Enjoy this Small-Town Murder Mystery Featuring A Unique Sleuthing Couple

I'm Father Tom Greer, a Catholic Priest in a small-town parish who never expected this . . .

When I came to Myerton to take over as pastor of Saint Clare's Catholic Church, I never expected to run into a woman I loved in college twenty years ago . . .

I never expected that woman to be the police detective who solved my first wife's murder–and saved my life in the process . . . 

I never expected to fall in love with her all over again . . .

Most of all, I never, ever expected to receive permission from the Holy Father to marry her . . . 

But that's what happened to me.

So after a wonderful wedding and a honeymoon cruise with my new wife, we're looking forward to another week together, just the two of us.

But instead, we have to go back home, to Myerton. 

You see, my deacon's been murdered, and I have a hurting flock to tend to.

I'm Helen Parr Greer, Chief of Police in a small-town police department who never expected this . . .

I never expected him to ask me to solve the murder of his first wife . . . 

I never expected to fall in love with him all over again . . .

Most of all, I never, ever expected him to receive permission from the Holy Father to marry me . . . 

But that's what happened to me.

So after a wonderful wedding and a honeymoon cruise with my new husband, we're looking forward to another week together, just the two of us.

But instead, we have to go back home, to Myerton.

Very enjoyable

Very well written with believable characters and situations. I may not read any of the rest but I liked it.

joining a series of books in the middle

I can’t wait to read the whole series from beginning to end.

Uninteresting

Story was only interesting with the details of the case unfolding. The discussion of the Catholic Church and the members was a bit confusing especially not being Catholic. Skipped through those parts and really focused more on solving the case. Some parts could’ve been left out.
