I enjoyed this brand new series first so much It was funny in places and really kept my interest as far as wanting to see what happened next I mean a group of nuns in a town where the murder was being referred to as the Penguin Suit murder just made me chuckle Just like Nina I grew pretty fond of all those sisters when they moved into the BB Despite their similar names each was Sister Mary something they did each have their own uirks or personalities and I hoped that they wouldn't have to leave anytime soon Even though I didn't want to like Harry at first he showed up claiming that Nina's house now BB was promised to him by his great aunt but she never lived to revise her will I couldn't help but find him likable eventually Nina found herself softening toward him as well possibly the influence of living with the good sisters or maybe she just thought he was hot ;I hadn't guessed the killer and after the happy ending that everyone got I'm anxious to see what the author has in store next for Nina Mattie pup and their friends I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley and my opinions are my own
