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.

Good book

I found myself talking out loud about the characters while listening. The word “crazy” was used quite often. Lol. The narrator was good and I really enjoyed the variation of the character voices. The twists and turns in the story kept me engaged and intrigued.

A family of the cloth, the epitome of sin!!

I tell you one thing this family definitely brings you the drama....... This book made me see the true meaning of no sin is greater than the other. Curtis and Charlotte are basically trying to contend that in every book thus far.

It also amazes me how Charlotte can be such a manipulator but never seem to noticed when she's being manipulated in such a basic way I might add, or how her bs detector only goes off in other people situations but not her own. I'm glad Janine got gee happy ending. She's a good person and she deserved it. Also I couldn't understand why Charlotte blamed Curtis for Marissa plummeting to her death that was wrong on so many levels. That was a super sad time in the book because eventhough Marissa was something else in the making I didn't want to see her die, especially such a violent one.

Curtis need to realize you reap what you sow. So eventhough Charlotte was wrong he laid the foundation of all the adultery, lying, and scheming. So it was bound to come back full circle. It amazes me that they both speak of being honest but when they are faced with situations after they've talked about being honest they turn around and do something else on a colossal scale..... I love this series though.
