Review: A Drink of Deadly Wine (Book of Psalms Mystery #1)

User Review  - Julie - Goodreads

Started off slow with an introduction of too many characters but then it completely absorbed my interest. The mystery plays second fiddle to the characters and their relationships. A good lesson in how there are many loves and no love is bad, as long as it is true. Read full review
