Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Kimberla Lawson Roby comes the ninth installment in her award-winning Reverend Curtis Black series.

It's been months since Reverend Curtis learned that his wife Charlotte had affairs with two different men, and for now, he continues to be cordial and respectful to her. But he's also made it clear that once their son Matthew graduates high school, he will be filing for divorce. Charlotte, on the other hand, continues to do everything possible to make amends in hopes of saving their marriage.

Unfortunately, Curtis is ready to move on and is being propositioned by a woman who desperately wants to become the next Mrs. Curtis Black. When the situation heads down a path that is frighteningly shocking, could it be the final blow to this once blessed union?

Great disappointment...

I am a long time fan of Mrs. Roby, and I have read all of her books. This is the first time I have ever been disappointed. Curtis Black is no ordinary minister and his wife is not your average first lady. This book never grasped my full attention and the characters were "boring". I kept waiting for something, anything to happen, and it didn't. By the time the book wrapped up I was bitter. I wasted a credit on this. It happens to the best of us. I expected more and felt that this book was rushed. I expected more from the Black family and this seem like a formula that has already been used. Sorry Kimberla, you lost me with this one.

Not her best

This book picks up from the previous book. It lacks umph, and WOW factor.

I guess the church members are not intuitive in this book. When did Charlotte become an alcoholic?

Maybe it was the narrator and not me, I don't know. This one gets 5 stars for snoozer!!!

More of the Same

Would you try another book from Kimberla Lawson Roby and/or Maria Howell?

I love Kimberla Lawson Roby but the Curtis Black stories contain so much of the same drama that it is played out. New charactors and plots are needed. At the end of the book I notice his son has gotten the girlfriend pregnant so the drama continues.

Has The Reverend's Wife turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

It was okay, but the narractor often sound like they had dry mouth.

Could you see The Reverend's Wife being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No.

I know this is fiction but the story was simply ridiculous

How could the performance have been better?

I don't think anything could have improved the book.

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

disappointment

Any additional comments?

This is definitely the worst book I have ever read. I will never buy a book written by this author again. I question how it got published! If I could have rated it a negative star, I would have done so.

Could the Blacks finally be on track?

I have loved the trials of the Black family since the first book and now in this latest book, could they finally be on track? I certainly hope not. Curtis shows that he is working to keep his promise to God; or is he? I could feel his struggles that he was having with his faith as he moves towards a decision that could not only upset his youngest child but also his congregation. The book was a wonderful listen and Mrs. Roby did not disappoint, however, Charlotte did work on my nerves with her begging and pleading. I cannot wait to see what the Black family will bring us next.

Tired

When will Curtis learn? For real, no o e is this dumb or this dense! I would live to believe people actually learn from their mistakes. What can't the characters in this series?! Why?!

This was the evolution of Charlotte. A tale of redemption, intercession and love.. Theme forgiveness.

Not Satisfied

Disappointed in the story line and the narrator. Definitely not what I thought it would be. I felt that the ending was too abrupt.
