Narrator Kirsten Potter shines in this cozy mystery set against the backdrop of the Mormon Church in Utah. Linda Wallheim is a bishop's wife who wrestles with her roles as a woman, wife, and mother. Gwen Ferris so embodies Linda's ongoing struggles with faith, doctrine, and justice that Linda sees her as the daughter she never had. Together, they become enmeshed in the suspicious death of a Mexican immigrant tied to the church. The story is heavier on character and setting than it is on plot, allowing Potter to shape the mood through careful modulation of Linda's internal observations. Furthermore, Potter excels at the pacing and delivery of dialogue, skills that lift an otherwise ho-hum mystery into an engaging exploration of both Mormon and individual identity.
