Cindy’s church is getting ready to celebrate Easter, and Jeremiah’s Temple is preparing for Passover when Cindy literally stumbles over the body of an unknown man lying dead in the sanctuary.

The reviews I've read of this book tend to be at one extreme or the other. Readers either love it or hate it. Generally those who hate it object to the number of murders for a Christian book. T...more

The Presbyterian Church, First Shepard is situated next door to the Jewish Temple. They have shared parking lots for many years, now they share a murder!
This gently presented novel holds some shocking Easter themed murders of a serial killer. It is not a traditional cozy murder, yet, it does hold some of the feel of a cozy. Amateur Sleuths, Church...more
The only negative point I found in the story is that it is blatantly obvious who the killer is the moment they appear. That is sort of rectified by the fact that it isn't revealed how the killer is involved with the victims or the other characters until the en...more

Odd that I can swing from cosy murder thriller to hard core horror, but that's pretty much says it all about me.

The Lord Is My Shepherd is the first book in Debbie Viguié's series The Psalm 23 Mystery series.
I got this book as an Amazon freebie for my Kindle a few months back. I was in the mood for another mystery following the other few that I have read recently, so I settled in for this one. It sounded very intriguing to me!
The Lord Is My Shepherd is a Christian murder mystery (I'm pretty sure the title is a dead giveaway that it is Christian) but i...more
I have to say though, because I haven't finished this story, I am not entirely convinced yet that the rabbi, Jeremiah, isn't the killer himself. Guess...more
