In the Bleak Midwinter - Julia Spencer-Fleming

Heres what happens when the small town Police Chief unexpectedly meets the new priest and discovers she’s female. The Police Chief asks himself:

 

What was he supposed to call her? “Mother?”

“I go by Reverend, Chief. Ms. is fine, too.”

“Oh. Sorry. I never met a woman priest before.”

“We’re just like the men priests, except we’re willing to pull over and ask directions.”
