I enjoyed this plot so much. Descriptions of the surrounding area (not in San Fran this time) were so vivid. Almost makes you want to go on retreat there, too (except for the murder). The 2 sisters and their friend Kate feel like old friends. Read it in 1 day.

This book is an easy read that kept me guessing until the very end. The characters come across as real people who happen to be members of a religious order instead of the caricatures of nuns being busybodies one so often finds in this genre. I will look for more Sister Mary Helen mysteries.

**** Sisters Mary Helen and Eileen leave for an idyllic retreat at St. Collette's Retreat. Unfortunately the sisters arrive at the wrong time. The Retreat is hosting a convention of hard-drinking, high-spirited priests. The serenity is threatened by the murder of a former seminary student. It is up to the Sisters to discover the perpetuator.

Two nuns, Sister Mary Helen and Sister Eileen, are becoming known for solving murders. They are going on a well deserved retreat at a secluded site and they discover they have arrived on the wrong week which was reserved for a group of priests. Before they can leave Sister Mary Helen discovers a body and the search begins to find the killer. This was a fast read and there are a few surprises at the end.
