Saints Preserve Us Publisher's Summary

Winner of the Florida Writer's Association Royal Palm Award for Best Mystery.

Where's Lorena Alger? This is what everyone in Ash Lake, Florida is asking about their most famous resident - a young girl about to be canonized as a saint, a young girl who hasn't moved from her grave in over 150 years. Now she is gone, and her grave is now occupied by the fresher corpse of the cemetery caretaker.

Great grandniece Ronnie Lord is determined to aid the town sheriff in Lorena's safe return. She finds it isn't an easy task when obstacles like a nosy reporter and stubborn relatives get in the way. Meanwhile, as an object of ransom tucked away in a single-wide trailer belonging to two petty thieves, Lorena is in for the adventure of her...well, death.

If you enjoy this book, be sure to check out the sequel, Pray for Us Sinners.

    Allayne Witt was the "local girl made good" of Ash Lake, Florida. One of daytime's most popular stars, Allayne wins further admiration for her fight with breast cancer, and high school friends Ronnie Lord and sister Gina are happy to assist with her needs, despite the chaos involved in preparing for Lorena Alger's canonization. When Allayne unexpectedly dies, however, her mother Lorraine is convinced a murder got to the star before the cancer did.
