Publisher's Summary

Just as the sexton is about to inter the ashes of one of Grace Church's last wealthy patronesses in the Memorial Garden, he unearths a wine crate containing the ashes of an unknown. Next to the ashes is a distinctive pair of shoes. Not only are the woman's relatives furious at the interruption, but they soon have grounds for a lawsuit: yet another piece of the church's tower comes crashing to the ground. With their congregation dwindling and their world literally falling in around them, Father Robert Vickers and his colorful staff members and volunteers put their heads together to solve the mystery of the anonymous ashes and find the means to save Grace Church from the developers; all in time for the Bishop's visit.

Entertaining cozy mystery with lively characters

I thought this was an entertaining cozy mystery. It is different than most of the "church" mysteries that I've read over the years. In fact, a quote from the book that I found quite amusing was, "She wondered why religious mysteries almost always featured monks or priests rather than descendants of Martin Luther or John Calvin. Possibly they considered solving crimes a distraction from Bible Study.” I thought the characters were interesting, especially the socially inept organist (who probably had Aspergers), as he was only interested in music and could spout a million words a minute on the subject. I listened to the Audible audio version of the book narrated by David Loving. I think this was the first book I listened to that he narrated, and he did a good job. His "Daniel" character was great, and he did a good job giving everyone a unique voice.

Charming Story!

Good storytelling, I thought reminiscent of Jan Karon's Mitford series. Enjoyable narration and entertaining characters.
