This is the third book of the Sister Eve Divine series. The first book was a little hard to get into and I almost put it down, but plowed through and enjoyed it enough to go on to books two and three.
We find Sr. Eve still trying to make a decision about her future (which sounds rather implausible- I don't believe the Benedictines would let a nun take multiple leaves of absence). This story takes her to the monastery that has been her home for twenty years. The keynote speaker for a conference on The Blue Nun has been murdered and of course Eve has to solve the crime.
The story is good; however there are loose ends and odd plot devices. I would have given it 3.5 stars if I could have. There are rabbit trails about the Catholic Church and the improbable story of a co-ed monastery. I grew up as a Catholic and have never heard of a co-ed monastery with a male abbot overseeing the spiritual direction of women. And Hilary Huber's narration is so slow that I had to play the narrative at 1.25 speed.
I will read a fourth book, if one is written, but if Eve hasn't made a final decision by the end of the fourth book, I will not read a fifth.
I enjoyed the second book about Sister Eve and look forward to more. I liked the narration. I recommend the book.
