Reverend Clare Ferguson is the central character in this murder mystery. Since she is always trying to help her flock as well as learn a bit more about what's going on the town of Miller's Kill, Clare is in the middle of just about all the action.
The town is divided by the possible impact of the new spa that is being constructed - some are anxious to have the jobs and business expansion, others are worried about the environmental impact of the facility. How does a minister get into the middle of these situations? You'd be surprised and as well as entertained as to how she does it.
Every year I choose a series that I started that I wanted to be completely caught up on by the end of the year and this is the series that I chose for 2012 so I am really looking forward to reading more of Clare's adventures with her flock. A great series so far - hope that it just gets better and better.
