I couldn't put it down and didn't want too. I thoroughly enjoyed A HOT MESS. A very well written book. Fast paced and full of twist and turns. Wish the book didn't end. Can't wait for the sequel. Definitely recommend it. Loved it! I could not put it down! I read the entire book on long distance train ride!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel by James Guitard. After reading Delilah's Revenge, I was left with the need to want more thus sparking my interest to read A Hot Mess. Every chapter left with the need to read more. It was difficult to put the book down. I definitely recommend this book.

S. James Guitard has defined himself as a writer with his latest novel, A HOT MESS! Set in the fictional Mt. Carmel Baptist Church, The author takes on adultery, corruption, murder, and various other scandals with the finesse of a preacher while managing to provide enough hilarious comic relief to keep the reader interested from sentence to sentence. Guitard delivers his message without preaching to his readers, a feat that is often hard to accomplish. EKG Literary Magazine gives A HOT MESS 5 stars for its edge of your seat suspense, its hilarious dialogue, and its ultimate message: God will see you through any situation if only you believe!

OMG! I wish I could get a refund! This is the sequel to Delilah's Revenge. This author has great potential, however he needs to learn how to end a story. The story line went on and on and then nothing. It ended abruptly with no complete ending. Who ever gave this a glowing review was either sipping on something or got this one confused with another book! What a waste of time.
