Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author ReShonda Tate Billinglsey comes a charming novel filled with love, laughter, inspiration, and drama as Pastor Terrance searches for his Mrs. Right. 

Most men barely survive one mother, but Terrance Ellis has three: his aunts. His grandmother Essie's sisters - Eva, Dorothy Mae, and Mamie - lovingly raised him after Essie died in a tragic accident. They made sure that troubled young Terrance got on the right path and made something of his life. And now that he's all grown up and the rising pastor of Houston's Lily Grove church, the endlessly argumentative sisters agree on one thing: Terrance needs to find a wife. And not just any wife - but the right young woman to stand beside him as First Lady of Lily Grove at the fast-approaching 100th year Christmas service. 

Humble and handsome, Terrance is focused on preaching more than dating and has kindly fended off the advances of more than a few perfectly available ladies. So why, of all women, is outrageous, flirtatious Savannah McKinney drawing him in? Seeing Terrance falling under her seductive spell has got his aunts frantically matchmaking since time is running out and gossip is flying. Who will be the pastor's wife? Only heaven knows for sure...and before he finds her, some surprising and dramatic revelations are in store for Terrance, his congregation, and the three aunts who love him most in the world.

Entertaining

Absolutely loved it! Janina Edwards is becoming one of my favorite narrators. I enjoyed the story from beginning to end. The elder women of the church were quite entertaining and made for good comic relief. Terrance annoyed me a little at times and I figured out fairly early how the climax would ultimately unfold but it was still a great book. Not surprising as the author is a phenomenal storyteller. I always look forward to her books. And this one I highly recommend.

Thirsty

Their are so many thirsty women in the world its crazy. I felt bad for Terrance holding that secret for so long. I figured he would get with his secretary. This was a good book the narrator was good as well.

Good story, annoying character "voices"

The squeaky voices used to depict many of the women characters made this hard to listen to. The story made it worth it but it was quite annoying.

The Pastor's Wife

A wonderful book that depicts the ups and downs of being a single pastor of a church, dealing with family, friends, church members who think they know what is best for you AND the single ladies who set their sites on becoming the church's First Lady.

You will love it!
