Unbeknownst to them they will be drawn into another murder investigation when one of the nuns is found murdered by the water. Soon all the evidence is focusing on a fellow nun but when she turns up missing Bea, her friends and the police chief will have to rethink their whole premise for the crime. One of the lines of inquiry leads one of Bea's guests to believe their might be a parody with Agatha Christie's And Then They Were None. Although no one will take it seriously, Bea can't help but see some similarities.
Although she has a knack for solving mysteries this one is even baffling her. Along with the investigation she also has to battle her own demons starting with Levi, a man she said she wouldn't get involved with but did. Soon not only does she have to face Levi about the lies she told she will also have to face her friends. It becomes an emotional roller coaster to keep the investigation on track and to juggle the fall out she suffers with Levi, especially when he becomes involved with the case. With the case revolving around the remaining nuns, Bea sets up a deadly game of cat and mouse that may put her and her friends at risk even with help only moments away.
I enjoyed this story thoroughly, I had never read one in the series before and only chose it based on the fact that it was about nuns being killed. I had to know the reason behind it. The author does a great job of keeping you in the dark and due to that made it a quick read. Her characters are likable and believable. Also, there is references to Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, I was so curious I ended up watching the 2015 mini-series with Sam Neill. I could see where the similarities were after watching it and added to the atmosphere of the book.
