Grace Johnson was an unlikely candidate to be solving a mystery. Grace
is an elderly woman whose children wanted to put her away in a nursing
home after the death of her husband, James. Grace decides that there is
still some life in the old girl yet and that she isn't quite ready to
be sent to an old folk's home. She runs away from her children and her
empty life, ending up in a New York City homeless shelter where she finds
happiness in being needed.
Patrick O'Mally is an ex New York City policeman with a grudge against
Vince Bellazoni, a man who killed his son. He is also a very lonely man
since the death of his wife, Margaret. Meeting Grace Johnson is the best
thing to happened to him in a long time.
Someone tries to poison Father O'Brien. Who would try to kill such a beloved
old priest? Someone steals the statue of St. Patrick from St. Patrick's
Cathedral. Who would stoop so low? Was that really a leprechaun that Grace
kept seeing every time she saw that poor dirty little homeless girl? Did
Vince Bellazoni really kill Patrick's son?
In Saint Patrick's Custody by Janet Elaine Smith is a lighthearted mystery
chock full of surprises, twists and turns. Read along and be delighted
by the story of Patrick and Grace as they try to solve the mysteries -
and end up falling in love along the way.
