“Avery studied her for a moment. Two things made him a good detective; one was his intuition he listened to it, and trusted it, and the other was his ability to judge character, right on, usually within minutes meeting a person. Miss Darden here surely had her [stuff] together, and Miss Lucy could’ve very well walked on water, but no person in her right mind could truly be that cool knowing that her mother abandoned her in the lobby of a hospital emergency room.
‘Tasha Darden is a name someone at social services picked out of a hat and gave to me. I need to know my real name, Mr. Avery.’
‘I can’t promise any miracles,’ he said, solemnly.
‘I don’t expect miracles,’ she said softly. But I do expect to be able to look into my own mother’s eyes at least once in my lifetime. I just want to know where I came from. I think she owes me that much. Don’t you?’”

After growing up in foster care, Tasha’s decided it’s time to find her birth mother. She’s narrowed her search down to three best friends, sure that one of them will have the answers she seeks.
Abandoned by her own mother, Renetta had no relief from her abusive marriage—until her husband suffered a suspicious stroke. Phyllis sacrificed everything for her high-profile career. Now it looks like her decisions are about to come back and bite her. And Freddie’s been looking for something to spice up her empty-nester life—like writing erotica novels. But a shared secret these women have been hiding the past 30 years has a face, a name and a mission and Tasha’s not going to stop until she meets the woman who gave her life—then took off.

This book was pathetic!!!! First and foremost the name ABSOLUTELY does not fit the story line at all!!! Secondly, the author basically beat a dead horse and went in circles, then last but definitely not least, once she FINALLY did reveal the mother not only was I practically disinterested, but NOTHING happened!!! I ONLY finished this book because I was without my TV for the weekend.....if I had a choice, I would have gladly watched repeat episodes of CSI!!!!

This book was pretty good. The title and cover page did not fit the storyline. I kinda of figured out who the mother was, even though at times I wasn't sure. There seems like there will be a sequel and if there is one, I will be reading it. I would like to know the outcome of Phyllis, Renetta, Freddie and Tasha. They were some very interesting characters.
This book wasn't that bad, it just took wayyyyy too long to discover who the main character was really looking for. There was not enough good stuff in between to stretch the book out as long as it was stretched out. It seems like a sequel may come of this. Let's hope not :)
JD Mason's "Take you pleasure where you find it" is good read. I have become a fan of Mason's novels. This was a good read. Not no where near a fasinating as her pervious novels. She let me down with the story line in this one, but it was ok.
I've read all of the author's novels and I enjoyed this one the least. However, the story line is left open for a sequel. If this is true maybe part two will be better. Oh and J.D. Mason this is the second novel you created with a character into S&M........enough already.
