Novels like this prove that all talented authors aren't given contracts by big publishers. Granted, there were quite a few typos (maybe because I read the e-book, not the print one, but still), but the story was well-written for the most part, interesting, quick, enjoyable, clean, and memorable. My only other caveat is that the author, imho, spent too much ink on the joys of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and trout fishing. Understandably, Hilpert wanted the reader to understand the character's enjoyment of the sport as well as the nature surrounding him, but sometimes it dragged on too much for me.
Eric Wilson, an author I avidly read and follow, suggested this novel as a post on Facebook, and I'm so glad he did. I will definitely pick up the next installment in the Lake Superior series.
The main character Jonah is a Pastor like you've never seen. He has a witty personality, listens to all genres of music except rap of course, can kick some serious booty, and apparently can cook like a chef. I wish he was a real Pastor because I would definitely go to his church. He is not a stereotypical Pastor and I loved that about him. He was also very funny and incredibly smart. I liked that he went to extreme lengths to prove the innocence of one of his church members. Even when it put his own life at risk. He is quite good at police work. Its a shame he didn't take his mothers advice and become a cop. I liked getting to see all aspects of Jonah's life and getting to know him personally.
I also liked Chief Jensen who seemed to be a good friend of Jonah's. I did like Leyla, but then by the end of the book I didn't. I would have forgiven her but not want anything to do with her. I could not stand Officer Grantz and Burton. although Burton finally changed at the end. This book had great characters, the writing made this book interesting and captivating, and the story was excellent.
I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and had a lot mystery to around. It was a bit of struggle to figure out who the killer was and why.
Tom Hilpert has a knack of handling Christian (or "inspirational" if you prefer) fiction without it getting messy or saccharine-sweet, yet leaving a great message with the reader. As for the plot--hey, I'm a writer of medical thrillers, and pretty good about guessing the outcome, yet Hilpert had me stumped for much of the book.
I'm going to read the others in the series. Bravo, Tom Hilpert.
Pastor Borden gets involved in a murder mystery because one of his parishioners is accused of commiting a murder and the pastor knows that he is innocent. The problem is that he got this knowledge through his profession, thus it is privileged information, and the accused does not want to have it divulged. So the good pastor has to try to find the murderer himself.
The rather unusual pastor Borden is a likeable character, with a lot of wit and humour and I really enjoyed this story. Of course there are some references to the Christian faith and the Bible, it sort of comes with the territory when the protagonist is a minister, but it is not really a religious story. There is a bit of romance involving a lady reporter whose job it is to cover the story for a local TV channel.
A lot of fishing and cooking is going on in this story and especially the fishing expeditions are described in rather too much detail, but all in all it was a very nice read and not loaded with typos as so many other self-published Kindle novels.
