Having It All Ain't Easy.
March Featured Reader Review:
“Blend a 21st-century New Adult version of Waiting to Exhale and “Girlfriends” with candid revelations about traumatic injuries of the spirit reminiscent of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf. Toss in the caustic wisdom of seasoned women a la “Golden Girls” or “Grace and Frankie” into a sometimes exclamatory narrative style familiar to fans of Sophie Kinsella to create this endearing tale that’s provocative, funny and emotionally satisfying…” (4-star review) – Cardyn Brooks, Blerdy Binge Reader and . org

ABOUT THE BOOK
Discover the debut novel by hilarious writer Jayne Allen that she calls “the epitaph of my 30’s.”
…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 disrupt 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.
