About book: On the surface, Lena Spencer appears to have it all. She and her wealthy husband Randall have two wonderful children, and they live a life of luxury. In reality, however, Lena finds that happiness is elusive. Randall is emotionally distant, her son has developed a drug habit, and her daughter is disgusted by her mother's "overbearing behavior." When Randall decides that he's had enough of marriage counseling, he offers his wife an ultimatum: "Be grateful for all I've done for you or leave." Lena, realizing that money can't solve her problems and that her husband is no longer the man she married, decides to choose the latter. Drawing strength from Tina Turner's life story, SEARCHING FOR TINA TURNER is Lena's struggle to find herself after 25 years of being a wife and mother. Jacqueline E. Luckett's first novel, "Searching For Tina Turner", is a beautiful surprise. Aside from the wealth, this is a story that every family can identify with. We all have problems and triumphs.I was not impressed at first. The characters made me frustrated and impatient. I wanted to grab Lena by the shoulders and shake her depression away. I wanted to slap Randall's tunnel-vision off his face. And those kids...their insolence, ignorance and disrespect had me grinding my teeth and clenching my fists. For a novel to illicit a response like that from me says a lot. But isn't that what a good read is supposed to do? To make us feel? "Searching For Tina Turner" is much more than a good read. It will make you sort through your life and hopefully your ending will be as perfect as Lena's.

My answer to Marla's Nora Roberts lapse. I'm getting started on the beach reading early.
