Sister Eve and the Blue Nun: A Divine Private Detective Agency Mystery

 *This post may contain affiliate links*

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.

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


I'll be quite honest, detective books are just ones I an unable to get into-and I'm not sure why. The writing can be spot on, but I find myself not wanting to really continue. 

That being said, I would urge you to NOT dismiss this book on the premise that I don't enjoy this genre. I am far from disappointed in receiving this-I'm always honored to read a new book, but this one was a little harder for me to read because I didn't understand a lot of the Catholic aspects. I spent a lot of time trying to decipher the religious elements and couldn't really get into the story-which I do hate.

That being said, if you're into detective novels-this may still be a great read for you! I do not believe for one second that just because I didn't enjoy this means this is a bad book. So if the synopsis grabs at you-pick it up!
