Description

Church first ladies Jasmine Cox, Larson Bush, and Rachel Jackson Adams are back and battling it out again--this time on reality TV--in the latest collaboration between national bestselling and award-winning authors Victoria Christopher Murray and ReShonda Tate Billingsley.

Jasmine Cox, Larson Bush, and Rachel Jackson Adams have been through a lot together--from fighting for their husbands to become the head of the American Baptist Coalition to getting mixed up in a terrible murder. Now the frenemies have found themselves the stars of First Ladies, a much anticipated new reality television show.

Jasmine balks at the idea of airing her dirty laundry on national TV, but Rachel sees it as the perfect opportunity to take her brand to the next level. And if Rachel is in, so is Jasmine. All the cast members are women of God--how much drama can there be?

Rachel and Jasmine know their own pasts are murky, but they'll seem like choir girls when the secrets and sins of the others come to light. The two will once again have to form an unholy alliance to go up against these so-called Godly women who see the show as their chance to take them down--at any cost.

Reviews

"The scandalous characters unite again in Fortune & Fame, Murray and Billinglsey's third and best collaboration. This time brazen Jasmine and Rachel, who has zero shame, have been cast on First Ladies, a reality TV show that builds one's brand and threatens to break another's marriage. Sorry, buttered popcorn is not included."--Essence magazine
"Priceless trash talk marks this story about betrayal, greed and stepping on anyone in your way. Best supporting character goes to Mae Frances, who nails all her scenes as a muse for Jasmine. A great choice for folks who spend Sunday mornings in the front pew."--Library Journal, on Fortune & Fame
