Fort Worth, texas native and I love to READ!!!!
I read this book years ago, and listening to it now it was as interesting as ever! I am always looking forward to releases from the Curtis Black series! 💙
The story went on too long for apparent reason. Ir was never made clear why a well educated and gainfully employed woman would remain in a loveless relationship with a man who is openly unfaithful - especially when a handsome wealthy man awaits her.
In my opinion this book was soporific, an excellent choice if you want to fall asleep while listening. The story is fraught with trite, trivial colloquialisms and stale cliches, so very predictable and banal. I felt like I was abusing myself by listening to this story. Usually I'll listen and relisten to chapters if the novel holds my interest. CTFS was a lumbering snooze I had to force myself to finish.
I probably wouldn't listen to it again. This doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it the first round, because I did. I just wouldn't listen again.
One of the most enjoyable moments was when the deacon confronted the pastor and his mistress at church. It made me cringe, but it was pretty funny.
Can't wait to see what Tonya & Alicia is up to as well. Overall satisfied with this author and how she tells s story. I wish they were longer ofcourse because I don't want to stop reading!
