“Black Widow is a very special one of a kind book, a wonderfully touching love story that will make you laugh and cry, sometimes on the same page. Even more outstanding is Leslie Gray Streeter’s voice. You won’t soon forget Black Widow.” –James Patterson

“I can only marvel at Leslie Streeter’s resilience,
humor and candor. Black Widow is a funny, heartwarming read about one of the worst things that can happen to a person. We should all be this grounded in our day-to-day lives.” –Laura Lippman
