*Book of the Day*

Keeping with the 2021 theme of “Acknowledging Our Veteran Authors”, today’s book is from New York Times bestselling author @suzettaperkins.

Baby drama and political scandal don’t mix in this sequel to Suzetta Perkins’s Behind the Veil.

Margo Myles is getting ready to give birth to twins, but she isn’t sure who the father is—her soon to be ex-husband, Jefferson Myles, or her one-time fling, Malik Mason. Malik is running for a state senate seat and no one is going to take the sweet smell of victory from him.

Ivy Myles, Margo and Jefferson’s eldest daughter, is moving back home. She’s been estranged from her parents, but a new love calls her back—and her love is none other than Malik Mason. Malik intends to make Ivy his wife, but will she be a distraction on his way to the senate?

Scandal and politics always seem to make perfect bedfellows. And Malik Mason must decide which woman he loves more, mother or daughter, or risk ruining everything.

New Release: Yellow Wife by Sadeqa Johnson

Congratulations @sadeqajohnson!

Called “wholly engrossing” by New York Times bestselling author Kathleen Grissom, this harrowing story follows an enslaved woman forced to barter love and freedom while living in the most infamous slave jail in Virginia.

Born on a plantation in Charles City, Virginia, Pheby Delores Brown has lived a relatively sheltered life. Shielded by her mother’s position as the estate’s medicine woman and cherished by the Master’s sister, she is set apart from the others on the plantation, belonging to neither world.

She’d been promised freedom on her eighteenth birthday, but instead of the idyllic life she imagined with her true love, Essex Henry, Pheby is forced to leave the only home she has ever known. She unexpectedly finds herself thrust into the bowels of slavery at the infamous Devil’s Half Acre, a jail in Richmond, Virginia, where the enslaved are broken, tortured, and sold every day. There, Pheby is exposed not just to her Jailer’s cruelty but also to his contradictions. To survive, Pheby will have to outwit him, and she soon faces the ultimate sacrifice.

In God, Princeton, & My Pondered Thoughts: A Memoir of My Encounter with God at an Ivy, Jessica Stephens recounts what happens to her when love, grace, and power decide to visit her while a student at Princeton University. Stephens describes what influenced her decision to attend Princeton, the trials she endured, and the beautiful adventure that captivated her upon surrender. Providing an intimate narrative, Stephens shares how she learned to trust God more deeply in her encounters with demanding course loads, unexpected sickness, spiritual warfare, life-changing prophecies, and complicated relationships.This memoir details how experiencing God cannot be limited to church settings, scheduled devotionals, or certain geographical areas. Engaging and insightful, God, Princeton, & My Pondered Thoughts illustrates how we are all part of a story in which God relentlessly pursues us with a beautiful gentleness that can only be acknowledged through intentional reflection. Sometimes, it’s by reading another’s story that one realizes that luck, coincidence, and good timing are actually the fingerprints of a loving and all-powerful God.

Keeping with the 2021 theme of “Acknowledging Our Veteran Authors”, today’s book is from New York Times bestselling author @terrymcmillan01.

He was tall, dark as bittersweet chocolate, and impossibly gorgeous, with a woman-melting smile. She was pretty and independent, petite and not too skinny, just his type. Franklin Swift was a sometimes-employed construction worker, and a not-quite-divorced daddy of two. Zora Banks was a teacher, singer, songwriter. They met in a Brooklyn brownstone, and there could be no walking away…

In this funny, gritty urban love story, Franklin and Zora join the ranks of fiction’s most compelling couples, as they move from Scrabble to sex, from layoffs to the limits of faith and trust. Disappearing Acts is about the mystery of desire and the burdens of the past. It’s about respect, what it can and can’t survive. And it’s about the safe and secret places that only love can find.

Afi Tekple is a young seamstress in Ghana. She is smart; she is pretty; and she has been convinced by her mother to marry a man she does not know. Afi knows who he is, of course—Elikem is a wealthy businessman whose mother has chosen Afi in the hopes that she will distract him from his relationship with a woman his family claims is inappropriate. But Afi is not prepared for the shift her life takes when she is moved from her small hometown of Ho to live in Accra, Ghana’s gleaming capital, a place of wealth and sophistication where she has days of nothing to do but cook meals for a man who may or may not show up to eat them. She has agreed to this marriage in order to give her mother the financial security she desperately needs, and so she must see it through. Or maybe not?

His Only Wife is a witty, smart, and moving debut novel about a brave young woman traversing the minefield of modern life with its taboos and injustices, living in a world of men who want their wives to be beautiful, to be good cooks and mothers, to be women who respect their husbands and grant them forbearance. And in Afi, Peace Medie has created a delightfully spunky and relatable heroine who just may break all the rules.

Today’s book is relative to the things that we have witnessed this past week. It also happens to be by my brother from another mother @novelistblacctopp.

Tristen sighed heavily. He and his cousin Toby couldn’t have been more different. He was Ricky to Toby’s Dough Boy. He silently wished that he could be as strong and as vocal as Toby. Tristen Graham had worked his entire life toward achieving his academic goals. He’d studied hard and graduated from M.I.T. at the top of his class. At 22 years old he stepped into a high paying executive position at one of the most prestigious software companies in Texas. Now that he’s inside, racism, favoritism and a tight knit good old boy network threatens to derail all that Tristen has worked for, until he decides to fight back the only way he knows how……..with his brain.

BET called ‘Pretty Kings’ a must read!

The Pretty Kings became the most notorious drug lords in the United States. This is how their reign begins. Bambi and her sisters in law have it all. They are married to brothers of the highly respected Kennedy family, rich and hopelessly in love. As promised, the Kennedy Kings decide to get out of the drug game, after, a one hundred million dollar meeting with The Russians, whom they never met personally. First, the Kings have to return home from LA. But, while in a casino, something so devastating occurs, which their wives witness via video calling, that changes the wives lives forever. The next day, emotionally beaten, Bambi remembers the meeting with The Russians that is to take place on Saturday. Although grieving, she considers how life will be without her husband and penniless. Bambi tries to facilitate the meeting without their husbands but is unsuccessful. The Russians are expecting the Kennedy Kings only. Not wanting to miss and opportunity to take care of her family for the rest of her life, Bambi comes up with a plan. However, for this plan to be executed, the wives would have to take over their husbands identities. They must become the Kennedy Kings. If it works, they will continue to afford the lifestyle they are accustomed. If not, they might suffer a fate so brutal, death would be better.
