My week has been taxing with many people appointments and a four hour session with elders and deacons last evening.
Ryan Griffin, of Desiring God, makes us think well and deeply about what it truly means to confess our sins to one another in a way that brings true forgiveness and relief to our souls. Robert George, professor at Princeton, said recently at the National Catholic prayer breakfast, that being a Christian in our day and in our culture was now socially unacceptable.

About the Book – Faith Morgan, former policewoman and vicar of the small English village of Little Worthy, goes to visit one of her parishioners at his farm, only to discover the house surrounded by police cars. Though busy with preparations for Christmas, Faith is called on to investigate when it’s found out that the victim is also a member of her congregation—Lucas Kemp, a member of the choir. Faith’s informal inquiries lead her to uncover a hotbed of tensions and romantic rivalries in the choir, questions about drugs, and a run-in with an unsavory uncle—which leads to a dramatic rescue by Ben, Faith’s former detective partner and ex-boyfriend. In the tradition of Father Brown and Miss Marple, The Advent of Murder brings readers an authentic picture of English rural and church life combined with a satisfying mystery that will keep readers guessing until the end. About the Author – Martha Ockley lives in the North-East of England and has close links with the church, having grown up as the daughter of a minister. Rebecca Jenkins began making up stories as a child to entertain her sister after the lights were turned out in the room they shared. Rebecca enjoys writing in all its forms – she has worked as an editor and a book doctor, teaches creative writing, and served as Royal Literary Fund Fellow at York St John University (2009-2011). My Review – Reading a book which is second in a series, and not having read the first, makes the task of reviewing just that much more difficult.
I think this is also why I found the opening chapters of ‘The Advent of Murder’ to move a bit slowly, even though the reader is thrown into the ‘case’ within the first few pages. All in all, an enjoyable read; good for a cold, winter’s night (it’s early December here in southern Minnesota and the temps this late fall are dipping below zero on a regular basis) along with a hot cup of tea or chocolate.

All too soon, Doyle’s somewhat unwilling gentle probing into the case begins to cause the finger of suspicion to turn towards him. Sherlock Holmes has fascinated readers ever since he first burst into fiction, over one hundred years ago. About the Author – After a successful career at the BBC and ITV, as a script writer, editor and then Commissioning executive, Martin Allison Booth worked for OFCOM before training as an Anglican priest. Also, as will have been pointed out in other reviews, while this book is published by Lion Fiction and distributed through America via Kregel, I still cannot classify this as primarily Christian fiction.

About the book – Grieving the loss of wife and mother, Aidan and Melangell visit the renowned spiritual retreat center on the British island of Lindisfarne so Aidan can share with bright eight-year-old Melangell one of the places that inspired Jenny to write her books. There they meet up with Jenny’s friend Lucy, a Methodist minister, who is teaching a course on the local Northumbrian saints. About the author – Fay Sampson is a widely published author with a particular interest in fantasy and Celtic history. Set on the Isle of Lindisfarne, Sampson incorporates good history even as she writes about a modern-day murder.

