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.Read more ›
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.
Like "The Lord is My Shepherd", church secretary Cindy really just wants to lead a quiet, SAFE life. But when she stumbles into another murderous plot, she's anything but safe.
Her friendship-under-fire with Rabbi Jeremiah has been almost non-existent since Easter; she in her circle and he in his. But they find themselves again hunting a killer before it's too late.
The depiction of temple doings and church workings is imperfect, but not a deal-breaker; it's a *story*, after all. I think there were fewer bodies than in the first installment. I enjoyed the book.
