Sister Eve and the Blue Nun

Title:  Sister Eve and the Blue Nun
Author:  Lynne Hinton
Pages:  336
Year:  2016
Publisher:  Thomas Nelson
My rating is 5 stars.
When I perused other readers/reviewers comments, some of them really surprised me.  I thought out of the three mysteries thus far this book was the best!  The other two in the series are Sister Eve Private Eye followed by The Case of the Sin City Sister.  Lynne Hinton’s series started somewhat rough in the sense of learning to develop a good plot along with suspense.  I am not quite sure what people are expecting, but I was looking for a good tale with suspense and surprises, and that is what I read!
Anyone of the other reviewers could tell you what the novel is about, which in short is a nun who is trying to discern whether to become a full time detective or remain at a convent.  I enjoyed her unrequited nerve to solve a case and take care of her father whom we learn about in the early stories.  I enjoyed that she rides a Harley and is transparent with her feelings and thoughts.  I noticed other readers weren’t that thrilled, but I liked her spunk and quick thinking when faced with surprising situations.
I think most of all I believe the author shows us her humanity and not a character who is thinking more of herself than she should.  Her Christian care for others, both inside the church and outside is commendable and an example of Christ like living.  While Sister Eve cannot decide whether to stay in the convent with the changes occurring in her community, it was interesting to see how she felt about the changes and lost feelings of being close to other nuns.
Eve’s relationship with her father is moving towards a more loving and accepting place, and Eve may have feelings a Detective who works with a former partner of her father.  I wonder if the author will have her character take a risk and new direction in her life or remain a nun.  I hope other readers will consider enjoying the book regardless of some of the negative feedback because it really was a good book to sit down and enjoy!  I hope Lynne Hinton keeps bringing mysteries in for Sister Eve to solve and eventually decide which vocation she will choose whether remain a nun or become a P.I.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
