June 16th's Book Beginning and Friday 56

It's another Friday, which means it is time again for Book Beginning and Friday 56.

This week, I'm featuring Force of Habit by Alice Loweecey.

This is the book that introduced us to Alice's character.  I was going to tell you about her, but the opening does a good job of that.

Giulia Falcone - formerly Sister Mary Regina Coelis - popped a tangerine Life Saver in her mouth to stifle a curse.
No wonder the client was desperate.  She would be too if a stalker had sent her notes that escalated from adoring to obsessive.  Given the choice, she'd rather be chased by a rabid Doberman.

Yes, we have a former nun turned PI, and she's a wonderful character.

Jumping to page 56, we find:

Blake waved a hand in Giulia's direction.  "Fine.  Whatever it takes to get us out of this mess."

That's all for this week.  Hope you have a fabulous weekend.


  1. This book is new to me and sounds like it would be something I would enjoy. I have a historical mystery with ghosts from my TBR mountain this week - Delia's Shadow by Jaime Lynn Moyer. Happy reading!

  2. I love the play on nuns. Cute. Happy weekend!

  3. Haha...looks entertaining :) Love the character! Have a great weekend :)
    Here's my Friday Post Inspiration Pie

  4. I love that idea--a nun turned detective. Thanks for bringing this one to my attention. I hope you have a great weekend. Thank you for sharing!

  5. There seem to be several nuns turned investigator series floating around right now. I like the sound of this one! I love a stalker mystery and Giulia sounds interesting.

  6. A former nun, you say? That could be interesting. :)
