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 twelve-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. Her friend Janine, a college professor, also is worried her boyfriend Antonio is cheating on her and getting heavily into drug dealing. She kicks him out but Antonio won’t take no for an answer.
