This is something like a Cozy Mystery, but not entirely. A very well-written book that covers some really good points, especially for dog lovers.
Cindy Preston loved the end of the week, especially Fridays. She thought of them as "Anything Can Happen Fridays." Her job is secretary at a church and her position was far more intriguing than most people imagined. The holidays were coming up (Thanksgiving and Christmas) and a friend of Cindy's, Joseph Tyler, one of the church members has organized a new charity providing homeless people with rescue dogs to love and care for. Joseph is having a big event at his house to kick off the charity.
Protestors are gathering to stop it and sadly, one by one, the homeless people are being murdered and their dogs have been stolen. Cindy and Jeremiah Silverman, a Rabbi at the local Synagogue, next to the Church where Cindy is secretary decide to investigate and run into some interesting people. At the top of their list is a millionaire who has prize-winning dogs and is holding a grudge against the charity and someone much closer to Joseph who has something to hide. Cindy and Jeremiah are trying to hurry and find the killer before he kills again and are becoming more and more attracted to each other.
This book is second in the Psalm 23 series the first being "The Lord is My Shepherd" also a very good read. I'm a dog lover so really liked the premise of the book and the characters. I'm a big fan of Cozy Mysteries but, this one is a little more intense than some of the previous ones that I've read but, I highly recommend it to you readers. Cindy and Jeremiah are very good sleuths and have a lot in common in spite of their religious differences. Try it, you'll like it. Enjoy, and I'll talk to you soon.
