Escape to the charming town of Copper Mill, Tennessee.

The mysteries that Kate discovers in Copper Mill are puzzling, but she always uses her quick, curious mind and the help of her friends to figure out the answer. Come see how faith can solve life's mysteries in Mystery and the Minister's Wife series.—-When Kate Hanlon and Paul Hanlon leave their home in San Antonio to take over the pastorate of Faith Briar Church, they are excited about embracing the small town way of life, but when they arrive in Copper Mill to see their new church in flames, it quickly becomes clear that nothing is as it seems. And when evidence shows that the fire is not an accident, Kate knows she has to discover who is behind it. As she investigates, she makes friends-and a few enemies-in town, and threatening phone calls, mysterious packages, and a life and death chase only make her more certain that she is on the right path.
