Giulia Falcone is convinced she's going to Hell. First, because she left the convent. Second, her new job with a private investigator has her sneaking around and lying. Adjusting to life in the outside world isn't easy. Makeup, dating, and sex are all new to her. And despite a crush on her boss Frank Driscoll—a foul-mouthed, soft-hearted ex-cop—Giulia is sure he'd never fall for an ex-nun.
Her first case involves drop-dead handsome Blake Parker, a man with immense wealth and an ego to match. He and his fiancée are getting disturbing "gifts" with messages based on biblical verses. When Giulia is drawn into the stalker's twisted game, salacious photos of her appear, threatening her job and her friendship with Frank. No one imagines—least of all naïve Giulia—the danger ahead, when following the clues turns into a fight for her life.

In Loweecey's spirited debut, virginal 29-year-old Giulia Falcone, formerly Sister Mary Regina Coelis, has a huge crush on her Pittsburgh employer, Francis "Frank" Xavier Driscoll, of Driscoll Investigations, who encourages her to train for her PI license. Frank enlists her help in finding out who's stalking sexy Blake Parker and Blake's fiancée, socialite Pamela van Alstyne. Five former girlfriends are among the prime suspects, and even Giulia becomes a target for some nasty surprises from an outraged ex out to stop the upcoming nuptials. Giulia faces many difficulties in the world outside the convent, especially after she explores the strange world of role-playing gamers engaged in some heavy-breathing hijinks. Although sometimes Giulia gets a bit too wide-eyed, her fresh take on crime fighting is a delight in this blend of light farce and mystery. (Feb.)
