Overview

Two church-ladies-turned-sleuths are sure to raise more than a little hell when they decide to make crime-solving miracles in this hilarious new novel. . .

They've been laid off, they're broke, and their faith is really being tried. But dedicated Mount Kneel Down Baptist Church members Patience Kash and Joy Karry figure now is the perfect time to pursue their other true calling--becoming private detectives. And if that means putting up with their thug-wannabe cousin Porky's delusions while hilariously interfering with their famous detective godson Percy's investigations, it's still a heaven-sent opportunity to hear all the town dirt and find customers. . .

When a thief steals the prized family Bible right out from under Porky's nose and church funds are missing on Patience's watch, these sisters-in-God find themselves sleuthing out the strangest family and church secrets--and up against someone more than ready to send them to their heavenly reward. Now, they'll need their most inspired hunches, their not-real-fierce dog Felony, and their license-to-missionary to uncover the truth and crack this holy case. . .

"Walker shines a little light on a wacky family reunion with her usual inspirational, knee-slapping style." --Publishers Weekly on Don't Blame the Devil

"Deeply entertaining. . .a rip-roaringly comical read." --The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers on Mother Eternal Ann Everlastin's Dead

"A comic novel about mistakes and second chances." --Library Journal on Don't Blame the Devil

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This lighthearted comedic novel from Walker centers around two unemployed cousins, Joy and Patience, who are also restless members of Mount Kneel Down Baptist Church. Their sass and goofy antics extend not just to their dog, Felony, but to a cast of otherworldly characters who are up to no good, as the title suggests. The plot is hard to follow in part because the narrative is cluttered with characters. Walker’s language is also riddled with clichés and banal descriptions. Much of what the characters say and do is reminiscent of sitcoms and gospel plays, but readers may still find a few chuckles. After all, the names of the characters, like Prophet Long Jevity, seem made for laughs. There are, however, far more recycled turns of phrase and outlandish people in the book than there are laughs; the title is the best description for the book’s overall effect. (Nov.)

    The First Lady of Gospel Comedy and Fiction is back with anoth


    The First Lady of Gospel Comedy and Fiction is back with another installment of the hilarious Sister Betty Series. Faith. Crazy characters. Comedy. These are all a combination for a book that will not only warm your heart but will set your book shelf on fire. G'Orge writes with such clarity and humor that even that novel reader will instantly fall in love. With good humor, and enjoyable characters this series is one that I will never forget.

    Holy Mayhem is about family values, loving ones church and solving cases. This was an interesting book with colorful characters. The author does a wonderful job creating relatable characters that will remind readers of their own family members. Pat G'Orge is one writer that will be remembered forever for warming our hearts and delivering a classic tale from the heart.

    Rolling On The Floor Funny

    The character's names will have you laughing and giggling all through this book. What a sense of humor Pat G'Orge-Walker has.
    We meet the Godmother's Joy and Patience, and their Godson Percy...that they refer to as Little P. He is a Police Detective who places cases notes in the treasured Grandmamma's Truth's Bible.
    If you can get through this book without rolling on the floor laughing you are doing well.
    These treasured Godmother's have a dog named Felony...yes! Also some things and people are not how they appear.
    If you want a really funny enjoyable read this one is for you. Don't miss this hard to put down book!

    I received this book from Tywebbin Virtual Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
