Say Amen, Again

ReShonda Tate Billingsley. S&S/Gallery, $14 trade paper (288p) ISBN 978-1-4165-7806-2
Rachel Adams may have committed a few sins in earlier books in the series (Everybody Say Amen), but she never imagined her husband, Pastor Lester Adams, would be the one to land their family and their Houston church in a scandal. How can she forgive him for getting another woman pregnant, and at the same time as Rachel? Worse, his cast-off mistress, Mary, is determined to reclaim him at any cost, even if it means embarrassing Lester and Rachel in front of their congregation. Despite Lester's repentance, hotheaded Rachel risks destroying her marriage as she struggles with whether to forgive her husband, especially after the babies are born. Then Mary's sordid past catches up with her and she desperately needs Rachel's help. With an innocent baby's future hanging in the balance, Rachel must reconcile what she believes about God's will with what her emotions demand. Billingsley writes a fast-paced story filled with vivid characters, interweaving a heartfelt subplot as Rachel's brother struggles with conflicts between his beliefs and his gay identity. (July)
