Blessed is the Busybody by Emilie Richards

Review by Dawn Dowdle

Aggie Sloan-Wilcox and her family had recently relocated to Emerald Springs, OH. Her husband, Ed, is the pastor of Consolidated Community Church.

When a naked body is discovered on their front porch, outspoken Gelsey Falowell works even harder to turn everyone against Ed and have him and his family removed. At first no one knows who the dead woman is. It is soon discovered that Jennifer, the murdered woman, had come to Ed for counseling recently. The worst part is that Ed refuses to disclose to anyone, including the police, what she needed counseling for. This makes him a suspect in her death.

Aggie and her best friend Lucy begin to look into Jennifer’s life. Detective Kirkor Roussos doesn’t look to kindly on their meddling. Neither does Ed or the church congregation. And most importantly, neither does Gelsey.

Can Aggie discover the truth and find the real killer before Ed is fired and without putting herself in danger?

This is the first in this delightful series. I can’t wait to read more. Aggie is such an enjoyable character. Even their daughters Teddy and Deena are believable characters. The location is a great small town in America. The church and community really add to the story.

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait to read the next one!
