“Exciting and suspenseful.” – Publishers Weekly (on Nun Too Soon)
“How much trouble can a snarky, no-nonsense ex-nun stir up while investigating a potentially haunted lighthouse? Plenty! Between a fireside arsonist, a murderous ghost, and a deadly family legend, Giulia Driscoll has her hands full. Alice Loweecey has once again crafted a delightful, sassy, smart tale that will send the hair on the back of your head skyward and keep your eyes glued to the page. I loved it!” – Jessie Chandler, Author of the Award-Winning Shay O'Hanlon Caper Series
The Other Side has hired Driscoll Investigations. The owner of Stone’s Throw Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast insists that a tarot reading told her to hire Giulia to evict the family ghost. Since the ghost is cutting gas lines and flooding cellars, Giulia and her husband Frank head to the B&B to discover the real perpetrator.
The client also has a family legend: A highwayman who stole a pile of gold. Giulia has a pile of suspects, including a psychic the client hired to conduct weekly séances. So much for romance with Frank at this getaway.
Instead, Giulia’s juggling arson, creepy clown dolls, and the psychic going all Exorcist on her. Then the ghost tries to push the client off the lighthouse and throw Giulia down three flights of stairs. It should’ve known better than to mess with an ex-nun. Giulia has connections and she’s about to use them.

Baker of brownies and tormenter of characters, Alice Loweecey recently celebrated her thirtieth year outside the convent. She grew up watching Hammer horror films and Scooby-Doo mysteries, which explains a whole lot. When she’s not creating trouble for Giulia Driscoll, she can be found growing her own vegetables (in summer) and cooking with them (the rest of the year).
In Loweecey's diverting follow-up to Nun Too Soon (2015), B&B owner MacAllister "Mac" Stone approaches former nun turned private eye Giulia Driscoll when strange events occur at her B&B and nearby lighthouse at Conneaut Lake in Pennsylvania. Mac worries that the legendary family ghost wants her to leave, but Giulia and her cop husband, Frank, believe that earthly motives are more likely involved, such as searches for a reputed hidden treasure or attempts to grab Mac's desirable property. She and Frank stay at the B&B to assess guests and townspeople as possible suspects. Soon episodes of theft, vandalism, fire, and mysterious sobbing complicate Giulia's investigation, and a s ance conducted by a dubious medium causes the PI to wonder if the so-called supernatural incidents are actually ploys by Mac to drum up business. Readers will enjoy the lively interplay among Giulia, her husband, her detective agency staff, and her fellow B&B denizens.
