Widows & Orphans (Rachael Flynn Mystery Series #1)Attorney Rachael Flynn must find out the truth behind a murder that her brother says he committed.  I enjoyed this Christian mystery for several reasons:

  • Christian fiction that doesn’t “preach” at you is hard to come by.  Meissner doesn’t preach.
  • Christian romance without nauseatingly handsome and perfect men is hard to come by.  Meissner’s men are nice and normal.
  • Christian fiction usually has the same tired cast of characters.  Meissner’s characters are more unique.

And an aside, the main character had a 2 month old baby, which is the age of my daughter.  So I enjoyed the mother-baby sub story, although Meissner should have spent a little more time with a real 2 month old before writing the book.  Rachael’s fictional baby sleeps til 7 every morning, sleeps all night long, takes 3 hour afternoon naps, and can be bathed, nursed and sleeping in 40 minutes.  I’d love to meet that baby!
