He's Back. . .Reverend Curtis Black, that is - Coming May 7, 2013 - "A HOUSE DIVIDED" by Kimberla Lawson Roby

Some people talk about "the Kennedy Curse," well, if I believed in voodoo, I would swear someone has a spell on the Black family because just when it seems like it's smooth sailing - trouble comes knocking.

Long before, "Scandal," and Olivia Pope, there was Curtis Black and Charlotte Black.  The Reverend and First Lady Black don't even have to look for problems, they just seem to find them.  Kind of like most families, huh?  

Except this family is mega-rich, mega-famous and mega-mixed up.

This is Ms. Lawson Roby's 10th book in the "Curtis Black" series.  

Honestly, when I received the review copy in the mail, I thought, "there's no way there can be any more secrets in that family."  I was wrong.

I always finish Kimberla's books thinking, "What will she do to top that?"  And somehow she manages to keep the reader interested - all these best sellers later.

May 7, 2013 A Reverend Curtis Black Novel

"Life is close to perfect for the Reverend Curtis Black and his wife, Charlotte--except their son Matthew and his girlfriend, Racquel, are about to become parents at the tender age of eighteen. Even though Curtis and Charlotte wish Matthew could focus on Harvard instead of fatherhood, they are determined to welcome their new grandson with open arms. But for Charlotte, welcoming her future in-laws is another story. Try as she might, Charlotte can't stand Racquel's mother, Vanessa--and the feeling appears to be mutual.

When the tension between Charlotte and Vanessa finally erupts, the stress sends an already-
fragile Racquel into early labor. Everyone is quick to blame Charlotte, including Matthew and Curtis. That her own husband would side with someone else infuriates Charlotte and strains the relationship they've only recently been able to repair. Her one ally is Racquel's father, but that brings problems of its own."

I cannot wait to read!!!! Kimberla Roby is just such a good writer!!!!! Once I start reading one of her novels, I can't put it down until I've almost gottent to the end and then I start reading slow - to make the enjoyment last longer. She is one talented writer!!!!!! In addition, if you meet her at one of her book signings, you can immediately feel her good spirit. She is so humble and approachable. She is blessed with God-given writing ability. The girl can tell a story!

Forget Harry Potter! Kimberla Roby really helped me return to reading fiction! The first book I read was "The Best of Everything." It was so good, I ran to the library to check out the previous books in that series! Looking forward to reading the next one!!
