    I picked this up, and promptly plowed through it, as I was genuinely interested in picking up the following book in the series while it was possibly on sale! But I had to be sure it was something I'd actually want to read more of!As the plot quickly picked up pace, and the most eclectic group of characters began to reveal themselves I knew I had to see the WHOLE book through before I could make a true conclusion. I was not in the slightest disappointed. The next book is now loaded up to prove it [...]

    Edgier than usual for a Christian mysterybut still an enjoyable read. Can't wait to read the further installments!

    What a fascinating book. :) I never had a clue about who the killer was or their motivation. The mystery was a little darker than a typical cozy, but still well done. I mostly liked the MC's, a Presbyterian church secretary and a rabbi. I was a little annoyed with Cindy feeling so unsafe, but I might be that way, too, if I was ever put in that situation. By the end, though, she had found her inner strength to help catch the killer. :) I liked how the author touched on the two religions, Christia [...]

    I downloaded this nook book when it was a free offering from Abingdon in late October. There are so many free books that it takes a long time for me to get around to reading those I've already downloaded, but I was attracted to this book because it was a Christian murder mystery, which is what I'm writing.The reviews I've read of this book tend to be at one extreme or the other. Readers either love it or hate it. Generally those who hate it object to the number of murders for a Christian book. T [...]

    Think: Nancy Drew (grown and now a church secretary) investigates/is stalked by a methodical serial killer, as if told by Jerry Jenkins. Definitely a genre-bending story.Quirky characters. A Christian who carried a deck of "lucky" playing cards. And a rabbi who lies about being married to above Christian girl. He isn't, he just says he is. A local cop who, faced with dozens of murder victims, doesn't get state or federal help. Now I've told too much.The cop and killer parts don't bear close scru [...]

    Really good start to this series. I adored the main characters! I read this book in one evening! My only complaint is it is really grisly for a "cozy". I lost track of how many died and it was very described the grisly scenes. I had to skim some. I'm really hoping the next book isn't as grisly.

    This mystery is not your usual cozy. The Lord Is My Shepherd, Book 1 of the Psalm 23 Mysteries, is what's considered Christian fiction. I normally don't read books labeled as such because the ones I've picked up are too "preachy" and usually in a way that doesn't reflect my faith. However, this book was a pleasant surprise. Author Debbie Viguié deftly blends elements from many popular genres: mystery, thriller, humor, and even a touch of romance in the awareness and tension between a rabbi and [...]

    Title: THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERDAuthor: Debbie Viguie’Publisher: Abingdon PressMarch 2010ISBN: 978-1-4267-0189-4Genre: Inspirational/mysteryCindy Preston is the church secretary, and she hates Monday. After a long weekend away from the office, she never knows exactly what she’ll find, and she doesn’t like disarray. So, she unlocks the church doors and promptly falls over a body. Someone has been stabbed to death in the locked church. Jeremiah Silverman is the Rabbi at the Jewish temple next [...]

    Well first off, I read the Psalm 23 Mysteries out of order. I started with Book 3 () by accident. This led to a moderate spoiler ((view spoiler)[I knew from the beginning that Jeremiah was not the killer. (hide spoiler)]), but didn't really hurt the book. As you can see, I still gave this book 4 stars, because I really enjoyed it. Church secretary Cindy finds a murder victim when she gets to work Monday morning of Easter week. This understandably freaks her out, but due to some baggage on her pa [...]

    I love reading books that I learn from as well as be entertained. This first in the series of "The Psalm 23 Mysteries" fills that requirement easily. The Presbyterian Church, First Shepard is situated next door to the Jewish Temple. They have shared parking lots for many years, now they share a murder!This gently presented novel holds some shocking Easter themed murders of a serial killer. It is not a traditional cozy murder, yet, it does hold some of the feel of a cozy. Amateur Sleuths, Church [...]

    "The Lord Is My Shepherd" is a religious mystery/suspense novel. The heroine is a Christian while the hero is a Jew. There were details about how the Jews were celebrating the Passover and references to the Christian Easter activities. And, overall, both groups were open to getting to know each other better.Cindy, Jeremiah, and Detective Mark were likable, nice characters. Mark and Jeremiah were good people to have around when there's a murderer on the loose. The suspense came from physical dang [...]

    Cindy is a Christian church secretary at the First Shepherd Church, she really hates Mondays and this particular Monday goes from bad to worse when she trips over a dead body inside the church sanctuary as she turns on the lights while opening up the church, following her screams she is grabbed by a man who turns out to be Jeremiah the Rabbi from the Jewish Synagogue next door, what follows is a murder mystery that includes many more bodies and an investigation in which Detective Mark Walters ju [...]

    I really appreciated that this book could simply be a great murder mystery without involving foul language and sex. Maybe it's because of the religious aspect of the story, but I found it very refreshing regardless of the reasons behind it.The only negative point I found in the story is that it is blatantly obvious who the killer is the moment they appear. That is sort of rectified by the fact that it isn't revealed how the killer is involved with the victims or the other characters until the en [...]

    I'm primarily a reader of historical fiction, but trying to come up with new and varied monthly themes for my book review blog has pushed into reading a wider variety of books than I used to. This Christian murder mystery is one of them. I find murder mysteries creepy, and this was no exception, but I liked it anyway. ;) My favorite part was the development of the friendship between Cindy and Jeremiah. While there's definitely a hint that the friendship may turn into something more in future boo [...]

    This is my second time reading this book, and both times I really enjoyed the chemistry between Jeremiah and Cindy. I kept hoping it would turn into a romance! The mystery itself was interesting, the motive for the murders was somewhat unique to me, although the book felt a bit short and rushed at the same time. I liked the themed setting as well, though I thought it a little odd that a Christian Church would be so close to a Jewish Synagogue. I enjoyed the book well enough to continue with the [...]

