Abingdon Press has done it again, they have taken an author with a great idea for a unique story and given them the format to find an audience to entertain. Debbie does not let us down with her new book "The Lord is My Shepherd". This book is wonderful! Fantastic characters, intriguing plot that pulls us in and really gets in your head and twists and turns that just don't quit.
I first loved Debbie's writing when I read her young adult Sweet Seasons series (as did my daughter and her friends). But now she has firmly entrenched herself in the regular adult market with the Psalm 23 series.
Cindy is a church secretary who's life is turned upside down when she trips over a dead body in the sanctuary. The biggest issue is that it is only the beginning and things are escalating. The killer seems to be putting on a show with Cindy as the audience so she starts doing some investigating of her own in an effort to put an end to the horror unfolding around her. Debbie keeps the pace very brisk in this book and I really couldn't put it down. I kept guessing up to the end and just enjoyed this book immensely!

ABOUT THE BOOK
Cindy and Jeremiah come from two different worlds, even though they work right next door to each other. Cindy is a strong Christian who lives a normal but somewhat dull life, working as a church secretary. Jeremiah is a Reformed rabbi with a mysterious past full of danger and excitement. But one eventful Easter/Passover week, the two find themselves working together to solve a murder and stop a serial killer from striking again. Solving the mystery should put an end to their alliance, but the church secretary and the rabbi quickly find themselves enmeshed in another mystery. Soon the two form a friendly alliance and friendship, exploring personal history and faith and growing closer with each passing adventure. Despite their differences Cindy and Jeremiah find a lot of common ground.
