Described as a mystery, I felt a bit lost. The mystery is who owns a dog and how to help someone solve a medical problem. I don't think of these things when I hear mystery. But the story was good, well-written, I just think the theme was a bit juvenile.

Fun light mysteries
This is the second "Minister's Wife Mystery" that I've read. Like many series published by Guideposts the individual books are frequently by different authors. In this one, the mystery is very mild but the characters are well written and that is more the focus of the story. However, I did think that the subplot about the brothers and the dog was unnecessary (and even distracting) from the main story. The effort to tie that into the main story near the end was a reach.
Slightly better than book 1. I liked the idea of why Elvis possibly named Graceland as he did (Grace Land, land of grace).

Likely to read rest of series: I honestly thought these two were it, until just now when I looked here and saw that there were more in the series. Definitely not going to make it through any more.

This book was really good. There was no mystery but they needed grace because this girl has blood cancer. She needed a marrow donor. They thought her sister could have it but she didn't have one. This man named Jack Wilson. So she was saved. Not really a mystery in this one, only about Paticira's life. And her 2 daughters.

I didn't like this book as well as the first books I read by this author. The ending was too obvious, though I do like happy endings. I could predict the ending almost from the beginning. Overall it was okay and it was an easy read.
This wasn't really much of a mystery. It was more about the importance of relationships. The characters are lovable in this series so they are just nice, easy, uplifting reads.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a story that was easily believeable and the author drew me in, and I felt like I was part of the search for Marissa's twin sister.

Enjoyable read... DePree is high on my favorite author's list!
I wouldn't really call this series "mystery", but I like them. Easy to read and the plots move along quickly and they are faith- based.
