Duplicity

Summary: Gutsy Boston P.I. Fina Ludlow returns with a case that puts her faith to the test in the latest addition to the critically acclaimed series by Ingrid Thoft.
When Ceci Jhavad hires Ludlow and Associates to sue the hip new church that she believes has brainwashed her daughter, Fina Ludlow is assigned to the case. Covenant Rising Church has all the trappings of a less-than-holy organization: a slick young pastor and his comely wife; fancy houses and luxury cars; and devoted congregants who seem eager to part with their money. Fina wonders if Ceci disapproves of Covenant Rising s theology or the pastor s ability to solicit generous donations until prominent church member Nadine Quaynor dies unexpectedly. Fina s investigation requires her to delve into Nadine s life both in and out of Covenant Rising and ask a host of difficult questions. Is the pastor leading his flock astray? Did the church have a hand in Nadine s death or were there less savory elements in her life outside the parish?
The case proves to be a complicated morass of misplaced loyalties and questionable motivations, rivaled only by the current state of the Ludlow family. The return of eldest brother Rand sets in motion an explosive showdown that threatens the very fabric that holds the family together, forcing Fina to confront the true meaning of faith.

Mini-reviews: Loyalty, Throw In The Trowel, & In The Blood

Traveling With T reviews books quite a bit. I try to post at least 1 or 2 review a week (of at least write a couple for future use!) But sometimes, I just want to read. And then after I read, I really just want to fangirl around. Or scream “READ THIS BOOK!” But it’s so hard to accurately write a review with just the words “READ THIS BOOK!” and until I become a You-Tube sensation for “fangirling” it’s going to be hard to accurately describe my levels of fangirling.  So….
