    Sylvia the prostitute and Father Christopher the priest take us on a mysterious journey through England. In the process, they learn things about each other and themselves. This is a fun mystery, as well as a beautiful story of self-discovery and friendship. The characters are rich in development, easy to love and empathize with. The plot moves at a good pace, and the mystery kept me guessing all the way through to the end. There is no strong language or graphic scenes of any sort, which makes th [...]

    While billed as a mystery, The Book of Sylvia is as much a character study of the two protagonists. Sylvia and Father Christopher make an unlikely but believable couple of sleuths as they try to track down the money stolen by one of Sylvia's "clients". The best part of the book is seeing their friendship grow and the changes they make in themselves as a result. Mr Miller's writing style makes for an easy, quick read-which means the book ends too soon. I'd like a glimpse of these characters sever [...]

Sylvia has just been arrested after being found in the company of a gentleman accused of stealing money from an armored truck. What does Sylvia do once released from jail? Sets out to prove the gentleman innocent. From page one, hilarity wreaks havoc. Michael Scott Miller has done a superb job of capturing the essence of Catholicism and [...]

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my review. An overall interesting mystery. It did have a few minor editing errors that were somewhat distracting. I really enjoyed the back and forth perspectives of the two main characters, you got to get different impressions of the same events from both people. They end up helping each other in an unlikely partnership. The ending was a bit of a surprise to me, and I'm not sure I like it, but it works. I like how another reviewer sai [...]

    a delightful read, very entertaining!


  • Cheryl

    2 (and a half) out of 5 stars.Some of the characters and relationships weren't developed nearly enoughd the whole idea was kind of goofy. It is nice to pass time, but not my bag in general.


  • Laurie Collins

    I don't understand the four stars. I couldn't finish this book. I wanted to like it. It sounds so cute and that's what I was in the mood for. I skimmed for a bit, then just stopped.


  • Iris Smale

    Loved this book. It was an easy read - I didn't even skip to the end like I usually do. Kept my interest, was surprised by the way it turned out. Will check out more by this author.
