Cooper Lee's life hasn't been going great - her boyfriend of 5 years dumped her and her parents are worried because she moved back to their home (living over the garage) so when one of her clients (she repairs copiers) invites her to her church, Cooper goes only to find that while attending a Bible class, the lady who invited her has been murdered.

Making new friends while trying to find the person who really killed her client keeps Cooper on her toes as well as helping adjust to her new circumstances. ( )

This book is a reprint that was called Stirring Up Strife by Jennifer Stanley. She has rewritten them but the basic plot is the same. I did not read the story the first time around.
I enjoyed The Path of the Crooked. I plan to read the next in the series The Way of the Wicked.
Cooper Lee gets invited to come to church and ends up in a bible study class. So there is a lot of talk of the bible, prayer. It fits right into the story. So this is full of mystery, romance, likeable characters and drama in a clean read.

Cooper is at time of change in her life. Her boyfriend had dumped her, She has moved back home to apartment over her parents garage.
No real friends. She is invisible at work most of the time. She gets invited to Church by Brooke Hughes one day while she is fixing her copier. She arrives at wrong time and gets taken to a bible class.

Cooper meets a lot of new people in the class and before it ends they find out that Brook was murdered and her husband has been arrested for it. The Bible class does not believe Wesley murdered his wife Brook. They want to help prove he is innocent and find the guilty person.

I like the cast of characters in the bible class. They work together to help each other and other members of their church and neighborhood when they see a need.

Cooper soon is involved in helping others and makes more friends along the way.

There are a lot of food talked about in this book and at the end of the book is recipes for some of the food. It does make you hungry for fresh homemade cookies.

I was given this ebook from Net Galley Beyond the Page Publishing so I could give a honest review of The Path of the Crooked. ( )

Cooper Lee was at a crossroads. Her boyfriend of five years had just left her for another woman, she was living in an apartment above her parents' garage, and her job as a copier repairperson was feeling a little, well, repetitious. Hoping for a fresh start and a new outlook on life, she joins the Bible study group at Hope Street Church. The last thing she expects while studying the Bible is a lesson in murder.… (more)
