Title: 
You Gotta Sin to Get Saved

Reesy Braxton, 35, has finally found her birth mother, after alienating her husband, distressing her adoptive mother, and upsetting her sister, Connie, who isn't happy about finding the mother who deserted them. Charlotte Rogers often thinks about the two children she had to leave behind, and she clings to her third daughter, Cammy. Mason takes a straightforward tale and spins it into an emotionally complex story with unexpected twists. Multiple points of view and flashbacks offer insights along the way as each member of this broken African American family comes into focus-Reesy, who's raising her two sons as well as Connie's daughter; Connie, who stops her string of abortions and has a baby, only to give it away; Cammy, who feels responsible for her unstable mother; and Charlotte herself, thrilled to hear from her long-gone daughters but unsure of how to reconnect. Graphic sex and violence stun the reader into realizing how much these women have been through. Read more about Sister 2 Sister/Brother 2 Brother: You Gotta Sin to Get Saved

Carl Weber
Title: 
So You Call Yourself A Man

In signature Weber style, alternating first-person chapters follow the troubled, Catch-22 lives of best-of-friends trio James Robinson, Brent Williams and Sonny Harrison. Within the first five pages, James's marriage is in jeopardy when Michelle, an ex-flame, reappears with a love child that she claims is his. Gorgeous Brent is a devout Christian who marries a big woman with a big heart, but ends up in a fiery love affair with a respected church member -- one that calls more than his marriage into question. And after getting a Dear John letter from his wife, who unexpectedly takes off with their children, Sonny reconnects with an ex-, but wife Jessica's reasons for leaving, when they come out, may put all of his relationships in doubt.

Title: 
Holy Ghost Corner

Savvy forty-something businesswoman Theresa Hopson just can't figure it out. Through hard work, spectacular Sunday hats, and "Saved Hoochie Mama" underwear, she's made her Miss Thang's Holy Ghost Corner and Church Women's Boutique one of the hottest new stores in Durham, North Carolina. She's stayed strong in her Walk (thanks to the Fayetteville Gospel United Church and tell-you-'bout-your-business church elder Miss Queen-Esther). And she lives by the high standards she's convinced she needs to succeed. Yet Theresa can't find the kind of strong and centered mighty man of God she'd want to marry. Watching Durham's most eccentric resident, Baby Doll Henderson-famous for her eye-catching false teeth and jelly sandals and knee socks-land a loving husband makes Theresa wonder why she's still single. It never occurs to her that maybe she needs to lose the sorry lot of men she has found... Read more about Sister 2 Sister: Holy Ghost Corner
