When Perfection Fails (Victory Gospel Series, #3) by Tyora Moody

About the Book

Reverend Jonathan Freeman and his wife Lenora are quickly becoming Charlotte’s “it” couple. All eyes are on them as Jonathan is named pastor of a church following the death of his father and Lenora has become a sought-after wedding planner. The Freemans are media darlings and a model couple; the picture of perfection. Or are they?

Behind the scenes, Jonathan struggles with his role as pastor of a megachurch while Lenora grows increasingly and uncharacteristically distant. A number of odd and tragic incidents push her further away from the love of her life and the façade of perfection begins to crack.

A carefully guarded secret catches up with Lenora and it threatens her security as well as that of her family. Has an imperfect past finally caught up with her? Will the ghost of someone she thought long dead rise like Lazarus from the grave and destroy all she has worked to preserve? Or will Lenora fight to protect the man she loves and the beautiful life God has blessed her to have?

My Review:

This is the third book I’ve read in the Victory Gospel series, and we are reunited with old friends.
Once you begin turning the pages you won’t stop, it is a quick and compelling read that keeps your attention right to the end. This is Lenora and Jonathan’s story, along with their family. They have been together for over twenty years, and their lives appear to be drifting apart. You begin to wonder if the Reverend and his wife, the wedding planner, will be able to stay together.
This book has a lot of action and surprises right up until the end. You think you know what is going on, but nope, guess again. Can something that happened, as a teenage be what all the threatening messages are about? Will they be able to put a face to who the tormentor is before someone is seriously hurt or perhaps murdered?
Don’t miss the latest installment in this series, you won’t be disappointed, I sure wasn’t, just wanted more!

I received this book from the author, and was not required to give a positive review.
