    I wasn't crazy about the way it started, but I am glad I didn't give up on Reshonda & Victoria.  Thank you ladies for bringing Rachel, Jasmine, and, yes, even Mae Francis together.  Ready for the next drama to unfold.  Time to bring Cecilia King down!

    In the sequel to the awesome "Sinners and Saints", Rachel and Jasmine find themselves caught up in more drama. They both seem to finally get chopped down by their own scheming and scamming ways. If it had not been for Jasmine or Rachel doing xyz, then, mno would not have happened. Both first ladies show some amazing growth in this book though they are slow to show it and admit it to themselves. I laughed out loud so much when reading this book. Jasmine and her wise cracks about Rachel and vice versa kept me rolling! Throw Mae Frances in there to save the day (doesn't she know her stuff???) and you have a dream team for a great story. I loved reading about the newest drama in the first ladies' lives. They have to get themselves out of a murder scandal! When I tell you there are twists and turns through out the book that will keep you guessing....man oh man! I quite enjoyed the story. I can't wait to see what they get into next!

    I Also Recommend:

    The lines were drawn in the sand during the first collaboration

    The lines were drawn in the sand during the first collaboration between Reshonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray in 'Sinners and Saints'. No matter where your loyalties lie, you will thoroughly enjoy the witty repartee, colorful characters, and madcap antics of the First Ladies you love to root for.

    I loved several elements in this novel:

    1. At a certain point, I could not tell which writer was writing. It was that seamless. Both Billingsley and Murray know their characters and their "writing twin's" character's voice so well that it was never apparent who was writing.

    2. I actually felt empathy for Rachel Adams during her tribulations in the book. She is not someone who I would befriend in real life, but she was in one of those situations that you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy. And in this case, Jasmine felt the same way I did and acted accordingly.

    3. Oprah. (You gotta read it to know what I mean.)

    4. I closed the book and took away this blessing: Pray for your enemies. You never know what the outcome will be. God can turn anything around.

    Seamless Writing

    Storyline evolves around two charaacters written by two authors. Storyline is very seamless in that I could not distinguish each writer 's style. Fast read with sometimes comedic twists as a who dunn it murder mystery.

    Enjoyable as profile of women frenemies who are strongwilled and goal oriented. Definitely recommended.

    more from this reviewer

    The Odd Couple

    Rachel and Jasmine are back. This time they are playing for the same team. Say it ain’t so! And the stakes are much greater as someone has been murdered and all fingers point to Rachel. Working with each other instead of against each other changes things for this duo. Or does it?

    Two minds are better than one, so it was great to see authors ReShonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray team up again to bring readers their memorable characters and their crazy antics with “Friends & Foes.” The premise of the two being forced to work together because of the seriousness of the circumstances was a good one. However, how that premise played out left much to be desired. The book often felt stretched, forced, farfetched and too convenient. It lacked the substance of “Sinners & Saints” and was very predictable. Also, in the copy I read, beginning with chapter 23, the pages were out of order. It quickly became annoying for my reading flow to be hindered by constantly having to check for page numbers and flip back and forth. This went on for several chapters.

    On the plus side, I do like how well Billingsley and Murray worked together. Their voices blended so well and complimented each other; one could easily feel they were reading the book of just one author. I’d love to see them work together again for more escapades of Rachel and Jasmine but the next time with a little more depth and plausibility.

    The lines were drawn in the sand during the first collaboration between Reshonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray in 'Sinners and Saints' and the war continues in Friends & Foes, this spring. Frienemies Rachel Jackson Adams and Jasmine Larson Bush are back at it again. Rachel and Lester may be the first couple of the American Baptist Coalition, but Jasmine and Hosea are the face of the organization. Whether you’re team Jasmine or team Rachel you’re in for a fun rollercoaster. Quick witted punch lines, snappy jargon, fast paced, and simply delightful are only a few words to describe the latest installment of the series. Outrageous antics will have you laughing so hard people will want to know whats so funny. Grab your popcorn, put your kids to bed, and kiss your husband/boyfriend goodnight because you won’t be able to put this book down. With such hits as The Deal, the Dance, and the Devil (Murray) and The Devil is lie (Billingsley) respectively each author has paved a blazing career that continues to astound readers new and old. Murray and Billingsley are a dynamic duo that keeps readers entertained and informed on every page. Whether you’re just starting the series or pick it up in a book club selection you’re sure to love what unfolds before your eyes. Friends and Foes is a must read and a book that deserves its own place on your bookshelf respectively.

    Trying times and finding true sisterhood....I love both authors

    Trying times and finding true sisterhood....I love both authors and have now passed the collections and recommended them to fellow avid readers....Ladies this book was hilarious...as usual Mae Francis is a riot...bringing Jasmine and Rachel back at each other full circle and creating a bound between them shows real sisterhood. I can't wait to see what you two have in store for these two first ladies. Ever thought of throwing a little of that Crazy Reverend Black or his daughter in the mix that Kimberla Lawson Roby writes about? A persons faith is always tried but being able to overcome in true adversity shows true dedication. The depiction of that test was evident in this story. The devil is always busy and in our true human forms we also have our own motives of doing things until we figure out that sometimes the best reward is the one that we do not see. Ladies...Kudos anxiously awaiting your next books....

    The genius collaboration of Victoria and ReShonda continues with the modern day Lucy and Ethel. Jasmine and Rachel are back with their antics which are hilarious and not for the weak (or sensitive). True frienemies for life!

    Jasmine and Rachel make good frienemies. From the beginning to the end those two characters never failed me. It was good to see a friendship start between the two of them. 
    Jasel (Jasmine and Rachel) really made me wonder on how they were going to pull off the murder. My favorite part of the book is the argument between Jasmine and Rachel. I hope there will be  third book with Jasel.

    Exciting from beginning to end. I wanted to see Jasmine and Hose as first family though. I want to see Cecila GO DOWN DOWN DOWN. Mae Francis, I am still trying to figure her out.
