Publisher's Summary

The congregation at the Freedom Temple Church of God in Christ doesn't know what to think when their pastor, Bishop Lance Howell, returns from a vacation in Jamaica with a wife in tow. As if Lady Elect Arykah Miles' false eyelashes, scarlet red fingernails, and fishnet stockings aren't flashy enough, the blond wigs and sky-high stilettos she wears send Mother Gussie Hughes and Mother Pansie Bowak into panic mode. The mothers of the church don't take too kindly to the fact that Pastor Howell chose to marry outside of the congregation. One look at Lady Arykah and the mothers know that she isn't likely to be controlled. Arykah proves that to be true when she refuses to tone down her attire. Determined to oust Lady Elect Arykah Miles, the mothers put a plan in motion to show Arykah how much she isn't liked or wanted. An all-out war ensues, and the church mothers are willing to try some pretty devious antics to get rid of Arykah. What they don't know is that Arykah is from the streets, and she fought hard to get to where she is. She's ready to prove to the whole congregation that, like it or not, she's here to stay.

    Story
    "Not at all what I expected"

    I truly enjoyed this book and I loved the way that Lady Erica and the Bishop worked together as a team. This book opened my eyes to how conniving some church people can be and the situations that arose are realistic. I thought that this book would be too churchy but it was not at all like I expected. I have read Lutisha Lovely books and they didn't keep me as captivated and wanting to read on like this book did. Good book and the characters fit perfectly.

    Story
    "I absolutely loved this book!"
    If you could sum up Lady Elect in three words, what would they be?

    So original, exciting, and thought provoking.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I liked most was the degree of love that the bishop had for his wife and the level of friendship between Arykah and her best friend.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when the bishop's ex girlfriend sat in the first lady's seat.


    If you could rename Lady Elect, what would you call it?

    I can't think of anything better than "Lady Elect".


    Any additional comments?

    This story was well written. There were no holes, the writer followed through with every point. I was so caught up in the story, it was like I was watching a movie.

    Story
    "Slow start but builds great momentum - Thumbs up!"

    Favorite Character: Lady Arykah
    Why: She is a plus sized diva and she looks good, dresses well, confident, independent but knows she wants and will do anything to keep her mind, but not taking any mess.

    What held my interest: I liked the story line because of the couple's (pastor & 1st Lady) united front. Many aspects were thrown at them to tear them up, but the communication and transparency kept them tight or did it???

    The church busy bodies are in rare form.

    Talented author, great read - good change from the urban novels. Looking forward to part II.
