Jasmine still unlikeable poor hosea

listened to this on audible. the narrator did a good job.

Storyline
pace falters in places, unnecessarily wordy and repetitive and it's easy to get distracted. it was unnecessarily drawn out with repetitive inner monologues. overall a decent listen

random thoughts-

even through this horrible situation jasmine was still an unlikeable character and hosea still garnered your sympathies as did others who were a part of the bush family. I was left wondering again if Jasmine loves Hosea or just loves being a first lady.

the alexis/brian arc was uninteresting-alexis' character is still unlikeable. maybe if her character took accountability for the outcome of her situation then maybe, but I doubt it. the character was created as a judgemental, close minded person, ridiculous and remained that way with no growth thus far. What was the draw to her for Brian? Did he just enjoy chasing a woman? There relationship didn't make sense in this book for me.
alexis, jasmine and kyla remind me of a description i saw on social media called the petty olympics.

phenomenal book

I love this book and the entire Jasmine series I just wish that she would have numbered the books in order because I've been looking for this book because I read all the books out of order and I feel like I need to go back and start from the first book.. but now I don't remember which book was first

Don't miss what ya got till it's gone.

What did you love best about Sins of the Mother?

It really brought reality to life.

What did you like best about this story?

Jasmine had face the fact that no matter how much she questioned or didn't believe in God, he was always in control and she had to always give all things to him in faith.

What does Patricia Floyd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brought so much more emotion and illusion to the story.

Yes, I had such an emotion that kept me have such a concern feeling physically and mentally

Liked it but...

I kind of felt like there was something missing in the story line. Almost as if there was a previous book and this was the continuation. I wish there was more detail in Brian and Alex relationship. But other than that it was ok. Also I love Patricia Floyd! She did a great job as usual!
