"Thief in Retreat is a thoroughly absorbing, sharply drawn story with a protagonist who is courageous, intelligent, and endearing. Sister Agatha, with her restored Harley Davidson motorcycle and ex-police dog, Pax are a dynamite team that's hard to beat... I eagerly await Sister Agatha's next adventure." – Earlene Fowler, author of Delectable Mountains "Aimee and David Thurlo's nimble plotting leaves readers turning pages while Our Lady of Hope Monastery's compelling characters draw you into their richly textured world. Sister Agatha is a blessing and you'll believe in Prey for a Miracle!" --Julia Spencer-Fleming, Edgar finalist and author of To Darkness and to Death Our Lady of Hope is an aging monastery run by a cloistered order in rural New Mexico. Perennially cash-strapped for needed repairs and maintenance, when the local diocese offers to pay for a new water well it is, well, a godsend. But there's a catch – in return, they want the monastery to house a novice nun from a different order who needs a place to stay locally while she teaches at the Catholic school and an order to take responsibility for her while she's there. And Sister Josephine – Sister Jo as she likes to be called – is a handful. Loud, boisterous, free with her opinions, inappropriate, impulsive and snores loud enough to wake the dead, the young nun doesn't fit in well with the contemplative order and the older nuns of Our Lady of Hope. If the teeth-grinding of the older nuns and the repetitive deep sighs of the Reverand Mother weren't enough, there's also the increasingly dangerous sounding threats that arrive at the monestary. Since Sister Agatha has been involved in her fair share of investigations, there's no lack of people who might harbor a grudge against her. But is she really the target? And is Sister Jo – who arrived right before the threats began – somehow entangled in this increasingly dangerous web?

"Sister Agatha is an extern nun in the cloistered order at the Our Lady of Hope Monastery, located near a small New Mexican desert town. As an extern, Sister Agatha is the link between her cloistered sisters and the outside world. Usually this means running errands in the monastery's slowly dying car (dubbed the Anti-Chrysler) or on their motorcycle with Pax, the order's German shepherd, in the side car. Sometimes her duties involve something more - like when a local girl goes missing in the middle of the night and her mother's car is run off the road, leaving her mother injured and unconscious in the car's front seat." "Natalie Tannen is the eight-year-old niece of Father Mahoney and a controversial figure in the local community. She's claimed to have a guardian angel that only she can see, one who tells her things, and some of the locals have been connecting her with supposed miracles. Some people have wanted her to use her "powers" for miraculous cures or to reveal future events. However, it appears that someone has something far more sinister in mind. Now it's up to Sister Agatha not only to find and protect the missing girl, but in order to keep her safe, she must uncover the truth behind the gift and her "guardian angel" before it is too late."--BOOK JACKET.
