Jadyn has made a life for herself with her boyfriend, Taji, and has a promising career as a dancer...just as soon as she nails her next audition. However, she has never fully recovered from the emotional and physical pain she suffered at the hands of her mother and stepfather as a young girl. After finding out that Taji, the supposed love of her life, has been lying to his family about her, and may have even ruined her chances at getting a lead role in STOMP, Jadyn decides to make a drastic change in her life. She attempts to locate her biological father, whom she has never had a real relationship with. Her search takes her to Florida where she stays with her great-uncle and cousin. While following up on seemingly dead ends in her search for her father, Jadyn discovers that sometimes things are not quite what they seem when she becomes involved in a heated love affair with a man named Julian, who may just be the death of her.

Praise for Not Quite What It Seems

Praise for Not Quite What It Seems:

"Walker captures your attention from the start with the multiple levels of dysfunction that exist in the protagonist's life. She's a tremendous talent and has a great ability to write strong, realistic personalities and different voices." --Romantic Times BOOKreviews

"Walker deftly depicts Jadyn's family reunions with a gentle touch." --Publisher's Weekly

“If you like to read Eric Jerome Dickey, Donna Hill and J.D. Mason, you'll definitely want to check out Mari Walker!” -- Carleen Brice, author of Children of the Waters

 

“[Mari] has the rare ability to make the simple complex by challenging the reader to evaluate their life against her story. The read was the equivalent of what I would describe as VSOP brand liquor...top shelf stuff.” Royale Watkins, comedian, Mixtape Comedy Gotham, NY

 

"Mari Walker knows how to capture and hold captive her readers from the first line to the last.  It's authors like Ms. Walker, with her distinctive writing style and voice, that remind us just how priceless a well told story is."--Joylynn M. Jossel, Essence Magazine Bestselling Author
