This book was just alright for me. It sorta drug on and on.

Someone is harassing Annette with threatening letters and phone calls. The harassment drives a wedge between Annette and her husband Pee Wee. Meanwhile Rhoda's spoiled daughter, Jade, is leading a double life that Annette is fully aware of. Annette finds it difficult to say no to the beautiful Jade, enabling her risky sexual behavior. Everyone to some extent is keeping secrets in this novel but the story mainly focuses on discovering who is making Annette's life so miserable.

This novel was too predictable for me. It was publised in 2006, and since I'm reading it years after finishing the first two Annette/Rhoda novels, I wasn't as emotionally invested as I was with the first two books. I think if I would have read them back to back I would have been more intrigued by the characters.

I figured out who was harassing Annette quite early; it was confirmed when I accidentally read the beginning of a chapter. Monroe is a good storyteller but the only thing this book established for the "God" series is that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0758203470, Paperback)

From Mary Monroe, beloved author of God Don't Like Ugly and God Still Don't Like Ugly, comes the entwined stories of two lifelong friends, their secrets and lies, and a new challenge that could destroy their relationship once and for all...

With a handsome husband, a beautiful daughter, and a lovely house to come home to every night, forty-five-year-old Annette Goode finally has it all. Heaven knows she paid her dues--from a childhood filled with abuse to a rocky start as an adult. Annette's friend Rhoda knows too, for Rhoda has been both her savior and her greatest fear. Their erratic relationship has survived some serious bumps in the road. But now that things are good, someone apparently thinks they're a little too good...

When Annette receives an anonymous--and menacing--birthday gift, it's just the beginning of a slew of hostile letters, vicious phone calls, and vile packages from a female who is obviously disguising her voice. Gaining comfort from the support of Rhoda and Rhoda's teenage daughter, Jade, Annette hopes that somehow the problem will go away. But when the threats extend to her little daughter, Annette realizes the situation is dire. And she's right, for soon her tormentor reveals exactly what she wants--and how it could destroy everything Annette has built...
