When we read about church folks, we expect drama. Lovely adds steamy, funny, sobering and surprising to the mix. The action, dialogue and well-crafted characters are so riveting that they’ll make your heart race in anticipation of each new scene. No stone is left unturned, no taboo is left untouched. Lovely is truly destined to become a favorite among phenomenal authors.
When 72-year-old Reverend O comes out of retirement to save a scandal-ridden church, he forgets one thing: his own secrets. His wife, Mama Max, is still fiery enough to confront the hussy whose eyes are set on him. In the meantime, Princess, their granddaughter, wrestles with feelings for her cheating, NBA star ex-boyfriend. Another mega-preacher, Stan Lee, is threatened by the secret behind his inability to love his wife in the biblical sense. When all hell breaks loose, it’s truly a hot mess. (DAFINA, Aug., 352 pp., $15.00)
