Character Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Character Blog Hop! 
Thanks so much to author Heather Fraser Brainerd for inviting me to join in on the fun. Heather is a co-author with her brother, David Fraser, of the newly released MG paranormal, Shadows of New York.
Today I am enlightening you on the main character in my cozy murder/sweet romance, Coda to Murder.
Pastor Christine Hobbs never imagined 
she would be caring for a flock that includes a pig, a kangaroo, 
and a murderer.
What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?
My fictional character is Pastor Christine Hobbs.
Where and When is the story set?
The contemporary story is set in a small town, Fair Lake, Michigan
What should we know about (character)?
The young woman loves God, her church family, and her position as spiritual leader of the Dayspring Church. Even as a pastor, she struggles like we all do with forgiveness. She finds it nearly impossible to forgive her ex-husband so she can moving on to a better life in Fair Lake. 
What is the main conflict/what messes up his/her life?
Talk about messing up her life and the life of her church, the church's Director of Music was found dead in the church basement. Christine has to prove she has been wrongly accused of the murder. The handsome detective doesn't want her to get away with murder. His investigative methods infuriate Christine as much as his deep brown eyes attract her.

 What is (character)’s personal goal?
Personally she is afraid to give her heart away to a man. She was crushed by her ex-husband and does not want to ever be hurt like that again. And yet, she does yearn to love and be loved by a special guy.
