    No Good...

    I have read all of Carl's books, and loved them all. Unfortunately I cannot say the same about this one.I'm sorry but this book just didn't cut it for me. The begining was good, and the drama was on point. How ever the middle of the book did begin to drag, and the ending was rushed. I wasn't expecting a happy ending for everyone, but this ending was sad, dark, and just threw me off. I wasn't happy for any of the characters, just happy it was over...

    A great escape!!

    Excellant read!! At first I though it was going to be too ghetto. I found that I loved the characters were college educated with careers. This book was hard to put down. It had lots of twist and turns. Not predictable at all. Lots of drama. Im glad it was ficton so it was okay that everyone did not live happily ever after. It was an original ending and very unexpected. This was my first CW novel and definately not my last.

    Up to No Good

    First I would like to say that I love this book also. It's a good, touching hell of a book,and if readers don't get anything out of it, then it's a shame. The book is good and as you read it you'll be into it like I was. It's like sitting back on a couch, relaxing and watching tv. GOOOD Book

    This book was really just an okay read, nothing to get excited about....

    I am a huge Carl Weber fan, so I can honestly say this book was just okay. It wasn't anything to brag about but it wasn't entirely a dud either. This would be a good book for a novice reader; however a seasoned reader wouldn't be impressed. It keeps your focus and bores you at the same time.

    Kept My Attention!

    From page one, I was captivated. I thought Carl Webber did an excellent job of making the characters come to life, especially the overly spoiled daughter! Was a little disappointed in the end, but it was still a good read!

    A Review By Somebody That Doesn't Write Reviews

    I don't write reviews. But, I felt I had to write a review about this one. I am a fan of anybody that write in the first person and make the story believeable. Weber did his job and he did it well. Don't get me wrong there were time when I was like that was predictable but overall, I was impressed. This book is filled with enough twist and turns that you will keep turning pages.

    Review:

    "Up to No Good" by Carl Weber...

    "There is always a man around the corner. Church trustee James Black should know--he's usually that man, carrying on adulterous affairs and sleeping with one conquest after another. But when he suddenly finds himself truly in love, the other women in his church have a thing or two to say about it--including his daughter, Jamie.
    Jamie has every intention of dismantling the relationship--until she discovers a mystery woman has been secretly calling her lover, Louis. Meanwhile, James's son, Darnel, spirals out of control after he catches his fiancée cheating. James knows he's to blame for the turmoil that surrounds him and his loved ones. Now he'll have to find a way to bring peace to their lives. But he can only do it by facing some hard truths about himself and changing his scandalous ways."


    What I liked from the novel.....

    This was another one of this author good reads. "Up to No Good" was definitely one of this author types of drama novels that will keep you on the edge of your seat with a lot of drama and suspense and leave you wondering what will come next. You will be left saying 'what a story' that was a little predictable but yet not disappointing in any way with some characters that were simply off the chart. Some of the characters were greatly flawed while a few others were simply well developed, engaging and oh so real to give the readers a simply good character development with a excellent subplots along with a unforgettable story line. The ending will definitely leave thinking just how far would you go to help out a blood relative. That ending left me in awe...because even though I know that person had a lots of demons and definitely needed help....I never thought that would happen. I am still shaking my head about that ending. All that is left to say is wow what a interesting intensed read that still I have thoughts about long after this read. If you are looking for drama with a lots of pain and craziness you have come to the right place for "Up to No Good" will give it all to you and more!

    If you follow any of Carl Weber's church series you have heard of Deacon James Black, and you would know he is a mess and a half.  He is just the same in this book, but it goes deeper into his personal life.  He has two children and they too are going through their individual problem.  However just like their father they have some deep rooted issues of their own.  The book was a page turner and I didn't stop until I was finished.  I had to know what was going to happen.  I will not spoil it for those who have not read it yet, but I will say there is rage, sex, violence, scandal, and a lot of mystery.  Hope you Enjoy.  -- Norman LaVelle

    2 of the 3 main characters disgust me.

    The beginning was promising, the middle was constant drama (Darnel) but the ending was not what I would have hope for. James is cool cause you get what see and those types are always easy to deal with. Jamie's obsession with her father is disgusting and she had me worrying about what type of relationship she wanted with her father. I can appreciate Darnel wanting to bein a faithful relationship but that takes 2 people wanting the same yhing and he just didn't get that! I love me some carl weber but this was not his best work.
