Summary

Linda Wallheim is the mother of five grown boys and the wife of a Mormon bishop in the heart of Utah. Linda's unofficial job as bishop's wife is to support her husband and act as the de facto mother to the ward. But when people of her ward are in danger, she cannot suppress her misgivings about the church's patriarchal structure and secrecy any longer.
Once again pulling from the headlines, His Right Hand tackles an extremely contested topic within the Mormon community - transgenderism. Mormon bishop's wife Linda Wallheim fears for the safety of the people in her community when Karl Ashby, the ward's second counselor (the bishop's right-hand man), is found dead in an elaborately staged murder. Linda tries to console Karl's grieving children and wife, but matters are complicated when the autopsy reveals that Karl was a biological woman. Harrison's work continues to present us with a unique insider's glimpse into the lesser-known workings of the Mormon faith and community. Mette is steadily establishing her name in adult crime fiction as she attends conventions around the country.

Wacky, addictive, and over the top

This book was wacky, addictive, and over the top. I think this series would make a great daytime soap opera.

Disappointing follow-up to book one

Book Two of the series drove the charming quirkiness of Book One to levels too dramatic and tedious to be believable and left me questioning the characters' mental health. How many times did I groan out loud, I wonder, at the quality of the writing and the plotline.

Whereas the first book was an insightful and humanizing introduction to those not familiar with Mormonism/LDS -- a learning experience I welcomed -- the second book seems to cater more to an inside population. Most disappointing, though, the characters were played out as pawns in some unfathomable divine scheme, their actions based on the absence or presence of an immediate physical or audible message from God.

I appreciate the author's commitment to bring awareness to difficult social issues faith traditions must wrestle with, and her attempt to raise a more progressive and inclusive voice to the conversation -- it's why I stuck with it to the end. But, in my estimation, the supernatural influence on top of the characters' shaky mental stability doesn't do much to shine a normalizing or healing light on already divisive issues.
