Review: Sister Eve, Private Eye

Sister Eve, Private Eye
Sister Eve, Private Eye by Lynne Hinton

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Two decades into her calling at a New Mexico monastery, Sister Evangeline Divine (pronounced “Deveen” - cue eye roll) 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.

I didn't enjoy this book. The story seemed to move slowly and there wasn't a lot of suspense or action. And for having been in a monastery for twenty years, Eve still fights a temper and feels rebellious enough to "need" to ride a Harley to calm her spirit. Not that there is anything wrong with riding a I think Harley's are cool. It's just the spirit of the reason she rides. I would have thought she would have matured a little better than that. I do admire that she took time off to take care of her dad after his surgery.

I was also surprised with the fact that there was an element of the plot that involved a homosexual relationship. Not something I was expecting to find in a book that I assumed would have a more Christian viewpoint since it is was published through Thomas Nelson.
