2016 book 92

Elly Griffiths' The Woman in Blue
In the latest Ruth Galloway mystery, Ruth's friend Cathbad (I love that guy) is housesitting when he thinks he has a vision of the Virgin Mary--only it turns out he actually saw a young model, about to be murdered. Ruth gets pulled into the case when an old friend of hers, a woman priest, begins to receive threatening letters that may be related to the crime. I'm honestly more interested in the ever-growing cast of characters here than in the mystery in a lot of these books, but this one balances both nicely and is a quick and entertaining read. I also like that so much of the story here involves people talking about religion, always a topic of interest to me. Definitely one of the stronger outings in the series. A-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book is available now.
