Sister Eve and the Blue Nun



My Thoughts:
This book was hard for me to review. I love mystery and suspense and was hoping to have found a new series to read, but this book didn't exactly evoke the feeling of wanting to read more. The story was ok, not too suspenseful, it was easy to figure out who-dunnit. The setting was a different setting from any mystery I have ever read, and could have made for  great scenes and suspense, but it felt like there were possibilities left open. I have to note, that Sister Eve displayed some very "unprofessional" qualities for a detective by contaminating the crime scene, not telling whole truths, and taking evidence. The narrative style of this story, let the reader in on more than the characters knew, so it was a bit different. 3 stars from this reviewer. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review. One more note, as a reviewer of Christian fiction, it would be remiss of me not to state that Sister Eve prays to the saints and Mary, instead of to God.

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.
