What was the pastor of New Day Temple of Faith thinking, approving the creation of the New Day Singles Ministry? Better yet, what were its members thinking when they joined? Doreen, lovingly known as the Church Mother of New Day, thought that when she presented the idea of the ministry to the pastor, it could serve as a foundation to empower, encourage, and enlighten the church's single members.

I enjoyed the story line, but the narrator was bad at best. It was hard to follow and to even get through this audio book, because of the narrator. I really wanted to hear the series from the beginning and that is the only reason I did not stop all together.

One would think that once we get to the mo betta stage of life (i.e. late 30s-early 40s) we should know all about our inner fool and how to deal with them, right? Wrong! Meet five friends all battling with the biggest fool any of them has ever known...themselves! Yes, everyone plays the fool. There is no exception to the rule. But what do you do when the fool is you?

If you could sum up Toast to the Fool in three words, what would they be?

It was a pretty good read but the narrator was HORRIBLE!! It was very hard to get past the narrator so it took longer for me to get through the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Toast to the Fool?

One of the most memorable moments of Toast to the Fool, was when Nia found that her 2 best friends slept together.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance would have been better with more practice or maybe a different reader.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moment that moved me most, was when each character realized how much of a fool they'd been.

Any additional comments?

The story-line was really good, but it is very hard to get past poor narrating.

Growing up poor in Texas, Vera Lomax used every gold-digging trick in the book to land a rich husband. Now living in the lap of luxury in San Francisco, her only job is to fawn over her much-older husband, so it's been easy for her to balance a life of shopping and affairs with younger men with a major secret: the 16-year bribery of one of her husband's mistresses to keep her pregnancy under wraps. Vera figures that a little hush money every month will ensure her husband's fortune is hers alone....

This book was very slow moving, I found myself saying (throughout the entire book) "hurry and get to the point". The storyline was okay but the author just went on and on and on about the same thing. I found that the ending somewhat of a let down, because there was no resolution to the problem.

Less than three weeks from the moment 34-year-old Rhapsody Blue first set her eyes on 21-year-old Malcolm Washington, her life has been turned upside down. It was lust at first sight, and Rhapsody isn't going to let young Malcolm leave her presence without a promise to fulfill her fantasy. Malcolm had no idea when he accepted Rhapsody's invitation to her bedroom that he was selling his soul to the devil.

I must admit I'm somewhat disappointed, I was expecting much more from this book. In order for me to give it just two stars it was pretty bad the storyline started out good and ended up poorly. The ending was one of the worst I've ever seen no closure.
