    In God Don't Play, trouble comes a woman's way just when she thinks she's finally got it all figured out. Annette Goode couldn't be happier with where she is in life. She has a good job, a comfortable home, and a wonderful husband and daughter. But tough times lie ahead. Out of the blue, Annette begins receiving anonymous hate mail and threatening phone calls. It seems her life isn't as settled as she thought, and demons from her past surface in unexpected ways.

    I enjoyed this book, although I knew the outcome at the beginning. The redeeming factor in a situation like this is the unfolding of the story, and there I think the author did a good job of getting to the obvious. It was a bit drawn out and repetative, but a good book nonetheless. The narrator was annoying, too may "MOUTH" sounds going on, but tolerable.

    The beloved #1 Essence best-selling authors of Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made now deliver a novel in which you'll meet their most unforgettable characters yet. Carmen, Jewel, and Regina could not be more different. When they meet as freshmen at Columbia University, they're pretty confident that a friendship among them isn't in the cards.

    Overall

    I have listened to and read many books by African American writers, but I think that this is one of my favorites. I laughed, cried, and enjoyed the triumphs of these three ladies. Having been one of 3 sisters in my family, (all close in age), I was able to easily identify with the relationship between these women. GREAT LISTER, I highly recommend this book.

    Great story, nice delivery. I really enjoyed the story line, it captured my attention from the start, and held it until the last syllable.

    I knew the ending after listening to about a third of the book. I thought the characters were weak, as was the plot. But I kept listening because I just knew there had to be more, but there wasn't.
