Sister Mary Helen, fearful that a new head of St Francis College will replace her and force her to retire,resigns her position to assist Sister Anne at The Refuge, a shelter for homeless women. Although Sister Anne herself first suggested the idea to Sister Mary Helen, she is still surprised the elderly nun accepted her offer to help out and she is worried it will prove to be too much for her. But it is Sister Mary Helen, who, upon finding a body on their doorstep, pursues the clues to track the killer, restoring a sense of safety to the women at the shelter. Author Sister Carol Anne O’Marie writes an interesting mystery that rings true with characters who seem real. Part of the charm of this series lies in the variety of the continuing characters, both old and young, professional detectives and committed nuns, who work together, sometimes by choice, sometimes brought together by circumstance, for the greater good.
