My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is the first book I have read from this author, and the idea of a former nun solving the case was really intriguing to me. This is a cozy mystery to be sure–no overt violence or sex–but the profanity sure seems out-of-place in this kind of book. (Note–I am not marking the book down for this–just an observation).
For me, this book did not deliver as well as I would have liked it to. I loved the character of Giulia. I instantly connected with her. But I found that was the only major connection I made. I wasn’t overly interested in the mystery, and I really wanted to absolutely adore this book. I loved the premise more than the book itself, but maybe in future books, I would connect more. Excellent writing, I just wanted to be engaged more.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
