Nun Too Soon by Alice Loweecey is the first book in the new “Giulia Driscoll” humorous mystery series. Publisher: Henery Press, January 2014 [Note: Read more about Giulia Falcone-Driscoll’s backstory in the three previously release novels from the “Falcone & Driscoll Investigation” series.]
Giulia Falcone-Driscoll has just taken on her first impossible client: The Silk Tie Killer. He’s hired Driscoll Investigations to prove his innocence and they have only thirteen days to accomplish it. Talk about being tried in the media. Everyone in town is sure Roger Fitch strangled his girlfriend with one of his silk neckties. And then there’s the local TMZ wannabes—The Scoop—stalking Giulia and her client for sleazy sound bites.
On top of all that, her assistant’s first baby is due any second, her scary smart admin still doesn’t relate well to humans, and her police detective husband insists her client is guilty. About this marriage thing—it’s unknown territory, but it sure beats ten years of living with 150 nuns.
Giulia’s ownership of Driscoll Investigations hasn’t changed her passion for justice from her convent years. But the more dirt she digs up, the more she’s worried her efforts will help a murderer escape. As the client accuses DI of dragging its heels on purpose, Giulia thinks The Silk Tie Killer might be choosing one of his ties for her own neck.
Giulia is back and I’m so thrilled that she graced my path in this amusing whodunit that hosts a slick and savvy former nun who takes no gumption from anyone. I loved the flow and the execution in this fast-paced and action-filled drama that kept me engaged and entertained from beginning to end. Boasting an exceptionally diverse cast of characters, humorous banter and witty repartee and just plain fun in the offices of Driscoll Investigation, this is a brilliant return and I can’t wait to see what cases Giulia and her team tackle next.
