Review of "Sister Eve, Private Eye"

Review of Sister Eve, Private Eye

by Lynne Hinton

Sister Eve knows God moves in mysterious ways. And Eve adores a good mystery. Especially a murder.

Two decades into her calling at a New Mexico monastery, Sister Evangeline Divine breaks her daily routine when a police officer appears, carrying a message from her father. Sister Eve is no stranger to the law, having grown up with a police captain turned private detective. She's seen her fair share of crime--and knows a thing or two about solving mysteries.

But when Captain Jackson Divine needs her to return home and help him recover from surgery, Sister Eve finds herself taking on his latest case.

A Hollywood director has disappeared, and the sultry starlet he's been running around with isn't talking. When the missing man turns up dead, Captain Divine's case escalates into a full-blown murder case, and Sister Eve's crime-solving instincts kick in with an almost God-given grace.

Soon Sister Eve finds herself soul-searching every step of the way: How can she choose between the vocation in her heart and the job in her blood?

MY REVIEW:   This is my first book by Lynne Hinton but I do not think it will be my last.   This is a fun and suspenseful read.   I love the humor in the book.  I was very intrigued by the title as I wondered about a private eye who was a nun.  I don't usually think of those two career paths careening.  The book also handles some difficulties in the family relationships for Sister Eve.  As readers may deduce from the title, Sister Eve is no ordinary nun.  She is quite unusual in many ways.  
        I pride myself on being fairly accurate in figuring out the mysteries of books but I did not figure this one out until it was revealed in the text.  I always enjoy being surprised by authors and characters.  I rate this book 5 stars and am happy to recommend it to readers.  
       I received a copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
