In this, the 3rd Christine Bennett mystery (ex-nun, now teacher/sleuth) she travels to the town where she grew up, to attend her friend's baby's christening.......while walking the the basement of the church, she stumbles upon the skeletal remains of a body.....the town had been buried under water for the last 30 years due to a flooding.... This is my favorite book in the series.......well, actually, EACH Christine Bennett book is my favorite! However, I strongly suggest you get your own copy and sit down for a few hours....once you start this, you won't be making dinner or cleaning the house till you finish!! I suggest reading the series in order if you can, as the author develops the relationship between Christine and Jack Brooks, a policeman, so realistically that you won't want to wait long before reading the next one!! My oldest daughter is reading this series along with me and we've spent many an hour over a cup of tea, discussing Christine Bennett!!! I hope Lee Harris continues this series forever!!
