Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Capri, Lexi, Jermane, Angel, and Jewel are back with more mayhem and madness, and they are still trying to keep the faith!

Lexi has run off and eloped, cheating Jewel out of planning Lexi's wedding and shining the spotlight on Jewel's new event planning business. In the meantime, Jewel is delighted that her guy Kevin, a UPS delivery man, is moving on up into management.

Angel and her boyfriend, Octavio, have joined a new church and are trying to deal with their interracial relationship-but will differences in their faith draw them closer or pull them apart?

Jermane and her husband, Rex, are still together and thinking up new ways to keep their marriage fresh and hot despite Rex's workaholism and his wandering eye.

Lexi and Capri are getting ready to open their law firm, Reynolds and Stanton. Will their friendship survive their new business partnership?

Just when they think that everything has fallen into place, these five friends are forced to trust God as they find themselves in unexpected situations and facing new challenges. The Sunday Brunch Diaries explores what happens when your prayers are answered but you wind up getting a whole lot more than you bargained for.

Review:

"Channeling Tyler Perry's tragicomic sensibility (there is even a Madea figure), Jarrett delivers the goods in this light, entertaining follow-up to Sunday Brunch. Five women, all lawyers and longtime friends, live the good life — both materially and spiritually — in Houston. Capri is an NBA wife who isn't thrilled with the limelight; Lexi is a newlywed; Jewel is dealing with 'baby mama drama'; Angel has just begun attending Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church; and Jermane struggles to help her husband deal with a professional and personal crisis. While tragic circumstances ensue, Jarrett keeps the humor coming and always emphasizes God's power to redeem even the worst situations. Jarrett definitely does not disappoint readers who enjoy escaping into a world of beautiful people who wear designer clothes, eat at fashionable restaurants and live in luxury homes. While this novel is arguably by, for and about black women, a much wider audience is sure to delight in getting to know this fun group of Christian characters. (Sept. 9)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
