(The first book in the Reverend Joy Mystery series)
A novel by

Reverend Joy Norton is a timid city girl, and she's never been the primary priest in any parish. When her bishop sends her out to a remote back-country church, she doubts both her ability and her suitability. Those doubts grow when she hears of the mysterious death of her predecessor. But from the first encounter with her congregation -- having her little car rescued from a muddy ditch, she finds herself deeply involved with her parishioners and touched by their qualities and eccentricities. Which makes it worse for her to think that one of the people she's coming to care for murdered the previous priest...

Praise for this book

"This mystery kept me up all night while i read it through twice! Like a good cozy, even when you know the solutions, you want to spend more time with the characters. All i can say is, Dave Freer better have sequels planned." - Sarah A Hoyt
