Over 100 positive reviews on Amazon
Thompson’s engaging, high-energy Christian murder mystery gleefully mixes all the elements of a small-town murder mystery—gossip, foul play, backstabbing ... more mysteries, hypocrisies, and dangers add to the intrigue. Thompson’s tale looks intimately at what it means to function in a community—how a population can reveal and obscure the truth.
If you are a fan of mystery novels with a lot of action you will enjoy this book.
It's hard not to enjoy the humor of the situation just as much as the murder mystery. Martha is a strong character who presents a few flaws when her obsession in solving the crimes became paramount. And it is gratifying to watch the evolution of the church and its members as everything occurred within their town and congregation. This is one of those books that I want to just keep telling you about all the great situations, plots, and sub-plots that have been provided.
Quick paced, well written with a wonderful cast of characters, a good plot, a really scary bad guy and all the trappings of a good murder mystery... (even some humor)... The Rector will keep you entertained from start to finish and the biblical references aren't in the least "preachy" and only help to enrich the story. This is book one of a series that I will certainly follow as this author comes out with each new murder mysteries that Miss Martha McRae will surely feel compelled to solve as she was with this one.
The last time that I fell in love with a town so deeply, it was when Jan Karon created Mitford. These characters will completely capture your heart. These are real characters with real struggles. Most of them just want to be the best they can be and help each other. Of course, we do have a few characters that just don't fit in. They have their own agenda. Every character is beautifully flawed. This book captures human essence better than any other mystery I've read.
