The Choir Director 2-Runaway Bride by: Carl Weber
Carl Weber takes readers back to church in his latest drama-filled novel, the much-anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller, The Choir Director.
It’s been three years since Aaron Mackie succeeded in helping his friend and mentor, Bishop T.K. Wilson, dig his ministry out of financial ruin. Aaron is also responsible for re-energizing the almost defunct choir into something special. His success has drawn national attention, and he’s on the verge of signing a huge recording contract. With his life in order, Aaron decides the time is right to propose to Tia Gregory, the church secretary who caught his eye and inspired him to shed his Tiger Woods-like tendencies to become a one-woman man. The stage is set for what might be the wedding of the year, but quickly becomes the disaster of the year when Aaron is left at the altar without explanation.
Now, during his own hour of need, Aaron turns to the bishop for help. Unfortunately, the line he asks T. K. to cross will force the bishop to choose between faith and friendship, or as he puts it, “between heaven and hell.” As the investigation into Tia’s disappearance continues, the two men are challenged in ways they never imagined.
Ivee Henderson is a media consultant accustomed to being in control. But when her drinking goes from casual to reckless, she’s forced to pay a price that’s higher than any check she could ever write.
A stay-at-home mom, Darby Jaxon is fed up with her life. She starts secretly drinking to get through each day and to hide her dirty little secret: the fact that she can’t stop thinking about the drunk driver who killed her sister—mainly because she’s drawn to him like a moth to a flame.
For single mom Peta Nixon, under the influence is the only way she can stomach her ex-husband. Since their separation (because of his bed-hopping habits), they can’t seem to keep their hands off each other—that is, until one night, when her drinking ends it all for good.
Everything is more manageable after a few drinks—or so it seems for the ladies in The Cocktail Club. Problems shrink, work is less stressful, and love finally has clarity. But is drinking really the answer or is a dark payback waiting for them at the bottom of each cocktail?
