JoJo Smithson thinks she has the perfect life. Her husband Eddie has a successful career in real estate, and they have a beautiful house and two great kids. When Eddie announces that he is leaving, JoJo's world falls apart. All she wants to do is wallow in self pity, but after many failed attempts to collect money from Eddie, Jojo realizes she needs to get a job.

Charlon Milner, who is JoJo's best friend, is also successful when it comes to selling real estate. Charlon does her best to convince JoJo to give real estate a try, explaining that JoJo can set her own hours around her children's schedule. Over Eddie's objections, JoJo decides to take Charlon's advice and enrolls in a real estate course. When JoJo passes all of the necessary tests and becomes a licensed real estate broker, she begins working with Charlon and is soon on her way to her own successful career. As JoJo begins to rebuild her confidence, she realizes that she can have a fulfilling life without Eddie.

If you or anyone you know is interested in a pursuing a real estate career, then I would recommend reading Sex, Lies and Real Estate. Carrol Wolverton has done her research when it comes to the ups and downs of real estate sales. I wish that her plot had been a little stronger. There are some great characters in this novel, but they lack the necessary depth to sustain the story line.
