Read full description of the books Sammy Keyes and the Sisters of Mercy:Although I'm only giving this three stars, I still really enjoyed it and would gladly recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun mystery in an easy read. I just felt it wasn't QUITE as tightly written as the first two books (or my favorite, "S.K. & the Wild Things", which comes much later but which was my first read of the series). It felt like a few too many characters. It takes a while to be able to keep all the nuns straight, and the end was a bit more predictable or easy to figure out. So, bottom line, I wouldn't recommend starting here, but if you've read any of the others and liked them, you'll probably enjoy this one, too. I know I'm going right on to read "The Runaway Elf"...and then I'm going to take a break and read something else. At least, until I get my hands on some more of these. They're kind of like a good junk food. Think pistachios...quick and easy to eat, but way better than most of the stuff you'd get out of a vending machine.
