It’s private investigator Giulia Falcone’s second Christmas since leaving the convent. She’s happy to be spending it with Frank Driscoll, even if his switching from boss to boyfriend and back again is giving her whiplash. But Giulia’s holiday is darkened with disturbing news from her friends Anya and Laurel—their adopted baby girl has been kidnapped. When she learns that two kidnappings in nearby communities, both involving same-sex couples, ended with devastating fatalities, Giulia is more determined than ever to return the infant girl to her mothers. With Frank reluctantly backing her and the understaffed police offering little assistance, Giulia goes undercover to snare the kidnappers before they can do further harm.
"Absorbing. Loweecey nicely balances humor built around Giulia's re-entry into the world and her attraction to her boss with her suspenseful efforts to save Laurel and Anya's baby."—Publishers Weekly
“A former nun herself, Loweecey infuses her heroine with all the knowledge and courage it takes to switch from the convent to crime fighting, pairing a solid mystery with a budding romance.”—Kirkus Reviews
"The blossoming romance between Frank and the innocent Giulia—as well as the ongoing process of Giulia finding her way in the world after living years in the convent (she uses Cosmopolitan to learn about men)—provides character-based appeal for this fast-paced, satisfying mystery."—Booklist Online
