Publisher's Summary

Ask Kennedi Mason and she'll say she and her husband, Blake, have a good marriage. That's why she can't wait to tell Blake the fabulous news - that something he's always wanted has finally happened. But when Blake arrives home that evening, he has an announcement of his own, one that shocks Kennedi into silence.

A poignant and witty story of hope and perception, expectation and illusion, One in a Million beautifully shows us that sometimes what we think we have and what we think we want aren't real at all.

Waste of Time and Money

I rarely regret reading, or listening to a book. This is one of the few times. Main character is whinny and wimpy. Plot, dialogue and character development is simplistic. Even the narration was off, often overenthusiastic or too slow and drawn out.

Roller coaster read, just like life & love

Great book, so much like real life when you let love be the benefit of doubt giving one chance after another. Enjoyed the narration and thought that it moved very well, kept your interest.

Couldn't wait for it to end

What would have made One in a Million better?

Better Dialogue, a more believable timeline and a less idiotic wife

What was most disappointing about Kimberla Lawson Roby’s story?

The entire way that the story unfolded was not believable and the conversations...would never happen

Which character – as performed by Nehassaiu deGannes – was your favorite?

Patrice. Although I couldn't stand any of them

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was a good story line in theory, it just wasn't executed well

Any additional comments?

I understand that she likes to write for the church congregation but these saintly conversations she's making take place have been truly far fetched.

Corny so predictable thank god it didn't last long

What disappointed you about One in a Million?

Not Roby's usual work! The story line has been done so often that as soon as she mention the surprise there was really no reason to finish the story. I won't stop reading Roby's stories, but I waste a credit on them again

Has One in a Million turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, but I will borrow the books from a friend and read it, I won't waste a credit

What aspect of Nehassaiu deGannes’s performance would you have changed?

She did the best she could with such a shallow story

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. Why mention Rev Black it he was not part of the story

Any additional comments?

Nothing, I could change the product now it out there.
