Publisher's Summary

Best friends Charlotte and Janine have serious problems with their love lives. Charlotte's husband, the flashy preacher Curtis Black, may keep her living in luxury, but his book tours and evangelism mean he's never home. Charlotte's sure he's cheating and even hires a PI to follow him, but she's been known to have indiscretions herself. Her 12-year-old, Matthew, is another man's son, and she suspects troubled five-year-old, Marissa, whom she swore was Curtis' child, might be the result of a tryst with a schizophrenic.

Charlotte's friend Janine, a college professor, also is worried that her boyfriend, Antonio, is cheating on her, as well as getting heavily into drug dealing. She kicks him out, but Antonio won't take no for an answer.

    "Hilarious!"

    Love & Lies was truly a "piece of work". Apparently this story is part of a series, however it's not necessary that you read the previous books. The narrarator pulled me right on in and the writer had me cracking up. I found myself talking to my iPod trying to offer advice. If you want something to make you laugh, yet is filled with drama - this is the book for you.

    "A first-class production"

    This book had a nice tempo to the storyline that held my attention throughout. The characters were well developed -- so much so that I wanted to jump in and strangle some of the guys myself! The best part of all was the narrator. What a delight! The voices she used really brought the story to life.

    ""A Keeper""

    I have enjoyed listening to this "True to Real Life" book. It does appear that the author has done her research about human behavior. People can be and many are sinful, and can be doubt-minded even within the House of God. Listen to this book and judge for yourself. I am not much on writing reviews but this time I had to response.

    "Love and Lies"

    I really enjoyed this book, I couldn't put it down. The Characters Charlotte and Genine had extremely interesting lives, I found myself thinking that these were real people. My hat goes off to Kimberla Lawson Roley. Thank you for another great book.

    "Wow!"

    Loved it! It was very messy and drama filled. The life lessons about choices made is relatable to real life.

    "Excellent Storyline..."

    The narration really added depth to the story.
    The voice used for Marissa Black was haunting.

    Story
    "Love the Black Family"
    What made the experience of listening to Love & Lies the most enjoyable?

    Narrator Tracey Leigh is a great fit! She should narrate all of the Curtis Black Series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Charlotte and Baby Marrissa. I'm glad Janine stood her ground and found Carl and realized she didn't have to settle for less.


    Which character – as performed by Tracey Leigh – was your favorite?

    Baby Marrissa and that loser Antonio


    If you could take any character from Love & Lies out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Not sure there is just one. I would like to sit and talk with all the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Kimberla Lawson Roby is one of my favorite writers.
