Book Review: The Baker’s Wife

The Baker’s Wife
By
Erin Healy

Geoff is the beloved pastor of a church in Cornucopia, CA.  All that changes when his son’s ex-girlfriend falsely accuses him of some suspect behavior. When her father Jack, a deacon at the church, learns of these allegations he turns against Geoff and pushes the church board to fire him. Things get worse when Jack’s wife, Julie, mysteriously disappears and all signs point to Geoff and his wife, Audrey,  being involved. The same morning Julie disappears Diane, an ex-con, shows up in town with her own connections to the story. Add all this to some supernatural experiences by Audrey and you have a great story that really keeps you guessing.

Having co-authored some books with Ted Dekker, it’s no surprise that Healy throws some supernatural and spiritual twists into this story. While I enjoy Dekker’s writing, it can be over my head at times. Erin Healy takes the Dekker-ishness down a notch for those of us that have a hard time grasping some of the themes we see Dekker’s novels.  I really enjoyed reading this book; I stayed up way too late reading it because I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. If you’re looking for a good fiction read, this book is for you!
