I am 1/2 way threw reading the whole book. This is the first time ive ever read an urban christian written book. I really enjoy the characters in the book. The main character has been left at the alter and now in search for love in all the wrong places, not taking notice of whats in front of her. Not rememebering to put God first and instead of seeking any man...just let go and allow the right man to come into her life. I didnt give it 5 stars because there are a few grammical errors which sometimes had me confused... but non the less i will look for more books of this nature.

Update :
Just finished the book while my boss was in a meeting....hehe I couldnt put the book down. A lot of things that where in the book touched me bc i've either experienced or seen my friends go through stuff like this.

Shana Burton's debut novel leaves me looking forward to her upcoming release. I truly enjoyed Vashti Hunter's story. Even though I found myself frustrated at her for the decisions she made, I couldn't stop reading to see how it would all turn out, LOL.

Some times we do go astray and try to find our own way. We make poor choices, but if we're lucky, we find our way back home to God's awaiting arms. Shana's story shows how even Christians can fall down, but it's not about the fall; it's how you rise above it all.

I truly enjoyed reading Suddenly Single and I highly recommend it!

Shana Burton had me on the edge of my chair as I turned page after page in SUDDENLY SINGLE. Talking when she should have been listening, Vashti Hunter missed what her fiancé was telling her the night prior to what should have been the perfect wedding day. But she did have the perfect last name for what was to follow.

After being left at the altar, she goes on the hunt in all the wrong places, hunting for all the wrong things, while trying to outwit the enemy. Low self-esteem and her desperation led her to the pastor, a down-low brother, a brother in jail, a younger brother, an older brother, and drama. Throughout SUDDENLY SINGLE, I talked and laughed out loud.

Several lessons were taught in this story, some of which were to listen when others are speaking, not to allow your sisterfriends to convince you to do something you are not comfortable with and to stand still and wait on the Lord. Looking for drama, tears, laughter and a few "oh hell no's"? Then, settle down with your favorite beverage, in your favorite chair and read the debut novel by Shana Burton, SUDDENLY SINGLE.

I picked up the book at the local library on 2/17/08 and completed it by 2/18/08. The book kept my attention especially the characters Vashti. I can relate to some of the characters she chose to masked her pain BUT the God we serve is so patient with us so He can present what is right for us.
I am looking forward to reading more material from Shana Burton and from Urban Christian books. It was a pleasure to read the book and left with a peace enlightment.

Format: Paperback
Author Shana Johnson Burton penned a novel that will have your head spinning through the life of Vashti Hunter, the main character in "Suddenly Single." Within the first 30 pages, Vashti found herself stood up at the church on her wedding day, a week later bent over a pastor's desk, and met a man who had baby mama drama to the max... and he wanted her to be his wife!

Turning to the internet only produced a down-low brother, and her resolve to give another brother a chance sent her to jail for something she did not do. These escapades took Vashti further and further away from the church as she tried to meet the deadline of a bet she had with her best friend, Monique: Find a man and marry him in a year.

"Suddenly Single" had my mouth hanging open no sooner than I began to read, and the choices Vashti made certainly did not line up with the young lady who was raised to respect herself. When so much happened so early in the book, I was sure it could not get any better than that, but this fast-paced book surprised me in that Vashti continued to make one foolish mistake after another. Throw in some new family teen-age rebellion, a twenty-year age gap and Monique's (Vashti's best friend) gold-digging, cheating drama, it was more than evident that Vashti needed to go sit down and get some sense or go back and pick up the morals she was raised with.

Although the read was fast-paced and filled with drama, the story was predictable and the main character seemingly too desperate to have a man. The book received a solid '3' because the grammar and structure were excellent. The storyline as a whole was not bad, but it woud have beenniceif the pacing was better and the incidents in the story more realistic.

Format: Paperback
All Vashti Hunter needed to do was listen, instead she was standing alone at the altar. Now distraught and very heartbroken, Vashti has to get back in the swing of things. On a serious mission to find a man she can love who is also ready to settle down, Vashti seems to find the most undesirable men out there.

Learn to wait on God! The moment Vashti does, could it be that the man she's needed was always by her side?

While reading SUDDENLY SINGLE I was able to laugh at some of the issues, but it also saddened me that Vashti was dripping in desperation. SUDDENLY SINGLE is a good book with some comical twists that I can easily recommend to others!
