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.

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.

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.

I just can’t

I normally don’t write negative reviews but I just could not continue to listen to the narrator! And the story line was cheesy and I just couldn’t. Sorry!

Fire the Narrator

My first impression of the Narrator was at times, she sounded too upbeat when the storyline called for anger. I could barely discern from one character to the next as her tone of voice rarely changed andthe main character was naive and simple at best. The standout character is Patrice as she was the most realistic. The story line read more like a soap opera than anything. Although, I'm a big fan of Lawson, this by far is one of her weakest books. GLAD I DIDN'T PAY FOR IT.

Loved it

I really enjoyed the book. Old Blake got what he deserved. The only thing I didn't like the narrator's voice.
