Teaser Tuesday: One Was a Soldier

Clare downed half the contents in one swallow.  "Whoa, easy there Major."
-- One Was a Soldier by Julia Spencer-Fleming.  This is the latest in her series featuring the Rev. Clare Fergusson, an Episcopalian priest in Millers Kill, New York, and her Chief of Police boyfriend, Russ Van Alstyne.

This story picks up when Clare gets back from a tour of duty in Iraq with the National Guard (she was an Army helicopter pilot before become a priest). She's wrestling with demons and self-medicating.  Good thing she signed up for a veterans' support group.  Bad thing they start dying off . . .

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.


  1. This sounds like an interesting read. Clare certainly seems to be a character that would keep you turning pages!


  2. Wow! A lot going on in this book. Great teaser. If you get a chance, mine is here.

  3. Wonderful teaser! This sounds like a series I should be reading.

  5. I've been thinking about reading this series - I almost bought the first book last night. Maybe I should take your teaser as a sign that I should just order it.

  6. I had this book on my wish list and then realized it was a series. Your teaser has me thinking I should read the whole series. It does sound interesting.


  7. I just discovered this series this year. Have only read the first two books but really enjoyed them.

  8. Thanks for all the comments!

    This is one of my favorite series because she always has good, complicated mysteries, really uses the Adirondacks setting to full advantage, and has believably spun out the relationship between Clare and Russ over a lot of books.

    I'm going to go on a round of visits now. Thanks for leaving links.
