A Novel

Tai, Nevada, and Candace—who cherish their sisterly bond of exotic vacations, ladies nights, and unbreakable camaraderie—reunite in this dramatic sequel to The Next Phase of Life.

A savvy entrepreneur, happily married woman, and now the mother of a precious baby girl, Tai Wilson’s life couldn’t be more complete. But just when she’s getting comfortable in her new lifestyle, she starts to suspect that someone is stalking her, attempting to make her world miserable. Or is her mind playing tricks on her?

When things go awry, Tai recruits her intuitive sidekick, Nevada, a successful Washington, DC-based detective who took down a pair of bank robbers. But even the seasoned sleuth is in for a shock when she discovers who the culprit is…

Meanwhile, fashionista Candace has been enjoying her fiancé of two years and patiently waiting for that permanent diamond on her finger. Once the ultimate pursuer of adventurous men, she was swept away by Don, a pilot who took her all over the world. But despite these pleasurable heights, she becomes disenchanted. Something is amiss and she can’t figure out what’s keeping him single. So just like Tai, Candace decides to call on Nevada’s good instincts for her own purpose—to open the cloud surrounding her fiancé.

It’s another phase of life for Tai, Nevada, and Candace, and a lot of questions are up in the air: Who’s trying to ruin Tai’s life? How will Nevada track down the elusive stalker? And will Candace’s dreams of married life ever come true? Add to the mix Tai’s younger sister, who has her own complicated relationships to sort out, and life for these three girlfriends is Under Wrapped.
