Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Kimberla Lawson Roby has made a name for herself with such engaging novels as Casting the First Stone and Here and Now.

In The Best of Everything, Roby employs her trademark storytelling prowess to relate the tale of a woman whose life is complicated by the fact that her father is none other than Reverend Curtis Black.

Alicia Black Sullivan swore to never repeat her father's mistakes: she would never break any promises, she would never be unfaithful. And most important of all, when she got married, it would be for good. And she really does love Phillip, the assistant pastor of her father's church. She just happens to love money - and the things it can buy - as well.

Alicia was born to the good life, she's entitled to the best, and she'll do anything to get it. Even if it means piling up thousands of dollars in debt. Even if it means denying to everyone - even herself - that her love of shopping has gotten way out of control.

    "Nice break!"

    This is a nice break from the shenanigans of Curtis and Charlotte, however, it is the same behavior and similar storylines. I guess we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of our parents, well at least in this case we are.

    "Good read"

    I am such a fan of this series! Alicia's storyline isn't as interesting to me as that of Curtis and Charlotte, though.

    "Slow read"

    This was a slow read. I should have read book seven instead but I wanted to be sure I had the back story for the next book.

    "Narrator was least favorite part!"

    Loved the book! Despised the narration... Awful pauses, terrible inflections. But the story was intense!!

    Story
    "Redundant"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I only recommend it if you are reading the series in order.


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

    I listened to this book simply because I am listening to the entire series on Curtis Black. So I struggled to get through it because it seems like the ENTIRE story talks about her shopping everywhere. I wish there was more to the story but it was very redundant. It makes no sense how she writes about her trips to the mall or her spending habits in EVERY chapter.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I hated the voice of the narrator.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO.
