An Unholy Communion by Donna Fletcher Crow

More 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 Take:I did not know that priests could get married.  I do not know much about the Catholic faith so some of what was discussed in this book about that I wasn't aware of.  I thought the author brought the mystery around fairly well and was pleased that it was done in a tasteful way.  I liked the descriptions of the sights very much as I doubt I will ever get to visit these places and it made me feel like I was there. Very enjoyable read but definately not a fast read so be prepared to take some time with this book.  Would recommend it if you like mysteries.

I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.

  1. Thank you so much for your review. it's important to understand that Antony is an Anglican priest (e.e. Church of England, Episcopalian)their priests have always been fully free to marry. If he were Roman Catholic we would have a very different story, indeed. Blessings!
