I don't know how I'm going to be able to wait until I get my hands on a copy of the next book from this author! This was a wonderful mystery. The characters were people you'd like to know, the mystery believable and more complicated with every "clue." I took too long over lunch to find out the solution, and now I'm disappointed that there isn't more! Find yourself a copy; I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Great, fast-read of a mystery. Clare is an Episcopalian priest, but she's not like most clergy members: She knows what the real world is like. She may be a bit meddlesome in other people's lives, but she's got their best interests at heart. She's a likeable character and so is Russ, the police chief. He doesn't go to church and constantly "takes the Lord's name in vain." He's a pussycat under his veneer of cynicism.
I really like this series and will read more. Clare Fergusson is an Episcopal priest in a conservative parish who may not be quite ready for her. A newborn infant is left at the door of the church and the search for the mom leads to many secrets in the small New England village.
This is the frist book in the series, with Clare Fergusson, the new priest at St Alban's aad her friend, the town police cheif Russ Van Alstyne. I did't think I would like this mystery, but I loved it.
First book in a series, hope to find book #2 out there at PBS
