Book: Friends and Foe
Review: Saturday February 9, 2013
Bestselling and award-winning novelists ReShonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray bring their favorite heroines together in a novel that’s “double the fun…a match made in heaven” (Grace Magazine).
The drama is still fresh between Rachel Jackson Adams and Jasmine Larson Bush after each woman attempted to get her husband elected to the coveted position of President of the American Baptist Coalition. Now, everyone’s favorite First Ladies are going at it again.
When Rachel learns that Jasmine is going to be featured on a national television interview—thanks to the publicist she hired—the gloves are off and Rachel is set to do battle. But unexpectedly Rachel finds herself caught up in a much more ominous plot—one that involves murder—and must navigate these troubled waters with her least-expected ally, Jasmine.
Combining light-hearted action with a message of faith, Friends and Foe is a delightful read featuring two beloved characters from two exceptional authors.
