I always hesitate to buy books that are categorized as "Christian" since you never know what kind of use the Christian theme is going to be--preachy, weepy, too holy, irreverent, etc. This one is just right.
The main character, Amanda, is a widow of a very thorough police detective. He shared his police detecting skills with her all their married life to the point that she can almost hear his voice when she remembers how he spoke to her with lessons on investigating.
For some reason, she keeps finding dead bodies on her doorstep. She doesn't know why but it has happened three times. She moves them to the police station door if possible so their deaths will be investigated officially by the police, but she also feels a responsibility to do some investigating on her own to help those who were left to her care.
This book is about the third time it happens and she finds a young man on her front porch. The story gets more interesting when she fails to find a safe place to put the body and has to drive around with it in her back seat under daffodil bulbs most of the night and into next morning.
In the process of solving the case she runs into gunmen, people running her off the road, getting shot at with rifles--in other words--a great time is had by all.
What I like best is that when she has a problem she prays about it; she prays when sirens go by for the people involved and the workers who will be faced with emergency situations. (I do that too!) She knows the Lord's voice and follows it worrying if she really heard it correctly (me too!) and comes out safely in the end. That is real life to me--no thundering voice from above or great miracles--just help with daily problems and healing of the heart.
I hope there are more Amanda stories and maybe her and her new gentleman friend can solve lots of crimes together.
