About An Unholy Communion

The newest offering in The Monastery Murders series, An Unholy Communion  (Lion Fiction).

Following the ancient tradition, ordinands from the College of the Transfiguration gather at first light on Ascension morning to sing their praises from the top of the college's tallest tower. Not one to miss any liturgy, Felicity finds herself swept up in worship as she listens to the timeless words. But her delight quickly turns to horror when a black-robed body hurtles over the precipice and lands at her feet. Her investigative instincts immediately kick in when she sees a double-headed snake emblem clutched in the lifeless hand. Was this suicide? Or murder?

My thoughts on An Unholy Communion

The author has a great way of making the reader feel as though they are in the book.  The descriptive scenery, really let the reader see where they were.  I also enjoyed the rich history that the author included in the book.  It was well researched and informative.  The mystery in the book was also intriguing and I kept reading to find out what happened, but the book moves really slooooooooow.  This is definitely not a fast read, but would be good for when you have just a few minutes to read.  You can read and absorb just small pieces at a time and not have that high level of adrenalin you get with some mystery books.

I recommend this to those who enjoy mystery books, but may not have the time to read one in one sitting.
