This is a fun little mystery and good for a light, quick read. It reminded me of Nancy Drew if she had grown up to be a nun.

This is a hilarious book. The nuns are soooooooo funny.
Sister John and Sister Hyachithe are sent to a old house that is left to the Abby. This house is huge and old and has a surprise in the attic. Then there is a old suitcase in the bottom of a well....
And about that "sugar" in the pantry.. it has a great feeling to it...
The nuns encounter hippies, gangsters...posing as religious artifacts sellers...
OMG this is funny.

Ms. Gilman wrote the Mrs. Pollifax series; a wonderful collection of stories about an elderly woman, her garden club and her secret life in the CIA. A Nun in the Closet doesn't feature Mrs. Pollifax but it's a charming book that tells a wonderful story with great humor. A delightful read!

I ordered this book because it was written by Dorothy Gilman and I love this author. It is a cute little cozy, a quick read that is fun to read. I loved the strong character of Sister John, and Sister Hyacinthe who are sent by their mother house to look into a property the cloister inherited....there begins the fun, mystery and action... Great little book. I recommend

Very readable, very enjoyable, very quick to read. Love the nuns and the hippies. Even the mafia is somewhat lovable. It's a must read if you need something lighthearted.
