In SAINT’S GATE it appears legend is becoming
deadly reality when a nun is found murdered near a convent
on the Maine coast. Speaking of legendary status: the
winner of Carla’s contest is sure to gain just that among
family and friends for the delicious breakfasts she’ll be
making with the Stonewall Kitchen cast-iron, non-stick
Belgian Waffle Maker, Wild Maine Blueberry Syrup, and Wild
Maine Blueberry and Champagne Blueberry jams she wins. Two
additional winners will each receive a copy of one of
Carla’s backlist novels.
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.
Colin Donovan is one of the FBI’s most valuable assets—a
deep-cover agent who prefers to go it alone. He’s back home
in Maine after wrapping up his latest mission, but his
friend Father Bracken presents him with an intrigue of
murder, international art heists and a convent’s long-held
secrets that is too tempting to resist. As the danger
spirals ever closer, Colin is certain of only one thing—the
very intriguing Emma Sharpe is at the center of it all.
A ruthless killer has Emma and Colin in the crosshairs,
plunging them into a race against time and drawing them
deeper into a twisted legacy of betrayal and deceit.
