Overview

Tina Brooks McKinney is back with the hotly anticipated sequel to All That Drama—with Leah and Sammie returning with ten times more problems and issues than before.

Leah and Sammie are two friends just trying to make it. They try their best to avoid drama, but somehow it alwys returns—and each other.

Leah thought she had found, and married, "The Good Man." Now, after a few years of marriage and three small children, her "good man" has eyes that are constantly roaming. Her bad turns to worse when she finds out that one of her children is autistic, and her house is soon to be foreclosed upon. In her lowest moment, she calls someone she knows will understand her plight—Sammie. Sammie hasn't changed much since Marie passed away—she's still looking for love in all the wrong places. Knee-deep in drama, Leah and Sammie finally realize that they can only count on themselves—and each other.

Brimming with juicy drama, betrayal, and family secrets, Lawd, Mo' Drama is funny and moving, heartbreaking and hopeful. Ultimately it offers a moving look at women's issues and the sisterhood that can also sustain us through life's toughest times.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

McKinney's mediocre sequel to All That Drama(2004) checks in on wily Sammie Davis and introduces her friend Leah Simmons just as their lives get problematic. Facing the foreclosure of her home and an adulterous husband who abandons her, Leah is forced to go back to work after an extended absence raising three children, one of whom is autistic. There for her is her friend Sammie, the protagonist of McKinney's first novel who, as before, has a knack for catching the wrong men (married, abusive). Sammie's embroiled in her own drama: as she suffers through another abusive relationship and grieves for her deceased friend, Marie, she learns she has a half-sister. Despite the histrionics-implied title, the story and writing are weak and the characters' plights halfheartedly constructed. A few creative sex scenes add some sizzle to a story that's mostly fizzle. (Apr.)

    Drama Filled

    In Lawd, Mo Drama readers will be entertained by the myriad of drama filled expeditions that are undertaken and the startling buried familial secrets that are exposed. Central to this episodic adventure are Leah and Sammie. Leah¿s husband, Kentee, left her and their three children, one of whom is battling with autism. Now, Leah is faced with the unexpected challenge of being a single parent/ Therefore, Leah builds a strong alliance with Sammie who is clinging desperately to Jessie, her abusive, married lover. I highly recommend this book to any reader who is curious enough to find out how Leah and Sammie change, grow and develop as they attempt to overcome the pain, burdens and obstacles barricading them. If your literary palate is craving a juicy dose of melodrama, then Lawd, Mo¿ Drama is the book for you.
