“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.
