The story line was different and showed that Rachel and Jasmine could finally stop bickering. The book also remind us to watch how you treat people because you never know the connections that may bind you together. This was a decent and quick read!

Rachel Jackson Adams looks at her father as if he has lost his mind or worse about to have a stroke when he utters the words that could change her relationship with Jasmine Cox Larson Bush, someone she has been sworn frenemies with for some time now. Is the game changer in the story of these two women we have come to know from a heated church election, a murder cover-up, and a reality show. When the Reverend Simon Jackson finds and is looking through some old pictures from his past, he begins to have a moment about his teenage love and because she looks so much like Jasmine could he be her father? Rachel is going to debunk this theory because it is not possible that this could be true and this is the start of a journey for them both to get the answers they need to remove all doubt. Jasmine is not interested in what Rachel or Simon is saying about Simon being her father or attending a family reunion but when Rachel tells her there is an opportunity in Smackover, Arkansas to expand her charity Jacqueline’s Hope she jumps at it if only to have Rachel and Simon to leave her alone. I enjoyed this book as the authors always write a strong story that blends, so you don’t know who is writing what. There is a lot of back story about Simon that I enjoyed and the character Mae Frances who I want to have as a friend. She knows everybody who is anybody. There were some laugh out loud moments as usual, and this book for me is classic Billingsley and Murray. This is a well-crafted story that those who follow these two authors will enjoy and if this is your first time reading one of their work make sure you pick up the rest. As always we look forward to the next chapter in the lives of Rachel and Jasmine because they are fun to read about. There's always some drama yet dealing with real life issues that are relatable. Buy this book by ReShonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray! It will be a great book club read as there is much to discuss.
