It keep you in suspense

When Monique found out she really wasn't pregnant
First Lady from the Grave
True book, it's amazing how most of this stuff sounds like things happening. Everybody wants the power and title and to go to such measure was too much. I laughed so hard, this book keep me hooked!
I really liked them all
Thanks for the reading can't wait to read the rest of the line
For this to be the third book in a series the stories other than a few previous names used again there was no connection. The first part of the book moved so slow it hurt to listen.
Yes I enjoyed some of his books this one was very disappointing.T

Yes, I enjoyed how the dead first lady put things into motion with the letters.
Monique, I was pulling for her and hoped that she was the one.
I enjoyed then all.
Shock and awe, when Lisa May and Loretta hemmed up Marlene at the Bishop's house. Marlene and the dog, I felt so bad for her at that point in her life.
Overall, the book was amazing, and my pick was thee pick, go Monique!

I recently finished this audiobook. The performances where much better than the story, which left much to be desired. Whoever read the part of the first lady was fantastic.
Let me begin with saying I love Carl Weber and respect him as a/an author. That being said I was disappointed with this novel. The idea of the plot put me in mind of the t.v. show "The Bachelor" The disappointment came because there were too many "loose ends" that weren't tied up, and a lot cliche' concepts. Perhaps I missed it, but what ever happened between Savanna and her father? Why didn't anything happen to Lisa Mae and Loretta for what they did to Marlene? Why didn't Deacon Black be held accountable for what he tried to do to Monique? It was almost as if he became tired of writing and was ready to wrap it up. The story had potential to be so much more than what it was. I did however laugh my a** off about Lisa Mae. She was out of control in so many ways. This has not turned me off so to speak from the rest of his writings, but I was disappointed.
This is church drama to the max. It it a shame to think, I could really see some mess like this occurring after the death of a first lady. The letters written by the first lady were a little far fetched. But, the chase for the available clergyman, I could see some desperate women behaving in such a manner as illustrated in this book. The book kept my attention and and eagerness to find out who would eventually become the pastor's wife. If you are offended with cursing, you may want to skip this one. I felt the use of such language did not enhance the storyline. This was my first book from Carl Weber, I would be interested in a few more from him after listening to this one.
I really liked this book. It was quick paced and I enjoyed the story from the different points of view. I will say that the one-dimensional female characters bothered me. They all seemed to be single-minded schemers except for one; I would have liked to see the character of Savannah developed more-- I felt like the author wanted to tell more of her story, but stopped short. In all, though, the book was an enjoyable listen. I'd like to see more Carl Weber books on audible.
