The Case of the Sin City Sister by Lynne Hinton

When Eve's biological sister goes missing, the nun heads to Las Vegas to track her down before it's too late.

Years ago, Eve heard God's call to become a nun, but her recent stint moonlighting at her father's detective agency invigorates her so much that she's wrestling with her vocation. She's working with him on a case involving a miner in New Mexico when alarming news develops: her sister Dorisanne is missing. The authorities won't act without evidence of a crime, but Eve knows something suspicious – and possibly deadly – is afoot. Challenged to put her newfound gifts as a PI to the test, Sister Eve heads west to Las Vegas to uncover clues about her sister's whereabouts.

What nefarious scheme has Dorisanne become involved in? Is her life in danger? And what is Dorisanne's estranged husband hiding? Sister Eve will discover there's always more going on in Sin City than meets the eye.

When I picked up Lynne Hinton’s The Case of the Sin City Sister, I hadn’t read the first novel in the Divine Private Detective Agency Mystery series, Sister Eve, Private Eye, but I had no problem quickly getting into and enjoying this second one. Hinton tells her story at a steady, well-established pace with amusing sleuthing that kept me intrigued and guessing. Though this novel does involve plenty of mystery, plenty of focus also falls on the characters and their relationships and introspection. Eve, as a nun who enjoys riding a motorcycle, is an interesting main character and oftentimes surprised me as she searched Las Vegas for her sister. Overall, The Case of the Sin City Sister is an interesting and entertaining read. Fans of mysteries should definitely check it out.
