Whitney is a plus-sized woman who just can't turn down a box of Krispy Kremes or find a man who'll stick around. Taylor is in a long-term relationship with a boyfriend who won't commit to marriage. Charisse is married, with two adorable children, but somehow doesn't have what she wants or needs. When her doormat husband threatens to go public with some very shady practices that Charisse had hoped to keep hidden, only a very risky scheme and the help of her best friends will save her. In a witty, rollicking, and ultimately poignant story, Kimberla Lawson Roby demonstrates the storytelling magic that has won her legions of adoring fans and made her novels bestsellers.

"Grossly overweight, Whitney falls in love with a truly wonderful man; Taylor practices law and wants her boyfriend to commit to marriage; Charisse is a "true Christian" who abuses her husband and belittles her friends. All try to "change faces." Tracey Leigh's narrative is straightforward, bringing forth the strengths and flaws Roby has built into each woman's personality. When Charisse's abusive childhood comes to the fore, life takes a nasty turn. Whitney and Taylor also attempt to resolve their issues. Leigh tries to bring humor to this tale of negativity and abuse in which strong women are brought down by hubris and lack of faith. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
