Sin Of A Woman by Kimberla Lawson Roby (A Curtis Black Novel book 14)

SIN OF A WOMANSin is sin.  No sin is greater or less than any other one.  How should you proceed when a person feel like they can sin but throw your sins back in your face?  Do you continue to deal with them or do you separate yourself from the situation?

Raven Black is now divorced from Dillon Black, son of the infamous Curtis Black and she has started her own church.  She was doing good with Dillon but she is doing much better on her own.  The thing that Raven would like to achieve is a greater success than Dillon ever had but what will it take to achieve those goals?  Who or what would try to get in her way to stop Raven from being the success that she sees in her future or will she obtain it by any means necessary?  Does Raven have what it takes or does she even know what it takes to be considered a success?

Sin Of A Woman is part of the Curtis Black series but he only plays a very small part in this novel.  This book is about the women that came in contact with him and/or the Black family and how life is for them.  We have characters if you are caught up with the series you will recognize so you will understand.  Roby has written a story that will keep us in the loop with the Black family without missing a beat.  Once again, I applaud Roby for writing a story that is relatable to her fans and in general an all around great story to participate in.

Sin Of A Woman is available for purchase everywhere your favorite books are sold in various formats: Hardback, Paperback, Kindle, Nook and Audible.

The Pastor’s Husband by Tiffany L. Warren

THE PASTOR'S HUSBANDNowadays everyone is looking for something to believe in whether it is spiritual or something tangible just as long as it is something to make everything alright.  What happens when that something that you are putting all your trust and faith in isn’t the real thing?  Do you continue to believe or do you rebel against everything?

Nye Hempstead and her husband Gregory have a very successful church.  Nye has a gift from God where she can see what he wants her to reveal to others, some may call her a prophet.  Gregory is her co-pastor and he is great in his own right but Nye’s gift has helped many people in her church.  When that gift fails to give some the desired result, how will that play out for her followers?  Will they continue to follow Nye?  Will this affect the church?  Will this affect her ministry that she and her husband had made plans for?  Is this something that she can bounce back from or will she and her church suffer?

The Pastor’s Husband is a book about standing by your spouse through the good and the bad.  How we deal with people when we know that they are true and genuine until we discover that they aren’t.  Warren writes this novel so that you know and understand everyone’s viewpoint and feel like you are watching this on the screen.  The characters compliment each other and the story is smooth flowing.  I enjoyed reading this novel and I look forward to reading more from this author.

The Pastor’s Husband is available in various markets including Kindle, paperback, hardback, audible and Nook.

The Ultimate Betrayal by Kimberla Lawson Roby (book 12 Curtis Black series)

The Ultimate BetrayalWhen you betray someones trust you are walking a line that you may never regain.  If you are granted that luxury of being trusted once again you should do everything in your power to stay in that person good graces.  But we all know that there are people out there who will take advantage of the grace that they have been given and mess up again and again until there is no more trust left.  How do you break this cycle and get people to trust you or will you ever be able to be trusted by anyone again?

Alicia Black has had some bad days and she have had some better days that is for sure, but life seems to be getting better since her and her ex-husband Phillip Sullivan are getting re-married.  Alicia has been praying for this since realizing her mistake and she vows that she will do the right thing this time.  Alicia is excited about the opportunity to get a second chance to build a life with Phillip and she can’t wait to be his wife but he is making her wait for the perks of being is wife.  That simple task she knows is the right thing to do but it makes her vulnerable to suggestion from sources that are not in her best interest.  As if on que, Alicia’s past comes back to haunt her and as much as she tries it is a struggle of good and evil.  What is Alicia to do and how will Alicia cope with this outside pressure?

The Ultimate Betrayal is book number 12 in the Curtis Black series.  While it is more focused on Curtis daughter Alicia, he does make appearances in the book.  The dialogue between family members and friends in this book make it seem more like real life than reading a book and because there are so many books in this series you know everyone involved so you are absolutely talking to the characters while you are reading.  It is a very easy read because you are familiar with the characters but it is in no way predictable.  Roby keeps you on your toes with this family and their situations and circumstances and that is what keeps this series going.  There is NEVER a dull moment.  I always look forward to the next chapter and I hope that this series never ends.  The characters could have stand alone books and still hold your attention because they are just that strong.  Kudos to Roby on yet another great novel!

The Ultimate Betrayal is available for purchase anywhere you find you favorite reads.  It is available in hardback, paperback, audio cd, audible, Kindle and Nook editions.

The Prodigal Son by Kimberla Lawson Roby (Rev. Curtis Black series book 11)

The Prodigal SonThe word prodigal according to Merriam Webster dictionary means ~ carelessly and foolishly spending money, time etc.  But in this case it is the reverse of the biblical verse Luke 15:11-32 The parable of the lost son.  What do you do when you are oldest son but not the preferred child?  Do you still try to win your father’s affection or do you just stand on the sideline and watch the show?

Matthew Black and his wife Raquel are living LAC ~ life after Charlotte ~ with all the drama and trouble that she caused them with the kidnapping of their son MJ.  Life has not been easy and trying to get back on track has been really stressing on Matthew but he loves Raquel and he is willing to try anything.  When things start going sideways in his marriage once again they are really on a path that Matthew is not sure if he is willing to try to bring it back from. While he loves his wife, but is his love going to be enough this time?

