Sister Trixie Lavender here! After a rocky start (read: murdered landlord) to our arrival in Cobbler Cove, OR, things have finally slowed down. Er…mostly. My demon buddy Coop and I, along with our sassy talking owl Livingston, have settled nicely into our newly opened shop, Inkerbelle’s Tattoos.

We’ve met some awesome people, including new friends Higgs and Knuckles, and we’re forging friendships with our fellow business owners. And sure, we’ve had a few glitches (see Jeff), but we’ve found our groove, our clientele is growing, and everything’s pretty great.

That is, until Portland’s World Naked Bike Ride finds us smack dab in the middle of another murder mystery! Yep, you read that right. Naked people. On bikes. It ain’t pretty. And even less so when a dead, bare biker lands right on our doorstep.
But this ex-nun is prepared this time. There’s not going to be any fumbling-around-in-the-dark nonsense for this girl. No, sir. I’ve trained, sacrificed, studied…

Okay. Not true. I’ve binge-watched a lot of police shows on Netflix. But I’m armchair ready, if nothing else. So ready!
Now, if only the evil spirit possessing me would let me investigate in peace—and I don’t end up dead in the process.
Join me, Coop, Livingston, and Higgs for another Nun of Your Business Mystery!


If you like your mysteries and paranormal fiction without a lot of superfluous sex scenes, then look no further.  This is a fun mystery series involving an ex-nun that is possessed and her best friend Coop that is a demon from hell.  Each book has a plot line that plays out in full by the end of the book, and then there is the underlying plot that will keep readers coming back involving Trixie Lavender’s possession.

Hit and Nun brought out a different side of Trixie Lavender.  Ever the optimist and ready to forgive is the Trixie from book 1.  In book 2 we see the cynical and pessimistic Trixie come to the forefront.  Trixie wants to help her friend Knuckles, but there are so many obstacles set in front of her during her amateur investigation it leaves readers wondering if the truth will ever come out.

Of course, the obstacles come with danger attached.  I found myself wanting to yell at Trixie like you would yell at the characters in a horror film.  The plot twists will leave you frantic and wanting to read faster.  N0t to mention the overwhelming urge to go to confession there are so many lies to uncover in this story.    

Tune into this series now so you can journey with Trixie Lavender as she navigates her new secular status and all that it entails.   

I received an ARC for an honest review.
