Good read

I am such a fan of this series! Alicia's storyline isn't as interesting to me as that of Curtis and Charlotte, though. I really like this narrator!

Enough!

I used to think the Rev. Curtis Black storyline was interesting and had more to offer with each secondary character the authored introduced ... but it's too much to see his son-in-law (Rev. Valentine) doing the same thing.

I've had enough of the trifling preachers and the trampy women who throw themselves at them in this series. I'm tired of them stealing money from the church and flaunting their wealth. Their inner struggle becomes laughable. How many times can you keep saying you want to do "right," but keep doing wrong? We don't believe you anymore. And the showdowns in the sanctuary are played out. How is it that every book in this series has a climactic scene in the church?

I'm glad I know the Lord for myself, because stories like these with only one or two virtuous characters might make me question if there are any Christians in the church at all. Please let ALL the characters in the Rev. Curtis Black series go. They've served their purpose. The author is far too talented of a storyteller to keep getting stuck in this mees. Please move on!

I am a Fan

I have enjoyed the Rev. Black books for years and this one put his daughter in the same footsteps we have seen him make. This time her morales are laxed and her new husband is the pain.

Very good read; hard to put down

This author proves once again that she can write and tell a story! This book is a very good read, and anyone following the Curtis Black family will marvel at his redemption in the faith community, and how his daughter Alisha marries someone just like her father! Overall, an enjoyable read. At times, I found it hard to put this book down!. Definitely worth the read!

A generous 4 star

The story line was pretty good. It was a tad predictable. Didn't like readers voice.

Narration

I think she should have actual male voices, instead of women trying to sound like a man
But it was good. I wondered what would happen to JT not enough if you ask me.

Kinda predictable

The narrator’s voice was to mature for the main character. It as ok, but not a must read
