Lay your body down : a novel of suspense

Amy Suiter Clarke (Author)
"After Del Walker fled her small hometown and its cultlike church, she vowed to never return. The man she loved, Lars, left her to marry the local golden girl, Eve, and their romance is now the focus of Eve's viral blog espousing the pastor's conservative philosophy about women and marriage. But six years later, Lars is suddenly killed, and she's convinced it couldn't have been by accident. When Del returns to her hometown for the funeral, she discovers the now megachurch-and the insidious, patriarchal teachings of Pastor Rick Franklin-has grown not only in size but in influence. Eve was clearly discontented in her marriage, despite the carefully constructed "Noble Wife" positivity of her blog posts, and Del knows better than anyone just how far she will go to get what she wants. Del is determined to cut through the church's lies and corruption to find out who killed Lars-even if it means confronting the religious trauma she's spent years trying to bury." -- Front jacket flap
