The world-renowned Reverend Curtis Black's daughter, Alicia, is all grown up and even more trouble than her father. The apple certainly doesn't fall far from the tree in this new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Sin No More and Love and Lies.

Alicia Black Sullivan swore to never repeat her father's mistakes: she would never break any promises, she would never be unfaithful. And most important of all, when she got married, it would be for good.

And she really does love Phillip, the assistant pastor of her father's church. She just happens to love money—and the things it can buy—as well. Alicia was born to the good life, she's entitled to the best, and she'll do anything to get it. Even if it means piling up thousands of dollars in debt. Even if it means denying to everyone—even herself—that her love of shopping has gotten way out of control.

Before long, Phillip begins to wonder if marrying the woman of his dreams was a huge mistake. Alicia has similar thoughts. Deep down, though, she knows a whopper of an emotional bill is coming due. And all the regrets in the world won't change the fact that she may be more like her infamous father than she could have imagined—or feared.

Reverend Curtis Black

Re: The Best Of Everything

Good advise. Resentment about spending habits has been the root of trouble in most of the ex marriages we have seen.
(Karin Tillotson 8:48am June 24, 2009)

Great Advice...Thank you and Best Wishes!
JoAnn White 8:52am June 24, 2009)

There's no end to financial advice in these rocky times. Thanks for adding your voice to the mix. Before joining finances together, it's wise to know what you have, what you want besides necessities and where you're going with a budget plan. The care in being honest and preparation and mostly maintenance that saves a lot of heartache.

You can learn so many things from reading as I did today. I have a pad and pen near me when I read. If I come across something or someone I want to know more about I write it down.
Rosemary Krejsa 10:14am June 24, 2009)

great advice; one my husband and I have followed for the last 30 years together
Diane Sadler 11:05am June 24, 2009)

We have a joint checking account and I also have my own personal account. Let's just say a previous relationship taught me to keep some of my own!
LuAnn Morgan 4:48pm June 24, 2009)

When we got married, my husband
handed me the checkbook and 37
years later I still have it. He was in the
Air Force and being sent overseas. He
couldn't take care of the bills, so it
was my job. I manage the finances,
but it is really a joint affair. I know
what we have and what we can afford.
Neither of us makes any large
purchases without consulting the
other unless it is an emergency.
Except I bought a house before he saw
it. It was an emergency, kind of, sort
of, well he did like it.
Finances damage more marriages than
a lot of other things. Your advice is
very good. I hope it gets out there and
people follow them. I'm making a
copy for one of our patrons who is
getting married soon.
Patricia Barraclough 11:09pm June 24, 2009)

Very good advice,Kimberla. I wish more people thought like you.
