About the Book
Reverend Jonathan Freeman and his wife Lenora are quickly becoming Charlotte’s “it” couple. All eyes are on them as Jonathan is named pastor of a church following the death of his father and Lenora has become a sought-after wedding planner. The Freemans are media darlings and a model couple; the picture of perfection. Or are they? Behind the scenes, Jonathan struggles with his role as pastor of a megachurch while Lenora grows increasingly and uncharacteristically distant. A number of odd and tragic incidents push her further away from the love of her life and the façade of perfection begins to crack. A carefully guarded secret catches up with Lenora and it threatens her security as well as that of her family. Has an imperfect past finally caught up with her? Will the ghost of someone she thought long dead rise like Lazarus from the grave and destroy all she has worked to preserve? Or will Lenora fight to protect the man she loves and the beautiful life God has blessed her to have?

Excerpt from Chapter 1 from When Perfection Fails
As Lenora continued walking towards her husband, she stopped and turned as if someone was calling her. No one had called her name, but she felt as if someone was trying to get her attention. She looked around and as if time had stopped, her eyes focused on a man. He was looking in her direction.
Lenora sensed people passing her. She smiled absently at the passersby as a memory clung to the edges of her mind. Where had she seen this man before?
Pastor Jeremiah’s funeral brought a diverse crowd from all walks of life, but she couldn’t figure out if the man was biracial or a tanned white man. He was average height, with a very low buzz cut and he had no facial hair. Lenora had to be about twenty feet from him, but she was struck by his pale intense eyes.
Lenora’s breathing turned shallow. One thing she hated more than anything in the world was to sweat. She felt beads of sweat above her lip and around the edge of her hat. Lenora pressed her French-manicured fingernails into her hands as a wave of nausea swept over her. She broke her stare and looked away. A memory from long ago flashed in her mind, but she couldn’t grasp the image.
Where had she seen him before?
Lenora’s mind went to focus on the man. He was no longer there. She looked to the right and then to the left to see where he had gone. Her eyes found the strange man as he slipped out of the Victory Gospel Center’s side entrance leading into the parking lot.
Forgetting that she was supposed to be returning to Jonathan’s side, Lenora stepped around a group of ladies and headed towards the exit where the man had left. She didn’t know why she was compelled to follow the man, but her gut was churning with nervousness. She just had to know his identity.
Lenora pushed the side entrance door open and stepped out onto the sidewalk. She looked to the left and then to the right. Where did he go? The sun was making its descent for the day. She held her hands above her eyes to squint into the massive parking lot. There were people standing around, but she couldn’t tell if any of them were him.
Nobody can just disappear into thin air.
