Описание

Cooper Lee was at a crossroads. Her boyfriend of five years had just left her for another woman, she was living in an apartment above her parents' garage, and her job as a copier repairperson was feeling a little, well, repetitious. Hoping for a fresh start and a new outlook on life, she joins the Bible study group at Hope Street Church. The last thing she expects while studying the Bible is a lesson in murder.



When Brooke Hughes, the woman who first invited Cooper to Hope Street, is found murdered in her home, all signs point to her husband as the culprit. But Wesley Hughes was an elder at Hope Street Church, and the members of the Bible study are filled with disbelief that such a kind and loving man could take a life, much less his wife's. Unwilling to let an innocent man and friend be railroaded into prison, the Bible group decides to investigate on their own.



As Cooper and this humorously diverse group of people-including a blind folk artist, a meteorologist with a taste for younger women, and a soft-spoken web designer who might be out to catch Cooper's eye-dig deeper into the clues, they're about to discover that finding the truth sometimes takes a leap of faith.

    I received a free kindle copy of The Path of the Crooked by Ellery Adams published by Beyond the Page Publishing, from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. I gave it five stars because it held my attention & kept me guessing who was the murderer. It is a revised edition of a book previously titled Stirring Up Strife by Jennifer Stanley published by St. Martin's Press.

    Cooper Lee has recently broken up with her fiancee of 5 years and moved into the apartment at her parent's place. She works for a company repairing copiers and is not sure where her life is heading. With the support of her father, Earl, mother, Maggie and her Grammy, she begins to take small steps to change her life. At one of her jobs, she meets Brooke who invites her to attend "Hope Street Church". She really likes how friendly Brooke is so takes he up on her offer. She gets there early and accidentally stumbles into a Bible Study Group that changes her life. She finds out Brooke has been murdered and that her husband is being held for the murder. The group decide they need to help free him. Working with Nathan (a man she finds herself attracted to) they stumble into a major fraud situation. More murders and/or attempted murders occur, she finds herself falling for Nathan, another missing parishioner garners their attention, the search for the mysterious "Hazel" and her life being put in danger all roll together into a mystery that grips your attention and keeps you guessing. I was not sure about the Church aspect of the book at first, but it fit right in and it was nice to see how her spirituality helped her to make some of the decisions she did.

    4 STARSThis book is a reprint that was called Stirring Up Strife by Jennifer Stanley. She has rewritten them but the basic plot is the same. I did not read the story the first time around.I enjoyed The Path of the Crooked. I plan to read the next in the series The Way of the Wicked. Cooper Lee gets invited to come to church and ends up in a bible study class. So there is a lot of talk of the bible, prayer. It fits right into the story. So this is full of mystery, romance, likeable characters and drama in a clean read.Cooper is at time of change in her life. Her boyfriend had dumped her, She has moved back home to apartment over her parents garage.No real friends. She is invisible at work most of the time. She gets invited to Church by Brooke Hughes one day while she is fixing her copier. She arrives at wrong time and gets taken to a bible class.Cooper meets a lot of new people in the class and before it ends they find out that Brook was murdered and her husband has been arrested for it. The Bible class does not believe Wesley murdered his wife Brook. They want to help prove he is innocent and find the guilty person.I like the cast of characters in the bible class. They work together to help each other and other members of their church and neighborhood when they see a need.Cooper soon is involved in helping others and makes more friends along the way.There are a lot of food talked about in this book and at the end of the book is recipes for some of the food. It does make you hungry for fresh homemade cookies.I was given this ebook from Net Galley Beyond the Page Publishing so I could give a honest review of The Path of the Crooked.

    Cooper Lee's life hasn't been going great - her boyfriend of 5 years dumped her and her parents are worried because she moved back to their home (living over the garage) so when one of her clients (she repairs copiers) invites her to her church, Cooper goes only to find that while attending a Bible class, the lady who invited her has been murdered.Making new friends while trying to find the person who really killed her client keeps Cooper on her toes as well as helping adjust to her new circumstances.

    Should only be sold in Christian book stores or with a warning label. Incredibly boring to a non-Christian.
