This was the first book I read by this author. My my my was I impressed. I really enjoyed this read and was on edge the entire time reading it. That damn Charlotte was some piece of work. Not excepting that innocent child in the beginning was tearing me up being a father. But she finally came around, to bad it was too late. And what can I say about Rev Curtis Black, that man has all kinds of skeletons falling out of his closet and others trying to get in the closet. Definitely worth reading and I think I may attempt another in this series. – Norman LaVelle
The infamous Reverend Curtis Black’s sordid past is no secret, as his wife, Charlotte, is well aware. But when Curtis’ long-time mistress and mother of his illegitimate two-year-old, dies, he and Charlotte have no choice but to raise Curtina together. While the living, breathing reminder of her husband’s infidelity infuriates Charlotte, Curtis couldn’t be happier to finally have his whole family together. Despite her best efforts to keep her feelings hidden, Charlotte resents Curtina, taking her emotions out on the young girl. When confronted about her behavior Charlotte starts spending time away from home, all the while getting closer to her ex-boyfriend. Curtis appears to devote himself to his parish and the new church they’re building, but is he really focusing his attention on the female parishioners trying to lure him into bed? Suddenly Curtis and Charlotte find themselves slipping into dangerous territory, and not even Curtis’ seven-figure salary can prevent what is about to happen.
