The writing would have benefited from more careful editing. I would recommend book this if you're looking for something to read while lying on the beach.
This is not what I expected. This book is about a handful of characters (about 7 families) that are attending a fundraiser gala. Each family has issues or crisis that they are working out. And as we get to know the characters we see how they are connected. I gave this book 3 stars because I found the writing to be very good and the author does an excellent job of keeping everyone straight...

California author J.A. Jackson uses this moniker for publishing her erotic, mature adult,romantic, suspenseful, and entertaining novels with a unique twist. The full form of the pseudonym is Jerreece Ann Jackson as we can see form her blogspot. We can learn more from her statement, `Since 1992 I focused any of my energies in making a difference by helping my community. Most notably at a nonprofit called WPC. I held several positions with WPC including: Newsletter Editor,Grant Writing Committee Chairperson, Press/ Community Relations, Fund Raising Committee Chairperson and the Special Events Committee Chairperson. In 2002 I was nominated to the position of President, which I held for over ten years helping WPC reach its goals and objectives. Now I do something else I have always loved. I write.' And that offers some insight that adds to our appreciation of her talent.
