Sister Joan is still acting as lay sister and doing some of the cooking as well as running errands for her community - the Daughters of Compassion. She is asked to go and collect two prospective nuns from the station. Magdalen and Bernadette are two totally different girls and Sister Joan immediately likes Bernadette and distrusts Magdalen - something doesn't feel right about her.

When red roses start appearing in strange places and Sister Joan has an unpleasant encounter at night things start to get frightening and everyone in the community is on edge. Precautions are taken but worse is to come.

I enjoyed this well written mystery with its well-crafted air of evil and mounting tension leading up to the unexpected conclusion. Here are all the series characters - Sister Hilaria, the mistress of novices, Mother Dorothy, the current prioress, Alice the would-be guard dog and DS Mill who finds any woman's desire to be a nun totally incomprehensible. There are plenty of touches of humour and an interesting insight into the life in a convent.

If you enjoy Peter Tremayne's Sister Fidelma series then you may enjoy this modern day equivalent. I find this series compulsive reading and I enjoy reading about life in a convent and how the nuns relate to the world.

I am really running out of things to type. The whole series is very enjoyable, but unfortunately authors come and go or change their subject.
