Like fine wine, Gwynne Forster's storytelling skills get better over time. Whatever It Takes is a testament to that. Drama, family struggles, passion and true-to-life characters. --Donna Hill

Lacette Graham's twin sister, Kellie, has been competing with her since they shared a crib. And in thirty-three years, nothing has changed--except success, money, and men have come into play. But when the girls' parents separate, and their grandmother dies, Kellie's selfish manipulating reaches new heights. . .

With her mother in the throes of a mid-life crisis, her father and greatest ally out of the house, and her sister out to steal her inheritance, Lacette is truly on her own. Then she meets talented, attractive Douglas Rawlins. There's just one problem: he avoids her like poison. It seems Kellie has embarked on a spree of seduction and greed so clever, even Lacette doesn't suspect she's behind Douglas's odd behavior. But when tragedy strikes, will Kellie withhold the most important gift of all?

"Wise and wonderful as it points out, once again, the importance of honesty and appreciating what you have while you have it." --Publishers Weekly on A Different Kind of Blues

About the Author:

Gwynne Forster was an award-winning, national bestselling author. She was also a demographer and former senior United Nations Officer, in which capacities she traveled the world.

From Booklist:

The twins, Lacette and Kellie, grew up in the Christian home of Reverend Marshall and Mrs. Cynthia Graham. At 33, the girls are as identical in looks as their personalities are opposite. Lacette learned at an early age to give into Kellie's manipulation. Kellie's covetous and competitive nature seeks out Lacette's things, as well as her boyfriends. Cynthia has contributed to Kellie's behavior by never holding her accountable for her behavior. Marshall does not set Kellie straight either, but he does protect Lacette from Kellie's outbursts. With no explanation, Cynthia and Marshall separate, and he moves out of the parsonage. After the maternal grandmother's will is read, Kellie decides that she wants the broach that was left to Lacette. With Marshall staying at a hotel, the Graham women begin to live distant and separate lives--Cynthia is floating through a midlife crisis, Lacette has purchased her own house and started a business, and Kellie is on the warpath to get that broach. Everyone learns--at a price--that doing whatever it takes has consequences. Lillian Lewis
