Mocha Girl Teresa’s review of Be Careful What You Pray For:

I enjoyed reading this book but it did not thrill me as much as the rest of the series. The twist in the book was unsuspected but still yet it did not wow me. I love this author’s previous work and I am looking forward to the new Rev Curtis Black installment, which I just received.

Mocha Girl Joy’s review of Be Careful What You Pray For:

This particular book started off a bit slow, but as always She packs a punch! I love her work.

Mocha Girl Stephanie’s review of Be Careful What You Pray For:

So far I have to say this book is very good. I cant stand the fact that the pastor is a womanizer. I cant wait to find out how this one ends.

This was a good book. I think the ending left me hanging a little bit but over all it was good. I would really hate to think that a pastor would be that nasty but hey Kimberla opens up some crazy doors with this one lol.

Mocha Girl Rhonda at OEBooks Book Blog review of The Strawberry Letter:

Thinking about cutting out of a relationship and need a pep rally or a cheerleader? Read the Strawberry Letter! Also be ready for a boost as the social butterfly speaks on supporting one another and learning new things. She did catch me off guard with an ‘ah ha’ moment; responding to a young woman who needed help with her mother who’d been turning out every party. ‘Record the mom,’ – I liked that advice. Sounded effective. And the section, ‘Do You Like What You See’, also pretty good. And on her mother’s quote in the labor room, ‘Where’s your faith,’ – oh man, now that was empowering!

The majority of the book dispenses self-help advice, which in short, if people cannot be honest with each other, and sometimes make these insensitive comments, and fight about it, but be ready to disagree like adults and still remain friends, then there will be no friendship, and therefore no real relationship. Just all superficial stuff, no matter how gorgeous, intelligent, ‘good in bed’, or lettered you are. Just like on the job, you’ve got to put in the time dealing with just these types of comments (letters), and people, to build rock solid relationships.

Stay beautiful Shirley!  You look fabulous!

Mocha Girl Rochelle from our Tempe, AZ. chapter review of The Strawberry Letter:     

Hey there finished reading The Strawberry Letter, gave it a rating of so, so.  At first the book was a little hard for me to get reading, I was not making the connection as I began to keep reading and discussing it with my co-worker I discovered WOW this is basically a self-help book, a book of letters and responses (lol)…As I continued to read Chapter 18 The Ties That Bind spoke to me as I began to read this chapter, it gripped my heart as a mother making a decision at the moment that would take us to a place of being Torn on making a life changing decision. I whole heartily agree with the Strawberry Tip: Love & Communication are the Keys to making any Family Work.
