This prequel was a great way to get to know the Reverend Annabelle Dixon. She is just a wonderful character. She is a warm and Godly woman that has a very fun way about her. She is very bright and a joy to read about since she is rather quirky. Sister Mary is also a fun character. She is called the accidental nun by her friends. Sister Mary is caught in a terrible situation and so is not quite at her best. She keeps ending up at the wrong end of a police investigation. I was glad to be able to read this even after reading Murder at the Mansion.
Annabelle Dixon is able to see through all the confusing clues and find the things that are only obvious to her to draw the correct conclusion.
Another great read by Alison Golden.
