TEAM JASMINE or TEAM RACHEL?

Bestselling and award-winning novelists Victoria Christopher Murray and ReShonda Tate Billingsley bring their favorite heroines together in a novel that will delight their legions of fans.

Jasmine Larson Bush and Rachel Jackson Adams are not your typical first ladies. But they’ve overcome their scandalous and drama-filled pasts to stand firmly by their husbands’ sides.

When a coveted position opens up—president of the American Baptist Coalition—both women think their husbands are perfect for the job. And winning the position may require both women to get down and dirty and revert to their old tricks. Just when Jasmine and Rachel think they’re going to have to fight to the finish, the current first lady of the coalition steps in . . . a woman bigger, badder, and more devious than either of them.

Double the fun with a message of faith, Sinners & Saints will delight readers with two of their favorite characters from two of their favorite authors.

    Really intriguing!

    This book was selected for my Book Club. The storyline was interesting and held my attention. This was a real church brawl with the ladies going to all lenghts. It was hard to determine who the Saints were! I would recommend this book.

    The drama and claws come out in this book! Reowr. Both women want their husbands to be president of the Association, and will do anything to win. But Rachel and Jasmine are so focused on each other, they don't notice the other snakes in the grass.

    This was a good fast read. There is more than enough drama. The characters are real and over the top. I see a sequel in its future. There are surprises too. Whether you prefer Jasmine or Rachel, you won't be disappointed both have a host of tricks up their sleeves. Nothing deep here just a mindless quick drama filled fun read. I like both authors and they seamlessly concocted a novel that feels written by one person.

    I felt really let down in regards to what I paid for the book and the level of determination I had to obtain to get through it. I love Victoria Christopher Murray! And, I have purchased several paperback books of hers, which are not cheap but I always felt like the entertainment was worth it- until now. Maybe I tried to read it at the wrong time or something, I don't know?

    Collaboration - well done!

    Sinners and Saints by Victoria Christopher Murry and ReShonda Tate Billingsley is a page turner from the beginning to the end. It is a great collaboration between the two writers who brings together two feisty characters that readers know and love.
    Sinners and Saints bring Rachel Jackson Adams and Jasmine Cox Larson Bush together in interesting ways and at times comedic ways. From the very first dirty trick to the last the reader will be caught up in the drama.
    Rachel and Jasmine’s husbands Lester and Hosea respectively are both seeking election for the presidency of the American Baptist Coalition. They believe that if it is God’s will they will get elected. Unfortunately neither Rachel nor Jasmine is comfortable leaving it up to God. Rachel believes that faith without works is dead and she plans to work hard to get Lester elected. Hosea walks in his faith where as Jasmine prefers to work in her faith. Neither lady is above dirty tricks to get what they want.
    There are several other characters in the book who will keep you guessing about their intentions. How involved is Mae Francis? What does Rev. Griffiths expect to gain from the election? Why does Cecilia King wield so much power? Who will become the next president of the American Baptist Coalition? Whose team are you on Team Rachel or Team Jasmine?
    I loved this book. Victoria Christopher Murry and Reshonda Tate Billingsley truly out did themselves. I eagerly anticipate the next installment in the Jasmine/Rachel saga.

    Let the Best First Lady Win

    Pastor Hosea Bush and Pastor Lester Adams have been selected to run for president of the American Baptist Coalition. Pastor Bush represents the Northern region while Pastor Adams represents the South. Either of these great men of God would be able to serve the coalition with honor and in a respectable and Godly manner. But, wait a minute, who are their wives?

    Enter Jasmine Bush and Rachel Adams and here comes the drama!

    Jasmine is already rethinking her promise to God that she has kept for two years she feels her husband Pastor Bush needs her help to get this position. Jasmine’s husband, Hosea, believes that if it’s God’s will he will get the position. Jasmine, on the other hand, feels her husband needs her help to get this position and puts the wheels in motion to make it so.

    Rachel Adams is no better. Though warned by her husband not to get involved, she too believes her husband, Lester, will benefit from her assistance in securing his position.

    Both ladies are ready to take the gloves off and get down and dirty, forgetting the skeletons in each of their own closets.

    “Sinners & Saints” was a VERY good book and easy read. This book has it all. I highly recommend it. There will be a book two and I’m looking forward to it.

    Must Read Book

    Let me first begin by saying that this book was written by 2 of my favorite writers and before you read this you must go back and read all of the books by Victoria and Reshonda so that you're up on both Jasmine and Rachel. I couldn't believe the 2 of them and neither character disappointed me though I was quite surprised by ending and must say that Mrs. Larson-Bush has definitely come a long way from "Temptation".... I read this book in one day (the same day it was released and now I believe I'm going through withdrawals)... To both writers keep up the good work and this collaboration thing really worked well...Wouldn't it be something for Jasmine and Rachel to become friends....Nawwwwww... :o)
