    What a fascinating book I never had a clue about who the killer was or their motivation The mystery was a little darker than a typical cozy, but still well done I mostly liked the MC s, a Presbyterian church secretary and a rabbi I was a little annoyed with Cindy feeling so unsafe, but I might be that way, too, if I was ever put in that situation By the end, though, she had found her inner strength to help catch the killer I liked how the author touched on the two religions, Christia What a fascinating book I never had a clue about who the killer was or their motivation The mystery was a little darker than a typical cozy, but still well done I mostly liked the MC s, a Presbyterian church secretary and a rabbi I was a little annoyed with Cindy feeling so unsafe, but I might be that way, too, if I was ever put in that situation By the end, though, she had found her inner strength to help catch the killer I liked how the author touched on the two religions, Christian and Jewish It wasn t preachy at all, just informative I look forward to other books in this series to see how the two MC s team up again

    I downloaded this nook book when it was a free offering from Abingdon in late October There are so many free books that it takes a long time for me to get around to reading those I ve already downloaded, but I was attracted to this book because it was a Christian murder mystery, which is what I m writing.The reviews I ve read of this book tend to be at one extreme or the other Readers either love it or hate it Generally those who hate it object to the number of murders for a Christian book T I downloaded this nook book when it was a free offering from Abingdon in late October There are so many free books that it takes a long time for me to get around to reading those I ve already downloaded, but I was attracted to this book because it was a Christian murder mystery, which is what I m writing.The reviews I ve read of this book tend to be at one extreme or the other Readers either love it or hate it Generally those who hate it object to the number of murders for a Christian book That s almost right The real problem is that this book is in a cozy voice, which means the murder usually takes place offstage, there s not a lot of violence, and the stories are generally character driven Villains aren t really, really bad guys in cozies At least, we don t feel like they re bad guys through most of the book But the murderer in this book is a serial killer who not only kills dozens of people in this book, but has killed multiple people in other cities before Serial killers and cozy mysteries don t fit together well The reader is left with this disjointed feeling My best description of how I felt when I finished the book was Huh The story is told from three different viewpoints Cindy, a church secretary, Jeremiah, a rabbi, and Mark, a police detective Unfortunately, no matter which point of view a chapter is told from, they all sound alike At first I thought the author was slipping out of the point of view of one character into that of another but theI read, theI realized that wasn t true If a story is told fromthan one point of view, each character has to be reflected in the language, the sentence structure, and the attitudes of the telling of events That wasn t the case in this book.Last of all, there s a concept attributed to the Russian playwright Anton Chekov which roughly states that if you have a gun on the wall in the first act, you d better have someone use it by the third act The Lord is My Shepherd violates the converse of this, i.e., if you have a gun in the third act, you d better set it up in the first act It s not a gun in this book, but something unlikely happens without having any reason given either in the current scene or, better yet, having been set up earlier in the book I don t want to spoil the plot by explaining too much, but that kind of thing made me immediately downgrade my opinion of the story.I have mixed feelings about this mystery It s not a bad book, but the writing level isn t quite there yet I can see where the author might develop into a good mystery writer, but this novel didn t appeal to me enough to make me want to read future books of hers

  7. Cathy Daniel Cathy Daniel says:

    Really good start to this series I adored the main characters I read this book in one evening My only complaint is it is really grisly for a cozy I lost track of how many died and it was very described the grisly scenes I had to skim some I m really hoping the next book isn t as grisly.


  8. Gale Wilkinson Gale Wilkinson says:

    This mystery is not your usual cozy The Lord Is My Shepherd, Book 1 of the Psalm 23 Mysteries, is what s considered Christian fiction I normally don t read books labeled as such because the ones I ve picked up are too preachy and usually in a way that doesn t reflect my faith However, this book was a pleasant surprise Author Debbie Vigui deftly blends elements from many popular genres mystery, thriller, humor, and even a touch of romance in the awareness and tension between a rabbi and a This mystery is not your usual cozy The Lord Is My Shepherd, Book 1 of the Psalm 23 Mysteries, is what s considered Christian fiction I normally don t read books labeled as such because the ones I ve picked up are too preachy and usually in a way that doesn t reflect my faith However, this book was a pleasant surprise Author Debbie Vigui deftly blends elements from many popular genres mystery, thriller, humor, and even a touch of romance in the awareness and tension between a rabbi and a Protestant church secretary She even manages to inject a believable faith into the story via the characterizations of Jeremiah and Cindy without being preachy or upsetting the balance of the story.Debbie Vigui , best known as a fantasy and YA author, takes on the mystery genre in her own style What you get is a nice cozy but with a serial killer plot which surprised me since this was published by Abingdon Press Admittedly, I don t read what is generally called Christian fiction, but this mystery sounded promising, and, for the most part, it did not disappoint.From the opening sentence, More than anything, Cindy Preston hated Mondays, this cozy will keep you entertained and guessing until the killer is revealed Even then, there are still a few surprises.First Shepherd Presbyterian Church secretary Cindy Preston literally stumbles over a dead body in the sanctuary of her church When Rabbi Jeremiah Silverman at the synagogue next door hears her screaming, he races to her rescue.Thus begins an odd friendship between Cindy and the Israeli born Silverman The confluence of Christian Holy Week and Passover brings out the worst in the killer, and Cindy seems to be on the scene far too often She, Jeremiah, and police Detective Mark Walters try to solve the mystery while the killer escalates.I had only one other quibble, and that was with the characterization of the protagonist Cindy cries A lot Maybe it s because I m not given to weeping in fear or stress, but that got to me a little I reached the point where I wanted Cindy to woman up and get going She did reach that point and proceeded to hang in there in spite of everything that was happening to her, and she solved the mystery and saved the day.Now, she also screams a lot, but that s kind of funny Perhaps the author purposely had her as a screamer because Jeremiah came running each time Those scenes reminded me of a golden age screwball comedy I don t want to give anything away, but in Book 2, an excerpt of which is given at the end of this book, Cindy hasn t seen Jeremiah since the murders were solved Then, one evening she and he happen to be at the same party, and, you guessed it, she stumbles over a dead body, screams, and Jeremiah dashes in Once again, the game is afoot.In ConclusionThis is a book that any mystery reader would enjoy
