Atlanta Author Inspirational Romance Hits Stores Before Valentine's Day

Love is on the bookshelves in our favorite Atlanta bookstores just in time for Valentine's Day. Atlanta based published author Rhonda McKnight women’s fiction/romance novel hybrid WHAT KIND OF FOOL(Urban Books) releases nationwide today. McKnight chats with Examiner Atlanta to talk more about her new book.

Describe WHAT KIND OF FOOL in less than 14 words.

Love, betrayal, heartache and tough decisions complicate the intricately tied relationships of two couples.

Examiner: Why did you decide to write a sequel to AN INCONVENIENT FRIEND?

McKnight: AN INCONVENIENT FRIEND ended with a Christian couple's marriage torn asunder by what I would describe as a human tornado. I didn't want it to end that way for the characters and I also felt God's call to tell a story about a couple dealing with the aftermath of infidelity. In today's culture, infidelity is often considered a deal breaker for the marriage, even amongst Christians. I don't believe there should be any deal breakers in God. I'm not saying every couple can survive it, but if it happens, the couple should try.

Why is WHAT KIND OF FOOL a great novel to read around Valentine's Day?

It has lots of romance. The book cover is telling. :)

Why is Greg and Angelina's story so compelling?

Angelina and Greg have endured the worse kind of heartache, the loss of their child. They have some serious problems, but we want them to work it out. Readers love Angelina. They want the marriage restored, because Angelina deserves her happy ending. We'll see if she gets it.

What's next for you?

I'm working on an exciting new project that highlights a woman's issue that is near and dear to my heart. It's too early to talk about. I haven't even submitted the proposal to my editor for approval, so I'll keep it under wraps for now
