Publisher's Summary

First ladies of the Baptist church and sworn frenemies Rachel Jackson Adams and Jasmine Cox Larson Bush are stunned to learn they may have more in common than they thought - like who's their daddy - in the scandalous new collaboration between national best-selling and award-winning authors ReShonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray.

A heated American Baptist Coalition election. A murky murder cover-up. An outrageous reality TV show. What in heaven's name kind of drama will holy rivals Rachel Jackson Adams and Jasmine Cox Larson Bush - prominent first ladies of the Baptist church - get themselves into next?

Since he first met Jasmine, Rachel's father, Simon Jackson, has had a funny feeling about her. She eerily resembles his first teenage love. After doing some digging, Simon makes a shocking revelation - Jasmine may be his daughter. Rachel thinks the idea is absurd, but to pacify her ailing father, she sets out to debunk his theory. When Jasmine discovers what's going on, she heads to the Jackson family reunion in Smackover, Arkansas, in search of the truth. With her sidekick Mae Frances by her side, this big-city girl isn't ready for the country or for the over-the-top family that she may have to claim as her own.

Enjoyed the book, but...

OMG! Jasmine got on my nerves in this book. Her drama about not wanting to meet her father went on entirely too long! I would've rather her get to know him and have a happy ending, hearing his explanation than continue with that drama, I almost stopped listening!! Glad that's over!! The narrator however was awesome as usual.
Smooches!!

Boring.

I struggled to finish this one. Had a couple of funny parts with Mae Francis. Patricia R. Floyd did a good job as the narrator as usual.

GREAT BUT JASMINE

Being a fan of both Victoria and ReShonda I enjoy reading all their books, but this time Jasmine was too over the top for me, it took awhile for me to stomach her and finish.
