthday and are about to turn thirty. When the number one syndicated black radio show in the country sponsors a Night Before Thirty Getaway Weekend, these women meet, and while their time together is brief, the impact they have upon one another's lives is everlasting.
