Read full description of the books:
I loved the first 4 novels in the Sister Mary Helen series. The main character was much like many of the older nuns I've known. Her sidekick, Sister Eileen, is just plain fun. The police detective in the series, Kate Murphy, is an interesting, intelligent character. I would give those novels 5 stars. I haven't had a chance to read novels #6 and later, so I can't judge. But this one, #5, I wasn't able to get through both times that I attempted to read it.
I thought trying it as an audio book this time might be different, but still no luck. If anything, the reader made the book worse--her narration had little energy. She gave Sister Mary Helen an oddly accented (Midwest maybe?), flat voice. She breathed in weird places. She sometimes overlapped Sister Eileen's Irish brogue into the narration or even other characters (though she did the brogue well). Her Spanish accents were adequate but maybe a bit caricatured. Most of the characters sounded too much alike.
The story has very little action--it just plods. I think one of the main problems, though, is the setting. The nuns leave their usual San Francisco neighborhoods and go to Spain, but the setting is poorly described. At best, I felt like I was watching boring vacation photos. The murder itself was well done, but then the momentum dies.
So, read the 1st 4 novels, at least, but give this one a pass.
