This review is from: Vow of Chastity (Veronica Black) (Kindle Edition)
Sister Joan is aware that there is something wrong. The children in the small moorland school at which she teaches are being unnaturally well behaved. One of the new comers has written a verse which suggests something evil and there are the usual tensions between the farmers' children and the Romany children.

Are the small thefts from the convent chapel of daffodils and candles linked in any way to the feeling of evil which people keep mentioning to Sister Joan? When a body appears in the convent chapel the hunt is on for a murderer and Sister Joan finds herself being confronted with some interesting dilemmas.

This is the second book in this interesting and thoughtful mystery series. I thought the tensions between Sister Joan's natural inclinations and her vow of obedience to her Order - the Daughters of Compassion - was very well done. I liked the characters of the nuns too and the way they are developing. The relationship between Sister Joan and Mother Dorothy is interesting and seems to bring out the best in both of them.

If you like something a bit different in mysteries then you may like this series. They are well written and well plotted and keep the reader guessing. There is little on the page violence but the darker side of human nature is not glossed over and hidden.

I have a thing about nuns, so I picked up Vow of Silence first. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautifully written, fascinating take on a mystery, set in modern world but still managed to create that mystique and aura that surrounds convent life. Couldn't wait for the next one and got Vow of Chastity straight away. Did not disappoint. Completely brillliant writer and I've got the list of the rest of Black's Vow books ready to buy and enjoy.
