Another humane author, hooray!

Well read. My first foray into this series. I am not Roman Catholic (didn't matter much). Though the premise is comic, the plot is not a strong point. The characters are nuanced and lively. The dialog is great (Is there a Blarney Stone in Chicago?). No one is black or white, and the author's love of humanity and impatience with cant shines through. Definitely not self righteous or preachy, as I had feared from encountering some other "religious" works. More in the spirit of Ruth Dudley Edwards than any other author I've recently encountered.

Comfortable but not engaging

Narrators' performance is excellent, but this is not one of Father Greeley's better novels. The love stories exist only to pad out a mystery that would have been better as a short story.
