It's the return of the sistahs! "Tastes Like Chicken" is Lolita Files's much anticipated continuing story of the lives of Misty Fine and Reesy Snowden, the dynamic heroines of the bestselling novels "Scenes from a Sistah" and "Getting to the Good Part." With steamy thrills and disastrous infidelities, Lolita's latest is a tale of two women who find themselves poised at life's crossroads with everything to lose but their friendship.
What's a girl to do when she finds out her man's been feeding her lies? When readers last saw them, Misty had just married her dream man, Rick Hodges, and was off on a fabulous honeymoon. On an equally hopeful note, a pregnant and newly engaged Reesy was riding off into the sunset with her fiance -- reformed ladies' man Dandre Hilliard. But it isn't long before the men start misbehaving again, and in "Tastes Like Chicken, " they get what's coming to them.
Reesy gets the shock of her life on her wedding day, when a vengeful stranger delivers an ugly surprise that gives her serious doubts about the man she loves. Reesy doesn't stick around to hear more bad news -- she hightails it to California, leaving her old life and her fiance behind. Dandre is fast on her heels trying to prove the legitimacy of his feelings, but those California girls prove to be a dangerous distraction, and Reesy herself finds some racy excitement in the heady world of L.A. casting calls and nightclub scenes.
Meanwhile, back on the East Coast, family and friends of both women are wrestling with their own relationship problems. A seductive interloper threatens to upset Reesy's parents' marriage, and Misty and Rick get a surprise of their own, which forces Misty to confront some shocking truths about the man she married. With her best friend on the other side of the country, Misty can only hope that she doesn't have to face the future alone.
As fans of these savvy, sexy women know, not much can keep Reesy and Misty from their ultimate dream of "having it all." Filled with the humor and personal drama that made her first books national bestsellers, Lolita Files's "Tastes Like Chicken" takes the sistahs -- and readers -- on their wildest ride yet.
"Sizzling high drama unfolds as Files revisits the lives and loves of two African-American best girlfriends previously featured in Scenes from a Sistah and Getting to the Good Part. The fairy tale nuptials of Teresa 'Reesy' Snowden and reformed skirt-chaser Dandre Hilliard turn nightmarish when photographs of Dandre in flagrante delicto with a couple of hot ladies are discovered under the pews. Chaos ensues, and pregnant, distraught Reesy suffers a fall down the church steps that results in a miscarriage. Reesy's best friend, Armistice 'Misty' Fine, newly married herself, tries to offer support. But she's distraught that she's recently become pregnant despite all efforts at prevention. Reesy makes a fresh start by relocating to Southern California to jump-start her acting career. Desperate Dandre soon follows and reclaims ownership of his dad's beach house, which his party-girl cousins, Zoe and Chloe, have occupied and turned into a 'hoe haven.' Several heartfelt bids for forgiveness, including a boxful of puppies, soften Reesy, but she's still skeptical. Her acting career wobbles thanks to a sleazy 'movie producer,' while back in New York, Misty uncovers the truth about her pregnancy. As if this isn't complicated enough, Reesy's outspoken mother and Dandre's father continue a clandestine long-distance extramarital indulgence that's suddenly not so secret anymore. A Files-style cinematic climax that's both outrageous and funny tapers to an alternately joyful and bittersweet conclusion. A vivid supporting cast and aggressively street-smart dialogue put this hyperactive, immensely enjoyable yarn over the top. Files fans will be panting for more. Agent, Elaine Koster.
