    "It's okay"

    This is an interesting series with a unique heroine. The mystery is well plotted and the characters are interesting. There are some times when Christine missed obvious clues. What intrigues me about the book is the relationship between Christine and Jack. I find their relationship and Christine's behavior unrealistic. She leaves the convent and jumps into the modern world of dating without guilt. All Catholics suffer from guilt. It's who we are. I would still recommend the series to anyone who likes cozy mysteries with a little romance.

    "Quality Mystery, Interesting Setting"

    This is the third Christine Bennett mystery, and the one I like best so far. I actually read this in print a long time ago and had forgotten most of it except the setting. The body is found in the basement of a church that had been submerged for 30 years. Dry weather leads to the church's reemergence. Chris's investigation recreates the long dead town and I found it very interesting. I also did not figure out the mystery. There are a few things to know about this series. The book feel very dated (looks like this one was written in 1993). The mysteries always seem to be about crimes that took place a long time ago so we find our clues in boxes of dusty old files and the minds of older people who haven't moved in many years. I don't necessarily need my mysteries to be super believable but some folks might find the coincidence of two places that someone hadn't lived in 30 years hanging on to a person possessions to be a bit much. I didn't mind. I like the narrator's voice for ex-nun Christine, but her male voices, particularly Chris's boyfriend Jack, sounded too much like a stuffed up little boy. But high marks for the mystery and the setting.
