All About Eva
The pampered girlfriend of a wealthy businessman, Eva Cantrell has been living the high life, so accustomed to exotic vacations and shopping sprees that she can scarcely remember what it's like to struggle or want for anything. But then, her sugar daddy is busted for shady business practices and sent to do a long stint in prison. With the gravy train permanently derailed, Eva is forced to reinvent herself and embarks on a soul-searching journey where she crosses paths with an eccentric array of characters and ultimately finds love where she least expects it.

"A hilarious riches-to-rags-and-redemption saga." --Publishers Weekly
When You've Had Everything, What's Next?
A wealthy boyfriend, designer clothes, exotic vacations, and a Central Park penthouse--these are a few of Eva Cantrell's favorite things. But when her boyfriend turns out to be an investment swindler and goes on the run, he leaves an unsuspecting Eva without a couture bag to her name.
With the gravy train permanently derailed, suddenly nobody is who Eva thought they were. Her socialite best friend has become her worst enemy, and her new attorney is an all-out hunk who makes it difficult to keep their relationship strictly professional. And with her return to her old south side Chicago neighborhood, Eva's also got her hands full dealing with her always out-there family of dreamers, divas, and straight-up scammers. Now, Eva has to face the past, get a life that's truly hers, and find out if the best things in life really are free. . . .
