Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Carla Neggers has amassed legions of fans for her engaging blend of romance and suspense. Saint’s Gate features Colin Donovan, a deep-cover FBI agent who usually works alone - and likes it that way. When he tackles a case involving art heists and a convent’s long-held secrets, however, he finds himself more and more interested in the beguiling Emma Sharpe.

Mystery, History, Art . . . and Nuns :)

A solid and interesting mystery surrounding an art theft at a convent . . . and not your usual nunnery at that . . . one that teaches about and restores art work . . . undercover FBI agents, a whiskey drinking Irish priest, a murdered nun . . . they all make for a tale of intrigue that will keep you listening . . . and Emma Sharpe, the former nun, turned FBI, is just right . . . tough, skilled at her craft, yet a part of her is still unspoiled by the material things, and a part of her still misses the quiet and the community of the convent . . . The story takes you to Ireland, Maine and the Boston coastal area. You will grow to know and love the characters. Colin, Father Finnegan, Emma's Grandfather . . . Saint's Gate is mostly mystery, and some romance . . . with the romance well done, not over the top or syrupy . . . I was surprised to learn that this is a Harlequin Book . . . the first one ever for me . . . but I'm really glad I got it . . . This is the first in a series and I will definitely go on to the next one . . .

Buy This Awesome Art Mystery Novel

How have I been a reader for so long and Never read a Neggers novel?? OMG, SO Great. Carol Monda did a wonderful job with narration, but I just totally loved this book, since I love art, and romance and mystery, now much better can it get? Now I'm busy trying to buy more Negger's Audiobooks!!

A great mystery romance

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this mystery romance. It has a great mystery that develops as the story progresses and delivers until the end. The characters were well developed and realistic. The romance is not overdone and progresses gradually and naturally throughout the story. It was a great read.

A Mixed Bag

I thought this started well, and I liked the premise and the initial mystery. Somehow, however, my interest was not sustained. With one notable exception, the characters just never came to life and remained one dimensional. I won't be continuing this series. Not terrible, just not special enough to spend a credit or cash.

We get it Emma was a nun!

Emma was a postulate that became an FBI agent. We are told that over and over again. The story is second to this sentence...Emma was a postulate that became a nun...I would not recommend this book to anyone unless you have insomnia!

I wanted it to be better

Narration was not the best, it was OK. I wanted more from the story and also less mentions of "former nun" or "he's an FBI agent". We get it. You don't need to beat it over my head.

Found a new series that has me excited...

I really enjoyed the characters and the journey. I'm about to start the next one. I like a bit of romance with my murder mystery, but not too raunchy , just right for a change of pace...
