I truly enjoyed this mystery and was delighted to find it had a wonderful Christian message as well. Have decided to read the entire series and how to read lots more by this talented author who is using her talents to give us reading enjoyment and spread the Good News.
Very good book. Could not put it down. I will be reading more of Terri Blackstock's books. She does an excellent job of blending the character's struggle with their faith and the mystery part of the story.
