Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Her first marriage didn't work out, but that isn't going to stop Alicia Black, the privileged daughter of the charismatic Reverend Curtis Black, from getting what she wants.

Alicia can't believe her good fortune. God has heeded her prayers, blessing her with the perfect second husband, Pastor JT Valentine, a handsome, dynamic man of the cloth with his own large congregation, just like her father.

Unfortunately, Alicia doesn't understand how much like Curtis her new husband truly is. JT has been sneaking around town with other women--and he only married her to get close to her father's money and fame. But while Alicia is blinded by love, her dad certainly isn't. After all, it takes one to know one--and who better to see into the darkness of a sinner's heart than Curtis Black?

Only a miracle can save the day. But God acts in mysterious ways, and soon Alicia will have to face some very crucial and life-changing decisions. This time, she's got to be careful what she prays for. . . .

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-01-01)

In this sequel to The Best of Everything, Roby continues to focus on Alicia, the daughter of Rev. Curtis Black, who bounces back after a devastatingly humiliating divorce. Seemingly given a second chance at love, Alicia marries JT Valentine, a charismatic, handsome reverend who has patterned himself after every aspect of Curtis Black's life, literally. JT treats Alicia like a queen, lavishing her with expensive gifts and giving her a beautiful home, and Alicia can't believe her good fortune.

Finally, she has everything she has always dreamed of having, but is her life too perfect? Verdict Although Roby's characters show some growth in this latest addition to the Black family saga, the story is all too familiar and predictable. This novel will appeal to readers of romantic suspense and Christian fiction and Roby's die-hard fans.
