"[H]ilarious, fast paced, and madcap!"―Booklist (starred review)
Furious after being stood up by local hottie Johnny Leeson, Mira decides to abandon Battle Lake, Minnesota, where the women are churchgoers, the men like to hunt, and the body count is above average. But when a cheerleader bites the dust, Mira is called back to the town that has done her wrong.
She begins investigating the New Millennium Bible Camp, a disturbing place with a Stepford Wives-meets-Hee-Haw vibe. She wants desperately to ditch Battle Lake, but before she does, Mira is hell-bent on confronting her own demons to catch a killer.

Very enjoyable mystery
Well written mystery that keeps you interested to the end. No graphic violence, sex scenes and little foul language. Funny, irrelevant and intriguing. Kept me guessing til the end.
Mediocre a best
I’m sorry, I really wanted to love this book but the first 100 pages bored me to death. It’s confusing and the characters were also boring with the exception of Mrs. Berns who is just idiotic. Also she says she is 89 but in the next series she is 84. All in all really pretty poor writing and wouldn’t read another by this author.
What a cast of looney characters! Love the book! I always appreciate a mystery I incorrect thought I solved. Very good twist!
I recommend this book
