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.

Format: Paperback
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!

A complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher for the purpose of this review.

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.

Format: Paperback
Jasmine Larson, as she is called by her longtime frenemy Mae Frances, tried to stay on the straight and narrow path, but it's hard to do that in her Jimmy Choos. Rachel Adams doesn't have a restrained bone in her body, but is still not as flexible as her new nemesis whose stripper, man-stealing past she is happy to expose. Divas in their own right, both women have their eyes on what they consider to be their husband's prize and are willing to do whatever it takes to be the next first lady of the world.

Victoria Christopher Murray and ReShonda Tate Billingsley make the dreams of their fans come true with SINNERS AND SAINTS. In true church-drama fashion they spin a tale that makes reality television look like Sunday school. The plot offers twists, bumps and turns fans with an appetite for stories about Jasmine and Rachel will eat up. Entertainment is the moral of this story as it offers readers a jam-packed, drama-filled literary ride sure to satisfy everyone who has enjoyed stories about Rachel Adams and Lady Jasmine in the past.
