The Deal, the Dance, and the Devil is a must read!
Adam and Eva Langston have come a long way from where they both grown up in the slums of Washington, D.C. They have three children, a nice house, cars and they are being in the money. Well they were bringing in the money. This is until Adam was let go from his job. Now with the recession, they are trying to survive on a one person income. When Eva’s boss, Shay-Shaunte makes an offer to Eva, she must choose whether to make the deal with the devil.
What Eva and Adam were going through is what is currently happening to people in the real world. This is what made this book so good. I could relate literally to Eva and Adam’s situation. Of course, I am lucky that I don’t have to make the choice that Eva and Adam had to make with Shay-Shaunte. Though, the devil can appear in many different forms and with many different temptations. This was surprising to me that this book was based around the devil and the Bible somewhat. I was not expecting this. This was a nice surprise. I was rooting for Eva and Adam. It was funny to see Eva slip back into her old sixteen year old self at times from a cultivated woman. The Deal, the Dance, and the Devil is a must read! The only deal that you will make is convincing yourself not to pick up a copy of this book. Victoria Christopher Murray is going on my list of authors to keep an eye on.
