Whole in One / Pride and Pumpernickel / The Degree / WifeStacy's Wedding
An omnibus of novels by Aisha Ford
From the land of the Gateway Arch to the City of Fountains, stirring romances occur in the bookend cities of Missouri. On the sophisticated eastern side of the state, two St. Louis career women aren't convinced that love will work for them: Dana, a tried and true bakery employee, has her doubts about a new coworker who has all kinds of innovative ideas...including those on romance. Evette, a golf teacher at her father's pro shop, just wants to give a young sportswriter tips on the game...but will she end up learning her own lessons in love? Across I-70 on the banks of the Missouri, Kansas City offers a wealth of western warmth - much needed by two women disillusioned by love: Stacy, a professional wedding planner, has seen it all - but doesn't want even a glimpse of romance in her own life. Maddy, in love with Jordan since her elementary school days, appears on the verge of winning her cherished man...but has she changed too much to be satisfied with Jordan now? Love is showing itself in the Show Me State. But when it appears, will these four young, professional, African-American women have the faith to believe in the real thing?
