Sister Eve and the Blue Nun (Review)
This review is for the book "Sister Eve and the Blue Nun" by Lynne Hinton. I have to say, if nothing else, the title of this book is very eye-catching! I could not wait to read this book just based on the title alone.
Sister Eve is a rather unconventional nun. She doesn't live in the convent, she wears blue jeans, and she rides a motorcycle. Oh, and she loves to do private investigations. This particular book is part of the Sister Eve series, but you do not have to read any other books in the series to understand what is happening in this book. Sister Eve is struggling with the vows she has taken as a nun and her passion for private investigation. When a visitor gets murdered at the monastery, she can't help but get involved so that she can clear the name of her friend, Brother Andrew, who mysteriously disappeared right after the murder happened. Poor Eve gets herself into all kinds of trouble as she goes gallivanting around trying to solve the mystery on her own.
This was a fun, quirky novel. I will be honest that I skimmed some of the parts that seemed to have more detail than necessary, but the general outline of the story was great - suspenseful, and not obvious as to who the killer is.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
