Debbie Viguie


Debbie Viguié has been writing for most of her life. She has experimented with poetry and nonfiction, but her true passion lies in writing novels. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing from UC Davis. While at Davis she met her husband, Scott, at auditions for a play.

Debbie’s love for writing brought her from working as a church secretary to a successful career writing supernatural fiction. She is the author of Midnight Pearls, Scarlet Moon, and Charmed: Pied Piper, and the young adult Sweet Seasons series. She also is coauthor of the New York Times bestselling Wicked book series.

Debbie and Scott now live on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. When Debbie is not writing and Scott has time off they love to indulge their passion for theme parks.


Cindy’s church is getting ready to celebrate Easter, and Jeremiah’s Temple is preparing for Passover when Cindy literally stumbles over the body of an unknown man lying dead in the sanctuary. The church was locked, and a bloody cross necklace on the floor seems to be the only clue. The killer is likely a member of the congregation, but there are hints that similar deaths have happened in the past. Are Cindy and Jeremiah dealing with a serial killer? They have to unravel the clues before Easter Sunday arrives and more people die.

Cindy and Jeremiah come from two different worlds, even though they work right next door to each other. Cindy is a strong Christian who lives a normal but somewhat dull life, working as a church secretary. Jeremiah is a Reformed rabbi with a mysterious past full of danger and excitement. But one eventful Easter/Passover week, the two find themselves working together to solve a murder and stop a serial killer from striking again. Solving the mystery should put an end to their alliance, but the church secretary and the rabbi quickly find themselves enmeshed in another mystery. Soon the two form a friendly alliance and friendship, exploring personal history and faith and growing closer with each passing adventure. Despite their differences Cindy and Jeremiah find a lot of common ground.

My Review:
This was a new author for me, but one that has great talent in writing a Christian fiction suspense book, and one that I look forward to reading more work from.

The Lord is My Shepard is book 1 in The Psalm 23 Mysteries and it brings us to the lives of Cindy Preston and Rabbi Jeremiah Silverman as they try to solve the Passon Week killings happening around their town. The thrill of suspense in this book leaves you on the edge of your seat. It grabbed me from page one and pulled me in, making me feel like I was right beside Cindy and the Rabbi, trying to find the suspect and uncover secrets in the race against time.

I loved how the author added humor to lighten the suspense a bit, as well as relying on God. This is a 5 star suspenseful book that I recommend to all Christian fiction lovers and mystery lovers alike! I can’t wait for book 2 in this series, I Shall Not Want. Grab your copy today and join in on the hunt for the mysterious Passion Week Killer!
