A fast-paced murder mystery with a rich setting in America’s oldest capital city. An engaging cast of sympathetic heros, organized criminals and supernatural elements make for a fun and compelling read.
A PILGRIMAGE TO DEATH
Reverend Cici,has taken on another role, with the murder of her twin, a year ago, and now a murder of a fellow parishioner, with the same method.
Sam, a friend, hiking partner, and a detective, on weekly joints now, and made better sermons for her, With 2 murder victims now known to her, she feels there will be more, if she doesn’t look into it. Is there secrets that never was told to her, a reason for the wolf emblem. A new author, for me, and she delivered a good, descriptive plot, of the settings, also of the characters. Readers will definitely enjoy this mystery story.
Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
Wow! I couldn't put it down. I love the concept of the bond between the sisters surviving even death. The book was heavy of mystery and suspense. I was guessing til the end. I love the budding relationship and connection between Cici and Sam. As a romance lover, I'd love to see the romance evolve faster, but I understand this is a mystery...so I can be patient! I can't wait to see what the rest of the series brings!
