{{Book Review}} Sister Eve and the Blue Nun | 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.

*My Reiew*
I must say, I did not enjoy reading "Sister Eve and the Blue Nun". We(the readers) are subjected to many details including Eve including items in a room, the scenery, knocking on a door, putting a car in reverse, etc. The pace for this book is very slow and only picks up a little bit towards the end. 

The idea of a nun investigating crimes is a good one, but I did not like the author’s interpretation. There are very few clues, but they are all you need to solve the crime (the killer was obvious). A lot of the book is devoted to Sister Eve’s thinking (and over thinking). One thing that was extremely annoying was Sister Eve’s constantly correctly people on the pronunciation of her late name (Divine). She did it every time she gave her last name. But when she is corrected on the proper pronunciation of someone else’s name, she does not like it. Even though this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone without having enjoyed the previous books. This book was just not for me, but that doesn't mean my readers won't enjoy it.
