Secret Betrayals by Harriet Wilson is a novel of three friends: Jasmine, Toya and Chante. The book puts you in mind of that old TLC song, "What About Your Friends." "Sometimes you have to choose and then you'll see...If your friends is true, they'll be there with you through the thick and thin."

Jasmine Reeves seems to have it all. She has a man that truly loves her, she's educated, and she has a great job. Unfortunately, she has commited the ultimate betrayal in friendship: she is sleeping with her friend's husband. She knows she is wrong, but she has fallen for him and refuses to let him go...no matter who she hurts in the long run.

Toya Johnson is single and uses what the good Lord blessed her with: a banging body...and she will use it to get anything she wants. Toya is also very outspoken and will tell you what she feels, no holds barred. She finally meets someone that can tame her wild ways, but her past will eventually catch up to her, threatening her chance at happiness.

Chante Summers is married to a successful businessman that is able to provide her with the finest things. Sadly, this is not enough for her. Chante is not satisfied with her mundane routine and her husband does not excite her sexually anymore. So she decides to take matters into her own hands and begins having an affair. Sadly, the person she is having the affair with is making a fool out of her.

Secret Betrayals by Harriet Wilson is a fast-paced read and full of drama. It will have you laughing out loud and constantly shaking your head over the antics and scandalous behavior of these women. Secret Betrayals could have easily been a five star read. My suggestion for Ms. Wilson would be a little fine tuning by getting a better editor and taking the time to make clear the time frame that lapsed in between each memorable moment. Other than that, Secret Betrayals was a very good debut. I look forward to reading more by this author.

Leona,

I read the book also a while ago under a different editor and that editor did a horrible job as well.

I spoke with Ms. Wilson and she mentioned that 3 editors later she believes she finally got it. I might've given this book a 4 if the editing was improved.
