5.0 out of 5 stars You will love this book 22 Sep 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brenda Jackson is one of my all time favourite writers. I think that most women can relate to this book and the characters. I don't want to give to much away but like most of Brenda Jackson's books it definitely has a twist. The book reminds me of a modern Waiting to Exhale love really gives me hope.

4.0 out of 5 stars My Sisters� Keeper 24 Oct 2003
By Dawn R Reeves - Published on
Simply put The Savvy Sistahs by Brenda Jackson is a girlfriend-to-girlfriend novel with a twist. These girlfriends, Amber, Brandy and Carla, are not lifelong friends that met during childhood and remained friends, they met at a support group for business women in Orlando, Florida and from that forged their own triple bond of friendship.
Each came into the group with their own set of baggage but one thing remains constant, they each have no time or patience for relationships with the opposite sex. Amber is a survivor of an abusive marriage and the owner of Amber's Books and Gifts. Through a divorce settlement, Brandy becomes the owner of the St. Laurent Hotel. Brandy was highlighted in Jackson's novel Family Reunion and someone is back stalking her with ties to that novel. Carla, a single mother, is named CEO of Osborne Computer Network after her father dies and finds her company the object of a hostile takeover.
The men highlighted in this story are endearing as well and also carry some of the same baggage when it comes to relationships with the opposite sex. Cord Jeffries is an accountant and a very bitter man who must learn to let go of the past and judge people as individuals. Grey Masters is a private investigator and ex-FBI agent who has kept a haunting secret from his family about his failed marriage and Jesse Devereau is a west coast corporate raider with no shame to his manipulations and takeovers of successful companies. What role do these men play in the lives of the savvy sistahs?
In true Brenda Jackson fashion, The Savvy Sistahs is a novel about family and the ties that bind, finding love in the most unexpected places and last but certainly not least, new friendships that span the test of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liked It!! 1 Nov 2003
By thesavvybamalady - Published on
I really enjoyed the book! You need some sisters in your corner like Carla,Amber and Brandy. One thing about them is that they took the time out for each other and didn't dog the other when they went celibate.It was moreso a team effort. So I enjoyed it and recommend it!! Get one for your favorite girl!

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable contemporary romance 7 Nov 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
In Orlando the three thirtyish ladies met one year ago at a meeting of the Savvy Sistahs Who Mean Business. They became friends and regularly meet to share their business successes. They also share failure when it comes to men.
Pregnant Amber Stuart caught her husband in bed with another woman and went crazy leading to a miscarriage and a divorce. She now owns Amber's Books & Gifts. Just before her wedding Brandy Bennett found a video of her future spouse in bed with her best friend. Using the video as a weapon she gained an immediate divorce with her settlement consisting of the St. Laurent Hotel. Carla Osborne runs Osborne Computer Network while raising her two year old by herself.
Cord Jeffrey chokes on a cookie in Amber's store, sending her in a panic even after he recovers. Brandy hires former FBI Agent Grey Masters when someone begins to stalk her. Carla fights off a hostile takeover of her business led by Jesse Deveraux, the only man she ever loved literally and emotionally. The three relationship failures have found love, but will any one of them realize what they have if they go for it?
Brenda Jackson displays she is a savvy sistah when it comes to successfully providing an enjoyable contemporary romance starring three delightful single women. THE SAVVY SISTAHS contains three prime intermingling story lines as each of the female trio stars in their own respective tale, but overlap just enough so that the audience feels like participants in a cleverly designed plot. Ms. Jackson provides a wonderful novel that gifts fans of strong female protagonists with an integrated charming triad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book 9 Dec 2003
By A Customer - Published on
I really enjoyed this book. The only problem I had with it is that Brandy's story overshadowed the stories of Carla and Amber. Every other page was about Brandy and Grey, and as a result, their relationship was able to develop more fully than the other two ladies' relationships with their men. I especially enjoyed Amber's story and if the author had elaborated on it a bit more, I would have appreciated it. Overall, it was a good book that is worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book About Real People 8 Dec 2003
By Sanas E. Murray - Published on
I really enjoyed reading this book. The women in the story had real issues. They weren't complaining about stupid stuff. They were women willing to move on and start over. That not only took courage, it also took time. But in the end, all the heartbreak and drama they experienced was worth it. An excellent read.
