#1 national bestselling author ReShonda Tate Billingsley gets to the heart of loss, love, and betrayal in her latest novel that is sure to delight her legions of fans.ReShonda isn't just an amazing author, but she is a filmmaker and publisher. She and her writing twin, Victoria Christopher Murray, started Brown Girls Publishing in February and have been releasing some exciting books that have been getting rave reviews from readers and the publishing industry.
Felise is not the kind of woman to cheat on her husband—especially with her best friend’s man. But after one perfect storm of a night, it happened…and she can hardly believe it herself. To top it off, when she woke up in the morning, she found that the man to whom she guiltily made passionate love died of a heart attack overnight. Felise, who is a nurse and a good citizen at that, leaves the hotel room without reporting his death.
When her best friend, Paula, finds out about her husband’s sudden death a day later, Felise is overcome with guilt and grief. She must be there for her friend and her family, but when her husband repeatedly tries to apologize for his absentminded behavior and Paula starts investigating who Stephen was with the night he died, Felise finds it hard to hold herself together. Should she come clean and tell everyone what she did? Or should she just let it go and move past the mistake on her own?
ReShonda's book, Let The Church Say Amen, is slated to be turned into a BET movie and she even has a role in the movie (she may or may not be writing her Emmy speech right now).
