Another book review

Just finished The Tentmaker by Michelle Blake. I can’t remember who recommended it but it might have been the Church Times article about clerical whodunnits. It tells the story about an Episcopal priest, Lily, who is a tentmaker, ie a priest who makes a living outside the church. However she is called in to become interim priest for a wealthy Boston parish after their priest dies and becomes involved in a web of deceit and lies.

The author certainly knows the Episcopal church but I did find it a tad depressing. Not a lot of the Piskie humour we know and love in Scotland, that’s for sure.

  1. Glad you’ve offered up her name again. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stood in a bookshop thinking — OK, now, what was her name?… something literary… B… for Brighton Rock, look under G for Green…

    Though quite how I forgot to look under B for Tiger I don’t know.

  2. Oooh, someone else who thinks the way I do. How refreshing. Actually I’ve taken to writing them down in my phone now because I’ve spent so long trying to remember B for Tiger.
