Overview

From the bestselling author of the Mrs. Pollifax books comes a new mystery habit to acquire. From the moment Sister John and Sister Hyacinthe reach the old house left to their abbey by a mysterious benefactor, their cloistered world begins to crumble. First, there is the wounded man hiding in the house, then the suitcase stuffed with money sitting at the bottom of the well, not to mention fearful apparitions in the night. Lord only knows what's going on. That is, until the good sisters, armed only with their faith and boundless energy, set things right—even if it means a shocking revelation or two about ghosts, gangsters...and murder.

Gilman always entertains and her quirky characters appeal to me.

I loved this book. It's not of any huge literary merit, but it's one of the most purely entertaining books I've ever read. There's a new fun twist at every corner, and the 70s setting adds a lot to that. I would highly recommend it to anyone of any age looking for an amusing read.

This book is brilliant! Comedy and mystery rolled into one joyous romp. The characters are believable, and I think that the book has held up well with the passage of time. Basic idea behind the book? Nuns inherit a property and send two of their own to look things over. And after they get to the property, well, that's when the odd things start happening to them and around them. They find a man in the house who has been shot. They meet up with hippies. They find a lot more than just normal home furnishings in and around the property. And one of the nuns even lands herself in jail! Honestly, read this book. It's hilarious, and the mystery is also very engaging.
