Book Review-Blue Eyed Ruse-Ginny Frings

Tuesday, November 4, 2014


Although I did not particularly like this novel, there are many of you out there that will. If you are into books about Christian spirituality and enjoy reading snippets from the New Testament Bible then this book is for you.

In general it is about a mystery writer who gets murdered in his own home--or was he murdered? He had just recently come home to stay after spending the last 10 years out and about promoting his books while his wife stayed home, worked and brought up their children. Others have also been murdered and the only thing that seems consistent is the wine from their friends vineyard. The police have deemed it a suicide but Brenda (the grieving widow)does not believe this is possible. With the help of others an attempt is made to solve these murders and to prove that somehow they are all connected.

I will give this book a 5-if only for originality and knowing that this book will be loved by many others.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

"What a nightmare..." Jake says as one day bleeds into the next. Murders are happening all across the nation... why? Is this a series of freak isolated incidents or by design? Characters in this story cross paths... coincidence? Maybe or maybe not... that is for the reader to determine... and decide whether to answer the S.O.S call...

I'm like you. While I love a good mystery novel I don't like reading about the bible in them.

Liz Mays said...

This is definitely not for me as I avoid the overtly preachy stuff, BUT like you said, it works for many others. I actually think my mom would like it!

Sharon Martin said...

I know a certain member of my family who would enjoy this one, yeap you got it - hubbie !!

Athena Nagel said...

I don't mind the preachy stuff if it is in moderation and works with the story. I would consider reading it.

Scott said...

I think I'm the same as you - I don't particularly enjoy a story that is trying to 'preach' something to me in a hidden way. I read for entertainment, not for a 'lesson'.

While I steer clear of books that reference religion, I do think my friend would love this one one. She is always on the look out for good, clean reads.

The book sounded good but not into overly religious books. So may read i if I have nothing else to read.

Maria said...

I love a good mystery! You can't get more exciting than stories from the Bible!

mail4rosey said...

Sounds like a book my mom would like. She loves her a good mystery!

Marika said...

Um..nop, not my kind of book either (I love books about spirituality, but not with Christianism involved)

Amanda McMahon said...

I think her storu of survival gave her faith which is why she includes religion in her novel.

Melinda said...

I love a great mystery. I don't mind some spiritual references. I'm open to learn more.

Chrystal Mahan said...

I don't mind a Christain themed novel at all, but I do tend to get a little bugged when its just passage after passage of scripture because often it doesnt really go with the fiction being written.
