Book Review: 'Peril & Prayer' by Olivia Matthews

✰✰✰✰ When Sister Louise "Lou" LaSalle is tasked with helping keep peace during the planning of the annual Advent retreat, she is none too thrilled. But with Sister Marianna and the resort co-owner, Autumn, butting heads, Sister Lou's skills of diplomacy are called for. Unfortunately, when Autumn meets an untimely end, all the clues point to Sister Marianna. With the reputation of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Hermione of Ephesus at stake and donors dropping out, Sister Lou must once again don her sleuthing hat. Together with the help of her nephew, Chris, and newspaper reporter, Shari, the amateur detectives must untangle the twisted clues and try to save the feisty nun from being framed.

The Bottom Line: Fans of cozy mysteries will adore Sister Lou and her sleuthing companions as they reunite to solve another crime. This is a fun and easy weekend read, and I am looking forward to reading the next in the series. Highly recommended for mystery buffs and fans of Christian fiction.
