Publisher's Summary

Cooper Lee has never been happier. She has terrific friends at Bible study, a great boyfriend in Nathan, and, best of all, a new niece or nephew on the way. But storm clouds are gathering when a string of church robberies comes to Hope Street and an art teacher is found dead in what appears to be a robbery gone wrong.
With Halloween approaching, Cooper's beginning to think there are far more tricks than treats coming her way. No sooner do she and her friends step in to help the police unearth a killer than they discover a con artist among their flock. Lost in a morass of confusing clues - and even more confusing signals from Nathan - Cooper's not sure which way to turn. With the stakes so high, she sends up a prayer for some divine guidance, because Cooper knows that sometimes it takes the help of a higher power to bring down the lowest form of evildoer.

Wonderful to have a Cozy Mystery with a base of Christianity!

I have enjoyed the Ellery Adams books since first discovered her first book about Storyton Hall. She never disappoints!

Copiers, Corpses and Criminals

As Cooper continues to work for the copier company and attend the Bible Study with her friends at Hope Street Church, things again get harried as the group is called on to volunteer to bring and serve goodies for the family night at the Hope Street Christian School . . . Cooper meets and befriends the art teacher . . . little did she know what that little act of kindness would lead to . . . on a separate front, a newcomer to their Bible Study is pegged as a con artist by Edward, a reformed jailbird, also fairly new to the group . . . the friends protest loudly, but Cooper tends to listen cautiously . . . and as the tale unfolds and a killer is unleashed, the entire group gets involved in solving the mysteries of both the murder and a rash of recent church robberies. . . I am continually amazed at the grace of Cooper's family in accepting and loving others . . . and that of the Hope Street church family . . . some other reviewers are turned off by the open discussion of premarital sex . . . but to be honest, the discussion is one that needs to be had . . . and the way it turned out in this story is absolutely perfect . . . the world always tells us one thing . . . and none of us are immune to human attraction or feelings of needing to be wanted . . . but Cooper got exactly the advice and love she needed from those closest to her and even those she never expected . . . I never suspected the killer at all this time . . . had another one in mind . . . great story, great conclusion . . . thanks for another excellent book!
