Readers have come to delight in the murder solving exploits of septuagenarian Sister Mary Helen and her cohort Sister Eileen two nuns with a nose for nabbing killers Publishers Weekly calls the Sister Mary Helen Mysteries refreshingly different and a heady mix of humor and suspense Onceou meet this spry clever sleuth ou'll want to ,

Advent of DyingY humor I also enjoyed the way Catholic ritual and tradition is woven through the story not in an overbearing way just informative and what I find interesting Sister Carol Ann O Marie was herself a Sister of St Joseph of Carondelet taking her vows in 1954 and along with another Sister ran a shelter for homeless women in San Francisco for many ears Unfortunately she died in 2008 I believe or maybe it was 2009 and left us with only 11 entries in the Sister Mary Helen series I enjoyed this series Advent of Dying is the second book about religious sleuth Sister Mary Helen written by Sister Carol Anne O Marie in 1986 In Advent of Dying Sister Mary Helen s ecclesiastic secretary Suzanne invites her and several other nuns to a bar to witness HER DEBUT AS A BLUES SINGER NO ONE WAS debut as a blues singer No one was shocked as Sister Mary Helen who always suspected Suzanne of being a former nun When Sister Mary Helen goes to speak to her the following day she finds Suzanne dead with a silver letter opener protruding from her chest her apartment in total disarray Feeling guilty for not listening to Suzanne when she was approached in the past Sister I enjoyed this even than the first book of the series Sister Mary Helen is a fun character and I like the way Catholic tradition experience and teaching is worked into the story I especially love the fact that the chapter experience and teaching is worked into the story I especially love the fact that the chapter refer to the liturgical ear using St Andrew s feast day and the Sundays of Advent to mark time I also appreciate that the author includes characters behaving in realistic ways that go against church teaching and shows how some of them at least come to see the error in their behavior and take steps to change it The book shows a very loving attitude toward these characters which I think does a lot of good for the of the Catholic church among non Catholic readersThe mystery itself was also compelling and though I figured out few things early on I didn t piece the whole puzzle together until Mary Helen did I found that I cared about the victim in this book than the last one probably because there was an air Light fun read Sister Mary Helen might be a nun and she may be in her 70 s but don t think that stops her or slows her down An avid mystery reader she was sent to Mount St Francis to retire and do research when the murder of the head of Mount St Francis history department interrupted her retirement and she helped Inspector Kate Murphy solve the murder When her receptionist Suzanne invites her to the Sea Wench to hear her sing she is a bit surprised as Suzanne is so uiet normally but she happily agrees and gets her friend Sister Eileen Francis and sister Anne to go with her Suzanne Barnes tur.
