NUN TOO SOON A Giulia Driscoll Mystery #1 by Alice Loweecey

Giulia is an ex-nun.  She's married to a cop now and runs her own detective agency.  I went to a parochial grade school and was taught by nuns.  I couldn't miss reading this one!

Henery Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  The book has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

This story is rich with characters you won't forget.   Giulia is unique enough to carry the whole story herself, but her staff is even more fun.  We have a pregnant office administrator, a young man who's a computer geek, and a temporary girl in training to fill in during pregnancy leave who has tattoos and an odd haircut.  Their skills all complement each other and there's a lot of humor shared in the office.

When Giulia takes on the Silk Tie Killer, she does it for justice.  The accused man says he's innocent and she's looking for a way to prove it.  It doesn't help when her client is someone she despises.  His friends aren't much better.  What she and her husband don't realize is just how dangerous this guy is.  He didn't kill his girlfriend but it doesn't mean he's innocent. I don't know many nuns that practice self-defense classes and learn Ninja-type skills, but it's good thing Giulia has.

This is the first of a new series and I really enjoyed this first book.  I'll be watching for the next one in the series.  I know Giulia will get in trouble again...
