Misstep by Deborah Lee Harper

Strangest Town on Earth

 Pastor Hugh Foster: His heart was in the right place, even if, in hindsight, it appeared he’d clearly taken leave of his senses. It’s December in Road’s End, Virginia, a tiny town long forgotten by anyone but its residents, where Colonel Hugh Foster and his wife, Melanie, have chosen to live—for better or worse. The jury’s still out on that one! 

 Road’s End is comprised entirely of senior citizens whose kids have grown and left for greener pastures. Hugh, Melanie, and Bristol (one of the few sane people in town) are faced with a crumbling church in desperate need of repair and renovation, a dwindling congregation of opinionated, ornery senior citizens, and a camel—yes, a camel. And if that's not enough, the trio and the rest of the Road's End residents are soon mired in danger and intrigue when a group of gun-toting drug dealers arrive in town, bent on killing the church handyman, and conspiring to ruin the doggonedest record-breaking blizzard the town has ever seen.

 Poor drug dealers.

My Review:
Do you need humor? (I do!) You have found the right book to read. Hugh Foster has retired from the Air Force, as a Chaplin. I loved him already for that. He and his wife, Melanie decide to open an inn in the little town with an apt name, Road's End. I love these characters, their town, the crime and mystery, church issues, the entire story was just what I needed right now. From the blizzard to the author "getting" small town life which I know about first hand, this entire book is fantastic. I really appreciated the multiple points of view, it's realistic and refreshing! Even the animals are fitting and well written. I want more. 

  5 Shining stars!
