Eric Jerome Dickey hailed Sharon Mitchell's novel, Nothing but the Rent, as "sparkling, spirited, soulful, and sensational . . . a magnificent debut." The Philadelphia Tribune compared it to the novels of Terry McMillan-"an entertaining and illuminating study of female bonding." Now the acclaimed author gives us Near Perfect, a novel about love and friendship and the powerful ties that hold women-and men-together.
For the past five years, Roxanne's life has been near perfect: Her husband, Jamal, is a football star, and they have a strong relationship. But when tragedy strikes, Roxanne will need all the support she can get. Her old friends Gayle, Monique, and Cynthia, busy with their own lives, come to the rescue. Yet even they are powerless against the scandals and nasty allegations that erupt around her. It is Linc, her husband's best friend, who helps Roxanne cope with her sudden upheavels and notoriety. But a devastating secret and the unexpected appearance of another woman force Roxanne to confront some painful truths-about Jamal, Linc, and herself.
