If you are looking for a mystery series dealing with an Episcopal priest then this is it. I found this series after finishing Jan Karon's Mitford series, and I've not been disappointed. Maynard portrays the congregation as we know them to be. Some good, some not so good.

I enjoyed this book, but not as much as I did Jan Karon's books. The characters are well developed, but I found a few inconsistencies with the story line. Definitely more sizzle than Jan Karon's plots, but not as endearing.

My Episcopal friends will be able to relate to this book a lot! It hit the nail on "traditional Episcopalians" and showed how open, loving, and wonderful the denomination truly is.
