This book has been on my To-Be-Read pile for a while and I am sorry it’s taken me so long to get around to it. My apologies to Ms. Castle.
Sister Margerite O’Connor is not your average nun. All she had to do was go to Mexico and help with a missionary trip. What could possibly go wrong–for a nun? Something must have because the good Sister found herself kidnapped, alongside handsome Jed Bond. Jed tries to convince her he is a secret special agent, working an undercover drug deal. After a few shared kisses, he can’t believe a nun could kiss like Maggie or look like her.
Mayhem follows them as they escape their captures, only to have Maggie insist on stopping to help deliver the dug lord’s baby. Escaping again, they only made it as far as the nearest church when Maggie again insisted on stopping to pray, despite the hail of bullets on their tail. Jed is convinced she is going to get them both killed.
In the end, though, it’s the secret DEA agent who needs rescuing from the pretty nun. And not just for his life but for his eternal one too. Without preaching or harping, Maggie shows this hardened agent how to turn his life to God. Doing so might cost him any chance for a future with Maggie, but ultimately he learns there is a better–and higher–will over our immediate desires.
When Maggie finds herself kidnapped again, this time without Jed, she faces the choices and consequences of her decisions.
This book was fast paced with the action and suspense. Who were the good and bad guys? Sometimes it wasn’t always clear. The inspirational message was subtle, but strong, without slapping the reader with the brimstone mallet. The chemistry between Sister Maggie and Jed is well done and believable. The mayhem that they fall into is incredible. Some of the dialogue, especially Maggie’s, made me laugh out loud.
