SHIRLEY'S PICKS

SAVING HER SHADOW
Lutishia Lovely

I admire the courage, determination, and the stand that eighteen-year-old Raina takes to save her baby sister, Abby. She wants her sister to have a normal childhood instead of living in the rigid cult community her mother married into. Raina calls Abby her ‘Shadow’ because she follows her around. Raina seeks help from strangers and gets custody of her sister.

















SIN CITY SEDUCTION
Zuri Day

Ms. Day gives new meaning to opposites attract in
SIN CITY SEDUCTION. Damaris leads a sheltered life inside the Church of Laymen. Noah’s family builds casinos hotels all over the country; something Damaris regards as being sinful. But armed with their love, they face the challenge and come out on the other side together.
















BLAME IT ON THE BILLIONAIRE
Naima Simone

Nadia and Grayson come from different walks of life. Both were badly hurt in the past by people who claim to love them. Ms. Simone captures the romantic in you and takes you on a journey of self-discovery for two people who come to realize that they are still worthy of being loved.
