Changing Habits by Alice Loweecey is a short story prequel to the “Giulia Driscoll” mystery series. Publisher: Henery Press, December 2014
The day Giulia Falcone jumped the wall—that’s code for leaving the convent—her sole possessions were the clothes on her back.
Four years later, she’s an official Private Investigator juggling a rash of church vessel thefts and her complete inability to find a wedding gown that doesn’t require her to steal a gold chalice for herself. She’s about to marry her boss despite all the advice about office romance.
Giulia is a champion multitasker. The Church is on her back to find the thief. Her all-natural co-worker is insisting she walk down the aisle to the soundtrack for The Sound of Music. Her fiancé’s relatives are overwhelming her with plans and advice and excitement. Piece of cake.
She can find the clue that unmasks the thief. She can keep an eye on the music. All she needs is a wedding gown for her own wedding. In four days. What could possibly go wrong?
I’ve been waiting for this short story that bridges the previous series and whet my appetite for the new series featuring Giulia Driscoll. Giulia is on the case while preparing for her upcoming wedding. This was a very enjoyable mystery and it was good to see the gang again. A must read for fans of this series.
