|Plot Summary of Saints Preserve Us|
|"Where's Lorena Alger? This is what everyone in Ash Lake, Florida is asking about the town's most famous resident…a young girl about to be canonized as a saint, a young girl who hasn't moved from her grave in over 150 years. Now she is gone, and her grave is occupied by the fresher corpse of the cemetery caretaker.
Great grandniece Veronica "Ronnie" Lord is determined to aid the town sheriff in Lorena's safe return. She finds it isn't an easy task, however, when obstacles like a nosy reporter, an antagonistic senior citizen, and stubborn relatives get in the way. Meanwhile, as an object of ransom tucked away in a singlewide trailer belonging to two petty thieves, Lorena is in for the adventure."
Kat Lively, Resident Scholar
