Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"I am not young, or thin, or white, or beautiful. I'm a slightly thick sista, but I know how to fix myself up. And I'm on the radio. My name is Daphne Dupree, and I play the blues."

Author April Sinclair dazzled readers with her award-winning novel Coffee Will Make You Blackand its sassy, life-affirming sequel, Ain't Gonna Be the Same Fool Twice.Now she weaves humor and truth into another emotionally rich and beautifully textured tale--and introduces her most vibrant and unforgettable character yet.

Synopsis:

Chicago deejay Daphne "Dee Dee" Dupree is sassy and successful—but a series of catastrophic relationships has left her gun-shy. Now with her own life and the lives of those closest to her seemingly coming apart at the seams, she's going to have to leave the safe cocoon of her broadcasting booth to face her world, her secrets, and a new promise of mature love fearlessly and head-on.

Synopsis:

In spite of all the personal turmoil surrounding her, Daphne Dupree is keeping her back door open, just in case something romantic happens to drop by. And it's just open enough to let sexy and sensitive Skylar walk right in with all of his own cumbersome baggage.
