Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it...
I absolutely loved this story and the two divas pitting against each other. The ending was twistful and simply fun. Ten stars! And as usual, the narrator does a wonderful job. She's one of my favs. Would love to find more books with these same two characters. I didn't realize there was one prior to this but since I know the outcome from having listened to this one, I'm not sure I'll get it.
It's a low-down dirty shame the depths that the "saints" of the church will sink to in order to get what they want. The divas' deviousness is unlimited in their fight to become the First Lady of the National Baptist Association.
Yes, this novel is a "hot mess" but entertaining and enjoyable. If you are looking for something that's not too deep, something that will give you a few good laughs, this novel is a good investment. I have read a few of Victoria Murray's novels and I have enjoyed them. This novel, I believe, was a bit more entertaining for me because it was my first time encountering Rachel Adams and Cecilia King. It was fun learning about them.
Of course, the performance by the fabulous Patricia Floyd was stellar!
I was happy to hear that Lady Jasmine and Rachel would be in a book together. And like always I was not let down. This was a good book from beginning to end. I am looking forward to book #2 January 2013.
Fort Worth, texas native and I love to READ!!!!
I was completely engaged throughout the entire book. I was on the edge of my seat! Great Read!
What an interesting question…
Well .. Since I’ve been a member of audible.com for over 10 years its obvious I enjoy audio versions of books.
As to your question would I consider the audio version better than the print version, well I don’t have the printed version of this book so I really cannot compare. I believe I have all of Victoria’s, ’ Jasmine’ series in the printed version, and yes I enjoyed them as well. What I can say is this, my daughter and I started this book around the same time she had the printed and I had the audio, and I finished the book. As a matter of fact she did say it was hard getting through the first couple of chapters and she loves reading Victoria’s books so based on that i guess I would have to say the audio edition of Sinners & Saints is better than the printed version.
i think in this book it would be Mae Francis. i like the turn of events and it wasn't predictable. I was very pleased that she was true to her friendship to Jasmine although she had me worried there for a little bit.
i think so. I haven't read any of Reshonda's books, but Victoria Christopher is one of my favorite writers. This book was well written, the collaboration flowed naturaly .
Ghetto vs Bolshie
I was pleased with Jasmin’s willingness to put her family’s safety ahead of her own selfishness and need to beat out her opponent.
The battle between Jasmine and Rachel
When Jasmine and Rachel find out who is in the running
When Jasmine and fight for attention when they go shopping.
Mae Francis b/c no matter what or where we go she'll keep a smile on my face.
This is a great book, inspirational but also very humorous..
The church moment are always good.
I just love Patricia Floyd, she really brings life to the books reads.
This was the first audio book I read, and I think it was phenomenal. I read all of the Jasmin series and to see her character come alive from the voice of the narrator was amazing!
The constant cat fights between Jasmin and Rachael
The scene at the store
all of it was great!
A must listen to
I made the mistake of reading Friends and Foe first so I was already familar with the characters and knew the results of the election . I was so excited to see what the two First Ladies were going to do next to each other . The cat fighting was halarious. Surprise by Cecilia King hands in Rachel and Jasmine antics.
