The Choir Director

Carl Weber, Kensington/Dafina, $24 (330p) ISBN 978-0-7582-3184-0
Juicy scandals rock Bishop T.K. Wilson's First Jamaica Ministries Church in Queens, New York City, in Weber's latest church series eyebrow-raiser. Monique, Bishop's first lady, and her fellow megachurch members are shocked when Jackie Robinson Moss, their choir director, is revealed to be gay and a seducer of many "straight" churchgoers, causing a drop in church membership and cash-flow problems. Wilson recruits (blackmails?) Aaron Mackie, a hot, gifted Virginia choir director, to set things right. Aaron attracts the wild and crazy Simone Wilcox, self-obsessed chairwoman of the board of trustees running Jamaica Ministries who's been pilfering from the church's accounts along with a duplicitous deacon. Aaron, however, is more interested in Tia Gregory, the church's much nicer secretary/rape counselor. After a church member commits suicide, secrets are exposed that could destroy the church and various relationships as Weber (Up to No Good) successfully explores the multiple megaproblems challenging this church family and scores again with a lively mix of church politics and bedroom follies.
