A successful female DJ refuses to let a few romantic catastrophes keep her down in award-winning author April Sinclair's dazzlingly soulful novel that was hailed as "a Bridget Jones's Diary for black women" by the New York Times Book Review
Daphne "Dee Dee" Dupree has arrived at age 41 with a career she loves, but a romantic life she doesn't. Insecure about her weight and protective of her often-broken heart, Dee Dee is an expert at hiding her inward struggles from the thousands of Chicago residents who hear her on the radio every night. A successful, charismatic DJ for the local blues station, Dee Dee is still looking for the type of love she's missed since her divorce. After a traumatic event at work, Dee Dee meets Skylar, a union mediator who could be just what she's looking for—if only there weren't so many obstacles in their way.

Meanwhile, Dee Dee's coworker Jade is nearing her own divorce; her best friend, Sharon, has come out of the closet; and Sharon's teenage daughter is dangerously close to a breakdown. As Dee Dee works to ease the problems of her friends, she finally faces her own troubles—both old and new—in this uplifting, thought-provoking novel.
