Meet Daryl Graham, or as his neighbors call him . . .
THE MAN IN 3B
Daryl has just moved into a Jamaica, Queens, apartment building and his neighbors, both male and female alike, can't stop talking about him. From his down-to-earth personality to his extreme attractiveness to his undeniable swag, Daryl is the man every woman wants and every man wants to be. Daryl is quickly welcomed into the building and immediately becomes a part of each of the tenants' lives.
Connie, an overweight and unhappy wife, turns to Daryl for help losing weight, hoping to try and fix her crumbling marriage. But when Daryl starts making Connie feel beautiful again, she questions whether or not her marriage is worth saving. Benny, a spoiled teenager, looks up to Daryl as a role model. When an unexpected event occurs, Benny is left questioning everything he's ever known. Krystal, Daryl's first love, wants to make things work with her current boyfriend. Yet, having Daryl back in her life sends her happy home spiraling out of control. And, Daryl but not least, Avery, Connie's husband, doesn't care about anyone or anything when a financial opportunity comes his way-that is, until he notices how much time his wife is spending with their new neighbor.
Everything seems to be going well, until someone is murdered, and everyone becomes a prime suspect.

"After a church member commits suicide, secrets are exposed that could destroy the church and various relationships as Weber (Up to No Good) successfully explores the multiple megaproblems challenging this church family and scores again with a lively mix of church politics and bedroom follies."
"Weber's in top form with this fast-paced and oh-so-zany soap opera."
"Popular author Weber (The Preacher's Son, 2005; Up to No Good, 2009) fills his books with lifelike characters-flawed, confused, frustrated, and sometimes plus-sized. His latest is perfect for readers looking for an emotion-filled human drama, and Big Girls Do Cry will be a welcome addition to any library's African American fiction collection."
"As James, Darnel and Jamie switch narrative duties, betrayals and odd plot twists become the norm with at times shocking results...this trashy page-turner should give fans what they want."
"Weber keeps the pacing brisk and loads the narrative with enough surprise turns to keep readers guessing to the end."
"Major revelations and an eye-raising twist will make even seen-it-all fans gasp. And the drama doesn't end but plants the seeds for Weber's next, The First Lady."
