Book Review: Second to Nun by Alice Loweecey


Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this ebook, free of charge,from Henry Press, via Netgalley, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it


And now for something new for your Fall reading!



Synopsis:

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.

Review:
This was a quick and very funny read! I had not read the pre-story (Changing Habits), or the first book in the series (Nun Too Soon), but it was easy to read, as the author gives you needed background info. the chatracters are all quirk and unique (an ex-nun, hello!). The mystery at hand is solid, and the added side stories really help to set up all the involved characters, Giula is one of my new favorite characters, and I can't wait to read her next escapade (Nun But the Brave , coming out July 2016). Don't miss this new book, if you want something different for Fall reading!

About the Author
Baker of brownies and tormenter of characters, Alice Loweecey recently celebrated her thirtieth year outside the convent. She grew up watching Hammer horror films and Scooby-Doo mysteries, which explains a whole lot. When she’s not creating trouble for Giulia Driscoll, she can be found growing her own vegetables (in summer) and cooking with them (the rest of the year).

  1. I have seen this book promoted in one of the emails I get! Looks like a lot of fun and I think Giulia sounds like a great heroine!
