When Emma Sharpe is summoned to a convent on the Maine coast, it's partly for her art crimes work with the FBI, partly because of her past with the religious order. At issue is a mysterious painting depicting scenes of Irish lore and Viking legends, and her family's connection to the work. But when the nun who contacted her is murdered, it seems legend is becoming deadly reality.

This was my first and. very likely, last Neggers novel. I could have had more fun watching paint dry. To call this romantic suspense is a misnomer as it is neither. The one sex scene is so tame and short it is not surprising that so many Americans are as puritanical as the author. Nothing much really happens in the first three quarters of the novel except speculation and descriptions of foliage (and the reader easily figuring out whodunit not thanks to any clues from the author but by an elementary process of elimination). The denouement is less than convincing in the motivation of the antagonist. Don't waste two nights of your life struggling through this tripe.

This is the fist book in the Sharpe and Donovan series. You meet Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan who are two FBI agents. They work together to solve a murder of nun and a relationship begins. It kept my interest right to the end. I didn't know who was the killer until the very end. Looking forward to Heron's Cove, the next book in this series.

Refreshing! Saint's Gate is more of a murder suspense thriller than the typical mass murder, serial killer thrillers. I was immediately drawn into the story about a Nun being killed in a Convent. The mystery is who done it and why and why are people dying related to a mysterious painting that seems to have disappeared. Great Read!

Another good book by Carla Neggers pairs a former novice turned FBI agent with another Fed to probe the murder of a nun and its connection to a painting. The author makes good use of location both in New England and Ireland for the story.
