Format: Paperback
Both Jasmine Cox Larson Bush and Rachel Jackson Adams' husbands are pastors. Both of their husbands are in the running to be nominated as pastor of the American Baptist Coalition - which would make one of those ladies one of the most important Christian "First Ladies" in America. And each of the woman wants their husbands to win - not because he's the best pastor for the job, but because she is the best First Lady for the job. See the problem here? LOL

The antics are over-the-top crazy, but it's very interesting to see how this competition plays out. What was really excited me was that the authors took turns writing the chapters from their characters point-of-view. See, Murray wrote every other chapter from Jamine's perspective and Billingsley wrote the other chapters from Rachel's perspective. I just find it amazing that one would write a chapter, pass it along to the other, and then the other author would write the next part of the story. That is some serious artistry right there. And in order to make that work - which they did with this book - they had to really work together. It's apparent that they work well as a team.

The ending was surprising, too. I read the book in 24 hours because it was just that good. Having said that, I hope to never meet First Ladies like these two women - apparently you can take the woman out of the hood, but you can't take the hood out of the woman - no matter how long it's been since she's been there.

Good reading.

The head of the ABC is stepping down, and the competition is fierce! But, two candidates stand out in the crowd.

Pastor Hosea Bush, and Lady Jasmine Larson Bush, are the leaders of City of Lights Church.

Pastor Lester Adams and his wife Rachel Jackson Adams are the leaders of New Hope Baptist Church. Both men are Holy Ghost proud to be chosen to represent their region.

But these two saved women of God with their less than holy pasts, have decided that their husbands should become the new ABC president, by any means necessary!

These women underhandedly try to sabotage the other, to get the attention and favor of the current 1st lady.

But when one stunt is taken too far, and questions arise about certain supporters; who will drop out, who will win, or is there another candidate lurking in the wings? What lengths would you go to?

Come along on this scandalous side of Christianity, and ride this road to victory, and find out who really is a Saint or Sinner!

This was a great read, these characters really showed out; I laughed and got mad and enjoyed recognizing a certain pastor that was mentioned. It kept me interested til the end. You'll never know the lengths people will go for a taste of power!

Great job ladies, I look forward to your next collaboration!

Well...all I can say is Jasmine Bush and Rachel Adams are not your average First Ladies. They both have had shady pasts, and they've beaten the odds and have become better women for it. At least, that's what we thought. When the President of the American Baptist Coalition is retiring and both Rev. Lester Adams and Pastor Hosea Bush are nominated, Jasmine and Rachel decide they both deserve the prestigious title of First Lady of ABC. When both ladies think they have to fight dirty to win, they underestimate the current first lady of the coalition. She's a first lady that's bigger, badder, and has more tricks up her sleeve than both Jasmine and Rachel put together. So, who will come out on top?

Sinners & Saints is one of the best collaborations of authors I've ever seen. Both Reshonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray are two of the best authors. I've always enjoyed reading their novels, and that's because they never disappoint. In Sinners & Saints, they give you drama, laughter, and suspense. Also, if you have not read any novels about Rachel Adams and Jasmine Bush, you won't get lost with this one. Each author gives a brief summary of some of the mayhem that both first ladies have inflicted. You'll understand the viewpoint from both the main characters and their sub-characters. Sinners & Saints is an excellent read, and you won't be disappointed. The only decision you'll have to make is whether you're for Team Rachel or Team Jasmine.

Jasmine Larson Bush and Rachel Jackson Adams play to win. So when their husbands are both nominated for the presidency of the American Baptist Coalition, they'll stop at nothing to see them win. And though they're supposed to be women of God, there's nothing godly about their scheming and plotting. Sinners and Saints could have been aptly named "Christians Behaving Badly."

While the two ladies battle it out at convention, their husbands are oblivious to what's going on until it becomes all too obvious. That leads each man to question how badly he wants the position. If it's meant to be, it'll be, right? Not if Jasmine and Rachel have anything to do with it. And what happens if there's someone that wants the position more badly than Rachel or Jasmine? Having personally served on a regional level of a national organization and on the national nominating committee for that same organization, I can honestly say that Murray and Billingsley are definitely on point when it comes to the things people will do to make sure they, or the person they're supporting, wins. A convention has never been so exciting!

It's rare that two people can co-author a book so seamlessly, especially when they're bringing characters that they've each created independently together in one storyline. With alternating chapters, each author takes a turn presenting Jasmine's and Rachel's side of the story. I can honestly say I was team Jasmine, but only because I've read about the character previously in Sins of the Mother. Rachel gives almost as good as Jasmine, but not quite. I'd say that's only because Jasmine is older and has more years of experience at being conniving and cunning. I'm sure Rachel will be around giving others hell for years to come.
