From New York Times best-selling author Kimberla Lawson Roby comes the ninth installment in her award-winning Reverend Curtis Black series.

It's been months since Reverend Curtis learned that his wife Charlotte had affairs with two different men, and for now, he continues to be cordial and respectful to her. But he's also made it clear that once their son Matthew graduates high school, he will be filing for divorce. Charlotte, on the other hand, continues to do everything possible to make amends in hopes of saving their marriage.

Unfortunately, Curtis is ready to move on and is being propositioned by a woman who desperately wants to become the next Mrs. Curtis Black. When the situation heads down a path that is frighteningly shocking, could it be the final blow to this once blessed union?

    " I was able to read this book in about four hours. It was a good read. In the last book, I could not stand Charlotte, but I actually felt a little bad for her in this book. The themes that I enjoyed the most in this story are resilience and forgiveness. Charlotte really puts in work to keep Curtis from leaving her. At times I wondered why she didn't just pack up and leave when he made it clear that he wanted nothing to do with her. I realized that in life you fight for the things that are important to you. The other theme that I enjoyed was forgiveness. Even though, Charlotte was despicable in the last book, just about all of the main characters wanted to see her and Curtis work it out. Their family and friends served as a really positive community for both of them and prayed for their marriage, whereas in reality most folks would have begged Curtis to run in the opposite direction of Charlotte. The crazy stalker that appears in most of the stories about the Blacks is getting a bit old. I fully expected it and was not surprised. Crazy attracts crazy and the Blacks have a ton of crazy and drama going on in their life, but Sharon's character was very predictable and even her back story seemed redundant. Seems like there is at least one psycho character in every story about the Blacks. Regardless, I enjoyed the story and am hoping that Roby will give her readers a new book from Matthew's point of view. I would love to read how his parent's antics have effected him. I also sense that there is a bit more to Racquel's character. Charlotte sensed something was amiss with the girl and if anyone would know about deceptive women it would be Mrs. Charlotte Black. Excellent work, Roby. "

    " The Rev. Curtis Black series is one of my faves and it seems like it's taken forever for the author to pick up where she'd left off. So, once again, we're dumped into the crazy world surrounding a mega-church preacher and his wife. If you've been following this series, I'm sorry, but this is the most disappointing one of the bunch. It really only has one scandal which is nipped in the bud before it even gets a chance to grow...and that's about it. And, the author did not leave room for another Rev. Curtis Black story, so...this might be the end. Good read, but nothing to write home about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine Brandt | 12/25/2013

    " This was am ok read. But seriously how many times can one man make the same mistake and then be unforgiving when someone falters the same as he did. Curtis Black's should have progressed further than it has by this point! "

    " Someone recommended this book to me and I am still trying to wrap my brain around the contents of this book as it seems to be soap-opera type fodder. I was looking for more of an uplifting and inspirational read. "

    " This is generous at 1 star. This book doesn't know what it wants to be; religious fiction, mystery, marriage counseling, I don't know. But it definitely did not send me anywhere I wanted to go. Sorry. "
