Moving on GETTING UP AND GETTING ON is the continuing story of Betty Jean Carlson. She has come out of a bad relationship with Ezekiel and moved from the South to the West Coast. Her friend Sheila accompanied her and is forever after her to take off the bathrobe, get off the couch, go out and start living again. Sheila finally succeeds and the two of them meet a very handsome man who has eyes for Betty Jean. Sheila is just a bit jealous, but soon finds a man of her own. Betty Jean is still having difficulty washing Ezekiel completely away. He haunts her dreams as well as her waking hours and is causing havoc with her new relationship. This is a love story that stands alone even though it is a sequel. Betty Jean is developed enough in this book so it is easy to understand her hang up with Ezekiel as well as her need for Byron, the new man in her life, even if I did find myself wanting to shout at her to get over it and get on with her life. It is a good study in how to get rid of the baggage we sometimes carry without even realizing it. The story has enough twists and turns, hints and suggestions to increase the tension level. It is well worth reading. 'Alice Holman of RAWSISTAZ.com

Betty Jean Carlson is a woman tired of her life...her love life in particular. She's convinced that no love is perfect and is willing to suffer and sacrifice for hers, confident a wedding ring is worth it all. A painful discovery forces her to look within and ask herself some tough questions. Is her little piece of happiness enough? How much longer can she pretend like it is? Does she even want to? Ezekiel Johnson has been playing the game for so long he has no idea how to stop. Even when he's faced with losing all that he holds dear, he can't find the way to truth and honesty. Carla Jeffries regularly denies herself those two words as well. If she didn't she'd have to figure out what it is she really feels for her ex. A task she'd rather not perform. She's content to bury her feelings and go on with her life, never offering the forgiveness he so desperately craves. The story is the journey of one woman, but all of the characters will take a ride to self discovery before it ends. The first title in a dual series launch.
