Author Alice Loweecey writes a mystery like no other. There is a unique flare to her story telling that draws the reader in quickly and keeps us ensnared until the book is finished. NUN AFTER THE OTHER is no exception. Wait, yes, it is. It’s even better than the four books that came before!
NUN AFTER THE OTHER, book five in this delightful series, is a wonderful whodunit that kept me guessing through every twist and turn. I honestly didn ...more

Giulia is quickly becoming my favorite cozy mystery character. This is the fifth book in the series. While you definitely can read this as a standalone if you want the interesting and sometimes zany backstory then start with book one.

The characters are unique and well developed with quirks and interesting personalities.
There is a balance between proper language, funny moments and action filled sequence of events.
The plot is a roller-coaster ride with an affection seeking con-artist chihuahua, a no-nonsense nun, a smoking ghost, a shady developer, intrigue and a baby on board.

I enjoyed this although I still find some of the backstory and rules of the universe a bit difficult to get my head around. But the mystery is good, the characters are fun and the side characters are engaging. I’ll keep checking in on these - I’m keen to see what happens when Zlatan arrives!
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 t ...more
