Booklist Review
Stella Payne is a successful 42-year-old investment analyst and divorced mother of an 11-year-old son, Quincy. But Stella has begun to feel that her life needs some "groove." On the spur of the moment, she plans a trip to Jamaica to relax and escape from her routine. She meets a man, half her age, whose honesty and physical charm challenge her perceptions of what is acceptable and force her to rethink and re-prioritize her image of herself and her life. Once she returns from her vacation, she recognizes that her life has only been satisfying because it is what was expected from a woman her age. Stella accomplishes her mission of doing something totally out of character by taking her solo vacation and she succeeds at putting more than just a "groove" back into her life. The stream-of-consciousness narration that is utilized for most of this story is a bit awkward at times. McMillan's style here differs markedly from that of Waiting to Exhale, which brought her much "girlfriend" popularity; yet she just may connect with an untapped readership.
