Just found this series last fall and I love it! Likeable characters, very different plots, a heroine who uses her head and keeps asking question after question until she figures out whodunit. I have given this series to many of my friends who, like me, prefer our detectives intelligent rather than foolhardy and tough. And there are a numbere of books in the series -- always a plus for me.
This first book in the series is excellent and is also a movie. It's so nice to find an enjoyable, intelligent, and satisfying series with a delightful detective. Christine Bennet (ex-nun) is not only a character you would love to have as a friend, but she is also good at tracking down murderers and will provide mystery readers with quality reading!
