Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

I loved Bell’s Try Dying. This is even better! Between the drama and the brewing romance, there is excitement on every page.

Buchanan is a lawyer who went from the life concerned about billable hours to the life concerned about advocacy. He lives with nuns and a priest who are equally lovable (except for one). Remember the Father Downing mysteries? If you liked those, you will love this series. Read Try Dying to understand why he lives with nuns and a priest.

Buchanan is a smart-aleck. He has an intelligent banter with those around him. It drives everyone crazy except for Sister Mary. There is an underlying tangible sensuality between the two of them that is obviously taboo. However, you will find yourself wanting Sister Mary to take off her habit and run off into the sunset with the rogue Buchanan.

Buchanan is searching for the killer of a little girl’s mother. He thinks that the killing is related to greedy developers. Will he solve the case without getting himself and the girl killed? Will he and Sister Mary finally acknowledge their feelings?

This is a book you have to read. Bell’s talent for sarcasm and fast-moving drama makes him one of my favorite authors. Do not pass this one up! Better yet, read Try Dying and Try Darkness!
