Book Review: Alice Loweecey "Nun Too Soon"

Thank you to NetGalley.com & Henery Press for a digital copy of this wonderful book, in exchange for my honest review.


Description

Welcome back Giulia Falcone-Driscoll, the hilariously droll and popular former-nun-turned-PI! 
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.

Books in the Giulia Driscoll Humorous Mystery Series:

NUN TOO SOON (#1)
SECOND TO NUN (#2) Fall 2015


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 Falcone-Driscoll, she can be found growing her own vegetables (in summer) and cooking with them (the rest of the year).

_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_



It was a quick and easy read, overall a fun book. Especially the parts where "The Scoop" shows up are hilarious! It wasn't a predictable "who done it" - I was sooooo wrong throughout the book. The DI team is a lovable bunch of different characters. 

I did have some problems starting to like the main character though. Usually, during the first couple of pages I'm starting to picture the characters in my head, but Giulia is still just a blur for me.

The story was fun to read, but "Nun Too Soon" won't make it into my all time favorite list.
