Honorary president of the “Superwoman” club, this feisty single mom defines the

risen above a tumultuous childhood, a lonely and painful adulthood to raise a
son on her own while she attends grad school and works full time. From the
outside looking in, it appears as if she has it all together . . . What
could this strong black woman possibly need? Despite all outward
appearances, which McKenzie meticulously crafts, she yearns for a love she can
believe in and trust.

wins McKenzie’s heart over during lengthy discussions about mushy classic
R&B lyrics and intimate moments doing the cha-cha. They laugh, open
up, become close and fall in love.

trust in love, trust in a man, and trust in herself. But will
she be able to accept his support, understanding, and love and allow him to be
for her . . . A Soft Place to Fall.
