Rachel is 8 months pregnant and having nightmares after finding out that her husband's mistress, Mary is also pregnant and it could possibly be Lester's baby!!! As much as Rachel and Mary have fought over Lester, this seems like the straw that broke the camel's back. Rachel just can't take anymore, now it is a matter of keeping her mind right for herself and her children.

Mary can see that Rachel is not going to let her and Leste

Rachel Adams has worked hard to change her life and be right with God and as Zion Hil’s First Lady her work in the church speaks for itself. That is until Mary Richardson lures her husband, Pastor Lester Adams, into her bedroom. The crazy thing is that they are both pregnant and Lester may have two babies on his hands. Rachel and Mary take off the gloves and go toe to toe during this everybody in the church ain’t right installment of the Amen series.

Obviously, ReShonda has a gift from God with

The schemes we try to do can backlash back in our faces. Not everyone is easily convinced for one's conniving tactics, Rachel Adams hunches were proven correct. Jonathan stood up to his Aunt Minnie, moral lesson is that sometimes religious people will say what is an abomination and point out sin but we need to get the plank out of our own eye. Do you know if you are going to heaven? God is our Judge on Judgment Day, not man. So glad the author pointed this notion out. We quote the Holy Bible, we ...more

This was the first book that I received as a giveaway. I enjoyed the book. I read it on a recent flight and it held my interest. I didn't realize that it was part of a series until I was already into it. I will read the other books in the series. I would recommend it, especially for someone who wants a book that is written from a Christian perspective.

Good book

Rachel has really grown up spiritually. There is still some of the old her that has remained. Her brother is still struggling to find himself. There is always one relative in the family that likes to tell others how to live. I really enjoyed this book!

Say Amen, Again was an exceptional read! I really did'nt see the end coming. This book was so powerful. There is so much about forgiveness in this book. Rachel was remarkable in the end. Poor Mary never stood a chance, she had so many strikes against her. I enjoyed this family and how they stood up for each other. If you read this book, read them in order. There are 2 before this one.

I enjoyed the book. I laughed and got a little teary eyed as I continued to read. I soon knew what the first lady's intentions were and supported her choice. I did not like Minnie's character. I think the author put her in the story to get everyone's goat. This book showed the many sides of "Christian faith" and how different people handled their own faith. Different story lines tugged at the readers interest and made them think about how they would handle the situations given in the book.

Karma is a Mutha

As the First Lady of Zion Hill, Rachel has been fighting to remain rooted in the word, as well as violent free. Unfortunately, Mary, her husband's ex mistress, is making this a difficult task. At eight months pregnant, Rachel fears that she'll never be able to fully forgive Lester for cheating if she learns that the baby Mary is carrying is actually his. While she struggles to be strong, Mary is pulling out the heavy artillery to get Lester to realize that he picked the wrong wom
Say Amen, Again is apparently a sequel to some other books written by Reshonda Tate Billingsley, although you don't really need to read them in order to follow this book. This one is the typical two-women-fighting-over-one-man novel, only the twist here is that the man is the pastor of a prominent church, and plus both women are pregnant with his baby. His wife, Rachel, does her best to get this mistress Mary, out of their lives.

Their story really was of no interest to me, I was really more inte

Say Amen, Again is ReShonda Tate Billingsley’s 23rd book. Her writing style has a flow of humor and thought provoking issues that many are faced with daily. ReShonda has a great way of showing her story through her words. She makes you feel as if you’re best friends with each character. In Say Amen, Again. ReShonda addresses not only the issue of “pray the gay away,” but also bullying. Both of these issues had a huge impact on those involved.

If you have read the series from the beginning, you k

Drama. From the first word on the first page.

What I liked about the book?

The author kept the story on point there was no wasted characters or action in this book. Seriously I could not put it down once I started because I needed to know what was going to happen next.

What I did not like about the book?

How could the author improve the book?

Not possible. I suspect that she put a lot of herself into this book to make sure that it was as good as the first and I must say that she actually outdid

I really liked this book. I loved the short easy to digest chapters, it made for the plot to unfold quickly and there was never a dull moment. The Story was about Rachel and her husband Lester and a whole lot of baby mama drama. The other story in the book had to do with Rachel's brother Jonathan and his dealing with being gay. I have not read the other books in this series, but I would definately like to go back and catch up on all of the drama that I missed in the books that lead up to this ...more

Rachel is up to her shenanigans again. She has grown and matured as a pastor's wife, but the streets will come out of her if you press the wrong button. The novel deals with some serious issues that teens and adults face if depression is truly severe. This portion of the book hit straight home to me.

This is another quick read that allows the readers to follow characters we have come to know and love.

Great continuation of the series. Rachel went through a lot of back and forth and drama that didn't have to happen because of Mary. Pastor Lester got himself into situations that he should never get into. Rachel's father Simon was a wise man and I enjoyed him so much more than in the first book. Johnathan and David have both come a long way too. I would highly recommend this book.

Book Three of the 'Say Amen' series was really good, so glad the drama is over with for a change..... It just goes to show that not everyone is perfect but still some can take it too far. So glad that in the end, Rachel had her family together finally without any more problems :-)

This novel was just as interesting as "Let the Church Say Amen" and "Everybody Say Amen". First Lady, Rachel and Pastor Lester life was so full of drama. A good storyline with lots of drama, twist and turns. A page-turner for sure.

I loved the characters, but don't think there's a need for a fourth book, it ended very well and tied all the loose ends.
