Publisher's Summary

Michele Andrea Bowen made a name for herself years ago during the African-American inspirational fiction craze. Now, in Pastor Needs a Boo, she's back with an amazing journey of faith, drama, and love.

It was a regular New Jerusalem Gospel United Church work day for Reverend Denzelle Flowers when Veronica Washington, Keisha Jackson, and Marsha Metcalf showed up after losing their jobs on the same day, same morning, and almost at the same time. Denzelle struggled to solve that first problem. The other problem - the lovely Marsha - would be much harder to solve. Denzelle didn't even know how to fight wanting to turn in the playah's card and getting "booed" up with the poster girl for "church girls". Marsha Metcalf and her fellow unemployed church members aren't Denzelle's biggest problem, though. He is running for bishop, and his enemies - a more ruthless consortium of corrupted clergy - want power badly enough to go to rather extreme lengths for it because the stakes are just that high. Now, his ex-wife was back and sleeping with the enemy, digging for dirt. Reverend Denzelle can't fight this battle alone. This pastor needs a "boo" who will stand by his side. Before the dust settles, both Marsha and Denzelle's faith and love will be put to the ultimate test.

Waste of my time

The title made me not want to buy it, but I read the reviews & thought I would give it a try. This book is nothing but a bunch of church foolishness of Pimps and Gangster preachers. Even the main characters weren't likable to me. This is not a Christian fiction book where you can identify with the characters. It's more of a stereotypical idea of Pastors being pimps to me, carrying guns, macking on women 😐👎.

I so enjoyed this book!

While I tend to stick with a few genres I enjoy, I decided to try this book frankly because the title made me chuckle. I know, I know, you can't judge a book and all that... Nevertheless, when I got into the storyline, I found the characters engaging and the content hilarious. I loved the inclusion of the music and a plot that I could identify with. In fact, I'm hoping this book is part of a series because I'd love to listen through some more church shenanigans.

Love the author hated the recording

Thought it was too short and there was a lot of missing bits of the storyline. The recording was hesitating.

The title of this book is so true!!!

I have to say the title both intrigue me and made me laugh so I decided to read this book I’m so glad I did. Lord knows I’ve been part of the church that acted just like these folks in the story. this story was well developed and so were the characters you almost feel like you know them

Okay less than I expected

I was really disappointed in this book. I have been a fan of Bowen for a long time. this story line seems repetative and like the other ones. And the narration was not good at all.
