Publisher's Summary

Cooper Lee is at a crossroads. Her boyfriend of five years just left her for another woman, she's living in an apartment above her parents' garage, and her job as a copier repairperson is feeling a little, well, repetitious. Hoping for a fresh start and a new outlook on life, she joins the Bible study group at Hope Street Church. The last thing she expects while studying the Bible is a lesson in murder.
When Brooke Hughes, the woman who first invited Cooper to Hope Street, is found murdered in her home, all signs point to her husband as the culprit. But Wesley Hughes was an elder at Hope Street Church, and the members of the Bible study are filled with disbelief that such a kind and loving man could take a life, much less his wife's. Unwilling to let an innocent man and friend be railroaded into prison, the Bible group decides to investigate on their own. As Cooper and this humorously diverse group of people - including a blind folk artist, a meteorologist with a taste for younger women, and a soft-spoken web designer who might be out to catch Cooper's eye - dig deeper into the clues, they're about to discover that finding the truth sometimes takes a leap of faith.

Really love this series

Any additional comments?

I really enjoy this series. I first read the Hope Street Church books in Kindle version (published under the name Jennifer Stanley). I like the stories because they have a spiritual feel, but are not preachy. These are people who want to do good, but are also very human. I'm so glad this series is being released in audio. This book introduces you to the main characters, who are likable and that I can relate to. I listen to a lot of audio books, and the narrator for this one did a very good job. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series.

Loved it!

I am a HUGE fan of the Books by the Bay series, so I was unsure how I would feel about a different series by the same author. I was so pleased! I loved the characters and the beginning of the evolution of Cooper towards the end of the book. My only complaint is that so far only books 1 and 2 of the series are available!!
