This book is different. I have never read a book with a religious person as a lead. I admit I was a bit nervous that the religion aspect would take over the plot. That did not happen. What did happen was an interesting and entertaining book with an engrossing subject matter. The lead character, Christine Bennett, just left the convent and is trying to find her way in the secular world when she gets thrown into a murder investigation. Not just any murder, but one that happened 50 years ago and involved intellectually disabled twins. This is not a typical cozy mystery. It read like a police procedural with a heavy and serious storyline. Unlike the typical light and fluffy situations in a cozy mystery. The only humor comes with Christine's struggle to fit into her new life as a woman and not a nun. Although it is a serious book, it is good and I will read the next one. Hopefully it lightens up a bit.
I was surprised that this book was so good. The world that Stephanie Nelson created was unique and believable. The characters were well developed and realistic. The pace was fast and engaging. I haven't liked a new series this much in a while. I highly recommend this book.
I passed this book up several times before finally giving it a chance. I'm glad I decided to listen to it. It was very entertaining. The characters were realistic and intersting. The plot was believable and nicely paced. This was an enjoyable book and I will buy the next in the series.
I enjoy this series for what it is: a light cozy mystery with recipes. However, the recipes are not included in this version. I had to buy the Kindle version after I already bought the audiobook version. I was very upset. However, the book was good and I enjoyed reading about Katie and her friends solving another murder while creating delicious treats.
This is a very entertaining book with a complex storyline. But, Harrison handles it well and you never get lost or bored. Rachel is at her best with the help of her friends. There is a lot of action and character development. This is one of the best examples of an urban fantasy series.
This book is fast paced and full of action. Atticus, Granuaile and Oberon literally run acroos Europe in order to survive their latest antics. The plot is darker and sadder than previous books. There is a lot of growth and development with the characters. I look forward to the next book.
This series is awesome. I love Atticus and Granuaile together. They make a good pair and I look forward to seeing them work together in the future books. Oberon holds his own and brings lots of humor. This is a must read series.
This wasn't as good as the others but it was okay. I found myself skipping forward a couple of times. I hope the next book in the series is more interesting.
This is a great series. As always, Mercy is on top of her game. She handles everything with her usual aplomb and snarky attitude. The ending was a bit abrupt. I had hoped to see Adam stick up for Mercy to Christie. Other than that I had no complaints. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
This is a quick read with a well written and well plotted story line. The main characters are easy to like and very realistic. The mystery is interesting and fast paced. As for the cats, they might be growing on me. Owen and Hercules add lots of humor to the story. I enjoyed listening to this and will listen to the next book if Audible acquires it.
This was the best book so far in the series. The characters are developing realistically and the storyline is fresh and crisp. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries.
