Book: Too Little, Too Late
Author: Victoria Christopher Murray
Review: August 16, 2008
This novel, Too Little, Too Late written by Victoria Christopher Murray was a real page turner. A common thread that I found throughout the novel was that the Characters acted on the feeling of FEAR. Fear of being found out; Fear of their past catching up with them and Fear of loosing it all.
We know as Christians that the opposite of Fear is Faith. But, I have a question for you. Why is it that when “The going get rough”, we find ourselves not having as much faith as we should?
Remember God is always in control…even when we feel that he is taking too long or that He needs help from us.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Jasmine Larson Bush returns to her devious ways in this tale of two marriages — each threatened by lies and betrayal.
She took marriage vows to be honest and true, but Jasmine’s still hiding secrets to keep her husband, Minister Hosea Bush, by her side. When Hosea’s ex-fiancée, Natasia, suddenly appears in New York, Jasmine knows it’s not a coincidence. A former manstealer herself, Jasmine is very aware of Natasia’s motives — even if Hosea is not.
Complicating Jasmine’s life is the secret she’s kept from her baby’s daddy. Luckily for her, Brian Lewis has problems of his own. His wife, Alexis, is convinced he’s cheating on her — but Brian’s real betrayal is much worse. Revealing the truth to his wife could lead him back to the biggest mistake of his life…Jasmine.
Two marriages are in desperate jeopardy. Will Jasmine be able to scheme to save her own? Or will she have to choose between protecting her past and compromising her future? Even if Jasmine and Brian find the courage to stop the lies, it may be too little, too late….
Victoria Christopher Murray Bio:
Victoria Christopher Murray always knew she would become an author, even as she was taking an unlikely path to that destination. A native of Queens, Victoria first left New York to attend Hampton University where she majored in Communication Disorders. After graduating, Victoria attended New York University where she received her MBA.
Victoria spent ten years in Corporate America before she tested her entrepreneurial spirit. She opened a Financial Services Agency for Aegon, USA where she managed the number one division for nine consecutive years. However, Victoria never lost the dream to write and when the “bug” hit her again in 1997, she answered the call.
Victoria originally self published Temptation.
“I wanted to write a book as entertaining as any book on the market, put God in the middle, and have the book still be a page-turner. I wasn’t writing to any particular genre – I didn’t even know Christian fiction existed. I just wanted to write about people I knew and characters I could relate to.”
