A Habit Forming Mystery Series

It's been over a year since we first met, Giulia Falcone, the innocent and charming nun who jumped the convent walls. She is author, Alice Loweecey's, heroine in the Falcone & Driscoll Investigation series. The author's first book was FORCE OF HABIT, a mystery where Giulia adjusts to a new job at an investigative firm, and the charismatic ex-cop turned PI, Frank Driscoll, in a new world away from the convent.

The second book in this well-crafted trilogy, BACK IN THE HABIT, sends Giulia back into the convent. Forcing her undercover, where she must don her old habit to try to investigate a Novice's death. Giulia must confront the past -- her angst against the holy Church. If that's not horrifying enough for the former nun, she must also live with it, and her former Mother Superior who's hired her investigative firm. Along the way, Giulia needs to find the strength to let go of long-ago fears, solve the mystery and salvage a budding romance with her boss, Frank. But what she finds along the way is Hell, and anything but holy.

FORCE OF HABIT and BACK IN THE HABIT are habit forming to say the least. Loweecey's series are full of mystery, mayhem, romance and interesting characters. And, after all, who better to write these delicious mysteries than author, Alice Loweecey, a former nun herself.
