Publisher's Summary

A brand new female vicar. An accident-prone nun. Two friends. Two killings.
Annabelle and Mary are best friends. But when one gets framed for murder, can the other one save her?
Assigned to St. Clement's Church in an inner-city borough just outside Hackney in London, Reverend Annabelle Dixon brings an enthusiasm and drive to her clerical position that baffles her mentor, Father John, but which soon gains her fans and admiration.
Annabelle is not your typical vicar, but her strengths prove to serve her, and those around her, very well. When she plans to meet her longtime friend, Sister Mary, a Catholic nun visiting from West Africa, at a local café, little does she know that she will soon find herself embroiled in a mystery of deadly design. Their meeting place is awash with horror, with Sister Mary standing in the middle, shaking, her hand over her mouth and a dead woman at her feet.
Armed only with a note, a disappearing dart, vague hints, and a love of cake, this quick-thinking, quick-footed holy woman must gather the clues, pacify a detective, and find the real perpetrator before both she and her friend wind up in jail. 
Part Sherlock, part Father Dowling, Annabelle is a new kind of detective – one who sees the truth in the most unlikely places. If you love solving puzzles, then this suspense-filled, endearing, cozy mystery is just for you. Enjoy following our amateur sleuth as she careers around London. It will have you guessing until the very end!

Fun little cozy

What a difference it is for me, as an American, to read a British book with my American accent versus listening to it being read by someone with an appropriate and genuine British accent. World of difference! This is a delightful book and very well performed and completely entertaining! I would recommend it!

British Story with a British Narrator!!

Reverend Annabelle has a major issue with the London Public Transit system. Without a car, she has no choice but to use the system to meet a childhood friend, who also happens to be a Catholic Nun visiting from West Africa. Arriving at the local cafe where she was to meet Sister Mary, she sees a crowd surrounding a woman lying near an outside table of the cafe. She also sees Sister Mary standing in the crowd with a shocked expression on her face. Sister Mary explained that the woman had died practically at her feet. It seems that Mary has a history of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and has earned the nickname of "The Accidental Nun".

Later, Mary remembers a note passed to her by the dead woman, so they pay a visit to the lady mentioned in the note. When the second lady also dies in the presence of Mary and Annabelle, Detective Inspector Cutcliffe immediately suspects the two women of both murders and feels he has enough evidence to hold them.

Can Annabelle keep herself and Mary out of jail and discover the real culprit? Can she convince DI Cutcliffe of their innocence?

Good characters and great interactions - Plenty of twists, turns, and humor to keep you interested. With this story taking place in England, the British narrator really brings the setting to life.

A great story with the fabulous Rev. Annabelle

I listened to the audiobook of this story and it was an excellent way to be introduced to the character of Rev. Annabelle if you've not met her before. I love these cozy mysteries (which just means there's no swearing, adult content etc in them, not that they're any less of a mystery story), and Rev. Annabelle is a very funny character, with her ability to solve mysteries, run a church and her obsession with cake (with which I can relate!). I had read this book, but Julie Missen does such a fantastic job of bringing it to life that it was like a whole new story. Highly recommended for all lovers of cozy mysteries, Rev. Annabelle, or just someone looking for a mystery with a difference.
NB I received a complimentary copy of this book, but I always give an HONEST review based wholly on my own opinions
