NEW REVIEW: Carl Weber - The Choir Director
Carl Weber - The Choir Director - Available Now! - 5 out of 5 books -
Scandal is still the topic at First Jamaica Ministries. Bishop T.K. Wilson has his hands full with the biggest scandal that has occurred at the church so far. Member start to leave the church when they find out that the choir director, Jackie Moss, is gay and has been trying to seduce the straight men in the church. With members leaving the church, this mean that the tithes and offering are starting to dwindle. If you've read any of the other novels about First Jamaica Ministries, you know that Bishop Wilson will do anything necessary to keep the cash flowing in the church. Bishop tries to get Aaron Mackie, one of the hottest choir directors on the East Coast. Aaron is from Virginia, has an angelic voice, and has the looks to match. But instead of Bishop Wilson enticing Aaron to join First Jamaica Ministries, he is pretty much blackmailing him. Aaron has a few secrets that he would like to keep in the dark; it's just too bad Bishop has found out about them. With things almost back in order, we find out that Aaron has a thing for the squeaky clean church secretary, Tia Gregory, but she is completely out of his league. However, someone else has their sights set on Aaron and that's Simone Wilcox, the chairwoman over the trustee board. But even Simone hasn't been the most trustworthy trustee for the church. There's so much drama going on at First Jamaica Ministries that it'll make your head spin. Every time I pick up one of Carl Weber's novels, it never disappoints. The Choir Director will have you laughing until tears are in your eyes. His stories about the scandals in First Jamaica Ministries will have you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you wondering if this is just his imagination, or if some of these things have actually occurred in a church. I have always enjoyed the way the author captivates his readers. The drama starts immediately, and it doesn't stop until the last page. I like the way each chapter gives you details about the characters and what is going on in their lives. Mr. Weber will keep you coming back for more and more.
