Sister Eve and the Blue Nun by Lynne Hinton - REVIEWED

About the book: 

Sister Eve and the Blue Nun (Thomas Nelson, May 2016)

After a murder at the monastery, Sister Eve may need a miracle if she is to prove a dear friend isn't a cold-blooded killer.

Sister Eve, a motorcycle-riding nun with a natural (or is it supernatural?) gift for solving murders returns to the enclave she once called home and quickly finds herself confronting yet another mysterious death.

Someone has poisoned Dr. Kelly Middlesworth---a researcher on the life and ministry of 17th-century's revered "Blue Nun"---and a set of irreplaceable historic documents have disappeared before they could even be examined.

When all evidence seems to point to the victim's brother, Sister Eve sets out to expose the killer and learn the explosive truth those missing manuscripts might contain.

Chasing a killer is dangerous work, and as her two worlds collide, Sister Eve may need some heavenly help simply to survive.

My Thoughts:
Sister Evangeline, or Sister Eve, is quite the detective!  Solving murders seems to be something she has a knack for, and she is good at discerning clues that others seem to overlook.  I’m glad for the sake of the characters in the book, otherwise the murderer would be….well he wouldn’t receive the justice due and others would probably be dead.  Sister Evangeline barely made it through this novel!

This was a fun read if you like a classic “who-done-it” feel to your Summer reading!  The author did a good job of hiding the culprit in plain sight, and the ending was very satisfying and very high speed! Lynne Hinton writes well-developed characters, and gives you a story that is multi-layered but not heavy.

I apologize for being a tad late with the review, but it was marked wrong in my calendar. I am happy to recommend this novel!!  It is a fun and suspenseful read!
