Review: Sister Eve, PrivateEye by:Lynne Hinton

Sister Eve, Private Eye
About the Book:
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:
 Sister Evangeline Divine, grew up surrounded by crime, due to the fact that her father was a police chief. Two years after joining a monastery, Sister Eve is visited by a police officer. This police officer informs her of her father's upcoming surgery.

 Upon her arrival at the hospital, she learns of her father's latest case. One involving the murder of a Hollywood director. As his mistress shares all she knows, Sister Eve starts to wonder about this woman's involvement even further---because something doesn't sound quite right. Knowing there is more to the story to unveil, she feels like it is a race against the clock to find the killer.

 As the story starts to pull you in and makes you question who the killer, sister Eve has her own life to figure out and soon she is questioning herself and God to figure out if that is her true calling.
