Saint John Don Bosco:

"Never read books you aren't sure about . . . even supposing that these bad books are very well written from a literary point of view. Let me ask you this: Would you drink something you knew was poisoned just because it was offered to you in a golden cup?"

The Accidental Detective Series by Sigmund Brouwer

I want to say it’s a cute series, but that might not do it justice. These are well-told mystery stories.

Summer brings together some cousins who get a chance to visit, work a farm, get away from home, and incidentally, solve a mystery.

Outline: the mystery I read involves a woman bank robber who was ill-used by a bank owner who receives his just comeuppance.

This is published by a protestant book company. The book is not what I would call deep, and that makes it just-right. The references to God, miracles, and prayer is natural and normal, so we can just absorb the positive message that correspond with the life experience of so many without needing to address the differences that still separate Christian brethren.
