Amanda, Dee and Pam have come a long way since they were schoolgirl friends. Pam is now a ruthless, highly successful attorney. Amanda is a single mother, raising a daughter, Tracey, on her own and working as a paralegal in Pam's law firm. Dee, the most troubled of the three friends, has completed law school at Columbia but never brought herself to take the bar exam that would make her a working lawyer. Instead, she lies and pretends to be anything but what she really is, an airline flight attendant. As to romance, Amanda has formed a strong relationship with tough but delightful Melvin until Tracey's father reenters the picture after an absence of seventeen years. Pam is pursued by Marco, a wealthy Italian psychiatrist but pushes him away. She suffered a miscarriage and the loss of her fiance years before and is frightened of commitment. Dee tells lies that she regrets. The last lie might make her lose her longtime friend Sedrick forever as a result. Can these three women find true love before it is too late?

"Destination D" is a well-written romance with a plot that twists and turns believably to its happy ending. The friction between the characters is excellent as is their dialogue. The story zips along at a pace that will keep the readers absorbed. This is a novel that all romance readers should read and enjoy as Pam, Dee and Amanda are African-American, beautiful, screwed-up (in Dee's case), full of moxy and good at withstanding adversity, and totally delightful, believable heroines. "Destination D" is a novel that belongs in libraries, public and personal, everywhere. Don't pass it by!
