There are a few things you should know about this story.

1. Steven Spielberg is a character in this story who plays himself.

2. The author is a lawyer who can probably do this without the problems other authors would get into.

3. With this Sister J story the series has developed legs. This is a series that could run for many titles.

4. These two Sister J stories have formed a solid foundation that reminds me very much of an urban American version of Alexander Mccall Smith’s “THE NO. 1 LADIES’ DETECTIVE AGENCY” series of books set in Botswana and featuring Precious Ramotswe -- a character who is just as interesting and quirky as Sister J – though in different ways.

Smith is one of my all time favorite authors. I like all his books. We are both trained philosophers. So when I say Mr. Bell’s character set is similar to Mr. Smith’s I am looking at their quirkiness, intellectual integrity, and the abundant foundation each author provides to make their rather unbelievable character-set seem as real at the earth beneath them. There is also a universality to each character which would make them understandable throughout the world. I think Sister J would be loved and well understood in Japan.

5. In this book, #2 of the ‘Force of Habit’ series, the ground is prepared to launch a series of full length novels. Perhaps two or three more novellas could produce a few more strong secondary characters to create a universe of players that would give the great Alexander Mccall Smith a run for his money! (At least with his detective series.)

The story: Sister J has more troubles with her superiors; she kicks even bigger, badder, butts; and she faces ever greater danger.

The Force of Habit raises a dilemma: can someone act violently for the greater good? Can someone kick bad guys' asses to prevent a future crime? Many of us would say a big YES. But what if this someone is a nun? What does the Word of God say?

Don't get too serious about it, because Sister Justitia quickly solves this issue by listening to her call, and doing what needs to be done. During the process she always offers the Light for the sinners, so they can repent and turn to God. It's not her fault that they don't grab the opportunity.

This is a short and enjoyable read with fine humour.

Bell's humor is all over this short story, starting with the title. A nun finds herself with a calling to use physical force to stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves. Or to redeem those who need a stronger message to hear the truth. While this quick mystery is lighthearted, I do find the main premise a question worth considering. Are there times God would have His people stand up and fight for those who are defenseless? Would God approve of a little convincing with fists? I'm looking forward to a possible Force of Habit 3.

She just can't help herself--to helping others, that is. When it's her word vs. circumstances, Sister J sets put to uncover the truth--and in the process makes a decision that will change her life. I love this spunky character and her compassionate heart! James Scott Bell infuses this mystery with humor and warmth and plenty of action. Like with Force of Habit (1), I couldn't put this down until I finished it! Keep them coming, JSB! I look forward to more adventures from Sister J.

I was educated by the Ursuline nuns in the early 1960's. At the time the nuns wore the type of habit the Sister J wears. It is amusing that Sister J is very much like the sisters from 40 years ago and yet she behaves like a very modern woman. I was delighted that the story ended so that Sister J and can continue to "educate" people. She is one of the most interesting characters I have seen in a while.

A delightful, quick read with good humor and a mystery solved with little complication. I like Sister J's spirit, and the inner conflict between who she thinks she should be and who she really gives her depth and believability. If you are going to read this, definitely start with the first one.

I so thoroughly enjoyed Force of Habit that I immediately ordered And Then There Were Nuns, Force of Habit 2. I'll be reading through Force of Habit 50 if this author would write them more quickly, and with as much humor, warmth and fun as he wrote these. Perfect blend of justice and caring.

Go Sister! Such a good heart! Knowing how to protect yourself & others in unconventional ways while being a nun is intriguing. The desire to serve God, to assist in carrying out justice, to pull waywards back from the brink of no return....this nun is becoming very adept at her calling.
