Cynthia5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful ReadMay 22, 2016CynthiaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I received this book through a win on Goodreads giveaways. I loved it. It was a wonderful read. I wish I had read this first book book, but I plan on getting it. I enjoy that the places that I read about because growing up in the state of NM I know where these places are. It is interesting when a person who has become a nun has the instincts to help her family but helping her business. But I think every person who joins in any kind of religious position must at some time have doubts. I am so glace that Sister Eve can both help her sister and her father at the same time. She ends up helping her sister by keep her from getting killed in another state, she helps her dad after his illness and lost of limb and she helps a man get some answers even though they are not what he was expecting. I am looking forward to seeing what Sister Eve decides to do, if she decides to return to the convent or become a lay person again but still her strong belief in her faith. Only time and God will tell. I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a good clean mystery
Courtney4 Stars Out Of 5The Case of the Sin City SisterSeptember 9, 2015CourtneyQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4A nun who also wishes to be a detective goes to Vegas (on a motorcycle) to look into a decades-long mystery. (This outta be good!)
This is the second book in a series by Lynne Hinton about nun and private detective, Eve Divine. The story takes place mostly in Las Vegas as Eve tries to find out what happens to fellow sister, Dorisanne. As we read, we see Eve struggle with her love of the convent and her role as a nun, and her desire to be a private detective. The story provides a different take on what it means and looks like to be a nun and how that is often in opposition to other career and life goals. The main character is charming and fun, and the secondary characters add life to the story.
Although you do not need to have read the first installment in this series, it may make reading more enjoyable if you know a bit more about Eve and the other characters. Not my favorite book, but not the worst either. I recommend giving it a try!

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Character driven detective novelMay 19, 2015bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I really like this series of detective stories. The novels are not about clever detecting, although there is some. It is more about relationships. That may sound odd for a detective series, but it works.
Eve Devine is a nun but she takes time away from her religious order to help her dad in his private detective agency. He had been a police detective but received a medical retirement. In this novel, Eve's sister is missing and foul play is suspected. Eve and Daniel, her dad's partner while with the police, head to Las Vegas in search of Eve's sister.
In addition to be a good detective novel, the author has given us much to think about. I like the way the thoughtful issues come through in the dialog. When in Vegas, Eve is contemplating why people come to a place like that. Daniel suggests they do so to get away from reality. He wonders if nuns do the same kind of thing, entering an order to get away from the real world. You'll have to read the book to find out how Eve handles that one.
Eve and her dad actually have a paid client too, a fellow from the east coast who is trying to find out about his great-grandfather who had come to work in the mines in the New Mexico territory in 1889. He had left behind a pregnant wife, promising to send for her. Several letters were sent but then his wife heard no more. Eve and her dad set about the nearly impossible task of finding out what happened to him.
That little mystery begins and ends the novel, with the hunt for Eve's sister taking up most of the book. I found it interesting that near the end of the novel, Eve's dad says, There are some mysteries we will never solve, but there are others we could find an answer to, we just sometimes don't want to search deep enough. Thought provoking words.
I really like Eve as a character. She loves to ride a motorcycle fast yet feels called to her religious order. What an interesting woman she is. I recommend this novel to those who enjoy a character driven novel with a little suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I received a complimentary egalley of this novel from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
