Overview

All that glitters isn't gold in this new compelling tale of love, money, and divorce gone wrong from award-winning and #1 "Essence "bestselling author ReShonda Tate Billingsley.
Most people think that money is the key to happiness, but when an ecstatic Nina Lawson wins millions in the Powerball lottery, her world is turned upside down. At first, she and her fiance, Rick, are delighted with the unexpected windfall and immediately begin planning their future. Soon, family members and friends begin coming out of the woodwork to claim a piece of Nina's winnings. But the most unexpected request comes from Todd, Nina's ex-husband. He and his fiancee, Pam (with whom he had the affair that ended their marriage) reveal that the paperwork making Todd and Nina's divorce official was never filed...and she may be compelled to share half the money with her husband. As the situation begins to spiral out of control, Nina risks losing her heart and her newfound winnings to find out what really matters.
With just the right blend of joy, drama, and humor, Billingsley entertains and inspires readers with every turn of the page--it's no surprise that her readership grows with each new book.

Billingsley’s latest (after Can I Get a Witness?) chronicles the devilishly rude awakening in store for Houstonite Nina Lawson after she wins $8 million in the lottery. Not only are family members she hasn’t seen in years itching to share the loot, but her fiancé, Rick Henderson, starts counting on his piece before the check’s in the bank. Things get even more complicated after Todd, Nina’s ex-husband, ends up not being an ex; turns out his hoochie mama girlfriend, Pam, spent the divorce filing fee on a Fendi bag. Pam urges Todd to wrangle a chunk of Nina’s dough, and he agrees, though with a near-reasonable motivation: to get his ailing Grams a new heart. The ensuing slapstick is fast moving and hilarious as Billingsley ponders how Nina’s impulse to do the right thing gets her in trouble—and yet, somehow, love (and God) provides. (July)
