This is my sixth Hayden Koenig book. OCD requires me to read them in order. By now these folks have become my friends. I sit in on their informal meetings at The Slab and The Ginger Cat to hear the latest St. Germaine news (read gossip), and I can hardly wait for Sunday so I can attend St. Barnabas to see what new antics the latest priest will concoct. I no longer consider this a guilty pleasure to be read by flashlight under bedcovers, I LOL often, and I don't care who hears.

The sixth installment of the Liturgical Mysteries reintroduces the good people of the village of St Germaine, North Carolina, the good people of St Barnabas' Episcopal Church, the fellow who is both chief of police to the one and organist-choirmaster to the other. There is much that is new in this episode. The interim priest at St Barnabas' produces "The Living Gobbler" -- a Thanksgiving spectacular show calculated to compete with the neighbouring Baptist's "Singing Christmas Tree." The reader a...more

My blizzard book, this series just keeps getting better. I love the main characters and can't wait to see what disaster befalls the church this time round. This one wasn't as laugh out loud funny as the last book, but it was great none the less. I'm not sure how he manages to combine churches, police chief, very serious music, very bad writing and super silly songs and make the stories this much fun.

This is a fun, quick read, one in a series of goofy small-town antics by Mark Schweizer. For my Carolina friends, you'll be interested to know that it's set in fictional St Germaine, NC, supposedly within shouting distance of Boone. The main character has a penchant for writing bad crime novels, so his expcerpts are very funny.

There are seven of these Liturgical Mysteries. They are wonderful. Not great literature, but GREAT fun. I read every one of them, one right after the other, and wished for more.

Highly recommended, especially for those who know anything about church music and small town Episcopalians.

The Living Gobbler - the St. Baranbas Thanksgiving extravaganza led by the Rev. Lemming and his wife, the new ministry team at the church. That's really all that needs to be said. If you're an aficionado of this series, you get it! I love this series!
Jessie Verino
I love these books! A little mystery, a lot of fun. I wouldn't consider this one the best of the series, but an improvement over the last one I read. Love the little town and all the whacky characters.
Donna Jean
Most hilarious book I've read in a very long time! So much fun, especially if you're an Episcopalian. This series is very much up my alley. Try one, you'll enjoy it.

I thought this was Schweizer's best mystery in the series. And it was a heck of a lot of fun, too. St. Germaine was at its absurb, yet lovable best.

All these books in the series are a hoot. If you are looking for a small town with an inside look into the choir loft, these are sure picks.
Elizabeth
6th in the Liturgical Mysteries series. This one features the Living Gobbler service - hilarious!

The "mink" story line was hilarious. Especially when they... well, you'll have to read it yourself.

Not as laugh-out-loud funny as the previous book in the series but still a fast, fun read.

In 1974, Mark Schweizer, a brand-new high-school graduate decided to eschew the family architectural business and become an opera singer. Against all prevailing wisdom and despite jokes from his peers such as "What does the music major say after his first job interview?" (answer: You want fries with that?), he enrolled in the Music School at Stetson University. To his father, the rationale was obv...more
