When a popular youth pastor is accused of a grisly crime, MacLaren Yarbrough won't rest until she finds the truth. Her gut instinct tells her Luke Blessed is innocent. Still, how could the dream he had on the night a young woman was murdered depict the crime with such chilling accuracy? As MacLaren tracks down clues from all corners of Hopewell, GA, four like suspects emerge. But the police aren't buying her theories. Even her husband, local magistrate Joe Riddley, resists her amateur sleuthing. This case, he feels, is too dangerous. Just how dangerous, both of them are about to discover. The assailant strikes again, leaving Joe comatose from a gunshot wound to the head. And suddenly, a new question stares MacLaren in the face. It's the most perplexing question of all -- and the most personal: Why shoot the magistrate?

She’s sixty-something, spunky and a sucker for a good mystery. MacLaren Crane Yarbrough finds herself dealing with murder in her quiet Georgia town - and Pastor Luke Wallace is the prime suspect. MacLaren thinks the police have been hasty in pinning it on the man of God, and she’s determined to prove it. When her husband is shot during their amateur investigation, she discovers just how high the price of truth might be. But Why Shoot The Magistrate? is the second in Patricia Sprinkle’s Yarbrough series.
