Sister Betty Says I Do by Pat G'Orge-Walker

Sister Betty has never married.  Now that she's in her "golden years", she's pleasantly surprised when Freddie asks her to marry him.  She knows the church people will want to interfere but she has no idea how far out of hand it will get...

Dafina, a division of Kensington Books, sent me an copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore to get a copy.

Betty is a patient, prayerful woman.  She takes everyone under her wing and helps them out.  Not everyone in the church appreciates that.

This author gives you a story with tongue-in-cheek humor and a bit of Christianity thrown in.  Every church has some competing senior women.  You may not see them, but they're there.  And they don't intend to let anyone get ahead of them or get more attention than they do.  So when they decide to do Betty's wedding reception, you know it's going to be a disaster.

Freddie gets sick and is staying with Betty, sleeping in the spare room.  They sneak over and try to catch them in bed together.  When Freddie gets a bit distant, Betty is afraid he's having second thoughts.  Freddie is afraid Betty doesn't really want to get married.  They both are trying to get advice from their preacher, but he's having his own troubles.  He's been waiting for the right opportunity to marry and now he has two women going after him!

I found it to be a silly, funny story that was very enjoyable to read.  Watching Sister Betty and Trustee Freddie trying to have a nice quiet wedding is a hoot!

Happy reading.
