Author J.B. Hawkerabout this book: How does a single clergywoman and former pastor's wife make the transition to the pastorate of a new small town church and earn the loyalty and respect of her congregation while dead bodies keep turning up in her new church?

The Reverend Doctor Merrill Bishop must work through preconceptions and out-dated attitudes while still mourning the loss of her pastor husband and facing the unexpected challenge of raising her newly orphaned nephew. The last thing she needs is a series of mysterious deaths right on her doorstep.

Thanks to her faith and her new friends of the First Ladies Club, she is able to face each new surprise with courage and optimism.

The arrival on the scene of a handsome Seattle reporter, a friend of her brother, gives Merrill even more to think about as she adjusts to her new life in the small Oregon seaside community.
