A Book Review: The Baker’s Wife by Erin Healy

We have a scandal that ruins a pastor’s career and turns him
into a bakery owner. We have an accident that involves the pastor’s wife, lots
of blood and a scooter, but no body. The man that brings about the pastor’s
downfall is the husband of the owner of the scooter. What happened to his wife?
Is the pastor’s wife responsible for her disappearance? Throw into the mix an
ex-con with a secret that comes to town that very morning looking for
something. Sounds like a mystery to me.

I found the characters to be very believable and fairly well
developed. Only the part about the pastor’s wife’s ability to physically “feel
others pain” seems a little bit science fiction. I had already tied some of the
loose threads together before the story revealed them but it in no way lessened
the intensity of the story. I love that the pastor and his wife never lost
their faith as their lives were so drastically changed from leaders of the
church to bakery owners. As accusations of hypocrisy are thrown around, the
preacher and his wife remain steadfast. The story is a believable telling of
God watching over us all and working in our lives.

I received this book free frm the publisher through
Booksneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a
positive review. The opinions expressed are my own.
