Hearts on a String-Kris Radish

Hearts on a String
Kris Radish
Bantam, May 25 2010, $15.00
ISBN: 9780553384758

The extreme weather conditions running across much of the country shuts down the Tampa International Airport. Five women waiting for flights meet and agree to share a luxury suite at a nearby hotel on the beach. Tense Nan arranges the stay. Joining her are Vegas lounge act Patti, house-mom of three teens Margo, reticent Buckeye hair stylist Holly and sex oozing Cathy.

Each shares their personal tale of triumphs and much more defeats. However, the encounter rejuvenates each of the females; as they make more than just make due of a bad situation; instead being grounded has helped them become grounded.

Each one of the fearsome fab five females has a distinct personality that in turn makes their sisterhood bonding that much stronger. However, instead of only focusing on the quintet’s personal life sagas; subplots also involve psychics and secret agents that detract from the group. Still fans of Krish Radish will enjoy being grounded by weather in Tampa with the Hearts on a String quintet.
