July 1831. In the midst of their idyllic honeymoon

is soon interrupted by a missive from her new
father-in-law. A deadly incident involving a distant
relative of the Duke of Wellington has taken place at
an abbey south of Dublin, Ireland, and he insists
that Kiera and Gage look into the matter.

Intent on discovering what kind of monster could
murder a woman of the cloth, the couple travel to
Rathfarnham Abbey school. Soon a second nun is
slain in broad daylight near a classroom full of
young girls. With the sinful killer growing bolder,
the mother superior would like to send the students
home, but the growing civil unrest in Ireland
would make the journey treacherous.

Before long, Kiera starts to suspect that some of the
girls may be hiding a sinister secret. With the killer
poised to strike yet again, Kiera and Gage must
make haste and unmask the fiend, before their
matrimonial bliss comes to an untimely end…

  1. I adore historical English mysteries. At one time, I only read books of that time frame. These sound wonderful. I also love Abbeys and religious settings.


  2. These historical mysteries are very popular now. Good sounding book. I enjoyed the author’s background. I live in Nashville and quite familiar with Lipscomb University. A very good school and one not so easy to graduate with the honors the author got. All interesting information.
