Good little mystery, but does have quite a few typos.

I really enjoyed this book, it's the first of Ms. Duncan's that I've read. It's a really cute Christian mystery set in an ideal village where there isn't hardly any crime to speak of. The Chief of Police's mother and his Aunt Emily grew up in the house that he took over when he came back to the village to get away from the crime of Cleveland. He is determined to have his Aunt Emily live with him while she is fighting her battle with Lupus. The small village has changed though and there are the ...more

I must say the cover of Serenity Springs, Ohio by Lillian Duncan attracted me to this book. Not only did it say it took place in the state that I live, but loved the look of the quaint, cozy town where it takes place.

Lillian has her finger (and pen) on the heartbeat of a small hometown in Wooster, where people know and care about each other. The first page digs right into the heart of the story, setting up the murder scene that takes on many twists and turns which needs to be solved, or can

In fairness I really don't like crime novels. If you like a "who done it" you will like this story. The search for the Midwest takes many twists and turn throughout the novel. Topics within the novel include; spouse abuse, mental illness, chronic illness, and Lupus. Characters face life's issues using scripture and Faith to help them. The story is well written.

The author treated us to a wonderful look at small town life, even in the midst of an unusual murder mystery. Wayne County, Akron, and Cuyahoga Falls are near my home, which enriched my enjoyment of the book. I loved the portrayal of Emily as a wise "Aunt" who struggled with the disabling effects of Lupus. Her nephew, Matthew, showed a lot of common sense as the village Police Chief. I loved the character development in the murder suspects as the author kept us guessing to the end. Serenity ...more

I think this is a wonderful book that shows that Christians are in all different jobs and they rely on their faith to help them get through daily problems. Continued talking to our Lord about everything does help a person be better. Aunt Emily's faith made a serious, possibly deadly outcome become saving 2 lives in jeopardy.

Yes, the murder mystery gets solved; but I felt like the main characters still had so much more to tell me about themselves. Those characters intrigued me and I wish I knew what happened next in their stories.

Was a nice book but it really could use a good proof reader. Way too many spelling errors.

I found this book to be very good. Ms. Duncan captures family life in a way that is very familiar and deals with it in manner that I wish everyone would. As for the illegal activities she shows that these can be dealt with in a thoughtful and nonviolent manner instead of thoughtless and violent actions that can lead to bad consequences for all. I will read more of Ms. Duncan's works.
