Second To Nun by Alice Loweecey is the second book in the “Giulia Driscoll” mystery series. Publisher: Henery Press, September 2015
The Other Side has hired Driscoll Investigations. The owner of Stone’s Throw Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast insists that a tarot reading told her to hire Giulia to evict the family ghost. Since the ghost is cutting gas lines and flooding cellars, Giulia and her husband Frank head to the B&B to discover the real perpetrator.
The client also has a family legend: A highwayman who stole a pile of gold. Giulia has a pile of suspects, including a psychic the client hired to conduct weekly séances. So much for romance with Frank at this getaway.
Instead, Giulia’s juggling arson, creepy clown dolls, and the psychic going all Exorcist on her. Then the ghost tries to push the client off the lighthouse and throw Giulia down three flights of stairs. It should’ve known better than to mess with an ex-nun. Giulia has connections and she’s about to use them.
Gold, Clowns, and Physics, Oh My! That is what faces Giulia when she takes on her latest case that brings her and Frank to a bed and breakfast where someone is trying to destroy the client’s business. Is it a spirit or is there a human factor afloat? Inside the cover of the fast-paced and action filled drama awaits the answer and what a fun ride it was to be with Giulia on this outing. The author knows a thing or two in her descriptive style to tease me with haunts and the like. Most of the suspects are within reach and I loved how the author played them off of each other, providing me with clues then changing direction until the final reveal when it all fell into place. Giulia is such a fun heroine with her dogged pursuit of the truth and with Frank and her staff by her side; she’ll always fight for justice.
