15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 29, 2006
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Aggie Sloan-Wilcox knows that as a minister's wife, she can't get involved in too many scandals. That's why she's trying to put that whole finding a naked body on the front porch thing behind her. As part of that effort, she's hosting a Christmas open house for everyone in the congregation.

Things won't be as easy for her as she had hoped, however. Her free spirited mother, Junie, has planned a family reunion without consulting Aggie. Everyone is scheduled to arrive in time for the party. Still, Aggie is delighted to see her sisters, Sid and Vel and figures Junie's eccentricities won't be too much of a problem. However, Junie shows up with a bit of a surprise, their foster sister Ginger.

Ginger has a way of making enemies wherever she goes. She manipulative and controlling while appearing sweet on the outside. Junie has never seen this, but Sid was Ginger's victim one too many times during childhood, and their old rivalry leaps to life immediately, making the church's new punch bowl a causality.

Things only get worse when Ginger is murdered on Christmas Eve and her body left at the town's nativity scene. Sid doesn't have an alibi, so naturally, she becomes the chief suspect. Aggie can't stand by and let Sid take the fall, so she begins looking into Ginger's past. This turns up more new suspects then Aggie could ever hope to eliminate. Can she sort through them to find the killer before Sid goes to jail?

While I enjoyed the first entry in this series, I absolutely loved this one. Aggie and her family are very real people who leap off the page and into your hearts. The plot moves forward quickly and had me confused until the end. The sub-plots involving Aggie's daughters didn't slow things down and added to the fun.

The next book in this series can't get here fast enough for me. I highly recommend this mystery for cozy fans.

11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Armchair Interviews on December 7, 2006
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Family drama can be difficult in the best of times and downright deadly when combined with any holiday season, including Christmas.

In Emerald Springs, Ohio, Aggie Sloan-Wilcox (a minister's wife) is preparing for the arrival her half-sisters Sid and Vel and her flamboyant and free-spirited mother, Junie Bluebird, who has a big surprise for her daughters. And that surprise is Ginger, their manipulative, personality-disordered foster sister. Let the games begin. The game of murder, that is.

Ginger turns up dead, Sid is the prime suspect and Aggie must find the murderer in order to save her beloved sister. But with so many suspects (since Ginger 'ticked' off most everyone she'd ever met), it might be impossible.

This is the first Emilie Richards novel I've read and it won't be the last. I love her sharp, quirky voice, her rich and crazy characters and I love that she's mixed murder and mayhem with the church. It turns out religion and murder can make compatible bedfellows.

Armchair Interviews says: Let There Be Suspects is a delicious Christmas romp into the murderous minds of those that live and visit Emerald Springs, Ohio. You'll want more of Emilie Richards.

Just finished this second in Richard's new Ministry is Murder series. I am a cozy mystery addict, but this series is already my favorite of all times. Emilie packs unique characters in a page-turning plot and manages to make me belly laugh along the way. Absolutely delightful. I didn't want this book to end, and I can't wait until the next one in the series.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dawn Dowdle VINE VOICE on February 2, 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
It's almost Christmas, and Aggie Sloan-Wilcox's mom, Junie, and sisters, Sid and Vel, arrive for a holiday family reunion. Only Junie arrives with their former foster sister Ginger. Ginger and Sid get along like vinegar and water. Ginger is very manipulative and controlling while coming off as sweet to those who don't know her so well. Unfortunately Junie has always seen the sweet side of her. Sid has been Ginger's victim too many times to see the sweet side.

Sid and Ginger's rivalry surfaces immediately, and when Ginger turns up dead, Sid is the logical suspect. Aggie knows Sid couldn't have killed her, so she sets out to find the real murderer before the police arrest Sid. Can she do so without putting herself or her family in danger? And without putting her husband's position in jeopardy?

Aggie is a fun character. The fact that she is a pastor's wife really adds to her sleuthing. Her family and all their quirks really adds to the story. Often families get lost in the story as the mother sleuths. Not so in this series. And the sub-plots don't detract from the story at all. In fact they enhance it and make it a well crafted mystery with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing to the end. I highly recommend this book and the whole series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you are not familiar with the writing of Emilie Richards get on board with Let There Be Suspects. It's funny and heartwarming and so well written I'm sure you'll be an immediate fan. This is the second in the Ministry is Murder series where mildmannered Aggie Sloan-Wilcox deals with the everyday life of being a Minister's wife raising a family, dealing with relatives and busybody paritioners and oh yes solves murder in her spare time.

Be prepared to laugh out loud while you read this book.
