      An enjoyable sequel; now, if I could just get my hands on the next one!

      I liked the book, the mystery was interesting and I didn't know who the killer was until the very end. I thought there were a bit too many characters but I enjoyed the interplay between Cindy, the church secretary; Jeremiah, the rabbi and Mark, the detective. I read this book out of order (it is book #2) since my library didn't have the first book in its collection and I may have missed initial character development and interplay between them. I have ordered the first book from and will hold of [...]

      This story really dragged for me! Cindy didn't really seem to do any sleuthing, but rather had important clues handed to her to pass along. There wasn't much interaction between Cindy and Jeremiah in this story, and I think the plot suffered for it. There were several red herrings in this, but I had to force myself to keep reading it. I'll give the series one last chance, but I don't hold out much hope for it.

      Cindy Preston is a secretary at her church. She is helping Joseph, a member of the church, put on a charity benefit. Joseph breeds dogs and this benefit is a project that he came up with to put dogs and homeless people together. Each homeless person that adopts a dog also receives a voucher that they can use to feed their new pet.Cindy has just recently helped the police stop a serial killer. It seems that her luck with dead bodies is still following her around. When asked to go find Josephs ass [...]

      This is a wonderful cosy mystery series. The last book took place during Easter and is referenced many times. This case takes place during Thanksgiving. The mystery itself wasn't really up my alley as it was strongly dog themed, dogs are being stolen while the owners are killed. But I love all the characters and the interplay between them. Being a cosy there is a lot of romantic comedy present. The pacing at the end was very well done drawing me into the tension and excitement. I was also incorr [...]

      This is book 2 in the Psalm 23 Mystery series. It is a stand alone cozy (but I would still recommend reading the first one) that once again involves Cindy the church secretary as a sleuth in the mysterious killings of dog owners and the stealing of their dogs. Jeremiah, the rabbi of the neighboring synagogue, again becomes Cindy's partner in detection. I love the humor and care that exists between the two of them. Enough twists, turns, and red herrings to keep me wondering who the killer was. Th [...]

      3 1/2 stars. This is a quick, enjoyable read. There's nothing earth-shattering here, but it is pleasant and clean with fun characters and a good cozy mystery. This is the second book in the series, but I got it free for kindle, so I read it first. Now I'll have to go back and read the first book.

    • Ellen says:

      I wanted to give this series another chance. Unlike the first book, the mystery isn't as grizzly or disturbing, but the characters remain as flat as ever. I wanted to like the uncommon duo of the church secretary and the rabbi, but so little is revealed of them beyond their day-to-day jobs.I still fail to see how this series is marketed as Christian mystery. Just because a couple of characters work in a church or synagogue, doesn't mean it's Christian. Even so, I know how to appreciate a good my [...]

      This book started out good, and I was really getting into it. I was trying to figure out the mystery and then boom on the bottom of page 186, then again on the top of page 187 towards the end of chapter 14, there were two times where a character, to be blunt, cussed. In a Christian book?! Yes, they were words that are in the Bible, but they were definitely not used in the same manner. I was most definitely disappointed. If it weren't for that, this easily could've been a 3 or even 4 star book. I [...]

      On the one hand, it's a cozy mystery with some vague semblance of plot starring a plucky church secretary and a rabbi. On the other hand, I'm not sure Viguie has ever spoken to a rabbi. Or any Jewish person even remotely faithful. Or Googled "how Jews talk about G-d". Because I'll tell you, how Jeremiah does it ain't standard!

    • Madeline says:

      Not enough Jeremiah.

    • Molly Panzer says:

      Pretty good, will probably try the third one. Have to figure out Jeremiah piece.

      From my blog, A Book A Day: books-camilleelise4I Shall Not Want by Debbie ViguiéThis book is the second book in Debbie Viguié's series, The Psalm 23 Mysteries.I read the first book, The Lord Is My Shepherd, and you can read my review of that book by clicking here. I immediately fell in love with the series, and had to get my hands on book number two!I Shall Not Want again features Cindy and Jeremiah. This time they are both attending an event held by a member of Cindy's church, Joseph, who is [...]

      I totally looked forward to reading this second book in the series. The reader is again introduced to another mystery that Cindy has somehow stumbled upon. She is just that kind of unlucky. As the description states, church member, Joseph has started a charity where homeless people are given rescue dogs in an attempt to give them an opportunity to care about something and hopefully reconnect them to getting re-engaged in society. It is a wonderful cause until these recipients are being murdered [...]

      I found this book on some two years ago, and finally found the time to read it. It is the second mystery in the Psalm 23 mystery series. Since I did not read the first book in the series, I can only assume, from references made throughout this book, that it was about a serial killer that Cindy, a receptionist/secretary at a local church had become romantically involved with during the Easter season. Now that we have that minor tidbit out of the way, let’s move on to ‘I Shall Not Want.’It [...]

