Like fine wine, Gwynne Forster's storytelling skills get better over time. Whatever It Takes is a testament to that. Drama, family struggles, passion and true-to-life characters. --Donna Hill
Lacette Graham's twin sister, Kellie, has been competing with her since they shared a crib. And in thirty-three years, nothing has changed--except success, money, and men have come into play. But when the girls' parents separate, and their grandmother dies, Kellie's selfish manipulating reaches new heights. . .
With her mother in the throes of a mid-life crisis, her father and greatest ally out of the house, and her sister out to steal her inheritance, Lacette is truly on her own. Then she meets talented, attractive Douglas Rawlins. There's just one problem: he avoids her like poison. It seems Kellie has embarked on a spree of seduction and greed so clever, even Lacette doesn't suspect she's behind Douglas's odd behavior. But when tragedy strikes, will Kellie withhold the most important gift of all?
"Wise and wonderful as it points out, once again, the importance of honesty and appreciating what you have while you have it." --Publishers Weekly on A Different Kind of Blues
