Aggie Sloan-Wilcox, the wife of a liberal small town minister, puts her reputation and life on the line when she investigates the mysterious disappearance of Joe Wagner, a prominent local businessman. When the murder of the mayor's wife, Hazel Kefauver, a critic of Joe, adds to the puzzle, both Aggie's husband Ed and police detective Kirk Russos try to discourage her efforts. From official release/information:
Book Description: There's no rest for the weary Aggie Sloan-Wilcox and her minister husband, who were praying for a relaxing weekend until a member of their flock went missing.
Joe Wagner, president of Emerald Springs's food bank, disappears, and Aggie discovers his secret life-as a female impersonator. Meanwhile, the murder of the mayor's wife at the annual food bank fundraiser puts Joe on top of the suspect list. If Aggie doesn't get to the bottom of things fast, she'll be leading a choir singing the blues.
