    "Whiny, preachy, dissappointing"

    I thought I was getting a nice cozy mystery. Imagine someone breaking into houses and redecorating them. Sounds like a hoot.
    What I got was a whiny, boring piece of Christian fiction that takes a long time to end. The main character is a Christian writer who can't seem to get on the bestseller list and whines about it all through the book. She also has her mother inlaw and daughter, both widows, like herself living with her. This has so many possibilities but sadly went nowhere. Plus, more whining. The mystery wasn't even mentioned till the third chapter or so. And not a lot after that. I didn't really want to finish the book, but I did want to find out who was behind the break ins. Sadly, even the ending was pretty senseless.
    This book is about this woman and her problems and how everything happens for a reason and how God has a plan...and that's it. If you are looking for a good mystery then skip this.

    "nice but not what I would classify a Mystery."
    Would you try another book from Lori Copeland and/or Cristine McMurdo-Wallis?

    I will read the ones I have as I like inspirational books but these are classified as mystery's and it's not a typical mystery. At times I felt the plot dragged a bit. there were spots of humor and "real life experiences" that were realistic.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lori Copeland again?

    maybe


    What aspect of Cristine McMurdo-Wallis’s performance would you have changed?

    she was pretty good


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe move it to fiction not mystery series
