"Hello, Ms Vivian ... it's been a long time."And with those words, Vivian Leigh Rochet nearly melted. It's been years since she last saw Harrison Whitley-Shuler. She was a teenager scrubbing houses for a living, and he was gorgeous son of rich parents, not fit for the likes of her.Vivian had vowed to get out of Charleston, become a big Hollywood star, and stick it to the snooty girls who made her cry. She's gotten what she wanted--and more--but why does her glamorous life seems so trivial?
Sister Eve always says God moves in mysterious ways. And Eve adores a good mystery--especially a murder. A member of the Benedictine order in Pecos, New Mexico, Sister Evangeline has been feeling disconnected and a bit uncertain about her calling. She's not thrilled when she must return home to Madrid, New Mexico, to care for her testy, ailing father, but she's also invigorated to take on some new challenges. Retired Police Captain Jackson Divine is in trouble. "The Captain" is a private eye specializing in finding lost people and he's been hot on case. But his diabetes has spiraled out of control, requiring surgery. Just before the crisis, he was hired to find Chaz Cheston, a missing Hollywood director. But when Cheston turns up dead--murdered--the stakes for the Captain are raised. Suspects abound, including Cheston's mistress, a young starlet and most recent client of Captain Divine. Evangeline steps in to help solve the case. But one answered question raises another: Will Sister Eve return to the cloistered life or decide to give up her habit?
