Evan Murdoch hoped things had finally settled down in his life. But now he's caught between two feuding women: his pregnant fiancée and his recovering alcoholic wife, who's fighting their divorce with every dirty, seductive trick she's got. But even that doesn't compare to the dangerous secret Evan's harboring - one that could send a Murdoch to jail for a very long time.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This one just didn't do it for me like the last two books did. I was just boring and predictable. Not sure I will continue to read this series.

Would you ever listen to anything by Shelly Ellis again?

Yes

What disappointed you about Copycat?

Absolutely NOTHING happens in the book. No suspense, plot twist or turns. The story goes no where. The character do nothing but get in arguments and then leave. This book just has page after page of useless detail about how a lady buys the same material things that another lady has.

What could Kimberla Lawson Roby have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Made a compelling book. That would have been nice. I can't believe that this book made it to print and that it gets any good reviews at all. Totally rushed through and boring.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was okay.

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

Anger! I pre-ordered this book, because I am a loyal fan of Roby's work. But this book is trash and I wish I could get my money back.

It's been four years since 28-year-old Alicia Black, daughter of Reverend Curtis Black, divorced her second husband, the most womanizing and corrupt man she has ever known. Since then, Alicia has been dating her first husband, Phillip Sullivan, a wonderfully kind and true man of God whom she'd hurt terribly by cheating on him. Alicia has worked hard to prove herself worthy of his trust once more, and when he asks her to marry him again, she couldn't be happier.

The narrator voices ages the male characters more than I would like. It makes envision super old men walking around hunching over with a cane and gray hair. However, this was a great read!

They call themselves the Blackbirds. Kwanzaa Browne, Indigo Abdulrahaman, Destiny Jones, and Ericka Stockwell are four best friends who are closer than sisters and will go to the ends of the earth for one another. Yet even their deep bond can't heal all wounds from their individual pasts as the collegiate and postcollegiate women struggle with their own demons, drama, and desires.

This super long book had a hard time keeping my interest. However, I pressed on thinking that it would turn up at the end. EJD books usually have really good endings. It didn't. It was just sacked with a bunch of filler content that really went no where. Endless amounts of useless details and conversation. This book could have been oodles of chapters shorter without all of it. My expectations were way off. I thought the flu like symptoms that Indigo had would lead to non curable std from her cheating baller on again off again bf. Nope! I thought she would discover this by spying on him with the phone. I thought Destiny would discover her meds or paperwork when Erica told her to go to Indigo's to look for condoms. Nope! I thought Erica would end up killing herself and/or mother and possibly Indigo's dad. Nope! Or find Mr. Jones dead in his sleep due to illness complications . I expected more to develop from the Kwanzaa lawsuit and new beau. Nope! Destiny's storyline did ok, I guess. However, it fizzled too. This read was pretty much three days of my life I can't get back. Normally, I LOVE EJD books, but eh on this one.
