Description

In In the Bleak Midwinter, Julia Spencer-Fleming’s Malice Domestic-winning first mystery, Reverend Clare Fergusson was quickly introduced to a more eventful life than she had expected after moving to the small town of Millers Kill in upstate New York. But the Episcopal priest and former Army Air Force chopper pilot proved to her flock--and to police chief Russ Van Alstyne--that she could cope with the unexpected, even when it was as dire as murder. In this new adventure for the two ill-matched friends (who are gamely resisting something beyond friendship), evidence shows that a small town can hold just as much evil as the Wicked City.
The Chicago Tribune says "[Spencer-Fleming] pulls it off again" in A Fountain Filled With Blood.

Publishers Weekly Review

Feb 24, 2003 – Spencer-Fleming's second cozy-cum-thriller to feature the Reverend Clare Fergusson, an ex-army helicopter pilot turned Anglican priest, is every bit as riveting as her first, In the Bleak Midwinter (2002). A series of gay bashings, the discovery of PCBs in a local elementary school playground and a brutal murder heat up the Adirondacks town of Millers Kill, N.Y., hotter than the July weather. Clare, rector of St. Alban's Episcopal Church, and the very much married police chief Russ Van Alstyne, who have spent the last six months avoiding each other in hopes of dispelling their mutual attraction, find themselves working together on a perilous murder investigation. With eloquent exposition and natural dialogue, the precisely constructed plot moves effortlessly to its dramatic conclusion. The poignant reflections of Clare and Russ as they examine their own hearts and struggle with their feelings never detract from the crime solving. Amid a host of memorable characters, Clare stands out, whether daring to drive a sports car instead of a safer four-wheel-drive vehicle or donning her vestments to perform the evening service of Compline in an empty church lit with candles. Not just fans of ecclesiastical mysteries will have reason to rejoice. Regional author tour.

A fountain filled with blood

I am annoyed by the number of typos in this book (as well as a number of other ebooks I have read). Every time they say 'um' it reads urn. Malcolms nickname has become Mai, etc etc etc. If I wasn't paying the same price that I would be paying for a hard copy book I wouldn't mind so much. Seriously publishers, get someone to proofread these ebooks before you charge us for them. There would be more stars for the story (it's good) if I didn't have to do so much translating.
