This series is so well written and well thought out. I love murder mysteries, but I really don’t enjoy being frightened, so I’m happy to report that these books won’t keep you up at night because they’re gruesome- they’ll keep you up reading because they’re so good! The titles are old hymns, and while there are some religious elements (the protagonist is a female Episcopal priest) they are not offensive or overbearing in any way.
