Publisher's Summary

Kimberla Lawson Roby's fans can't get enough of the Reverend Curtis Black - that self-justifying, greedy, womanizing flimflam man who is one of the biggest rascals ever to step into a church.

In this outing, Curtis is starting over. He has a new job and a new wife, and of course he's convinced himself that this time he'll be good. But Curtis hasn't ever made a promise he could keep, and before long, he's up to his old tricks. The difference now is his third wife. She's unlike any woman Curtis has met before. And for the first time in his life, Curtis just might have met his match. Watch the sparks fly!

Contains mature themes.

My how the tides have turned

This was a good book. I like this author. She does a great job with just enough to keep you interested and not too much trash. I can't believe how the father-n-law snapped on his wife.

Wow!!!

All I have to say is Curtis and Charlotte are meant for each other. They're thought process is parallel and they don't even know it. I love this series and I love the narrator!

So i became a fan od Curtis until he wantwd to go back ...just do the right thing man!

I laughed a lot in this book the situations were hilarous 🤣
Seems like the saga will always have someone cheating so Im just in it for the story line now.
Good book though!

the best narration

the narrator was great she was awesome in maintaining each character's personality. loved the story line this should be a collection if a pt 2 doesn't exists. I'm curious about a follow up story line.

True to Life

A lot of what is in this book is so true to life; it had several funny moments and also serious ones. I am really liking this series and looking forward to book 4. Great book and narrator!

Curtis Vs Chatolette

This book is was pretty good, Curtis finally met his match. Charolette learned from the best, she gave Curtis what he wanted all alone. Someone who carry out his legacy. On to the next book.
