      I loved this story If you find yourself at baby showers than divorce parties, this might not be your thing Lucky for me s totally my thing I love that this author writes about real people with possible stories, but disguises them with humor and intuition I found myself again thinking, I totally know these people I can t wait for her future offerings This and Blueberry Truth have two of my favorites in the last 6 months.

      With three parts humor, one part romance and one part drama, Afterglow is as delicious as India s beloved Cherry Garcia Full review in March 2013 issue of InD tale Magazine.
