Loved the start to this series! Great mystery, and a solid current of faith in actio.
I really enjoyed this light read set in Maine (#1 out of 3, Mainely Mysteries series). I just recently discovered these Christian inspired mysteries by Heartsong Presents, but apparently I'm a little late as the book club was discontinued due to low subscriptions and the economy a while ago. Out of all the heartsong series, this is one of my favorites so far.

Good news as of 2/2012: these stories are now are now available on the Nook for really great price, so I am super excited to finish the ser...more
Emily, a young woman returns home to sell a lake cabin wondering about her high school sweetheart, Nate, who she has compared to all others. She finds him still there. The tranquil lake community is shattered when she finds two bodies, both murders. Her reporter skills quickly take over to try to solve the murders. Along the way she rekindles her relationship with Nate.

An easy book to read; Christian Mystery Novel. No worries about graphic murder detail, sexual situations or profanity; very ref...more
The Good: I really enjoyed this mystery; two murders solved in one book, with gentle romance to boot!

The Bad: Not really "bad", but it seemed way too far stretched that the main characters were finding soooo many clues to turn over to the police -- didn't seem like the police were doing anything.

The Ugly: Nothing ugly about this one.
I loved this book!!! It was written with humor mixed with a sense of suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and if you are looking for a good read that is very entertaining, this is the book for you...actually mine was 3 in 1 so I just finished reading the 3rd..great book!!

FROM AUTHOR'S WEBSITE: I'm a native of central Maine, and grew up on a small farm with a wonderful mom and dad, three sisters and a brother. Most of my books take place in small towns, many of them in Maine.

My husband, Jim, and I moved to his birth state, Oregon, for a while after we were married, but decided to move back to Maine and be near my family. We're so glad we did. It allowed our six ch...more
