Why I'm Excited:
I can't wait to read this. Beverly does an amazing job writing fun strong characters and fantastic witty female leads. Her male characters are amazingly strong, virile and know a good woman when they meet her. She never fails to share an amazing story and impart some great lessons about Black lives post Civil War. I have loved all the others I've read and just know this is going to be amazing. I didn't even really look up the synopsis until now, as soon as the link appeared to pre-order I did just based on her catalog.