      A charity event goes horribly awry when Cindy Preston finds a body in the home of the man behind the highly publicized affair. Joseph Tyler’s idea of providing homeless people with rescue dogs to love and care for seems like a good thing, until the animals’ new owners start turning up dead, and their adopted pets disappear.Never a risk taker, and not one who thrives on an abundance of excitement, Cindy had only just begun to relax after her last encounter with murder. (A few months earlier, [...]

    • Debbie says:

      "I Shall Not Want" is a fun cozy mystery. This book is the second in the series, but you don't need to read the first book in order to understand this one. However, this book promptly revealed who the murderer was in the previous novel, so you'll want to read the first novel before this one if you're intending to read it.There's an underlying humor to this mystery, and the characters were engaging and interesting. I figured out whodunit long before the characters did (due to understanding myster [...]

    • Carly says:

      Every once in a while a good cozy mystery is just the thing to add a little variety to my reading routine. I Shall Not Want came along just when I was wanting something a little bit different and I loved it. I have not read many cozy mysteries, but I will from now on look forward to future books from Debbie Viguie. Shortly after I started reading this book, I looked at my husband and said “This book is really good”. It had occurred to me just how much I was enjoying it and I enjoyed every mi [...]

But one by one, the homeless recipients are being murdered and their dogs stolen. Could an overly competitive millionaire with his prize-winning pooches and a grudge be behind the crimes?

    • Kristy says:

      Not as amazing as part 1, but still a very good book. I think the only thing that through me off about it was that it's got a lot of stuff about dogs, since one of the characters is doing charity work that involves dogs and homeless people. Which is fine, but taking into consideration how much more violent part 1 was, it took me a while to adjust to this one. Also, some of the dialogue between the characters seemed to be filler stuff. All in all though, I enjoyed it. The crime had me guessing un [...]

      The second book in the 23 Psalms Mysteries continues an exciting but thoughtful mystery series with a Presbyterian church secretary, a Rabbi, and a small town police chief. This time a program, set up by Joseph, a rich member of the church, goes aright when participants in his new program start dying.Joseph loves dogs and has set up a program where homeless people are given dogs in hopes that this new responsibility and love will help folks get their lives together. Pet stores and veterinarians [...]

      Presbyterian church secretary Cindy Preston and rabbi Jeremiah Silverman, introduced in The Lord Is My Shepherd (2010), team up again to solve another murder. This time the deceased is the personal assistant to Joseph Tyler, a wealthy member of Cindy’s church who’s launching a new program to pair up homeless people with rescue dogs. Cindy and Jeremiah are trying to stay out of the way of the investigation of the assistant’s murder—their last amateur-sleuthing foray landed them in the sig [...]

    • JaneReads says:

      This started out a bit sad to find out that Cindy and Jeremiah hadn't really kept up the friendship they had begun to form in the previous book, but was glad they were able to rekindle it and it looks like they will work on keeping this friendship going. You can really see the growth in Cindy since the first book. I loved the opening of her home to others and her beginning to embrace risk rather than playing it safe by sticking to her comfort zone. Need to learn from this example. The mystery of [...]

      I Shall Not Want was free when I downloaded it to my Nook. I enjoy finding new-to-me authors in cozy mystery genres.This book dropped from the 3 stars I start with because it had a high body count for a cozy mystery and there were three places in the book when the author broke my suspended belief: when the point of view switched from Cindy to Jeremiah; when Joseph could not smell a decomposing corpse in his own mansion; and when all stores were closed on a holiday so Cindy could not smell Old Sp [...]

    • Kamas Kirian says:

      I liked this book, though not quite as much as the first in the series. I like the interactions between Cindy and Jeremiah, and this didn't have quite as many. Also, I might be slightly biased, as I had absolutely no expectations for The Lord Is My Shepherd, but having read that one I did have some expectations of this book. Still, it was a good book, though I didn't really buy into why the responsible parties would want to transfer information like they did.The eBook was formatted fine with onl [...]

      Another outing for the church secretary and the rabbi as they confront killers. The target (also the suspect) is a nice man from the church and his pedigreed poodles. Also targeted are homeless people who have all just adopted dogs from the churchman's charity placement. Bodies again pile up around the city as the secretary, rabbi, and detectives race to find the killer(s) and expose the plot. Good read.I will say I found this plot a little disjointed especially compared with book one in this tr [...]

    • David Lovell says:

      This is the second installment in this mystery series and I really enjoyed it. The action is fast paced, and the character development is is very good. I am getting very attached to some of the returning characters and many new characters are introduced in this volume. Also, there is an underlying theme in this book. It's not just a who done it! It really gets you thinking about how we treat people that are different from us. (In this case the homeless.) And how we may take a quick look at them, [...]

    • Lillie says:

      In my review of the first book in the series, I expressed disappointment that the Christian characters didn't show their faith in their daily actions. I was pleased that this improved in Book 2. Although faith was not as strong a theme as I would expect in a Christian novel, the main character did pray several times--unlike the first book when she didn't even pray when her life was in danger. Although it's necessary in a series that the protagonist be involved in a lot of crimes, it's a stretch [...]