In this first book of a new, page-turning series, a woman will be brought to her limits before she finally recognizes the movement of the Holy Spirit and reconnects with the source of true peace.
About the Author–– Heather James is the author of the Lure of the Serpent Series, suspense novels that pack quick wit into the high heels of attorney turned vigilante, Evelyn Barrett. In addition, Heather is a practicing lawyer in California and a columnist with The Bakersfield Californian. There have been many people matters at church, meetings and then there’s just all the regular ministry matters. Fascinating that the group filing suit to get them personhood had done their background research on the judges, but still failed to convince some very animal-friendly judicial benches.
At the age of 8 she discovered the adventures of the Scarlett Pimpernel by Baroness D’Orcy.
Drawing on a large collection of images and prints, she gives a range of talks and lectures on a variety of subjects from the story of the first London Olympics to Going to the Theatre in Jane Austen’s Time. However, even though author Martha Ockley did quite a good job of seeking to have book #2 stand alone, I did find the characters and a few of the relationships from book #1 carrying over and therefore not fully explained. I didn’t give up on it (and not simply because I had to write a review; trust me, there are books I’ve given up on and still written the review). Sit back, watch Faith Morgan (the key character) struggle to ‘fit’ into her new role as a vicar (having served as a police officer) and with a variety of relationships, both parishioners and men who come across her path, all the while trying to ‘pull off’ all the traditional matters for Christmas in a local parish AND seeing what she can do to help the local police solve a murder mystery. Taking a much needed holiday, Doyle flees to a picturesque village in Switzerland nestled beneath the imposing Reichenbach Falls.
In this novel, the first in a trilogy, we meet his author and discover the difficult relationship between them. Lucy has brought Rachel, a troubled teenager, to the Holy Island in hopes that the remoteness and peace of the location will help her.
As investigators and Rachel’s “friends” come to the island, Aidan and Lucy learn more about Rachel, and Lucy’s past as a policewoman is revealed. Masterfully told by award-winning author Fay Sampson, Death on Lindisfarne explores the complicated motivations of fallen people against the backdrop of ancient holiness. She has been shortlisted for the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize on three occasions and is a winner of the Barco de Vapor award. Sampson’s first in the Aidan Mysteries series, The Hunted Hare back in November of 2012.
The Gosnell case involves protestors who, for years, stood outside 3801 Lancaster and prayed, warning people about what was taking place inside. The Gosnell case involves gruesome details about living, viable babies having their spinal cords “snipped” outside the womb. The Gosnell case exposes the disproportionate number of abortion clinics in inner cities and the disproportionate number of abortions among minority groups.
The Gosnell case competes with recent stories about states enacting broad laws banning many abortions.
The two detectives…I’m wondering if, as a practicing lawyer, James has run across these two characters.
Now that the case is personal, Evelyn will stop at nothing to seek her own version of justice. If our culture of death is not stopped, God will have given us over to our own thinking…and that is a terrible thought. The stories sparked her love of horse-riding heroes in breeches and boots and prompted her to begin collecting contemporary diaries and books about the war generation at the turn of the 1800s.
Character traits & development may seem just a tad more shallow because the author may have forgotten that the reader hasn’t read volume one and therefore, not quite as familiar with each continuing character.


I don’t think this took away from the plot, but it kept me on my toes a bit more than usual when reading a fictional novel. There he hopes to find anonymity, but even in this beautiful rural setting, peace eludes him when he finds himself immediately recognized by a fan who pressures him into looking into the death of a fellow visitor.
Although able to pen the character of Sherlock, he soon begins to learn he does not share his leading creation’s characteristics, but rather Watson’s. The sites, the sounds, the people involved, even though long since dead, come alive as Lucy, the tour instructor and Methodist minister, leads a widely-varied group of people through this adventure.
Not just any old kind of evil, but the rank, malodorous stench of those who molest and abuse children. Yet we’re not given the ability to detect those rulers, authorities and cosmic powers simply by smell (or by sight or basically any other physical means).
When another girl goes missing, Evelyn plows forward, ignoring the warnings from police detectives, the pleas of her grief-stricken husband, and the strange, almost supernatural tingles that tug at her.
So here are some rapid fire thoughts, a few links from others I think are definitely worth your time and reading.
I almost never get surprised or caught off guard by anything people do any more, but tattooed eyeliner? Some series, if not written intentionally to appear as ‘stand alone’ novels, come across this way in spades.
There was plot twist gold to be found well into this work and the wealth mined from that perseverance paid off. But, I would recommend to Booth that he do an opening Introduction or first chapter of some action and then return to Conan Doyle’s trip to Switzerland. Yet I want something more obvious about the Christian faith once delivered set in the story line. As delighted as I was with that book, I was thrilled to be asked to review Death on Lindisfarne, the second in the Aidan Mystery series. It heightens it for me because now I spend the rest of the book trying to figure out how the author is going to get to the conclusion. She incorporates enough characters to fill her books with the notion that just about anyone could have committed this heinous crime (with the exception of little eight-year-old Melangell Davison, and possibly her father, Aidan). But as she follows the stench of evil, Evelyn learns that the hardest thing she will have to face may not be the death of her child after all. Even if it is the main character struggling with his faith, having left a branch of the church, I don’t care. We’re all just a bag of chemicals living and walking around this planet for a few short years. Even tip the hand at something toward the outcome and leave the reader in suspense as to how the main character can possibly manage to pull off the solution. It is not an easy task to measure up to high expectations with a sequel, but I was not disappointed at all.
Amid a million questions she cannot answer, Evelyn knows one thing for sure: this murderer must be punished for his crime. It’s supposed to hurt, warning you of objects that could poke your eyes out…like sharp needles filled with ink! A huge mark in his favor, however––when he and Evelyn separate and she’s certain a divorce is immanent, he fights for their marriage.
