Many, many years ago I came across a book by a new author, Kate Charles, and bought it because it was an ecclesiastical whodunnit – a genre of which I am particularly fond. As soon as I read it I knew that this author knew church – in fact, knew my church. All the characters were there and dialogues that I could practically lip-sync with. I’ve read them all and waited with bated breath for the next one to come out. Ages ago I saw the latest Secret Sins was out in hardback and it has been a long wait till the paperback version hit Amazon. But, dear reader, it arrived on Saturday and I’ve finished it already. Really wish I’d paced myself better but it just had to be read right now!
I think some of her earlier ones are out of print now but if you find any, get them and you won’t be disappointed. Each one is a story on its own, but some characters do continue in a few of them.
