She pulls out every trick in the book to keep her daughter’s married father out of their lives but keep his money in her bank account...Maxine lives for her family but when her husband’s excessive spending lands them in more debt than they can handle, the stress takes a toll on their perfect marriage...After Joy’s loyalty to her controlling mother causes her to lose the only man she’s ever loved, she marries a man she barely knows. After her wedding, she quickly realizes she made the biggest mistake of her life and it puts everybody she loves in danger. Unfortunately, someone will have to pay the ultimate price with their life.

The relationships I have with my girlfriends inspired me to write "Where Did We Go Wrong?". I wanted to tell a story about everyday women going through issues and difficulties in their lives and how their girlfriends helped them through it. I read so many novels and hear about reality television shows that focus on creating chaos and conflict between women and that’s not good. I wrote this book to show the positive side of true friendship between women.

Where Did We Go Wrong? is an honest portrait of modern relationships. It is part soap-opera, part daytime talk show and part late-night Cinemax movie. Brisk pacing, memorable players and snappy dialogue that will pique readers' interest as the characters struggle to balance their need for love and fulfillment with a desire to live an independent life. An enjoyable, lightweight read for anyone craving a mix of chick-lit drama and spicy romance. ~Kirkus Reviews

I've been an editor for more than 40 years and about 15 years of them were as a free-lancer. This story is excellent, one of the Top 2 I've encountered...great plotting, clearly drawn, sympathetic (or hateful) characters, crisp, realistic dialogue. I'm really impressed. I loved every minute of it. ~Noël Higgins, Editor, Durham, Connecticut
