When Cici discovers a body in the forest, she's shocked to realize the victim's wounds are identical to the ones that killed her sister a year ago. Now she's embroiled in the takedown of a massive criminal operation, and the stakes couldn't be higher…
"A wholly absorbing gumshoe tale elevated by an extraordinary detective" (Kirkus Reviews starred review).
"Vivid, alluring, and heart-wrenching, Alexa Padgett's A Pilgrimage to Death is every reason I love mystery. A breathtaking tale."—Darynda Jones, NY Times Bestselling Author
Someone murdered her sister. And shot her dog. The killer won't stop until she's dead, too.
Cici's day starts when she finds a dead body while hiking in the Santa Fe National Forest. The situation deteriorates when she discovers the victim bears similar stab wounds to those that ended her twin sister's life a year ago.
Then, her identical twin sister infiltrates her dreams.
All of a sudden, Cici and her dogs must dodge arrows, bullets, and even a demon truck—all while she grapples with the knowledge that her sister was on the trail of a deep-rooted criminal operation. Worse, her twin's death was much more sinister than a random act of violence.
Now, as she follows the clues her sister drops in her dreams, the criminals want Cici out of the way. Permanently.
A Pilgrimage to Death is a high-octane thriller. Fans of Ruth Ware, J.D. Robb, and Angela Marsons will love Alexa's Padgett's new edge-of-your-seat novel.

A PILGRIMAGE TO DEATH
Reverend Cici,has taken on another role, with the murder of her twin, a year ago, and now a murder of a fellow parishioner, with the same method.
Sam, a friend, hiking partner, and a detective, on weekly joints now, and made better sermons for her, With 2 murder victims now known to her, she feels there will be more, if she doesn’t look into it. Is there secrets that never was told to her, a reason for the wolf emblem. A new author, for me, and she delivered a good, descriptive plot, of the settings, also of the characters. Readers will definitely enjoy this mystery story.
Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
She love Jesus, but she cusses a little.
Alexa Padgett - A Pilgrimage to Death
Reverend Cici has returned to her home town of Santa Fe, New Mexico to take over as pastor in her home church. She has also returned to try to solve the murder of her twin sister Anna Carmin. With the help of her long time friend Sam, they will track through the ugly side of drug trafficking in their lovely small town. Sometimes though, the snake is hiding way too close to home. With some Divine and ghostly intervention Sam and Cici will find the truth.
This is a well balanced story with memorable and likeable characters. What I liked most about Cici is she loves Jesus but she cusses a little. The supporting characters are all as essential to the story as the main ones. Good pacing, sharp prose, made this a very enjoyable - and often difficult to put down, story. Happy to find this is the first book in a series. Happy to see where Cici and Sam go from here! I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
