This review is from: Let There Be Suspects (Ministry Is Murder Mystery) (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.
