Birdie Tweet, a member of the Oh-Lawd-Why-Am-I-Still-Single church group, meets the love of her life, only to discover he's a con artist. When the ladies of this African-American group decide to seek revenge on this lothario, all hell breaks loose. Pat G'Orge-Walker created the gospel-comedy genre, and this audiobook sets the gold standard. Lizan Mitchell's deadpan delivery is the perfect foil to this hilarious text. She depicts these women in well-modulated tones, not stereotypical accents. Mitchell's voice is so intimate as she brings her audience into the fold that all who listen become co-conspirators in this madcap romp. Whoda thunk Christian ladies could be so much fun? Hallelujah!
