Sunday's Book Murder and Poisoned Tea Janet Lane Walters #MFRWAuthor #BWLAuthor #Cozy mystery #Organist #Church
How did this book come about. In an interesting way. Since I thought the first book was a single title, I had no desire to write another, especially one in first person. Several fans wrote and asked when there would be a new adventure. I spent some time thinking about my heroine and Robespierre. For some reason, a local minister popped into my head. How could I use the church in a setting. So I went to bed for a number of nights in a row and suddenly the book was born. Some of the characters had fleeting bits of many people I know. Thus the organist was formed and some of the other characters in the book.
The moment she hears his mastery of the organ, Katherine covets him as St. Stephen’s new Minister of Music. Handsome, charming and vastly talented, the women of the congregation adore him. Even Katherine is swayed by his manners and ability, But Roger not only brought beautiful music, he brings poisoned notes to the choir. Katherine seeks to find the secret of why he has changed churches yearly. She prays the discovery will be in time to prevent a tragedy.
