Recent read: The Lord is My Shepherd: The Psalm 23 Mysteries #1

The Lord Is My Shepherd: The Psalm 23 Mysteries #1The Lord Is My Shepherd: The Psalm 23 Mysteries #1 by Debbie Viguié

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I happened to start reading this book right after Easter and found it apropos since the book is centered around Easter week. This cozy starts with a church secretary finding a dead body in the sanctuary of the church where she works. A rabbi from the church next door hears her screams and comes to her aid. The book follows Cindy first trying to get over the shock of finding a dead body and move on, then ultimately being drawn into finding the murderer. The book is full of red herrings and keeps you guessing who the murderer might be. When the culprit is finally revealed there's still suspense and action to follow. Overall I enjoyed this book and liked the characters enough to want to read more books in the series. The only complaint I had was the ridiculous body count. Given the nature of the killer's MO, it fits with the story, but I found the carnage off putting.
