A Darkly Hidden Truth by Donna Fletcher Crow

A Darkly Hidden Truth by Donna Fletcher Crow

From Goodreads:

More page-turning action from a popular author
Felicity has decided to become a nun. She departs to visit convents in spite of her mother's imminent arrival and Fr. Anselm's request that she and Fr. Antony recover a missing priceless Russian icon before the Patriarch of Moscow arrives at the community for Holy Week.
Felicity's discernment journey takes her to Rempstone, Norwich, London, and Walsingham, but her discovery of afriend's murdered body in a shallow grave, the disappearance of more icons, the shooting of a London art expert just after she visits him, the disappearance of Antony, and finally the abduction of Felicity and her mother teach her far more about motherhood, life, and love than she could learn in any convent retreat. Breathtaking chase scenes, mystical worship services, dashes through remote water-logged landscapes, the wisdom of ancientholy women, and the arcane rites of The Knights of St. John of Malta keep the pages turning. And will Felicity choose the veil--or Antony?

My Take:

This is the second book in the Monastery Murders Series.  You can see  a First Chapter Peak of the first book A Very Private Grave here.

Even though this is the second book in the series it can be read alone but I think that you will want to read the first book as well after you read this one. 

Like the description above says this book is filled with action and twists and turns and is truly a captivating mystery.  There is alot of history interwoven into the tale that makes it that much more interesting. If you like mysteries, historical fiction or just a good old fashioned good story this book will satisfy all those likes. 

I received a review copy from Kregel Publications.
