A BLESSING IN DISGUISE
Sister Mary Helen is in luck, depending on how you look at it. She and Sister Eileen are in Ireland to attend the weeklong Oyster Festival in the little village of Ballyclarin. They make their first stop at a central oasis of food and drink called the Monks’ Table, where Mary Helen overhears a woman saying to the man with her, “I am surprised someone hasn’t killed you already.” The next night, Mary Helen finds the same man in the pub’s ladies’ room, murdered. Coincidence? Divine intervention? Heaven only knows…which his why Mary Helen must find out—even though the Irish police warn her not to get involved. But sometimes Fate will just not listen to reason…and soon this septuagenarian nun is on the case in one of her bravest adventures to date.
