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.
Giulia has personality and a sense of justice that seems to bend to meet her needs and makes her life - at home and at DI - interesting. She takes the Silk Tie Killer Case but isn't too sure the accused isn't guilty. As she delves into the case, she begins to wonder a bit about his charismatic attorney as well. Her great memory serves her well as does her ability to keep silent from her convent days. But can she establish who the killer or killers are in time to save her own neck? Her husband, Frank, is back on the police force and this case is his too, so his viewpoint (and concerns) are shared in Giulia's personal life. Well written, with unique characters, more than a touch of humor, and suspense, NUN TOO SOON is a great read. I may have to back up and read the other books by Loweecey now that I have a taste of Giulia.Baker of brownies and tormenter of characters, Alice Loweecey recently celebrated her thirtieth year outside the convent. She grew up watching Hammer Horror and Scooby-Doo Mysteries, which might explain 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).
