About the book 
Nuns and murder and ghosts, oh my! Here comes Giulia Driscoll again, and boy, is she in for it this time.
It starts when a frenzied Chihuahua leads Giulia and Frank Driscoll to the body of a nun in the street near a convent. The nuns fear they’re being harassed by the biggest developer in town and quickly embrace Giulia as their savior.
Of course the former nun who exposed the drug ring run by a priest and nun will save their home and discover the murderer.
And of course not only Giulia takes this job, but also all the other jobs clamoring for her attention. The result: Driscoll Investigations is pushed to its limit.
Then Giulia’s brother falls into a coma and she brings his kids to her house. Talk about a crash course in parenting for pregnant Giulia!
Did we mention the convent ghost? She loves the house, hates the nuns, and chain-smokes. Why couldn’t Giulia’s first honest-to-goodness ghost be shy and sweet?
More important, does the ghost hate the nuns—or the developer—enough to indulge in a bit of murder to liven up the afterlife?
And others are saying 
While I am not Catholic and was spared a religious school upbringing, these tough-talking nuns did intimidate me.

Author Alice Loweecey writes a mystery like no other. There is a unique flair to her storytelling that draws the reader in quickly and keeps us ensnared until the book is finished.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
This was a delightful page-turner. Giulia is a fun sleuthing friend that readers will fall into step with. This was one of the best books from Henry Press, and after you read this, you and the ghosts will be begging for more.
~Bibliophile Reviews
This book had me laughing over and over again… Add the intriguing group of older nuns to the mix as well as a ghost with some skills and you get a cozy mystery that will keep you amused and hooked all at the same time.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
The “Guilia Driscoll Mysteries” (my aka “The Nun Books”) are a charm-filled set of thrilling cozy mysteries. Ms. Loweecey deftly shows that life and death can both be adventures – no matter which side of the veil one is on.

And I thought
I love book covers.  Especially when they cleverly  give insight into the story without giving anything away.  
The little nun mobile is just comical to me and draws me into what is waiting inside. 

As I turn the pages I am not disappointed.  This is only the second book that I have read in the series. 

I am charmed by these characters.

Giulia can at times be hilarious and then serious when she needs to be.  I enjoy her character and her reluctance to chase ghosts but she steps up to the plate to solve the mysteries.  

The nuns living in the convent are engaging and funny as they each have their different reactions to the ghost that is living in their midst.  

I especially liked the part when older nun called out the camera man. "The Scoop"  can sometimes be a thorn in Giada's side but ultimately he really ends up helping solve the mysteries.  

Our ghost in residence is hilarious disrupting the nuns and trying to thwart the sale of the house.   

I enjoyed reading book 5 better than book 4 making me want to go back and read all the rest.  But I wanted to do that before. 

This is a great series that will keep drawing you in and making you 
want to

I received a complimentary copy.
