Book Review: A Sinful Calling (Reverend Curtis Black #13) by Kimberla Lawson Roby

Title: A Sinful Calling

Author: Kimberla Lawson Roby

Publish date: June 21, 2016

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing

Goodreads summary:
Two years ago, to everyone's surprise, Dillon Whitfield Black, the secret son of Reverend Curtis Black, boldly moved back home, married a woman named Raven, decided he was going to become a minister, and then founded a church right in the center of his living room. Today he's pastor of a 1,000-plus-member congregation, and new members are joining weekly. Sadly, behind closed doors, Dillon is far from being a saint. Dillon has become more like the man his father was thirty years ago-consumed with money, power, and lots of women. His family may have let bygones be bygones, but they continue to keep their distance...

My thoughts:

  A Sinful Calling is the 13th book in the Reverend Curtis Black series. It features a few of Reverend Black's kids: Dillon and Alicia. Dillon strives to get status, money and power by becoming a mega church preacher just like his dad. Unfortunately the apple doesn't fall far from the tree in other instances in his life, either. One of his obstacles is his wife Raven who wants a piece of the pie. Meanwhile his sister Alicia is having problems of her own with her marriage and mental issues. 
 Without giving too much away, this book was a gripping and entertaining novel with lots of family and church drama. It also deals with infidelity, mental illness and greed. I recommend this book to people that likes to read christian fiction and doesn't mind drama.

Review: Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling

Title: Why Not Me?

Author: Mindy Kaling

Published: September 15, 2015

Publisher: Crown Archetype

Goodreads summary

My Review:

I picked this up from the library as soon as I saw it. I love Mindy Kaling and her show The Mindy Project. I remember her last book being good but this one was even better. Mindy makes you feel like an old friend hanging out at a coffee shop just catching up.This book is made up of short essays about various topics that segued nicely into each other. She talks about boys, her career, confidence, friends, family and she gives away some Hollywood beauty secrets. This was a very entertaining and laugh out loud memoir. I hope she keeps them coming.

The Moment of Letting Go by J. A. Redmerski

Pub date: April 25, 2015

Summary from Goodreads:

Sienna Murphy never does anything without a plan. And so far her plans have been working. Right after college, she got a prestigious job and gained the stability she'd always craved-until work takes her to the sun-drenched shores of Oahu and places her in the path of sexy surfer Luke Everett. For the first time, she lets her heart take control. Drawn to his carefree charm, she makes a spontaneous and very un-Sienna-like decision to drop everything and stay in Hawaii for two more weeks.
