"I guess that on some days, and maybe for some, every day, people other than me could be found walking into their workplace pretending to be someone they're not...
...Today was my first time feeling so acutely aware of that disconnect."
Thirty-three-year-old Tabitha Walker thought she was living her "best life" completely under control. She had Marc, her sexy, smooth and successful "paper-perfect" Porsche-driving boyfriend; a coveted position as a local news reporter; and weaving it all together, a standing hair appointment with a reliable stylist.
But it's funny how life can interrupt even the best planning.
Tabitha's fortunes take a turn when she learns that the family she always hoped for could slip away -- and not just because Marc has been slow to propose.
When her otherwise enviable body starts to fail in a surprising way, Tabitha must embark on a journey, supported by colorful family and friends, to reclaim her own quirky version of "black girl magic" before the unexpected takes more from her than just her dreams of becoming a wife and mother.
A well-written and relatable "chocolate chick lit" dramatic comedy -- perfect for fans of Terri McMillan, Sophie Kinsella, Trisha R. Thomas, Eric Jerome Dickey, Omar Tyree, E. Lynn Harris, Kimberla Lawson Roby.
