Great short read in series. So many twist and turn to keep one off-balanced.
A great story about Alice, an interesting nun. Also a quick read.
A unique perspective on how to resolve problems of pedophile priest.
Second in he series of Nun With A Gun: Shot by black ops from the Vatican, Alice shows up at Rafferty’s house. She draws the attack to them as well as herself. Excellent read for thriller aficionados.
Your awesome. These short reads are so intense I couldn’t put them down. Great story line. Keep up the good work. Stay safe in this crazy world.
What a fun roller-coaster of a story! I was straight away captivated by the action, characters and mysteries unfolding. I loved that each book is revealing more of the complexities of the characters and yet there is still fast paced action happening throughout.I'm looking forward to reading more in the series. It intrigues me to know what happens to Alice but I'm also satisfied that I don't feel like I've been left with a cliff-hanger. I'd definitely recommend starting with the first book in the series. Each book is self-contained and it's my interest in the characters that has me wanting more.
Wow. Another fast paced totally un-put-downable story from a what is turning out to be a fabulous series. This story starts again with a rush, that doesn’t stop. Sister Jacobine is running from the Vatican’s Black Ops teams. Truly ingenious how she escapes them. Highly recommended
This is the second story in a series and this one is just a good as the first. So the story opens with a rush and Sister Jacobine is now on the run. The thing that makes this little book interesting is the characters that interact with this assassin sister: Marty, Michael, Geri, and Rachel. I have to say that I like them, but I think Geri is my favorite sidekick so far. It is really hard not to like this very likable amazing nun and I found myself laughing at parts of this story. I am looking forward to finding out what other trouble the good Sister gets herself out of.

EXCERPT FROM A PORT IN THE STORM

Alice Fisher stumbled across the front yard, hands clutched to her stomach. Blood soaked her hands, but she could also feel it healing. The bullet pushed against her fingers, then she heard it clatter onto the walkway as she got close to the front steps.
She left a bloody hand-print on the railing when she helped herself up to the front door. Her gaze fell on the numbers mounted on the door frame. This was the correct address.
She stood at the top of the concrete steps, one hand still held over her stomach, and pounded on the door. It was very late. The sodium vapor streetlights illuminated sidewalks, well-manicured lawns and the right half of cars parked at the curb.
Her legs were shaking. She heard movement in the house. Someone rushed down the stairs. Maybe several someones.
“It’s three in the damn morning,” a voice hissed through the door.
The sconce beside the door lit up. No movement yet behind the door. She hoped that when they peeked through the lens, they’d see at least the top of her head. The top of her veil would be visible.
She pounded until the deadbolt turned.
The door was ripped open. Detective Rafferty stood with his service weapon trained on her. The woman peering over his shoulder had to be his wife.
Alice raised her gaze to meet Rafferty’s. “Constable. They almost…got me.” She collapsed forward. A sigh escaped her as she fell.
