The Cantaloupe Thief: Branigan Powers Mystery Book 1 By Deb Richardson-Moore

I received this book from Kregel Publications for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Book Description:
Too many people are staying silent about a ten--year--old murder case--it's time for reporter Branigan Powers to investigate. Branigan Powers knows a good story when she sees one--and the ten--year--old cold case of wealthy Alberta Grambling Resnick's murder definitely makes the cut. Resnick was stabbed in her home after she let it slip that she was planning to change her will.

There's a big problem, though; as Branigan starts digging, the homeless st…

Combining a healthy dose of personal experience with relationship-affirming biblical wisdom, Deb and Ron demonstrate how communication through conflict can lead to greater insight and understanding of thoughts, feelings, and perspectives that can saf…
