Don't Blame the Devil by Pat G'Ore-Walker - 5 stars

I haven't read anything this funny in years. Delilah and Thurgood are a old school couple that spent 40 years trying to find their way back to each other. After a hot mess at a night club separated their family, another drama filled few months may bring them back together.

G'Orge-Walker is a master writer of Christian comedy. I was falling on the floor laughing at Delilah's antics while Sister Marty was praying for the families salvation. Jessie

You can’t Blame The Devil for everything, especially when she shows up 40 years later. Deacon Pillar has more skeletons in his closet than a graveyard. One he thought was long gone shows up in the church parking lot. Delilah has her own interpretation of religion, and she thinks she’s owed something. Delilah looks like Lena Horne, sings like an angel but is hell in a Navigator. She and the deacon have some unfinished business that has come to pass. Unknowingly the time has come. The aging but st ...more

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! It is always good to read a good drama. Don't Blame the Devil Was full of excitement and laughs and heart-stopping moments. Delilah Dupree Jewel and Decon Pillar are the funniest two characters since Sister Imahellraiser. This book has substance and depth with biblical references - whether is is King James version or Delilah Dupree, and it gives you a true storyline. The cast in this book could be your neighbors because their story is everyday life. Kudos to Pat G'Orge-Walke ...more

The book was interesting full of humor and showed how a realtionship that can go sour can reborn again. And that no matter if you were not a every day church goer does not mean that you do not read the bible. And prayer does work.
