"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
"Tender, clever and endearing, this story of love and loss will have you alternating between laughter and tears. Leslie's mix of break-it-down humor and heartbreaking truth makes this book playful and deep in all the right places." --Tembi Locke, author of From Scratch
“Black Widow” is a beautiful love story that also happens to be a grief story. Leslie Gray Streeter tells the whole tale—falling in love, marriage, adopting, parenthood, death, moving on—with her captivating wit. Only she could make Black Widow so deeply moving, painfully funny, altogether unforgettable.” --Rob Sheffield, author of Love is a Mix Tape
“Grief is a heavy darkness with spots of unexpected, unpredictable light. Leslie’s book is a light for those still stuck in the dark--a sad, funny, personal story filled with universal truths about life and love and loss.” --Nora McInerny, author of No Happy Endings
"This is a great read for anyone who's suffered loss of a loved one. I'd say it's chicken soup for any soul in grief. Anyone who reads this will undoubtably feel consoled."
--Aphrodite Jones, author of Cruel Sacrifice
"Walking in Leslie's shoes through this book made me humbled and filled with courage. It made me realize how much I love my family and that LOVE conquers all. I’m sorry to see the book end. I can’t recommend it enough." --actor Johnathon Schaech
