Second to Nun
A Giulia Driscoll MysteryBook - 2015
"Exciting and suspenseful." - Publishers Weekly (on Nun Too Soon) "Giulia is a sympathetic, well-drawn character who has built a full life for herself after she leaving the convent, but appealing touches of the former nun remain." - Booklist "Driscoll's second solo turn as a sleuth (after Nun Too Soon) offers a fun and fast read with a lot of appeal." - Library Journal "In Second to Nun, former nun and current private eye Giulia Driscoll tackles ghosts with the same wit and wisdom she uses to tackle crooks. Great fun." - Terrie Farley Moran, Agatha Award-Winning Author of the Read 'Em and Eat Mysteries "Loweecey's characters are colorful without being caricatures, and once again we're lucky that Giulia Driscoll left the convent behind. She solves the crime with a happy mix of online savvy, humor and intelligence." - Sheila Connolly, New York Times Bestselling Author of An Early Wake "Loweecey is herself a former nun, and she brings to Giulia all of this inner conflict, residual guilt, and disillusionment...and how can you not love an author who quotes from the movies Airplane and Young Frankenstein? Giulia's recent marriage adds a delightful dash of romance, but the real appeal of this series is her genuine likability and fiery independent streak that could never be hidden behind a veil." - Kings River Life Magazine "Loweecey has once again crafted a delightful, sassy, smart tale that will send the hair on the back of your head skyward and keep your eyes glued to the page. I loved it " - Jessie Chandler, Author of the Award-Winning Shay O'Hanlon Caper Series 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 s ances. 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.
