Reviews for Choir Director
Booklist Reviews 2011 February #2
When the popular choir director of First Jamaican Ministries, the biggest church in Queens, New York, is presented a Man of the Year award, his wife announces to the congregation that he is gay, forcing him out of the closet and out of the church. Demoralized by their director's double life, the choir dwindles to only a handful of members. Bishop T. K. Wilson, determined to find a choir director who can make his choir great again (and his church famous), offers the position, along with a great salary and nice car, to Aaron Mackie, who has the voice of an angel, the looks of a cover model, and the charisma of a Kennedy. However, unbeknownst to Bishop Wilson, Aaron, whose angelic voice belies his devilish behavior, has been driven from his last position by a gun-toting minister who found Aaron with his wife, in the Biblical sense. Faith, hope, and fornication constitute the theme of this lusty tale as Weber's sex-driven choir director meets the hormonally active ladies of the First Jamaican Church.

Juicy scandals rock Bishop T.K. Wilson's First Jamaica Ministries Church in Queens, New York City, in Weber's latest church series eyebrow-raiser. Monique, Bishop's first lady, and her fellow megachurch members are shocked when Jackie Robinson Moss, their choir director, is revealed to be gay and a seducer of many "straight" churchgoers, causing a drop in church membership and cash-flow problems. Wilson recruits (blackmails?) Aaron Mackie, a hot, gifted Virginia choir director, to set things right. Aaron attracts the wild and crazy Simone Wilcox, self-obsessed chairwoman of the board of trustees running Jamaica Ministries who's been pilfering from the church's accounts along with a duplicitous deacon. Aaron, however, is more interested in Tia Gregory, the church's much nicer secretary/rape counselor. After a church member commits suicide, secrets are exposed that could destroy the church and various relationships as Weber (Up to No Good) successfully explores the multiple megaproblems challenging this church family and scores again with a lively mix of church politics and bedroom follies.
