The Nun and the Narc

Catherine Castle takes readers on an adventuresome journey with this inspirational mystery. Sister Margaret Mary is feisty and loyal and absolutely loveable. Her kind heart gets her in to trouble but her keen mind helps her out of some sticky situations. She seemed so much more relatable when she was dealing with her doubts and insecurities. I also enjoyed the fact that she had a temper to match her tresses. Jed is just a DEA agent trying to do his job and I loved witnessing his reactions to Maggie. Even though he spends his life lying, he is pretty much, what you see is what you get. When he is being honest it is refreshingly blunt and I could appreciate that. The supporting characters were great additions and while I would have liked to had more details for some of them I appreciated the flavor they added to the story. Even though there was a lot more violence than I was expecting it wasn’t too graphic to curb my enjoyment. If you are looking for a fun mystery then this is a good choice whether you are looking to unwind at the end of the day or relax on your day off.

Sister Margaret Mary’s heart might be in the right place but she ends up at the wrong place at the wrong time. Interrupting a drug deal, the not-yet-a-nun is kidnapped by Mexican drug lords. The good news she has God and undercover DEA Agent Jed Bond on her side. Jed doesn’t believe a nun should look, laugh or kiss like Maggie and he’s determined to rescue her. But after all her adventures will Maggie take her final vows or has God offered her a new option in life?

Book Blurb for The Nun and the Narc

Where novice Sister Margaret Mary goes, trouble follows. When she barges into a drug deal the local Mexican drug lord captures her. To escape she must depend on undercover DEA agent Jed Bond. Jed’s attitude toward her is exasperating, but when she finds herself inexplicably attracted to him, he becomes more dangerous than the men who have captured them by making her doubt her decision to take her final vows. Escape back to the nunnery is imperative, but life at the convent, if she can still take her final vows, will never be the same.

Nuns shouldn’t look, talk, act, or kiss like Sister Margaret Mary O’Connor—at least that’s what Jed Bond thinks. She hampers his escape plans with her compulsiveness and compassion and in the process makes Jed question his own beliefs. After years of walling up his emotions in an attempt to become the best agent possible, Sister Margaret is crumbling Jed’s defenses and opening his heart. To lure her away from the church would be unforgivable—to lose her unbearable.