Dillon Whitfield is so glad to be around Curtis Black, that is all he ever wanted.  He is so amazed at everything with Curtis but what he isn’t amazed with is the Black children.  He understands that Curtis kids have the right to be around, he doesn’t want them around while he is around.  They have had him all of their lives now it is his turn, he has missed out on 30 years and he won’t miss out on one more day!

The Prodigal Son is not what you expect from the Curtis Black series because you don’t have much from Curtis himself but you DO have just as much of the Black family drama.  You have the children going through their own situations with the parents in the background but they are always there providing that right amount of umph that you need to say “I know that Curtis/Charlotte has something to do with this!”  You have the emotional ups and downs and it is the easy flow of the characters that you just know that it is a book written by Roby and you are glad about it and you can’t wait on with it.  Congratulations on another great novel!

The Prodigal Son is available everywhere novels are sold and in Kindle, Nook and Audible book forms.

Best Friends Forever by Kimberla Lawson Roby

Best Friends foreverFriend is a word that many people throw around and don’t know the meaning of or understand what it truly means to be a friend.  Many hope that they have friends but there are so many that don’t know HOW to be a friend, many times it leads to broken hearts and relationships.  The question is:  Are you a good friend and do you have real friends that are good to you?

Celine and Keith Richardson have been married for 12 years.  They have the perfect marriage, a perfect child and a perfect life until it isn’t perfect anymore.  What can be done to make everything like it was before or will life ever be like it was before?  Who has the most work to do or is it a collaborative effort?

Best Friends Forever is a book about love and loyalty, friendship and trust.  The cast of characters are very fluid with each other, they compliment and work so well off of each other that the book is more like talking to a friend than reading a book.  Roby is known for her books that have so much excitement going on in them and it keeps your heart racing but Best Friends Forever is like a breath of fresh air because you are interacting with your friend and easing through this book.  That is not to say that anything is taken away from this book, not in the least!  It is a quick story that starts and finishes and you understand why everything happened like it did.

Best friends forever will be released nationally on January 5, 2016 everywhere your favorite books are sold.  It will be released in hardback, audiobook and e-book.

A Date With Destiny (Hallelujah Series) by Lutishia Lovely

A Date with destinyOften in life we think that we have everything figured out, what we want to do in life, how it will be done and how long it will take us to accomplish those goals.  But we have to remember that what we want for ourselves might not be in the divine plan for our lives.  Sometimes you have to just let it play out to see where your successes will land and also sometimes your failures.  These things are what makes us human and will get us on the right path in this thing we call life.

Pastor Nate Thicke and his beautiful wife Destiny Noble Thicke are loving their current life.  They had to learn the hard way that life has a crazy way of making you do what you are supposed to do, even when you think that you are going about it the right way already.  The age difference between Nate and Destiny was never in issue for them because love doesn’t recognize age but when you have outside forces testing your faith from every direction you need all the wisdom that you can get.

Ron Miller and his wife Janet are faithful members of Divine Grace, the church that Pastor Thicke is presiding over.  They have been with the church long before the Thicke family got there but as far as Deacon Miller is concerned, nothing is going to change just because a new leader of the flock has arrived.

A Date With Destiny is part of the Hallelujah Series.  It has the same characters as the Hallelujah Love Series but this seems to be starting a new chapter and that means the direction is shifting.  I enjoyed reading this book because it is an easy read.  Once you sit down and start reading it is hard to stop.  The characters are so well put together that reading it is almost like listening to an audio because you can hear everything that is spoken and their situations are so real you can feel it.  Once again, kudos to Lutishia Lovely for bringing us yet another #1 novel!

A Date With Destiny is due to release on December 10, 2015 so make sure that you pre-order and if you haven’t read the Hallelujah Love series, you might want to get a move on it!  You can pre-order from Amazon.com (Kindle edition only).

Who Me 4give? by Jo Ann Felton Carter

Who me 4giveWe have all had events in our lives that we deem as unforgivable, how we chose to deal with those events will determine much of our lives.  Sometimes we base our lives on the outcome of one event and other times we just let it go.  Is forgiveness for the person who wronged you or is forgiveness for ourselves?  What steps would you use to get to the point of forgiveness if that is the route that you choose?

Zinora and Zinye Rustin are twins in EVERY sense of the word.  From birth until age 17 they were one child in two bodies, then life happened and all of a sudden they are now two people!  What happens in the years to follow will determine how they react to others and their thought process.  Is there anything that could have been done differently while Zinora and Zinye were growing up to prevent where they are at this point or was this God’s plan all the time?  Who does forgiveness belong to?  Is there anything that can be done to re-establish this twin kinship or is it just over?  The decision belongs to whom?

Who Me 4give? is a book about forgiveness and who it belongs to.  It is a Christian fiction novel so there is scripture in there but is also has a story and a purpose.  This could be anyones’ story that is struggling with forgiveness.  We all have gone through it at one time or another but this book is explaining why one person decision impacts the lives of many.  I have always enjoyed read novels from Jo Ann Felton Carter and this one is no exception.  If you read this novel and don’t feel something moving in you from this story, you need to re-read it because you missed it! Congratulations Jo Ann on this novel, I look forward to reading more from you in the future.

Who Me 4give? is available and can be purchased through Amazon.com (Kindle and paperback), BN.com ( Nook and paperback) and Booksamillion.com( Paperback only).
