Most men who jilt their lovers at the alter don't leave them a safe deposit box brimming with cash and a rare red diamond, but Patricia Conley's fiance' did. Trying to find out why her man did her wrong and who did him in, this woman isn't waiting to exhale -- she's ready to fight back.

Trying to find out why her man did her wrong and who did him in, this woman isn't waiting to exhale--she's ready to fight back.

Patricia Conley considers herself to be a brother's worst nightmare. A lifetime of hurt has made her fierce. A lifetime of victories has made her proud. And a whole lot of hope keeps her going. Now Patricia's most daring stab at happiness has come up bad: The man she was supposed to marry has stood her up. Last seen holding hands with another woman, Kenneth Lawson has vanished.

Still reeling from Kenneth's disappearance, Patricia is stunned by a series of macabre discoveries. Her car is found bathed in blood. A woman is found dead. And another too-good-to-be-true brother is offering his services. Suddenly the tough-talking Atlanta journalist doesn't know who to trust. Because in a collision of murder, religion, love, and race, Patricia has learned some extraordinary secrets--some about Kenneth Lawson, a few about herself, and one that the whole world needs to know.

Here's what some booksellers had to say about What a Woman's Gotta Do

"Through the prism of African culture, Evelyn Coleman has woven a fantastic story blending mythical tradition with new realities and science.... We have our first suspense thriller and it is a sure bestseller."
-- Fanta Mutota, African Spectrum Bookstore, Atlanta Georgia

"An outstanding debut thriller. Suspenseful, exciting, mystical -- a truly original story. But more than that, a female protagonist that the reader will truly care for and enjoy watching grow. I look forward to more books by Evelyn Coleman.
-- Mike Sussman, Manager, Chapter 11 bookstore, Alpharetta, Georgia

"I am very excited about this new thriller. I love the psychological exploration of the characters and the way Coleman incorporates ancient Eastern arts into the story. Patricia Conley is not your typical black female protagonist. A great book!
-- Genita Johnson, SISTAH's, Roxbury, Mass.

"Evelyn Coleman brings together a rare combination of feminism and martial arts to get a new spark in the mystery field. I really enjoyed it."
-- Paige Rose, Mystery Loves Company, Baltimore, Maryland
