Love and Lies (A Reverend Curtis Black Novel Book 4) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
At long last, the Reverend Curtis Black appears to be on the straight and narrow. The all-too-human preacher is a bestselling author now, and he and his wife, Charlotte, are raising two adorable children. But the ever-suspicious Charlotte doesn't trust that Curtis has put his womanizing past behind him. While he's on the road promoting his latest book, she knows that there needs to be just one extra-devoted fan in his flock for him to stray.
Charlotte is no angel herself, and she's been keeping plenty of secrets from Curtis while he's been away. Still, Charlotte believes with all her heart that things will be better once Curtis is home again, although she should be careful what she wishes for since love may not be enough to untangle the web of lies she and Curtis have woven for themselves. And in the end, she'll have some tough decisions to make if she wants to salvage her marriage.

Curtis is spending a lot more time away from home promoting his new book. He is giving her everything she hoped for, the money, house, cars, and prestige of being Mrs. Curtis Black. With all those material possessions Charlotte thought she would be the happiest woman on earth but to her surprise she was not. Their daughter Marissa has turned out to be a troubled child with signs of schizophrenia. Ironically enough Curtis nor Charlotte has any traits in their family but Charlottes ex does.
There are so many lies between the Blacks they are starting to lose count. Curtis has everyone believing he is a changed man but Charlotte knows her husband better than everyone else. He begins to get so deep into his lies that he has no choice but to confess everything to Charlotte. Really enjoyed this one!
Throughout there is drama, in true Black fashion. Tragedy strikes the Black household, Curtis admits to a whopper, and someone from the past shows up to cause even more trouble (if that's even possible)....
Although not the Curtis-focused novel that we have become accustomed to in this series, there is still plenty of action to keep Roby's fans properly engrossed. A good read.
Charlotte in reading this novel. She's dealing with her troubled daughter, raising two children alone at home. Her husband the reverend if off traveling all over the country promoting his book. So Charlotte can only hope and pray that he remains faithful to her. The good Reverend Curtis Black has been known to let his eyes wonder in the past, you know. Then there's Charlotte's friend, Janine, who's in denial while dealing with a verbally abusive boyfriend. Janine does not realize that the situation can ignite into something even more dangerous. Charlotte is made out to seem to be the most sane of them all in this book. And to think how Mrs. Rev. Curtis Black had been "straight trippin'(slang - meaning acting very crazy) in the last two books as the conniving character, Charlotte we all know and love. I must say, Kimberla Lawson Roby turns you around and makes your head spin wildly when you read Love and Lies Love and Lies
Thank you Kmberla, great job on all your novels!

I wish Kimberla Lawson Roby wouldn't wait until the end of the book for the climax, but I guess that's what makes you want to read the next installment
