Had been awhile since I had read anything from the Sister Mary Helen series! Fun story plot, interesting travel information, ending not too surprising!! But will continue to occassionally read this series as it is always a light, easy read!
Sharon
Lots of red herrings, interesting plot, good characterization.
Rusty
Enjoyed this mystery with Sister Mary Helen and Siter Eileen but thought it was slow moving in spots. Basically, the story begins with Sister Mary Helen winning a trip for a pilgrimage to a famed spot in Spain.
Kyrie
Would have liked more about the actual church and area of their pilgrimage, but it was a good who dunnit with lots of good suspects.
Donna
I like Catholic nuns solving mysteries. This one, however, seemed a bit contrived.
