This was a fast, fun listen – obviously, from my five-star rating, I loved it. It did everything a cozy mystery ought to do: It introduced a main character who isn't Sherlock Holmes but isn't an idiot, is a strong woman but isn't Wonder Woman, is a career woman without being in the food industry … Lindsay Harding is a hospital chaplain, and really, that's a great way to throw a character in the path of otherwise improbably frequent mysterious deaths, isn't it? She's devout without proselytizing, effective, and very, very human. I like her a great deal.
The narration by Holly Adams was perfect for the book and the character. She is now on my list of readers to search out.
The writing is sharp, and funny – not infrequently laugh-out-loud funny, and that's uncommon. Lindsay has a depth to her that I didn't expect, so that alongside the LOL's there were also moving moments. And then would come something like the squirrel, and it would be back to giggling again.
And what a great beginning.
I received this via Audiobookblast.com in exchange for a review. With thanks!

Would you listen to A Murder in Mount Moriah again? Why?
Yes, and I have listened to it a couple times.
What other book might you compare A Murder in Mount Moriah to and why?
I think the overall story stands alone, in all categories.
Have you listened to any of Holly Adams’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Holly was a great narrator and this is the first but hopefully not the last time I will hear her.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were lots of very funny laugh out loud parts of the book, but as far as moving me, I would say it was a touch and go situation when Lindsay was forced off the road into the water.
Any additional comments?
Such an excellent book and I hope to hear more from Mindy Quigley. Quigley's writing is original and she has a great sense of humor.