    What a pleasant surprise! I didn't think a serial killer mystery labelled "Christian fiction" would be bloody enough for me, but I was wrong. There are deaths galore and plenty of thriller violence for fans of this type of mystery. Otherwise, it was clean, meaning no sex or vulgar language. I enjoyed this so much! The main characters were so lovable both the church secretary and the Rabbi. I can't wait to read the next book!. The mystery was a lot of fun and the whole thing was a page-turner for [...]

    Quick easy, untaxing murder mystery tale. Maybe a little naive or stretching belief of police procedures but I did enjoy it and the pages turned very quickly.Particularly enjoyed the interaction between Cindy and the Rabi and about the jewish religious ceremony of Passover.Odd that I can swing from cosy murder thriller to hard core horror, but that's pretty much says it all about me.

    I really liked this book - other than there was a lot of killing. It made me stop and think about Christ's life. It also gave me some insights into the Jewish religion. I went on to read the next bookReread this 12-3-14 - enjoyed it just as much as the first time. On to reading the next book againread this 1- 4-17

    These books are brain candy. They are like slightly edgier/more violent versions of Hallmark mystery movies. The writing is not top notch, the scenarios and dialog are sometimes predictable and silly, but I think that’s why we like these kinds of stories right? Like, the end of a chapter is the same as the “dun dun dun” music before the commercial break. There’s murder and violence, but it’s “cozy” enough to not give you nightmares. It’s a way to do my favorite thing - reading - [...]

    I happened to start reading this book right after Easter and found it apropos since the book is centered around Easter week. This cozy starts with a church secretary finding a dead body in the sanctuary of the church where she works. A rabbi from the church next door hears her screams and comes to her aid. The book follows Cindy first trying to get over the shock of finding a dead body and move on, then ultimately being drawn into finding the murderer. The book is full of red herrings and keeps [...]

    Today's review?The Lord Is My Shepherd by Debbie ViguiéThe Lord Is My Shepherd is the first book in Debbie Viguié's series The Psalm 23 Mystery series.I got this book as an freebie for my Kindle a few months back. I was in the mood for another mystery following the other few that I have read recently, so I settled in for this one. It sounded very intriguing to me!The Lord Is My Shepherd is a Christian murder mystery (I'm pretty sure the title is a dead giveaway that it is Christian) but it is [...]

    Cindy Preston is the secretary at First Shepherd. She hates Mondays and especially this Monday as it is the beginning of Holy Week for the church. Cindy decides to get to work early this Monday to get a jump start on the week. What she finds is the sanctuary door unlocked and open. Thinking that the youth group left it open accidentally the night before Cindy goes in to make sure all is cleaned up. When she trips over something in the dark she thinks that something was left after the youth event [...]

    This is book one in the "Psalm 23 Mysteries Series" and was released in 2010. This is the first book by Ms. Viguie that I've read and I wasn't sure what to expect from her writing style. From the beginning, the story-line drew me in and it wasn't long before I was hooked. Along with suspense and mystery, there is a sprinkling of humor, and a hint at the possibility of a developing romance. The plot centers around a Presbyterian church secretary, Cindy Preston, and Rabbi Jeremiah Silverman from t [...]

    What I liked was the action, straight away! Murder in chapter one! I got sucked right into the story and I found it hard to put the book away. The Church and Synagogue next to each other was also something I found good, showed that religions can work along each other. Cindy, our main character, finds a dead body and Jeremiah, rabbi from the Synagogue, comes to her when he hears her scream. It's the beginning of a partnership to find the killer.That the murders (yes, there is more than one) have [...]

    Hands down one of the best mysteries I've ever read!d a great first book to ring in the new year! :P I really wasn't sure if I'd like it, since after all I did get the whole 3 part series FREE on Kindlebut OMG, it was amazing!!! I could not put it down. It hooked me from chapter 1, right when the main character Cindy trips over a dead body in the church she works at, and it didn't let me go until the very last chapter. Constant action throughout, never a dull moment. I watch a lot of Criminal Mi [...]

    I was really disappointed in this book. When I first heard of the series where titles were based on parts of Psalm 23, I liked the description so much I picked up the first three books when they were all cheap on Kindle. Now I wish I hadn't. The serial killer in the book commits grizzly murders and poses the corpses in scenes from Holy Week. I found those scenes so disturbing that I almost quit the book after every one - and there were a lot. I did finish the book, but I did it with the reading [...]

    I picked "The Lord Is My Shepherd" because I was looking for a cozy mystery. I love that cozy mysteries give you a mystery without the sex and foul language. Cozies also involve more characters that I can relate to. Let's face it, for the most part, the people we know aren't fashion models, movie stars or explorers. Most of us through six degrees of separation may know someone in a high end career, but most of us still live our day-to-day lives far from a spotlight. In a cozy anyone can become a [...]

    Spring is here, bringing on Easter Week and Passover.  Cindy's church and Jeremiah's synagogue are next door to each other.  This is convenient because both congregations can use the other's parking lot for overflow parking during services.  But when Cindy's screams in the church are heard by Jeremiah in the parking lot, a new alliance is formed. There's a body in the church and fear and death draw people together.  While the police, led by Mark, try to figure who this dead stranger is, [...]

    Who doesn't love a good serial killer story??? I haven't finished this book yet, but I am finding that I am enjoying the mystery so far. I like how the two main characters come from two different faiths and are building a friendship beyond their individual beliefs. They can even find humor in each other's beliefs and yet still respect each other. I have to say though, because I haven't finished this story, I am not entirely convinced yet that the rabbi, Jeremiah, isn't the killer himself. Guess [...]
