An Inconvenient Friend

An Inconvenient Friend
Rhonda McKnight

Samaria Jacobs AKA Rae Burns has her sights set on Dr. Gregory Preston, a very successful surgeon that can afford her. He’s married to Angelina, The Good Wife, a real Christian, with a broken heart.

As the story unfolds Samaria joins the Women’s Bible Study group to get a look at Angelina, her competition. She meets Angelina and an unlikely “friendship” is formed. “Rae’s” agenda is to get a leg up on Mrs. Preston, but the goodness and sincerity from her prey, puts a very interesting twist in the story. Even though Rae’s plan…”Operation Steal Greg” is in effect. She can’t help but to like Angelina.

The Preston’s lost a child and Angelina wants another child so bad she is willing to look over the late nights, perfume and lipstick stained shirts. Believing her marriage can be saved, she tries to hold things together in spite of the obvious distance and evidence.

Rae Burns method to her madness is desperation. Some self inflicted most were growing pains from a difficult childhood and a love that betrayed her. She’s in serious debt and has the burden of a mother whose mission in life is NOTHING.

Angelina has no clue that the other woman is right in her face. The story line when she gives “Rae” a bible lesson on the book of John and the Samaritan woman, had me laughing out loud because “Samaria” thought she was busted, but it was a lesson in God’s grace. Only Samaria saw the parallels. Very Clever Rhonda!

This 5 star read was excellent. I so loved the twists and the story telling ability of Ms. McKnight. She had me from page one.
