Nuns just want to have fun! But when three former Catholic nuns, Coito GottTheodora Suora andRegina Grant have too much fun and get in trouble with the law, they become nuns on the run.
Driving back to Washington D.C. where they work at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Parts, the three sisters are arrested in Tennessee. After defeating the local deputy in strip poker, they escape from jail, and are pursued by the zealous Detective Schmuck Hole, who has personally offered a $10,000 reward for their capture on the 700 Club. Little do they know that when the three sisters visit the Washington Monument, their lives will change forever.
Set in 1979, The Three Sisters is a humorous, adult satire that skewers not only organized religion, but the government, the media, intellectuals, corporate greed and every other part of the establishment. Maybe not the greatest story ever told, but possibly the funniest.
“Blessed are they who read The Three Sisters, for they shall inherit eternal laughter.” — Matthew 5:66

About Bryan Taylor:
Bryan Taylor is a double PK, a preacher’s kid of a preacher’s kid. With that legacy he faced two destinies, being an unhappy triple PK (Jubilees 17:23, “He that is born unto the son of a preacher and himself preaches shall be miserable until his dying day and suffer eternal damnation.”), or being sacrilegious and happy.
He decided to forsake the Southern Baptists for Catholicism, but when he applied to join a convent, he was rejected (sex discrimination!), so he decided to do the next best thing: write a novel about the three nuns he would most like to meet.
Bryan Taylor was born in Louisiana, grew up in Michigan and Texas, went to school in Tennessee, South Carolina and California, taught in Switzerland for a year, and has traveled to 50 countries, more than any Pope except Saint John Paul II. He now lives in California, which is one of the few places with people crazier than him.

My Review:
This was hysterical. With that being said, I am a Catholic and some of the stuff almost went to far. However it is a satire and that added to laughter. To me it was a cross between "Sister Act" and "American Pie" There were ads and drawings that brought the parodies to life, and only made me laugh harder. The puns were great and so were the obvious play on words. This book covers confession, heretics, the crucifixion and everything in between. This book is not for your aunts or grandparents that go to church every week, and do not swear. I go to church on a regular basis, and I stilled laughed. I even shared some of the jokes withe my husband. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.

The book is available for giveaway in Print & ebook.  Print copy is restricted to the U.S. and Canada only.  U.S. or Canadian winners can choose either print or ebook.  ebook is available for international winners.
