Book Review - The Case of The Sin City Sister by Lynne Hinton

Book Review

The Case of The Sin City Sister is the story of a nun named Eve Divine (pronounced Di-veen) who goes on a mission to Las Vegas with her cop friend, Daniel, to find her sister, Dorisanne.  The book is cute and quirky, and it actually does have quite a bit of adventure and excitement.  At times, the storyline slows down a bit, but it doesn't last for long.  The main character, Eve, comes across as being a bit naive, which can be sort of annoying, but you have to cut her a break, always remembering she IS a nun.  Also, she does redeem herself several times when she displays some amazing detective skills, and even though at first you might think she learned these skills from her dad (who is also a detective), it becomes obvious that it's more likely that she was born a great detective. I really enjoyed the fact that the story takes place in both New Mexico and Las Vegas, and the author, Lynne Hinton, has the ability to actually bring the reader into the story, so you feel like you're actually right there with Eve.  If you're interested in reading a clean-cut, light-hearted, and funny adventure, this book is for you.  Personally, I'm used to reading much more extreme books, so this one was a change of pace for me, but I still really enjoyed it. Four stars - and I can't wait to read the first book in the series!
