I absolutely loved this book! This is one of three books I picked up at our local art fair. Richard L. Baldwin is an author from Michigan, and he has numerous books that each take place in a different city in Michigan. I have two more to read, and will then be buying every other book he has written so far.
This story takes place in Chelsea, Michigan, and is centered around a member of the church choir who was found dead, and the accused church organist who sets out to clear her name. She is Belle Franklin (Isabelle), and since this book was titled “A Belle Franklin Mystery”, and numbered “one”, I hope he has more books coming out with her as the main character!
There are lots of twists and turns, and I did not want to put this book down! The story was an easy read, no complicated family-relative-confused relationships to keep track of, and each character was so developed you felt as if you knew these people personally.
If you are from Michigan, have visited Michigan, or just like mysteries, you definitely need to check out Richard L. Baldwin. I cannot wait to start the next book tonight!
