    Traci Depree is one of my favorite authors. Somehow I had tucked this book away and forgotten all about it. I just found it this weekend and read it in one night. This was such a touching story which was actually two stories intertwined. One story was a light-hearted almost comical story about two brothers fighting over a dog and that alternated with a more serious story about a family that was going through some very hard times alone. A woman who had recently lost her husband and then found her college age daughter was suffering with leukemia had chosen to close herself off from everyone she knew, including her church family and God. Kate, wife of the new pastor of Faith Brier Church decided to try her best to break through the walls this woman had built up around her.

    This is one of my go-to series. I love it! It's a perfect blend of mystery that keeps me guessing, but also doesn't keep me up at night. This was a re-read because I have bought more in the series and I wanted to read them in order.

    Wonderful book about faith filled with community bonding. I liked the way everyone pulls together. Just wasn't too sure about the "mystery" part of the story .

    Not a bad story, being a Guideposts publication it was of course very faith filled and showed the bonds of the church community, how it should be. I know some places are not like that, though my church is not perfect it seems to be very community minded. There was a little surprising twist to the story, but I'm not giving that up. Perfect read for Christian fiction lovers, it's a mystery but not a who dunnit or any sort of murder mystery but a great cozy read.

    This is the second "Minister's Wife Mystery" that I've read. Like many series published by Guideposts the individual books are frequently by different authors. In this one, the mystery is very mild but the characters are well written and that is more the focus of the story. However, I did think that the subplot about the brothers and the dog was unnecessary (and even distracting) from the main story. The effort to tie that into the main story near the end was a reach.

    Slightly better than book 1. I liked the idea of why Elvis possibly named Graceland as he did (Grace Land, land of grace). Likely to read rest of series: I honestly thought these two were it, until just now when I looked here and saw that there were more in the series. Definitely not going to make it through any more.

    I very much enjoyed this book - fairly light reading. It was a pleasant surprise as I had just happened upon it at Goodwill. It's not a mystery in the sense of crime or murder, but some things need to be found out for the good of the characters -- such a great surprise ending, in my opinion. Subplots of grieving and adoption, not to mention forgiveness.

    This book was really good. There was no mystery but they needed grace because this girl has blood cancer. She needed a marrow donor. They thought her sister could have it but she didn't have one. This man named Jack Wilson. So she was saved. Not really a mystery in this one, only about Paticira's life. And her 2 daughters.

    I didn't like this book as well as the first books I read by this author. The ending was too obvious, though I do like happy endings. I could predict the ending almost from the beginning. Overall it was okay and it was an easy read.

    Described as a mystery, I felt a bit lost. The mystery is who owns a dog and how to help someone solve a medical problem. I don't think of these things when I hear mystery. But the story was good, well-written, I just think the theme was a bit juvenile.

    I wouldn't really call this series "mystery", but I like them. Easy to read and the plots move along quickly and they are faith- based.

    This wasn't really much of a mystery. It was more about the importance of relationships. The characters are lovable in this series so they are just nice, easy, uplifting reads.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a story that was easily believeable and the author drew me in, and I felt like I was part of the search for Marissa's twin sister.
