Methods of Malice

by Tina Radcliffe and Ellery Adams

I recently read Methods of Malice because my friend Tina Radcliffe is one of the authors. I love Tina, cozy mysteries, and Bible studies. It’s no surprise I gave this book a 5 star review on Goodreads.

Methods of Malice is the first book I’ve read in A Hope Street Church Mystery series.

I enjoyed the characters and despite the fact I began this series on the seventh book, the story was written so well I connected with the characters, making it was easy to jump into this story.

The local community theater is performing It’s A Wonderful Life. A famous Broadway director and his people come to town to take charge of the play. The tension between the director and his people builds until the assistant director turns up dead. Besides digging into Scripture, Cooper Lee and the members of the Bible study dig into the murder, and look for clues.

In addition to pressure from the performance, there’s pressure to catch the killer before he, or she, strikes again.

Methods of Malice is a page turner and a delight.

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I asked Tina how it was to work with Ellery Adams to write this story. Here’s what Tina said, “It’s been so much fun joining the fictional world of Cooper Lee and the Sunrise Bible Study. Ellery Adams and the publishing team at Beyond the Page have been welcoming and helpful with their guidance. “

Congratulations Tina Radcliffe and Ellery Adams on Methods of Malice!
