Force of Habit: Sister Madeleine Investigates by Cash Peters

Sister Madeleine is a cloistered nun with a grim secret. A secret she's kept hidden for too long.

When, after four decades of seclusion deep in the English countryside, news reaches St. Winifred's that some old friends have started dying in odd and mysterious ways, it becomes clear that storm clouds are gathering once more, leaving her with no choice: she must abandon the security of the convent with its strange, backward ways, and re-enter the modern world, a world she barely understands any more, to pursue the killer.

Sister Madeleine is a unique character and one I immensly enjoyed getting to know.  Leaving behind a lucrative position with a government agency, she becomes a nun.  But when some of her old fellow employees start coming up dead, she decides to investigate on her own.  It's a perfect time for her to claim an inheritance left to her, but after four years in the convent, entering the 'real'world is a confusing experience for Madeleine.  If you enjoy a page-turning cozy mystery, then you'll want to give Force of Habit a try.  Great characters, a twisted plot, entertaining situations and really good writing, I can't wait for book two!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
