Lifelong friends Coco, Nita, and Tia are fed up with their bad luck in love. The beautiful and demure Coco has endured years of physical abuse from her boyfriend but can’t seem to drum up the courage to leave him. Tia, a single mother, has dated her fair share of slackers and cheaters and yearns for a stable companion who will be a father figure to her son. Meanwhile, the feisty and seductive Nita is getting fed up with her club-hopping lifestyle and wants to settle down. She just has to find someone worth coming home to.
Tia decides to take action and encourages Nita and Coco to try a new approach—“holy rolling.” Masquerading as God-fearing churchgoers, the three women don their Sunday best and attend a local conference for ministers, hoping to find reliable, responsible men. Their results are varied—Nita settles down quickly with Marshall, a hot young minister who she loves but whose lifestyle proves too sedate for her tastes. Tia thinks she has met the perfect man, only to discover he has a fiancée waiting for him in Atlanta. And Nita finds the man of her dreams and, most importantly, the courage to stand up for herself.
In her signature style, ReShonda Tate Billingsley once again combines spiritual themes and real-life drama in a compelling story of humor, heart, and hope that her fans are sure to relish.
