My Review

“So, let the games begin!”

With five simple words, the fun begins in Friends & Foes by ReShonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray. I must admit that I am a huge fan of both ReShonda and Victoria’s so it would have taken a major catastrophe for me to dislike this book. If you aren’t familiar with Rachel Jackson Adams and Jasmine Larson Bush then you are truly missing out on entertainment that could rival any show that is currently on Bravo or VH1.

Even though both are married to pastors, these two ladies are not the perfect image of first ladies. They are flawed, conniving, competitive, in a nutshell, they are regular women.  Jasmine and Rachel are so used to being at each other’s throats and trying to outdo one another that the script is completely flipped when they must team together in order to survive until the final page of Friends & Foes.

ReShonda & Victoria have again accomplished the amazing feat of seamless writing. The writing flows off the pages and it is full of humor, wit, suspense, drama, and eventually friendship.  If you have not read any of the other books in the Rachel or Jasmine series that is ok, because Friends & Foes will work as a standalone. But, why neglect yourself? Grab all of the books by ReShonda and Victoria, I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed!!!
