The Other Side

Hickman (Deadly Satisfaction) weaves the stories of three independent women with modern relationship troubles, albeit with some extraordinary coincidences. Readers who enjoy strong female characters with supportive friendships will be delighted, if also surprised, by the abrupt cliff-hanger ending, ensuring there will be a sequel.

Deadly Satisfaction: A Dangerous Love Novel

Reprising the who-killed-Johnny story line grows a bit stale, but Hickman is spot on describing the emotional turmoil Donetta feels when she falls for a guy; the depiction of her relationship with Phillip is an important addition to romance novels.

Secret Indiscretions

Readers will enjoy the twist and turns in Hickman's tale, which has a definite soap opera vibe. We know there's a romantic train wreck ahead, but we can't turn away from the drama. Characters are flawed and we almost feel sorry for Johnny. Nah, check that. The man's a snake. Hickman's name should be well known by librarians. If not, this juicy tale is a great launching point.

Looking for Trouble

I found the large cast a bit difficult to hold together in my mind, and other readers may get lost between the alternating times and romances. Still with its strong theme of finding true love with the help of family and friends, Hickman's sweeping and slightly paranormal romance will attract fans of complicated soap operas.
