Ms. Hubbard has done her thing once again with this great read. If you are familiar with her writing style then you why she's called the Queen of Cliff Hangers and in this book she does her thing once again.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mystery. August 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is nothing sweet about coming home to Detroit, after being away for so long when you have to attend your best friend’s funeral after an apparent suicide. Jode Price is doubtful that her friend Kasey took her own life, so much so that she begins to probe into the details surrounding Kasey’s death. Memories from the past start to surface as Jode’s feeling that the suicide may in fact be a murder heightens, but unfortunately all involved want to keep the past closed, especially Stephen, Kasey’s brother.
An interesting mystery where at first I didn’t understand the past relationship between Jode and Stephen. I wasn’t sure if the author was trying to portray an almost shy but guilty teenaged boy or a molester. Some editing issues were present, but I liked the story and the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read March 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a great read. It had a bit of mystery, and love thrown in as well. The back story of Jode and Stephen was sooooo good and interesting. It really made this book a complete page turner. The ending was very unexpected. I am really enjoying this authors writing style. Her books never have a dull moment, and keep me interested. Sylvia Hubbard is quickly becoming one of my favs.

Great Read! Sylvia always brings it. I love the authentic struggle and play she delivers in all of her stories between both the lead male and female character of each of her books. A taste of Redemption, and Sweet Revenge in every step. It gets good y'all. From beginning to end your senses will be titillated. Enjoy .'-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Red Heart October 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This writer is one of my favorite. Though there are some literary no- no's throughout the book, Sylvia was none the less loyal to her conviction of unwinding a tale full of betrayal and mystery. I love how the book begins with a crime that eventually unleashes an infectious power of curiosity, love, lust, jealousy and hate. I can't wait to read another one of this author's mysteries. AND BEFORE she publishes it, I will truly be honored to serve as a ghost editor for the book. Good job Sylvia!

Wow, what a story! The chemistry that they had for each other was amazing. To know that you love someone that early in life is a great find. Red and Jobe has a great story to tell, and Ms. Hubbard captured that wonderfully.

More About the Author

Detroit native, Sylvia Hubbard, a single mother of three, has worked tirelessly to promote and encourage emerging writers in Michigan. She independently published her first romance novel in 2000 and has continued to write in that genre, sometimes venturing into other subgenres. Always urban and contemporary styled, her writing is enjoyed all over the world. She has published 6 paperbacks and over 30 e-books.

The same year she published, Ms Hubbard also created Motown Writers Network to fill the lack of education and networking for Michigan authors online and offline. By 2004, she was frustrated that all the literary conferences had moved too far away from the city and co-created The Essence of Motown Literary Jam Conference held only in the City of Detroit annually.

In addition to romance writing, Hubbard has been featured at various conferences and workshops all over the United States and Canada, where she has taught authors how to sell their books on the Internet. She also published Internet Marketing for Writers & Businesses as a resource for those unable to attend her workshops. In the upcoming year, she will be featured in several anthologies and plans to publish additional e-books.

"I'm no superwoman," she states with a smile that seems infinite on her lips. "I'm just being an asset in the world instead of a liability."

Considered an addicted blogger by, nominated and recognized for her literary work in the Metro Detroit area, referred to as "A Literary Diva" by Detroit City Council and donned "Cliffhanger Queen" by her readers, she finds solace in speaking and educating on a variety of topics.

Her subjects range from Creative Intimacy, Single Parenting, Blogging, E-Books, Publishing (all aspects i.e.: writing, publishing, marketing & promoting online & offline), and personal triumphs with inspiration mixed in.

Never a disappointment, Sylvia Hubbard, has spoken in front of thousands all over the United States and Canada. Check out her website at
