Just when you think things have calmed down at Sweetwater Powerhouse of God, things get worse. While Reverend Goodlove is giving an electrifying sermon, he passes out on the pulpit and goes into a coma. With their leadership in question due to the Reverend's illness, the church becomes a modern version of Sodom and Gomorrah. First Lady Theola thinks she has a free pass to do anything and anyone she wants. Soon she realizes that the grass is not always greener on the other side. Goodlove's oldest son, Damien, is trying to prolong his divorce ever since he has found out that his not-so-soon to be ex-wife Michelle just might become a millionaire. Now, if you read Holy Hustler (the first book), you know that Michelle was in a heap of trouble. If Damien does not watch his back, Michelle might be more determined to follow through this time around. With all of this is going on, Reginald is trying to figure out a way to come back home. And last but not least, Barry thinks that he now has a drama-free life since Sissy is gone. Well, he thinks she's gone, but soon he'll realize that she never left. With Reverend Goodlove in the hospital fighting for his life, there's still some hustlin' going on in Sweetwater, but who's committing the biggest sin?

Although not as great as its predecessor, Sweetwater Sinners by P. L. Wilson was still a good read. Sweetwater Sinners starts off as a slow read. I thought the book would leave off right where Holy Hustler ended, but it did not. You will have to continue reading to get to how both books tie into one another. After a few chapters, the book does pick up, and you're instantly intrigued to find out what's going to happen next with each character. The author does a good job with keeping you interested with the drama that goes on. If you get through the slow start and continue to read, Sweetwater Sinners becomes a book you don't want to put down. I do recommend you read Holy Hustler first so that you'll know a little background on each character.

I read "Holy Hustler" for the first time yesterday, and while it was good, "Sweetwater Sinners was so much more entertaining. Sweetwater Sinners is also a little better written than "Holy Hustlers" in my opinion. I believe it is usually difficult for sequels to compete with the originals, but in this case (perhaps because I read "Sweetwater Sinners" before reading "Holy Husler") the sequel earns 5 stars plus!
