On the up side, sensitive treatment of domestic violence I will read another if it comes up on the library site.
The second in this series, and a little bit better than the first The characters and relationships seem to be developing This is still on the cozy mystery side, which I don t normally like, but something about it is entertaining I really like the character of Sister Eve and her relationship with her Father, and also Daniel.
I enjoyed this than the first book in the series I felt there was character development here, and I liked the protagonist better this time around In addition to the ongoing backstories, there were two main mysteries being investigated The modern day one held my attention better than the historic one, but both were pretty engaging.
EnjoyedI liked this book All things fit together well The characters were well liked I wish I had read the first book first but I hope to, read it soon Reading this second book first did not interfere with the quality of this story It promises to be a fine series The third book is also available.
I have been a Lynne Hinton fan since Friendship Cake I just finished Sin City Sister I love a good mystery and this is a very good mystery The characters are interesting and well developed people I d like to know like her Hope Springs characters The plot has just the right number of twists, and the suspense is suspenseful, but not terrifying I don t like terrifying I haven t read Sister Eve, Private Eye I ll be buying it tomorrow I know the decision I want Sister Eve to make, because I want to read of her.
