Publisher's Summary

Renny James thought she was falling in love with her boss. Then she met his wife. Renny was totally unprepared for the beauty and charisma of Vivian Rockmore. The electricity between the two women was undeniable, but too many obstacles stood between them. We are each the master of our own destiny, aren’t we? That was the mantra of Renny James as she fought her way out of poverty and rose to the ranks of the rich and glamorous.

Clean sheets were Renny's criteria for success. A brilliant student, she knew a college education would get her out of the horrible poverty in which she lived. Nothing would stop her from achieving her goals. Determined to distance herself from the filth and hopelessness that marked her youth, Renny worked hard and wasted no time on things like family or friends.

Raised by a mother whose only thought was about where she would find her next boyfriend, Renny learned to fend for herself. She knew education and hard work were her tickets to a better life. Brad and Vivian Rockmore introduced her to the world of beautiful people, cruise ships, and private jets. At 28, Renny had realized all her goals. She had no idea her ambition would land her in jail for murdering the only person she had ever loved. 

Erin Wade takes the listener on a fast-paced ride in her first lesbian murder mystery/romance with a twist. If you like a good suspense-filled novel, you will love The Destiny Factor.

A pleasant experience.

This was the first Erin Wade book I've either read or listened to, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. For the first forty-five minutes I couldn't figure out what was going on. I wasn't enjoying the narrator's voice for Renny, she just seemed so childish to me. I didn't like the pacing through the beginning, either; I felt like I'd missed something because of how abrupt some of the time-jumps were while setting up Renny's background.

But then I felt like the book really hit it's stride, and I was completely hooked. I realized why Renny came across the way she did - for all of the horrible things she'd fought through in her life, she truly was a child in some ways because she lost out on some important experiences and feelings while she was younger. I can completely relate to that, and when I finally recognized what was going on it changed my perception of the book entirely. The sometimes-abrupt jumps were understandable, as well, because there was some necessary information that really showed who Renny James is as a person.

The narration was enjoyable, and for the most part the characters were easily distinguishable from each other. During certain scenes with two women or two men it could get a little confusing as to which one was speaking, but overall it was very good work.

I can't say that the ending took me completely by surprise; I'd guessed most of what was coming well before the conclusion. There were certainly surprises, though, and I was pleased that I didn't catch on to everything right away.

In the end I'm very glad I listened to this book. I would recommend it to others, and I will certainly be looking at more of Erin Wade's work in the future, both in print and on audio.
