A Sin and a Shame: A Novel (Paperback)
From the bestselling author of The Personal Librarian, the ever-scheming Jasmine Larson, from the Essence bestseller Temptation, has sworn off all the lying, manipulating, and cheating that got her into trouble in back in Los Angeles—but will turning to Christianity truly change her?
After fleeing Los Angeles when her attempt to break up her best friend's marriage fails, Jasmine is now a changed woman...and a Christian. She vows to attend church every Sunday, swears off married men, and begins her search for the soul mate she is sure God has for her. Now living in the Big Apple, she has shed twenty-five pounds, shaved ten years off her age, filled her expensive apartment with designer clothes...all to begin her man-finding mission.
She quickly meets her dream mate—a preacher—who falls head over heels in love with her. Surely, God is good! But things start slipping when another man from Jasmine's past refuses to stay there, and an unexpected pregnancy threatens to sabotage all of her dreams. Will Jasmine's lying and scheming continue? Or will she finally learn that honesty is the only path to redemption?
