For readers of suspense and mystery, the latest installment in the Francesca Bibbo Series, "Death of a Liturgist", does not disappoint. This book provides readers with a complex storyline that draws from themes of change and tradition.

The story begins with St. Rita's Catholic Church, a vibrant suburban church beloved by its parishioners. However, when the liturgist is brought on board to modernize the parish and increase engagement, enemies are quickly made by those who prefer things to stay traditional. Unexpectedly, this controversy takes a turn for the worse when the liturgist is found dead under mysterious circumstances.

Enter Francesca Bibbo -- an ambitious assistant detective determined to get answers and restore justice where it has been violated. Will Bibbo make sense of the crime before time runs out? Only one way to find out! Follow along in Death of a Liturgist as Bibbo investigates each layer of this widely intricate case while uncovering secrets that lurk beneath the surface of this otherwise peaceful suburban town.

This captivating novel is sure to keep you glued to each page and actively guessing as you progress through this engaging storyline.

Suspense & Humor

Any doubts I had about this book were resolved in the first few pages. Father Bunt is assigned to a new parish, much larger than his old one and feels quite out of his league. The natural thing to do, then, is to hire a liturgist, right? Not everyone agrees, though Father is a bit blind to the chaos and upheaval said liturgist is causing. And then, the liturgist is dead! Foul play? Who's to blame? Discovering the answer will keep you turning pages AND keep you laughing (at least if you're like me...having worked in a parish office for a number of years, I couldn't help myself). Highly recommended.
