Summary

Reverend Brian Lucas has a secret his congregation in the Nine Mile Methodist Church knows nothing about, and he'd really like to keep it that way. But even his Earth-shattering secret takes a backseat to what else is happening in his tiny hometown.

Murders usually do that.

Brian's "close friend", Sam, is urging a resolution to their little problem, but Brian's brother, Boyd, the County Sheriff, is more caught up in chasing down a homicidal maniac who is slaughtering little old ladies.

When Brian's secret and Boyd's mystery run into each other head on, and Boyd's 15-year-old son, Jesse, gets involved, all hell breaks loose. Then a fourth death comes to terrify the town, and it is Brian who begins to see what is taking place in their little corner of the Corn Belt. But even for a Methodist minister, it will take more than prayer to set it right.

Sleepless Summer

I've listened to a load of romance novels and this is the first one where I've actually gone, "Oh, that's so sweet, that's what love must be about!".

Brian and his boyfriend have to hide the fact they are gay as Brian is a minister and the town is very homophobic. Over the summer they are restoring a camp site for kids, but a murder happens threatening Brian's family.

The story premise is good and the characters are likeable. The narration was good though not to my taste.
