Overview

Last Temptation by Michelle Stimpson was an excellent read. It is a story of temptation, love, lust, anger, and betrayal. Ms. Stimpson writes a fictional novel that is inspirational and full of hope. —Urban ReviewsSensible single mother Patricia "Peaches" Miller isn't about to follow in her mama's footsteps and become dependent on a man. But when she doesn't see eye to eye with the man she wants to marry, she knows that returning to a life of girls' nights out, retail therapy, and chocolate peanut clusters just won't do for her. Then Raphael, her son's father, steps back into the picture—and clearly his attraction to Peaches is stronger than ever. There's just one problem. Raphael has already pledged his heart to another woman. Peaches has been praying for a perfect family for a long time. Deep down she knows this can't be God's idea of an answer—but can you blame a girl for hoping? Now, as she battles with temptation, and with her faith, she's not sure which will win. . ."Michelle Stimpson will have you laughing, crying and relating to each of her vivid, vocal characters." —AAMBC Book Reviews"Michelle's characters always have their own vibrant personalities—this one will keep talking in your head long after the book is through!" —Kendra Norman-Bellamy

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Online minister Stimpson (Boaz Brown) harps on the conflict between marital interdependence and a woman's desire to stand on her own in this frustrating novel. Patricia "Peaches" Miller, a single Christian mother trying to live righteously, thinks everything is finally going according to God's plan. Then her fiancé, Quinn, gets a promotion that would require them to move away from her stable job; her son, Eric, is diagnosed with a learning disability; and her ex, Raphael, steps back into Eric's life. Despite urging from her loved ones, Peaches refuses to follow Quinn because she doesn't want to rely on a man for support or risk "looking stupid" in a brand-new city if the marriage fails. Some readers may identify with her trust issues, but most will roll their eyes and tell her to get over it. (Nov.)
