#4 in the Christine Bennett series. Chris Bennett, a former nun, is an engaging protagonist. Still religious, she manages to bring pieces of convent lore into the story, while she also manages to engage in joyous off-screen sex with her fiancé, an NYPD detective. A light hearted read that is thoroughly enjoyable.

Not one of her better books. Characters were created out of thin air as necessary. By the end of the book, there were so many cops floating around, who we hadn't actually met, it was impossible to keep the, all straight.

Jack and Chris get engaged in this book, and even that was anti-climatic.

As with all good ST Patrick's Day Murder, it starts with a parade. This is one of my favorite Lee Harris books.
It is before Chris marries Jack and they are becoming a couple.

What can I say? I like that Christine Bennet (former nun turned parttime investigator) is smart and deliberate and doesn't play the damsel in distress.

Way too many random characters - too difficult to keep all of the names straight.
