Photo Credit: Goodreads
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Published: November 24, 2012
Pages: 318
Setting: Bear Corner, Louisiana


He must save the town of Bear Corner, Louisiana from the wicked. The first of the seven sinners, Pride, has been cleansed of her sins. He has six more to go before his mission is complete. 

God chose him for this mission. He must eradicate the sinners. Only when those sinners have atoned to their sins will his mother be allowed entry into heaven. Each day her soul is confined to purgatory is a day of unrest for him as well.  

Detective Jo Melancon is determined to catch this killer. The town is finally starting to find peace from the last killer and she doesn’t want that tranquility broken again.


I was hired to proofread this book. I have worked with the author before and I believe she is aware that I review the books I proofread, but the review was not part of our agreement. If you feel that my connection to the book makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review.

I liked the plot of this book, that the killer needed to find someone representing each of the deadly sins. It's an approach I've never encountered before in a book and I thought it was well executed. I do realize it's not an entirely new idea, but it's also not an overused one in my opinion.

This book allowed me to play detective, trying to figure out who the killer was. It fed me morsels of information, leading me to assumptions about a few of the characters. Most of my assumptions were dead wrong and I'm pretty sure that was the intent.

Overall I give Seven Deadly Sins 4 out of 5 stars because it kept me interested. - Katie
