"The Business of Love" was a good book. Maya Woodson was involved in her deceased father's business of running a hotel chain along with her father's partner, Jerome Newman. Jerome was not only a partner, but Maya considered Jerome as family, her mentor, whom she thought of as her second father.
Trajan Matthews is hired to help Maya and Jerome publicize the Pharaoh Hotel Corporation chain in other cities. Maya and Trajan get off to a bad start, each getting the wrong impression of the other. However, their feelings gradually change from dislike to love for each other while working in the business together.
Angela Winters has combined suspense with romance in the form of what is originally thought to be one murder, but turns out to be several murders.
Maya's life is changed dramatically not only with meeting and working with Trajan, but with the murder of an elderly friend, Elaine, who lived in the hotel. Maya is not satisfied with the way the case is going, so she becomes involved in finding the murderer. Maya's searching takes her onto a path that is unbelievable to Maya and when the truth is displayed to Maya, she still has trouble accepting it.
Trajan's friend he grew up with in the neighborhood, George, is now a detective and is working on Elaine's case. George and Trajan renew their relationship. Tre (Trajan) at first cannot think of anything except business and keeping the image he has managed to make for himself since escaping his original life of poverty. However, when he becomes involved with Maya, he realizes that there is more to life than money. He has developed feelings of love, support, and protection for Maya.
Maya and Tre's relationship is steamy, but eventually, they both have to face their true feelings for each other.
"The Business of Love" is a good book and the suspense will keep the reader turning the pages to see how the story eventually end. Also, the relationship between Maya and Tre will keep the reader enthralled.
