Sister Eve and the Blue Nun by Lynne Hinton {A Review}

Sister eveIf you’ve read any of Lynne Hinton’s books about Sister Eve Divine you’ll love this new book!

In Sister Eve and the Blue Nun, Sister Eve is still in the throes of determining her passion, and her calling. She has returned to the monastery to attend a conference. While there the main speaker is murdered and the blame is cast on her brother.

Sister Eve knows Anthony has to be innocent but the evidence against him is mounting rapidly.  Can she possibly find out the truth before anyone else dies? And can she remain safe while she investigates? And who is the new police detective working the case and why does she feel so odd when he is around?

The answers to those questions can only be found in the pages of the book, Sister Eve and the Blue Nun by Lynne Hinton, so you’re going to have to get your own copy of the book.

My thoughts:

The characters are well-written, although lacking in common sense.  Sister Eve lies constantly throughout the book, to those in authority, to herself, to her friends, to everyone. And she has no consequences for these choices.

Sister Eve also steals a key piece of evidence from the crime scene and encourages the abbot to lie about it and they come together in a deception that would leave most people in prison when it was discovered, but again, no consequences to either the abbot or Eve.

Those are my main objections to the book.

The plot moves along for the most part. I think it could have been wrapped up a lot sooner had Sister Eve not spent pages and pages detailing her inner dialogue.

All in all I give this book 3 out of 5 turning pages.

 

I received a free copy of this book from LitFuse for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.
