The movie industry spreading across Georgia has finally made its way to the little foothill village of Adairsville. Bookseller and police chaplain, Davis Morgan along with a young female clerk discover the body of a member of the movie company on a historic site at the foot of a large oak tree. Davis, despite his promise to his wife, cannot resist investigating the mystery. He and his young pal, policeman Charley Nelson, quietly dig into the case even though it is officially under the jurisdiction of the county sheriff. There is no shortage of suspects: the mysterious red headed man, sister of the victim, the fiancée and others. During the investigation an already troubled Charley is framed for a drug crime, and Davis receives word that an old enemy is on his way to Georgia after escaping from prison to make good on a threat against him. Late one afternoon it all comes to an astonishing conclusion beneath the same sprawling oak where it started.

About the Authors

Danny & Wanda Pelfrey are a husband/wife team who in the past wrote helpful non-fiction books and material. Recently they have turned to producing “mysteries with a message.” Their stories are usually set in a small southern town in Georgia called Adairsville. Danny grew up in a poverty situation where he was often without access to TV for entertainment so he found books. It was not unusual for him, in his high school years, to read three or four books a week. So his love affair with books developed early. Danny received a degree from Point University and a Master of Ministry from Kentucky Christian University. He spent many years serving pastorates with churches in several states. Danny is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. Wanda started her writing career writing curriculum for various publishers. Among books she has authored is the popular, MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR CHILD’S TEACHABLE MOMENTS. She spent twenty-four years as a primary teacher in a Montessori school. She enjoys quilting and has never lost her love for reading. The Pelfreys have two daughters and five grandchildren. LIKE A TREE is the fourth Davis Morgan Mystery on which they have collaborated.

— My Review 4 Stars —

Like A Tree is the fourth in the Davis Morgan Mystery series by Danny and Wanda Pelfrey. It completes a nice story ark for Davis Morgan, ex-pastor and antique book seller. In the first book he is newly widowed and at loose ends as to what to do with himself. While trying to adjust to returning to his small hometown, he becomes involved in an old mystery, with surprising tentacles reaching to his present day life.  We saw a gentle attraction begin to a much younger woman; a friend of his twenty-something daughter, all the while being instrumental in solving a series of vicious crimes.

By book four, he has married the friend of his daughter and he’s recently recovered from a heart attack. His promise to his worried young wife to keep his nose out of any crime investigations is short lived when he inadvertently discovers a body.  Only trying to help a fellow worker at his book store, he gets deeper and deeper into danger as criminal elements from the first book return.  In the heart-stopping climax, Davis solves two deadly crimes. But at what cost?

The Davis Morgan Mystery series is openly faith based. The husband and wife authors call the books “mysteries with a message.”  The complex yet exciting stories entertain, but also press home some important spiritual principles that the authors hold dear.

If you like squeaky-clean stories, mysteries that intrigue and don’t hold back with a bit of violence, and that clearly, but not overtly spell out Bible truth, you will definitely enjoy this book and series.
