    Great series

    Just recently discovered the Benni Harper series, and am having so much fun following the events in her life as she gets tangled up in so many unusual and entertaining mysteries/murders. Her life story unfolds throughout the series and that makes you want to find the next book in the series.

    Great Read!

    This is a great little read. A bit of mystery, some romance, a dash of history - well-rounded. A great rainy day read. Fowler usually incorporates quilts into the stories - just wish there were pictures!

    An entertaining read!!

    Steps to the Altar is my first Benni Harper mystery, and you can bet I'll be starting back with her first adventure and working my way forward! Earlene Fowler is a very enjoyable writer, and has created very believable and well thought out characters. This particular book is as much romance as it is mystery, but she appears to write in both genres quite well. Enjoyed the book immensely!

    Earlene has done it again!

    I love Benni and Gabe. I have read all of Earlene Fowler's books and they just keep getting better. The only problem is--she writes just one a year! Keep it up and I'll look for Benni and Gabe next year.

    This is a 10 star book!

    Earlene Fowler has done it again! Gabe and Benni have big time problems, but hearing Gabe's take on things this time was so incredible. They love each other and, without giving away any plots, Earlene does not have them just jumping in the sack to satisfy their base desires the way other authors do. I never have to worry about recommending an Earlene Fowler book to a friend. The murder Benni tries to solve is wonderful. The wedding preparations are so perfectly placed in the storyline. The characters are true to their history and well developed. As always, the solutions to the plot twists are in no way predictable. The only problem is waiting for the next book!

    Compelling!

    This ninth book in the series is another compelling read! I¿ve watched Benni grow throughout the series and in Steps to the Altar she came across some of her greatest challenges and dealt with them admirably. Earlene Fowler¿s writing pulls you into the story so that the book stays in your mind long after you finish reading. Thanks, Earlene, for keeping the story and characters so fresh and alive.

    excellent Benni Harper tale

    The central coastal California town of San Celina is home to chief of police Gabe Ortiz and his wife Benni Harper. Although Gabe was once an undercover narcotics officer in the big city, receiving an adrenaline high from collaring a drug dealer, he is content now to work in this quiet college and retirement village. However, whenever a homicide does occur, it seems that Benni is in the middle of it, much to Gate¿s consternation. <P> Homicide is the farthest thing from Benni¿s mind now. Her best friend is about to marry her cousin (two people she cherishes) and her grandmother is getting married after forty years of being a widow. Benni is all caught up in wedding preparations when Gabe¿s ex-lover comes to town determined to win him back. To get her mind off her heartache, Benni becomes involved in another homicide investigation, one that is fifty years old. <P>It¿s interesting to see Benni solve a case that is over a half a century old using old newspaper reports and historical documents. Although STEPS TO AN ALTAR is billed as a mystery, it is as much a romance with Benni having an admirer who finally comes out of the closet. Told in the first person from Gabe and Benni¿s point of view, readers are able to feel close to both protagonists and understand their feelings and actions. <P>Harriet Klausner
