Synopsis of “The Convent’:

Faced with darkness, could you find the light?

An innocent victim. A wicked crime. A killer on the loose.

Meet Sister Veronica Angelica, a secret crime fiction writer and lover of custard cream biscuits.

When she discovers a dead man in the grounds of the Catholic Youth Hostel, a building next door to her Convent, she can see he’s been brutally murdered.

What she doesn’t know, is that Jamie had a secret he’d been about to confess.

Being forbidden by the Cardinal to contact the police, the nuns at The Convent of the Christian Heart are instructed to contain news of the murder.

As Sister Veronica tries to uncover the truth, another murder takes place, plunging her deeper into the mystery.

But when her investigation raises more questions than answers, will Sister Veronica be able to solve the case without attracting the killer’s attention?

Reviews have been extremely positive.

An Amazon review, Lynne wrote: “What a delightful read, it had everything from humour to terror for poor Sister Veronica. She certainly had her work cut out trying to solve the crime of Jamie but she did it. So happy for mellissa finally finding love. The worst part was the things that happened inside the churches, the corruption and upsetting the way some priests and nuns treat young men and women so sad as they had no where to turn.”

Susan Pengelly, also an Amazon buyer, wrote: “Having experienced the vagaries of an organised religion this story twanged a nerve or two and sent me to research the hidden children of priests and nuns I had never heard of before. This is a great book, do read it, you will enjoy the story and it will leave you stirred.”

Mrs P Rodgers wrote: “It’s the first time in a long time that I’ve read a book that has kept my attention as much as this did. Not just the story, but the corruption that it drew attention to. Very thought provoking.”
