Blog Tour: Review of Say a Sweet Prayer by Jennifer Rebecca

Author: Jennifer Rebecca
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover by Alyssa Garcia at Uplifting Designs.

The sleepy little New Jersey township has been relatively quiet as plans for the wedding of Claire Goodnite and Wesley O’Connell are in full swing. But when the patrons of the church’s singles group are being picked off one by one and branded with a scarlet letter in blood, Claire and the team put their festivities on hold to track down a killer.

It’s just another case, another day in the life of a police officer until tragedy strikes their small circle of friends. When one of their own becomes one of the victims, how will the group go on? Or more importantly, can Claire survive it?

It’s probably best you say your prayers . . .

Say a Sweet Prayer is the third book in the Claire Goodnite series.  It's the first one that I have read so far.  But for the most part it held up fairly well as a stand alone. Claire is a police detective who seems to have the dumb luck for caching serial killer cases.  A new one is in town and people are showing up dead with a letter carved into their chests.  Claire and Wes must catch the killer before they can get on with their HEA.

I enjoyed the mystery part of the story.  I was definitely kept guessing.  The POV from the killer was pretty creepy.  I also really liked Claire's character.  She was a good detective and one I would enjoy reading more about. While I did like Wes, I didn't like his not accepting Claire's profession.  He asks her to chose between her job and him at one point.  I thought that was incredibly selfish given she was a cop when they started their romance.  I do wish that I had read the first two books in the series before this one because there were a few things that I felt like I was missing out on. One thing being the love triangle between Lee, Anna and Emma. That whole story-line was pretty depressing. I also want to go back and read how Wes and Claire ended up together.  I look forward to reading the next Claire Goodnite book.
