I received a copy of Sister Eve, Private Eye by Lynne Hinton from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
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 (pronounced Diveen) 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?
This is a very good book that pulls you in from the beginning. I could relate to Sister Eve because I've found myself doing a job that wasn't what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Who hasn't? Another reason is don't we all have family that we struggle to get along with? Sister Eve begins to relish her time with her father and the private investigative work her father does.
