An Unholy Communion by Donna Fletcher Crow


The newest offering in The Monastery Murders series, An Unholy Communion (Lion Fiction).
Following the ancient tradition, ordinands from the College of the Transfiguration gather at first light on Ascension morning to sing their praises from the top of the college's tallest tower. Not one to miss any liturgy, Felicity finds herself swept up in worship as she listens to the timeless words. But her delight quickly turns to horror when a black-robed body hurtles over the precipice and lands at her feet. Her investigative instincts immediately kick in when she sees a double-headed snake emblem clutched in the lifeless hand. Was this suicide? Or murder?

Meet Donna: 
Donna Fletcher Crow is author of more than thirty-five novels. She has twice won first place in the Historical Fiction category from the National Association of Press Women, and has also been a finalist for "Best Inspirational Novel" from the Romance Writers of America. She is a member of The Arts Centre Group, and Sisters in Crime.


My Thoughts:

"An Unholy Communion" is the third book of "The Monastery Murders" and although it can probably be read as a stand-alone, my recommendation is to read it as part of the series. One may not get the feel of the characters that they would get if all the books were read in order.

In book 3, Felicity witnesses a murder that has been deemed as a suicide. With subtle clues and wonderful descriptions, one can get swept away in trying to figure out the mystery. I have read all the books in the series and have nothing but praise for Donna Fletcher Crow's attention to detail and lively characters. I haven't decided if Felicity or Father Anthony is my favorite. I seem to go back and forth between them, and have grown to love both!

Donna's books demonstrate her love for British history. They are well researched and deeply detailed - making the reader feel like they are truly in the story. I think that is one of the things I most love about her writing style. Her books are to be savored and not read quickly (in my opinion), and I always block a nice amount of time to dedicate to just reading slowly and savoring them.

Make sure to add this book - and series if you haven't read any of them - to your must read list today. These books are great reads! Recommended to those that love books about British history (especially church history) and those that love cozy mysteries.

Please note - this dapples with a darker side and deals with issues of the occult.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher for this tour. I was not required to write a positive review, but instead, one that gives my honest opinion.

  1. Theresa, I'm so glad you have enjoyed the whole series. I do think it's important that the characters are developing. Antony is so happy that Felicity is showing signs of growing up!
