"Preaching to the Corpse"

Coming soon from Berkley Prime Crime: Preaching to the Corpse by Roberta Isleib.

About the book, from the publisher:

The holidays have arrived in postcard-perfect Guilford, CT, but someone's taking the joy out of the season...

Psychologist/advice columnist Dr. Rebecca Butterman gets a call in the middle of night from the minister at her church. He's in custody after going to a fellow parishioner's home and finding her dead. The murdered matron was the leader of a search committee charged with finding a new assistant pastor after the previous assistant left in a rush. The minister begs Rebecca to intervene. She learns that the committee was divided — has someone tried to eliminate the competition? Rebecca puts her analytical skills to work to do her own search — for a killer — all while resisting the urge to break the seventh commandment with a very married detective, and praying she's not the next victim.
