The intense humid heat of summer had not yet attacked the city. A slight breeze carried the scent of fruits and vegetables from a small shop as we passed. You a teacher? he asked. Yes uess? Was I very schoolmarmish at lunch?. It’s June and you’re not working. Just seemed the obvious thing. Poetry, I said, to allay his fears. I’ll be teaching a course this fall on Poetry and the Contemporary American Woman. I laughed at my private joke

I loved this book and have thoroughly enjoyed the series - I'm now on the last 3 of 17! What is interesting about the books are the people and the puzzles. They're not action-packed page turners, they're puzzles that call out for solution and you get to discover it as the protagonist, Chris Bennett, uncovers information and works it out. She is a genuinely nice human being who cares about people and wants to help them and find justice for them.

I was looking for a pleasantly engaging mystery to read while I was caring for my infant granddaughter. This was perfect. I wanted to learn more about the characters and was kept interested by the twists in the plot.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was not edge of your seat exciting, but it still kept me up late reading. The main character was very well developed and a very likeable person.

This book tells the tale of the solving of a 40-year old murder mystery involving idiot-savant male twins by a recently-left-the-convent ex-nun. The methodical research performed by the virginal young woman sleuth and how she analyzes this information is a good story in itself. The story of how she is learning how to fit into the real world after having spent half her 30 year life in a convent is another intereating story, such as how she goes into New York city to do research on this cold case, driving her car and only bringing a pittance of money, recalling when, as a nun, 25 cents in her pocket was sufficient for a trip to town (enough for a phone call); of course she is shocked to find out the price of parking and of making copies at the library. Christine Bennett, the ex-nun, is a very likeable, well educated, analytical new sleuth. The extremely close relationship between the idiot-savant identical twins is fascinating as well as touching. Christine's budding relationship with the handsome young police sergeant who helps her in her solving this case is an budding story, continuing in later books, as she's had no experience dating, let alone being attracted before to a man; in fact, she hasn't seen herself in a mirror for 15 years, except for one forbidden peek once as a nun, and she still can't bring herself to look in the mirror until late in the book, as her newly-found modern womanhood is discovered and blooms. READ THIS BOOK -- it's a hidden gem of a mystery. I liked it so much after only a couple chapters that I ordered the rest of the books for this series.

The detective character in this series (and this is the first of many) is a former nun, Christine Bennett. She has recently left a convent that she entered while still in her mid-teens (she was an orphan and this seemed the best place for her to be). She has inherited a house from an aunt and has enough money so that she's free to accept a low-paying teaching position (she appears to have only one course!) that will likely leave her with spare time to solve murder mysteries.

Chris is likeable, as are most of the characters in this book. She takes on the task of trying to find out if a developmentally challenged man who spent 40 years in a psychiatric facility for murdering his mother really did it. At stake is whether the community she lives in will OK a home that her developmentally challenged cousin lives in to move to an old house in her town. The man is one of twins who had special gifts - savants -- including the ability to recite word for word everything they hear. Oddly enough, they refuse to speak to the police about what happened to their mother -- who is found dead in the apartment with them. Chris goes at this with an open mind, but the more she investigates, the more she sees that there are others with motive and opportunity for this murder. In the course of investigating, she meets a detective, Jack, with whom there is mutual attraction.

If you like cozy procedurals (Chris does much what a police detective would do), I highly recommend this book. Don't be put off by the former-nun character -- this is not a book that preaches at you.

I love mysteries and this was quite good. Enjoyed her having been a nun and male character being a cop.

This is the first book in an incredible series. Every single book is a gem. I've kept all mine and read them over from time to time always enjoying them very much. If you haven't read any of the Christine Bennett mysteries you should start now. They are best read from the first to the last in the series as it is also the continuing story of the life of Christine Bennett Brooks.
A good mystery that was 40 years old. An intelligent young woman that does not lose site of her goal and brings twin savant brothers together 40years after they were separated and solves their mother's murder. The characters are all very human and believable. An enjoyable read that I read in one sitting.
