Publisher's Summary

Holy Ghost Corner is an inspiring story about one woman's hopes for a blessed future with the right man, as she struggles with her own religious principles.

Theresa Hopson is the successful owner of one of the hottest new stores in Durham, North Carolina: Miss Thang's Holy Ghost Corner and Church Women's Boutique. But success isn't enough without someone to share it with. Theresa needs a God-fearing, intelligent, hard-working, and loving man. Unfortunately, the pickings are slim.

Reverend Parvell Sykes is the assistant pastor at Theresa's church, but behind his public persona, he's greedy and conniving. The only other single, successful man in town is attractive Lamont Green, who hasn't seen the inside of a church in years. But God works in mysterious ways, and Theresa must trust Him in order to find true happiness.

Essence number-one best-selling author Michele Andrea Bowen pens saucy African-American stories with Christian themes.

Poor narrator and a very boring story

I listen to alot of audio books and this story is almost unbareable to even hear even on low volume. The character names in this story are so GHETTO, too ridiculous to even remember. And the plot and story line is really bad. I wasted so much time listening to this story that I could have gotten a root canal which I would have enjoyed better.

Narrator didn't do it for me!!!

I've read the hard copy of this book several times & love it. That is the reason why I bought this book on Audible. But I was truly disappointed when I heard the narrator. I expected much better!!!! The narrator from the other books by Mrs. Bowen were so much better!!! in not sure if I'll keep this.

I did not feel the Holy Ghost

Would you try another book from Michele Andrea Bowen and/or Saidah Arrika Ekulona?

I really like the narrator I have heard her on other novels and I like how she express the characters.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I like the battle between Lamont and Jethro for the housing bid. The romance between Theresa and Lamont could have been done better.

Did Holy Ghost Corner inspire you to do anything?

I did inspire me not to judge people on their outside appearance Ms. Babydoll's character was done very well.

Worthy read/listen!!

I found it engaging because the author held true to the male perspective as well as the female perspective. This one is worth your points.

  • Overall

Boring

I have read others books by this author this is not her best work. I couldn't finish it. The story line is boring and very difficult to keeep up with. The characters are dry.

not christian inspirational

Although there are no sex scenes in this book there is a lot of sexual talk and innuendos.
