The Candy Shop

Thursday, December 31, 2009

Having no regards for people, their property and even her own life, Faith Simmons has done everything from selling off her life’s fortune, to selling her body, and stealing, all because of her sweet addiction for The Candy Shop. Looking back ten years, who would have ever thought that this well-respected and very well paid thirty-one year old assistant principal for a performing arts school would trade in her six-year marriage, a two-story brick home in a gated community and a 2007 Jaguar, for a body riddled with track marks and a substance that gives her a better feeling than sex. When that candy, as she knows it, finally runs out; she resorts to the ‘desperate times calls for desperate measures’ solution; which will have her playing Russian roulette with the angel of death. And sooner than later, these episodes will catch up with her, so she will be forced to make some life altering choices, but will it be too late?

Up To No Good

Sunday, December 13, 2009

Carl Weber, the New York Times bestselling author of Something on the Side, introduces a deliciously dysfunctional family. . .

There is always a man around the corner. Church trustee James Black should know--he's usually that man, carrying on affairs with married women and sleeping with one conquest after another. But when he suddenly finds himself truly in love, his relationship quickly generates a ripple effect of shocking proportions....

The other women in James's church have a thing or two to say about his newfound love--including his daughter, Jamie. Only six months younger and a former friend of his new flame, Jamie has every intention of dismantling the relationship. But her plate becomes full when she discovers a mystery woman has been secretly calling her lover, Louis.

James's son, Darnel, always swore he wouldn't be a player like his father. His life is the picture of monogamy--until he catches his fiancée cheating with his best friend. From that point on he spirals out of control.

James knows he's largely to blame for the turmoil that surrounds him and his loved ones. Now he'll have to find a way to bring peace to their lives. But he can only do it by facing some hard truths about himself and changing his scandalous ways.
