'Designed for Passion' by Francine Craft
Published Author Francine Craft delivers a new story which allows her characters to be more amorous and delve a little deeper into lustful fulfillment. Designed for Passion, (Kimani Press, March 2008, 0373860579, $5.99), Ms. Craft's twenty-first novel, is more than an entertaining read. It shares the sometimes emotional anguish of women who are separated by size and humility.
Melodye Carter suffered emotional anguish at the hands of her mom and her sister; she was too heavy and not pretty enough, yet her sister was always competing. Somehow Melodye survived growing up, she now is captivated by her business, a boutique for plus size women.
Having endured two years after the death of her husband, she is almost ready to live again. But new developments, in her husband's unsolved murder, create problems for Melodye. Her husband's associates thinks she is hiding money he owed them. Detective Jim Ryman, who has a short history with Melodye, is assigned to the case, and her sister, who takes no male prisoners, is back taunting Melodye! Her sister wants Jim, Jim wants Melodye, and Melodye, tired of competing with her sister, wants them both gone. But startling discoveries surrounding her husband's `life and death' just may shock Melodye into finally leveling the playing field.
Designed For Passion is an ardent story about plus-size women, jealous siblings, introspection, and personal redemption. Ms. Crafts delves into the psyche of women who see themselves through someone else's eyes. Hopefully readers will be rewarded with positive actions about women who feel when this ends, plus size women might want to take a bow!
