On the eve of her wedding Carmen Taylor runs to her best friend's rescue as she flees her abusive fiancé. Before the night is over, Carmen has determined that her life must take another direction, and a murder has taken place. Monroe gives us complex and richly drawn characters amid a contemporary Southern background. Lizan Mitchell's expressive narration makes the characters and their plight memorable. Whether a ghetto princess, a brute of a man, or a Creole vixen, Mitchell gives each a distinctive and authentic voice. While somewhat a soap opera, this is a highly entertaining audiobook. P.R.
