A.R. Ashworth
5.0 out of 5 stars  A dang good read!
June 22, 2019
Format: Paperback
MURDER ON THE THIRD TRY is a page turning mystery-thriller that delighted me with each turn of the page. You might think a few murders involving a pastor who is not what he seems, a feisty bar-owner with a mind of her own, a small-town Texas sheriff, and a bucketful of loony supporting characters might be a recipe for a standard cozy full of tired tropes and cardboard characters. Right?

Wrong! Gresham is a master story-teller with a clear voice, a light touch, an unerring eye for human frailty, and a seriously wicked sense of humor. She crafts intricate plot lines, creates compelling characters, wrings out a few good twists, and leads us down a bluebonnet-lined path to a stunning and completely unexpected ending.

I confidently recommend this book, as well as the previous two books in the Pastor Matt Hayden series.

From the Author

The Pastor Matt Hayden Mystery Series is my fun way of looking at topics that are very important to me. First and foremost is that people have created their own story to explain how and why they live. This includes murderers, victims and regular folk (if there is such a human). When these paths cross, what happens? Why does it happen? I wanted to explore that in my writing. I grew up a preacher's kid (I prefer the term, "theological offspring" but that never caught on) and I observed the good and the sad side of church-going folk. I have something to say about what I experienced.
   I've always love a good whodunnit. I devoured the books by Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, then moved on to Tom Clancy and James Patterson and my now favorite, J.D. Robb. I wanted to do what these authors do. Create characters, conflict, crime, action, and justice on the page at such a pace you can't put the book down.
   I hope you enjoy Murder on the Third Try. It is the third book in the Pastor Matt Hayden Mystery Series. Previous books include The Preacher's First Murder and Murder in the Second Pew.
