The Incumbment by Alton Gansky

Alton seems to have a penchant for below average series. The Madison Glenn series follows the struggles of small town mayor Madison Glenn.
The Incumbent is basically a murder mystery. As a new mayor and new widow, Madison Glenn has to live two separate lifestyles. But both lifestyles are threatened when a dead body turns up in town. Also, a close friend of her husband relates to her how he died. Since Peter was a Christian and Maddy is not, she struggles with that too.
Though the book is told form her first person perspective, I found it rather boring and methodical in its writing style. The culprit's pretty easy to figure out. The characters aren't any good.
It's just one of those books you wish you hadn't wasted any time on after you read it.
This one could have gone unwritten.
1.5 stars
