Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Presbyterian church secretary Cindy Preston and rabbi Jeremiah Silverman, introduced in The Lord Is My Shepherd (2010), team up again to solve another murder. This time the deceased is the personal assistant to Joseph Tyler, a wealthy member of Cindy’s church who’s launching a new program to pair up homeless people with rescue dogs. Cindy and Jeremiah are trying to stay out of the way of the investigation of the assistant’s murder—their last amateur-sleuthing foray landed them in the sights of a serial killer—but when homeless people begin getting killed and their dogs stolen, keeping out of it is no longer an option. Cindy and Jeremiah are two extremely likable protagonists, and the story is elaborate enough to keep readers interested but not so convoluted as to weigh the novel down. Though this is no cozy, the author does have a light touch—the danger to our heroes is real, but we’re never in any doubt that they’ll scrape through. --David Pitt

Format: Paperback
"I Shall Not Want" is a fun cozy mystery. This book is the second in the series, but you don't need to read the first book in order to understand this one. However, this book promptly revealed who the murderer was in the previous novel, so you'll want to read the first novel before this one if you're intending to read it.

There's an underlying humor to this mystery, and the characters were engaging and interesting. I figured out whodunit long before the characters did (due to understanding mystery forms, not because the characters overlooked obvious clues), but the writing was good enough to keep me reading and enjoying it.

While the "police stuff" was generally good (and safely vague), I did wonder about the scene where two men entered a dark, apparently deserted morgue to set the corpse of a murder victim on an examination table and promptly left. Wouldn't they need to process the body (paperwork) and refrigerate it until it was time to examine the body?

Though the main characters were a church secretary, a rabbi, and an atheist police detective, there was very little religious content. Certainly, none of the characters tried to convert each other.

I was reading an advanced reader copy, so this may be changed in the final version. However, several times the rabbi referred to God as "Jehovah" in his casual conversations. First, that's not the Hebrew spelling of God's name. Second, he also referred to God as "Yahweh" once, near the end. Third, Jews--even those not highly devout--don't casually refer to God by His personal name. They even write "G-d" rather than "God" when referring to Him. Also, when asked to pray before the Thanksgiving dinner was eaten, the rabbi gave a very Christian-style prayer rather than a Jewish one.

A dog can be quite the gift. But not much of one when it's paired with murder. "I Shall Not Want" tells of a string of murders of homeless people as they were granted a dog by a charity organization. Joseph Tyler and Cindy find themselves charged with getting behind the meaning of these murders, a challenge that doesn't seem as it will be easy, as the truth has plenty of reason to keep itself hidden. "I Shall Not Want" is a riveting mystery that will keep the pages turning.

I SHALL NOT WANT charms the reader especially someone who belongs to a religious organization. The main character is a church secretary who gets entangled in a series of murders happening citywide! The author deftly carries the characters thru this mystery novel with a light wit and allows the reader to become a behind-the-scenes onlooker!

The plot was okay but the main character was weak in so many ways. I didn't like the many references throughout the book to the previous book because I didn't read the first one. I'll read the next one if the price is right but it's not at the top of my list.

This is the only book I have read in this series or by this author. I liked it, it kept me involved and provided an entertaining mystery. If you are looking for preachy "Christian" action, this is not it. The main character is a Christian but you never see much of her actually worshipping, just trying to cope with the workings of a church office, her pastor never makes an appearance, and we see more of the rabbi next door who obviously is not really a rabbi, or not just a rabbi. His myterious past is not revealed but future books may or may not expose more information on that. I will read more of her work but wonder if the author ever really spends much time either in a church or a synagogue. What I do like is that it is an enjoyable read w/o being bothered by sex and language, and there are not enough books like that which are not also sometimes to preachy.

...to keep real diamonds in the vault."

Even a woman? Oh really? EVEN A WOMAN?

I can't remember the last time I read something this insulting. In contemporary genre fiction, no less.

That line, my Amazon friends, was delivered by a police detective. He's a recurring character and one of the good guys in this series. After all, he got his wife a dog because he works so much. Good trade, I think.

Jeremiah the rabbi attends an charity evening function on a Friday evening followed by a non-emergency telephone call to Cindy on the Sabbath. Huh?

Sorry. This was my first and last Psalm 23 book. Call me a heathen.

I love mysteries, and this second book in the series did not disappoint. Church secretary, Cindy, again finds herself embroiled in a mystery as the bodies of homeless people start piling up, and the dogs they were given at a charity event turn up missing. Rabbi Jeremiah tries very hard to stay out of the fray, but he ends up in the middle of it, despite his best efforts. The mystery behind the rabbi deepens considerably in this book, and we the readers are left wondering just who is this Jeremiah.
Just like the first book, the author manages to keep any gore at a minimum which makes the story thoroughly delightful. I can handle the more detailed mysteries and thrillers, but to have a nice, light mystery is such a welcome change. Although a reader will be perfectly able to follow this story without reading the first in the series, I highly recommend you do so. It will make this one even better.
