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.

    "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.

    "Loved it"

    I couldn't put the book down, it was very entertaining and kept me wanting more. The narrator was excellent and I look forward to this ReShonda and Victoria's next book.

    "Less excitement about this installment"

    I struggled to finish this installment of Rachel and Jasmine. Storyline was kind of boring and there was no real excitement this time. As aways, enjoyed the narrator who as usual came through!

    "I love this series… However Jasmine is annoying"

    I really enjoyed the series and I look for new books all the time from this author and the storyline. However this storyline took a long time to get to a very disappointing and lackluster end. I usually enjoy the Jasmine character but she was over-the-top stubborn and sometimes extremely ignorant and because of that I did not enjoy the storyline. The The other characters coddled her when They really should've just cussed her out and called her what she was ignorant and stupid. The The storyline ended with a very basic
