From the bestselling author of the Mrs. Pollifax books comes a new mystery habit to acquire. From the moment Sister John and Sister Hyacinthe reach the old house left to their abbey by a mysterious benefactor, their cloistered world begins to crumble. First, there is the wounded man hiding in the house, then the suitcase stuffed with money sitting at the bottom of the well, not to mention fearful apparitions in the night. Lord only knows what's going on. That is, until the good sisters, armed only with their faith and boundless energy, set things right--even if it means a shocking revelation or two about ghosts, gangsters...and murder.

I loved this. The nuns were absolutely charming. I love Gilman's humor; dry and witty and delightfully unexpected. Every little detail means something, there are no wasted words, and no person is superfluous - every character is necessary to drive the story along, and it all comes together in a very satisfying way.

I love this book.

When the cloistered Abbey of St. Tabitha learns they have inherited property from an unknown benefactor, they send the two nuns most able to face the outside world to look it over.

Sister John and Sister Hyacinth find the world to be a different place from the one they left.

They are befriended by 'hippies' and harassed by the police over the position of the house.

They find mystery piled on mystery but all is answered in a satisfactory ending.
