    "Don't waste a credit"
    What disappointed you about The Reverend's Wife?

    The story was boring and poorly written.


    What was most disappointing about Kimberla Lawson Roby’s story?

    I know this is fiction but the story was simply ridiculous


    How could the performance have been better?

    I don't think anything could have improved the book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    This is definitely the worst book I have ever read. I will never buy a book written by this author again. I question how it got published! If I could have rated it a negative star, I would have done so.

    "Great disappointment..."

    I am a long time fan of Mrs. Roby, and I have read all of her books. This is the first time I have ever been disappointed. Curtis Black is no ordinary minister and his wife is not your average first lady. This book never grasped my full attention and the characters were "boring". I kept waiting for something, anything to happen, and it didn't. By the time the book wrapped up I was bitter. I wasted a credit on this. It happens to the best of us. I expected more and felt that this book was rushed. I expected more from the Black family and this seem like a formula that has already been used. Sorry Kimberla, you lost me with this one.

    I am a retired Army veteran and love to read. I like murder mystery, but enjoy nonfiction. I am a long time Star Trek fan.

    "More of the Same"
    Would you try another book from Kimberla Lawson Roby and/or Maria Howell?

    I love Kimberla Lawson Roby but the Curtis Black stories contain so much of the same drama that it is played out. New charactors and plots are needed. At the end of the book I notice his son has gotten the girlfriend pregnant so the drama continues.


    Has The Reverend's Wife turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was okay, but the narractor often sound like they had dry mouth.


    Could you see The Reverend's Wife being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.

    "Could the Blacks finally be on track?"

    I have loved the trials of the Black family since the first book and now in this latest book, could they finally be on track? I certainly hope not. Curtis shows that he is working to keep his promise to God; or is he? I could feel his struggles that he was having with his faith as he moves towards a decision that could not only upset his youngest child but also his congregation. The book was a wonderful listen and Mrs. Roby did not disappoint, however, Charlotte did work on my nerves with her begging and pleading. I cannot wait to see what the Black family will bring us next.

    "Not her best"

    This book picks up from the previous book. It lacks umph, and WOW factor.

    I guess the church members are not intuitive in this book. When did Charlotte become an alcoholic?

    Maybe it was the narrator and not me, I don't know. This one gets 5 stars for snoozer!!!

    What did you love best about The Reverend's Wife?

    I continue to enjoy reading how Rev Curtis Black and his family struggle with love and their faith every day and how the poor choices that they have made not only impact their lives but those closet to them. How many more secrets are there!! LOL

    "Having fun with the series!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Reverend's Wife to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I think the audio edition of this book is better than the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how the characters interacted, and how the author deals with the concept of forgiveness.


    What does Maria Howell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I am not sure...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, this book is fun and is an enjoyable part of the Rev. Curtis Black series.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Kimberla Lawson Roby's books! I hope the series continue!
