NUN BUT THE BRAVE: A Giulia Driscoll Mystery by Alice Loweecey

Giulia is at work when her sister-in-law stumbles in and collapses on her.  She's drugged and unconscious when she hits the floor.  They take her to the hospital and then Giulia goes to meet her client.  The client has a missing sister that the police think is probably dead or ran off to start a new life.  Giulia agrees to take the case.  And she wonders if her sister-in-law's odd drug combination is related to two deaths of young girls.  It's been a busy morning...

Henery Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published July 12th.

Giulia is an ex-nun and being a private eye sometimes conflicts with that.  Every now and again you have to lie or do something that goes against your moral grain.  But she's still a good PI, she just visits the confessional more often.

This was an interesting case for Giulia.  It involves survivalists, drugs, free love and more.  She goes undercover to find out more and almost gets too close and too involved.  It's a dangerous place for ex-nuns.

I enjoy reading about her relationship with her cop husband.  She's pregnant now and the bit of drugs she got involved with scared her for good reason.  I don't think she's going to hesitate on doing her job, though.  Giulia always gets her "man" or "woman"!
