Summary

Summary

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?

Publisher's Weekly Review

A Harley-driving, traffic-ticket collecting, undercover investigator nun? Hinton (Pie Town) will delight her longtime fans with the inaugural "Divine Private Detection Agency Mystery." Sister Evangeline Divine (pronounced Div-EEN) has taken a leave of absence from the convent where she has lived for 20 years in order to care for her ailing father, a retired private investigator recovering from surgery. When a star actor is found murdered on the outskirts of their hometown of Madrid, N.M., Eve and her father are pulled into the investigation. Was it the clueless girlfriend, the betrayed ghostwriter, or another recent visitor to the tiny desert community? With a penchant for independent thinking and out-of-the box methods, Eve pursues clues and questions persons of interest with such enthusiasm that some, herself included, question her loyalty to the convent. Adding to her spiritual turmoil, Eve's new duties as caretaker for her father aggravate their complicated relationship, although frustrations are eventually replaced by enlightenment. This well-paced, entertaining whodunit explores the complexity of family and the mysteries of faith while highlighting the beauty of the New Mexico desert.
