Sister Trixie Lavender, reporting for Miss Marple duty! It’s been months since the evil residing inside me has reared his violently helpful head, and things are pretty peachy. My demon sidekick Coop continues to assimilate with the unsuspecting humans, our tattoo shop is busier than ever, we’re more and more involved in our little community of Cobbler Cove…heck, I’d even begun to attend the occasional Sunday sermon (after safely confirming my body wouldn’t burst into flames upon entering Our Lady of Perpetual Grace, of course). Yep, life is pretty good for me and mine. 

Until the shocking murder of our new friend, Sister Ophelia, during a church-sponsored speed-dating event. Talk about flirting with death—literally. I can’t fathom who’d want to kill a sweet little ol’ nun, but as I’ve learned by now, life in small-town Oregon isn’t always what it seems. When a second corpse is found, the stakes are even higher as Coop and I, along with our good friend Higgs, race to unmask a killer.

But when my demon breaks free yet again, the killer’s not the only one in danger of being exposed… 


If you are looking for non-stop action in a cozy mystery with a story that is wrapped up by the end of the book, then The Smoking Nun is the book for you.  There is an underlying plot that runs through all the books, but you get a full story each time with the Nun of Your Business series.

The characters are endearing and grow on you with each story.  Cobbler Cove wouldn’t be the same without Trixie, Coop, and the gang.  The gang is yet again thrown into the middle of a murder case, but this one hits close to home for Trixie and has emotional ties.

Be prepared, once you start reading this story you will not want to put it down.  Plot twists and secrets will have you riveted until the end.  As a reader, this was a very satisfying story and complimentary to helping the series move forward.
