Brenda Jackson did an excellent job of introducing the first to characters of the series. It was well written; Brenda showed us how the chemistry between Opal and D'Marcus started off a slow pace but as each page turn you see it starts to build up. Adding the secondary characters like her sisters, cousins and everyone else who is connected to the family was definitely a bonus because it gives a glimpse of her sisters' personality and to sees what's coming next.
