CoCo, Nita, and Audra are the best of friends that all yearn for the love of a good man. CoCo suffers the physical abuse of her boyfriend Sonny, but when he causes her to miscarry her baby, she walks away from him. Single mother Tia is looking for a strong man to be a father figure to her son, Andrew, all the while she’s being chastised by her neighbor and babysitter, Ms. Bea. And the cunning Nita is tired of scouting for Mr. Right in the clubs. These three decide to embark on a crusade for their ‘husbands’ in church with the Holy Rollers.

Will these three friends find their ‘Samson’ within the church realm, or will they discover the battle within the sanctuary proves to be as treacherous as the battles in the world? Will the Lord turn their initial plight into something worthy and pleasing in HIS sight, or will Satan continue to encourage them to continue their unholy fa├žade? Will a violent Sonny allow CoCo to walk away, or will he change his abusive ways to win her back? Ms. Bea’s words of wisdom are many and with such conviction, can these three headstrong divas prove her wrong?

Reshonda Tate Billingsley pens another exciting read with plausible and cleverly orchestrated scenes. The characters are true to life and make you put a face to each character within the church. I applaud her for exhibiting the behavior of many ‘church women’ and a widespread dilemma with the church and with the members. Holy Rollers was an enjoyable read, had consistent character development, and the dialogue was credible as well as engaging. Great job Ms. Billingsley!
