A thought provoking tale

Reverend Curtis Black¿s daughter twenty-two years old Alicia Black Sullivan expects to be handed anything she wants on a gold platter. Her wealthy daddy always took care of the bills. Her spouse pastor Phillip Sullivan pleads with her to stop running up expenses they ...
Reverend Curtis Black¿s daughter twenty-two years old Alicia Black Sullivan expects to be handed anything she wants on a gold platter. Her wealthy daddy always took care of the bills. Her spouse pastor Phillip Sullivan pleads with her to stop running up expenses they cannot afford for purchases they do not need. However, Alicia ignores her husband¿s beseeching.

Alicia ignores him living her life as if she still was daddy¿s little girl. Phillip struggles to corral his wife, but her infidelities prove too much. He divorces her. Alicia learns a lesson from the end of her marriage; her second husband will be richer than daddy so he will not care about her spending habits.

Turning from Reverend Curtis (see SIN NO MORE, THE BEST KEPT SECRET, CASTING THE FIRST STONE and TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING) to the next generation, THE BEST OF EVERYTHING contain intriguing twists. This time Alicia is so self centered, Phillip realizes the zillion times he forgave her transgressions only lead her to repeat her negative egotistical behavior; thus recognizing he is no Job, he walks. The other message of redemption can only occur if the person truly in their soul means it to happen; God will know. Although fans of the series will struggle with Alicia¿s attitude, Kimberla Lawson Roby puts readers to the test: can they forgive such an unrepentant sinner whose only lesson learned from her marriage is to wed someone much wealthier?

I am a fan of Kimberly Lawson Roby however I did not love this book. The storyline is about Curtis Black's daughter Alicia who marries a man who makes less than she is used to having so she begans to hide money and cheat. The plot is very predictable and not a lot of twists and turns. I have read many books about the dear reverend Black that was much better in action. The overall message is good which is money does not buy happiness. There is a sequel out Be Careful what you Pray for. I am debating if I will purchase it to continue reading about Alicia. If you are a Kimberly fan then you should read it to keep up with the crazy Black's Family. If you are not then this is not the best book to start reading from here collection.

    Skip It!!

    The main character was empty. This book never lifted me away from reality. One of the worse books I've read. I didn't know it was a series of books...I won't be reading any of the others!

    Ridiculous

    This book has no substance to it. The plot was fine but was not fully developed. The book was written at a third grade leval.
