A brand new female vicar. An accident-prone nun. Two friends. Two killings.
Annabelle and Mary are best friends. But when one gets framed for murder, can the other one save her?
Assigned to St. Clement’s Church in an inner-city borough just outside Hackney in London, Reverend Annabelle Dixon brings an enthusiasm and drive to her clerical position that baffles her mentor, Father John, but which soon gains her fans and admiration. Annabelle is not your typical vicar, but her strengths prove to serve her, and those around her, very well.
When Annabelle plans to meet her longtime friend, Sister Mary, a Catholic nun visiting from West Africa, at a local café, little does she know that she will soon find herself embroiled in a mystery of deadly design. Their meeting place is awash with horror, with Sister Mary standing in the middle, shaking, her hand over her mouth and a dead woman at her feet.
Armed only with a note, a disappearing dart, vague hints, and a love of cake, this quick-thinking, quick-footed holy woman must gather the clues, pacify a detective, and find the real perpetrator before both she and her friend wind up in jail.
Part Sherlock, part Father Dowling, Annabelle is a new kind of detective – one who sees the truth in the most unlikely places. If you love solving puzzles, then this suspense-filled, endearing, cozy mystery is just for you. Enjoy following our amateur sleuth as she careers around London. It will have you guessing until the very end!
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
This is the first time I have read this author and I promise it won’t be last. I love Reverend Annabelle and all the trouble she gets into, she’s not your average vicar and that makes you want to be her friend. She’s truly a delightful and I can’t wait for more of her antics.
This book was an excellent way to meet Annabelle Dixon to discover why she gets involved in solving mysteries and her beginning as a Vicar. Alison Golden does an excellent job developing her character. Once again I couldn’t put the book down until I finished reading it.
This was a fast-paced, well- plotted and delightful story interlaced with subtle humor which had me smiling. The characterizations were done so lightly that I knew them without having to wade through pages upon pages to get to an understanding of them. So well done, again.
Light-hearted fun book with surprises. Sister Mary is not called the “accidental nun” for nothing. Action is fast-paced and lots of surprises. A good light read.
Annabelle, a spunky Vicar, has a strong devotion to her faith and a joyful view of life.. The mischievous side of Annabelle, joined with her lifelong friend Sister Mary, have a habit of getting themselves into trouble, and finding dead bodies. Their curiosity leads them to sleuthing with surprising accuracy. A whodunnit that keeps you guessing. Comedic story with depth and well developed likeable characters.
