Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine having to pay child support for a child you never fathered by a woman you never met.

Parker and Roxanne Redman are desperate for a baby of their own, but neither knew Parker had already fathered a child. After Roxanne’s third miscarriage, they’re flabbergasted when Parker is arrested for non-payment of child support with an outstanding balance of fifty thousand dollars.

     The Redmans’ friends, James and Serena, are in the final stages of a bitter divorce. James struggles to avoid his soon-to-be ex’s volatile temper in hopes of maintaining a relationship with his six-year-old daughter. As James pays the mortgage on a house he was forced to leave, Serena continues her verbal and emotional attacks against him. Just when James thinks his nightmare is finally over, he learns his daughter is not his biological child.

     Lachez Baker is a ghetto-fabulous single mother of three who seems to have it all, thanks to money from her children’s fathers. Her life is filled with designer clothes, endless parties, and a steady cash flow. In addition to the men’s financial support, she’s also running several money-making scams to help make ends meet. But soon, her world collides with the Redmans when Lachez is forced to face a judge and admit she willingly took part in paternity fraud.

Synopsis:

Oh, what a tangled web . . .

Roxanne Redman’s devoted husband, Parker, is shocked when he’s arrested for delinquent child support . . . especially since he doesn’t have any children.

Who’s your daddy?

The Parkers’ best friends, James and Serena Carson, are in the final stages of a bitter divorce. Just when James thinks his nightmare is over, he learns his beloved daughter isn’t his at all. . . .

For the love of money . . .

Lachez Baker is a ghetto-fabulous single mother of three who seems to have it all, thanks to money from her children’s fathers. But soon her life of designer clothes, endless parties, and steady cash collides with the man who’s been the target of her carefully crafted paternity fraud.

From author Pat Tucker comes a drama-filled tale of lies, schemes, and consequences as these unsuspecting men discover the importance of knowing the paternity laws in their state.
