The Preacher’s Dead is a new twist on the medical mystery—an instructor in a nursing program not only juggles a move to the unfamiliar South, the recent death of her husband, and a new job teaching young nursing students, but she is caught up in the shocking death of a famous TV evangelist who dies in the hospital where she supervises her students. Ellen Russo has been through a lot, but she picks up the pieces and with courage and determination forges on. Elizabeth DiMeo’s first book in the series leaves the reader yearning for more adventures with this intrepid amateur sleuth. A delightful read
Nancy Gotter Gates,
With her first book for adult readers, it looks like Elizabeth DiMeo has a winner on her hands. One would have to hate books not to enjoy The Preacher's Dead! When nursing instructor Ellen Russo finds evidence that someone may have murdered Brother Jerry Duran of the Saving Grace TV Channel, the hospital finds itself in controversy. This cleverly written cozy lets the reader glimpse the ins and outs of hospital politics, with a murder mystery and a bit of romance thrown in.
Because the characters are well drawn and seem so real, it keeps one turning the pages to see what happens to them. I recommend The Preacher's Dead! to mystery lovers everywhere.
