View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Readers have come to delight in the murder-solving exploits of septuagenarian Sister Mary Helen and her cohort Sister Eileen, two nuns with a nose for nabbing killers. Publishers Weekly calls the Sister Mary Helen Mysteries "refreshingly different" and a "heady mix of humor and suspense." Once you meet this spry, clever sleuth, you'll want to make a habit of reading her adventures again and again.

Timid little Suzanne Barnes was the perfect ecclesiastical secretary: efficient, discreet, self-effacing. So it came as a shock when Suzanne invited Sisters Mary Helen, Eileen and Anne to Ghiradelli Square's Sea Wench Bar to hear her belt out the blues. Sister Mary Helen wondered what secrets lay behind those watery blue eyes. The Sea Wench Suzanne was a revelation: sassy, sexy, dressed to kill. It was her first-and last-performance, punctuated by a silver letter opener in the heart. Who killed the canary? Sister Mary Helen and her faithful band must unearth Suzanne's secrets to solve the murder before all hell breaks loose-again...

From the Publisher:

She had vowed to give up reading mysteries for Advent. But Sister Mary Helen hadn't the foggiest notion that she was about to be back in the business of solving them.

Always of catholic mind, she had rushed in where angels fear to treat--to Ghirardelli Square's swinging Sea Wench Bar--to hear her usually quiet secretary belt out the blues. But Sister May Helen's surprise at Suzanne's talents soon tumed to her murder. It was a matter of conscience to investigate, but her good intentions soon led her from the paths of righteousness into one of the deadliest secrets of the heart.

"The flavor of San Francisco adds to O'Marie's witty sequel to A Novena For Murder... Fans can look forward to continuing tales of the wily, humane, ageless 'retiree'." --Publishers Weekly
