In this hilarious send-up of church life, the husband-hungry members of the Oh Lawd Why Am I Still Single church group have gathered to complain about the slim pickings in their little town of Pelzer, South Carolina. And newcomer Birdie Tweet may offer just the opportunity they're looking for. . .

Birdie's love life was bleak until she received a phone call from Lyon Lipps, an irresistible AfroLatino hunk. Unbeknownst to Birdie, he's also a con artist who has seduced countless women. Now he's found Jesus and wants to reconnect with good Sister Tweet. But when Birdie passes around Lyon's photo, which is actually his mug shot, several ladies in the church group recognize him. . .

The ladies devise a plan for revenge that will also improve their chances of meeting men. They're going cruising aboard the aptly named ship, Desperation of the Seas. And they plan to trick Lyon into sailing along with them. Soon, they're riding a wave of bickering, betrayal, and unholy behavior, with plenty of laughs and a few genuine revelations along the way. . .

"A winner!"Angela Benson, author of Sins of the Father

"Page turning laughs, a soul stirring message, and characters you won't soon forget. . .after reading Cruisin' on Desperation, your cruise through life and faith will never be the same."Stacy Hawkins Adams, author of Worth a Thousand Words
