Publisher's Summary

The congregation at the Freedom Temple Church of God in Christ doesn't know what to think when their pastor, Bishop Lance Howell, returns from a vacation in Jamaica with a wife in tow. As if Lady Elect Arykah Miles' false eyelashes, scarlet red fingernails, and fishnet stockings aren't flashy enough, the blond wigs and sky-high stilettos she wears send Mother Gussie Hughes and Mother Pansie Bowak into panic mode. The mothers of the church don't take too kindly to the fact that Pastor Howell chose to marry outside of the congregation. One look at Lady Arykah and the mothers know that she isn't likely to be controlled. Arykah proves that to be true when she refuses to tone down her attire. Determined to oust Lady Elect Arykah Miles, the mothers put a plan in motion to show Arykah how much she isn't liked or wanted. An all-out war ensues, and the church mothers are willing to try some pretty devious antics to get rid of Arykah. What they don't know is that Arykah is from the streets, and she fought hard to get to where she is. She's ready to prove to the whole congregation that, like it or not, she's here to stay.

Not at all what I expected

I truly enjoyed this book and I loved the way that Lady Erica and the Bishop worked together as a team. This book opened my eyes to how conniving some church people can be and the situations that arose are realistic. I thought that this book would be too churchy but it was not at all like I expected. I have read Lutisha Lovely books and they didn't keep me as captivated and wanting to read on like this book did. Good book and the characters fit perfectly.

My kind of story

This book was different than what I'm used to. It was not exciting, thrilling, or action packed but I enjoyed listening to it all the same. The author and narrator did a great job.

First Lady

This book was recommended by audible.. It was one of my best audible reads ever. I enjoyed the story and the church characters were sadly true to life. Arykah was removing barriers to the .Most High. Great Story!! Entertaining!

Churchalishious

The authenticity of the church denomination and the city was great. It gave a more realistic swag.
