I received a copy of A SAINTLY KILLING by Martha Ockley from Lion Hudson via Kregel in exchange for an honest review. It is a Faith Morgan Mystery, third in the series. I have read the first two installments in the series and enjoyed them tremendously, so I was thrilled to sink my teeth into this one. I knew I would encounter Christian fiction coated with edge of your seat excitement and realistic characters. I wasn’t disappointed at all.
Faith Morgan is the vicar of Saint James Church. Sal Hankley is preparing the cover for the church’s memorial booklet when she is killed. I loved the twists and turns – even Faith is suspected of being the murderer! I enjoy mysteries, but I can never guess the truth until the end. This was another one of those instances, but it did not make it any less enjoyable.
The quaint English village adds a sweet aspect to the setting. You really feel as if you are part of the neighborhood.
I highly recommend this to fans of Christian fiction and murder mysteries. Martha Ockley is excellent at painting vivid scenes and memorable characters. I hope to see more Faith Morgan mysteries coming soon!
