New York Times bestselling author Carl Weber takes readers back to church–where preaching isn’t always enough…
Bishop T.K. Wilson has done all he can to make First Jamaica Ministries a success. But with his last choir director getting caught in a scandal, attendance and cash flow are down. To fill the pews and collection plates, Bishop is counting on a new choir director, the charismatic Aaron Mackie, to revive the church.
Aaron has been waiting his entire life for the opportunity to prove he has what it takes to be a big-time choir director. But his ways around women, past and present, could cost him more than his job. Soon, the Bishop is dealing with in-fighting, jealousies, and personal vendettas. But a final piece of the puzzle has yet to be revealed: Someone has been robbing the church blind. Someone whose connection to the Bishop is far too close for comfort…
It’s been I don’t know how long since I’ve started reading Carl Weber’s books and I still can’t get enough. Although I know exactly what to expect from them, I am never disappointed and am always left wanting more!
In The Choir Director, Weber gives us total drama and total intrigue. You will get caught up and invested in these characters lives while trying to puzzle out the mysteries surrounding them. Although I pretty much guessed early on who the main culprit was, I was interested to know and understand their motives for being a snake.
I love that we get to revisit with characters from previous books, while being introduced to new characters with their own issues and drama. Weber is excellent at weaving a tale and getting the reader completely caught up in his characters’ messy, messy lives! I loved getting to know Aaron Mackie, and watching him actually progress and grow up during the course of this book. I also loved being reacquainted with older characters and getting insight into past events that have come full circle to bite the Bishop and his wife in the ass.
Overall, this book is full of craziness and drama and I loved every single second of it. Weber continues to weave his magic and I’m looking forward to the continuation of this story with The Choir Director 2.
