Earl, Gloria and Jenny just can’t mind their own business! But what else are they to do? They know their pastor didn’t kill that physic even though they were the only two in the room and the murder weapon was found in the pastor’s pocket. They just have to prove it!

It was just supposed to be a meeting to work out their differences, but the pastor and the physic are like oil and water! Of course, it seems that everyone is angry with the physic. The police want to know how he knew that the elderly weren’t dying of natural causes. The producer wants to know why he’s planning to dump her. The author wants to know which bigger name the physic’s planning to get to write his story.

The pastor’s flock only wants to know how they’re supposed to follow a murderer…

My Thoughts

This book is a bit hard for me to review. Generally, I inhale books but I really had a rough time getting into this one. After I was about halfway through, though, I just couldn’t put it down. That’s when I remembered that the same thing happened in the last Hometown Mystery book I read. So I thought it through, the books are a bit dry and sort-of remind me of a Poirot or Columbo episode/novel where you’re wondering why on earth you keep watching/reading and then suddenly wondering when the next one starts.

  1. I have this on netgalley because I love mysteries but I didn't really know anything about. I hope I'll like it because I do like Poirot and Columbo.

  2. Not sure it's for me but I liked your honest review and for some reason I like the simplicity of this cover.
