Publisher's Summary

My name is Sister Trixie Lavender, and I'm an occasionally possessed excommunicated nun. Okay, that's a lot to swallow at once. But it's true - I was booted from the convent after doing something unspeakable. Something I had no control over. Something that lives inside me to this day, exploding out like that chest-burster in Alien when I least suspect it.  

But I have help. My amazing friend Coop - the demon who saved me from an ugly end - remains by my side, loyal and true. She was Hell's best tattoo artist back in the day, and together with my designs, we're opening Inkerbelle's Tattoos and Piercings, right in the heart of Portland's most darling district, Cobbler Cove.  

Of course, our bid to fit in would be a little less rocky if I could help Coop assimilate with humans, keep a lid on our sassy talking owl, Livingston...oh, and if someone hadn't killed our landlord on day one - in our shop.  

This mystery-loving, bumbling ex-nun and her trusty demon sidekick are on the case! If I don't bumble my way right into my own demise first....

Loved it!!!

If you love Dakota Cassidy's 'Witchless in Seattle' and/or 'Lemon Layne' series (witch I do [see what I did there? 'Cause I know it's spelled 'which' but you know... 'Witchless'... witch... sigh.. never mind]), then you will also love her new 'Nun of Your Business' series. I won't summarize the plot (because there's a summary right up there, lazy bones!), but I will say that it was fun and funny, the characters were engaging, and Hollie Jackson performs it beautifully, giving each character a distinct voice and personality. She really has a knack for Dakota Cassidy's snappy, sassy, comic timing. My only complaint is that books 2 and 3 aren't yet on Audible! I know, I know. Patience. Sigh. (Patience is NOT a virtue - it's a torture.)

Hollie Jackson rules

Loved that Hollie Johnson reads the novel. This novel follows where Good Witch Hunting left off. it follows the ex- nun and her demon to a new town. I was so sad that they left town, but they find a place of their own in Then there were Nun. References to Witchless tie the story into the Witchless in Seattle universe but the characters have an opportunity to come into their own.
I love that the Coop (the demon) seems to struggle with the social issues. Her inability to read ques, sarcasm or facial expressions makes her character fascinating.

Who cloned the Nun?

First, I’ll say that I read the whole Witchless in Seattle series, and really enjoyed it; Stevie is the protagonist, and meets Trixie and Coop in Good Witch Hunting (book 7). So, Then There Were Nun is a spinoff. Well, as spinoffs go, it’s pretty lame. The best thing i can say is that Hollie Jackson does a fine job with narration, as always. But the author really just called it in on this one. In Good Witch, Trixie and Coop find their dead landlord in the back of their shop, are questioned by police, and decide to investigate themselves. In this book, they find a dead landlord in the back of their shop, are questioned by police, and decide to investigate themselves. In Good Witch, Stevie does the main investigating, and involves Trixie and Coop. In this book, Trixie does the investigation and talks constantly about Stevie. She says she learned so much from Stevie, thinks about how Stevie would approach it, talks about how Stevie was her mentor, etc. Honestly, she knew Stevie for maybe a couple weeks before she and Coop moved to Portland, so it’s very odd that she talks like she knew her for years. And the author barely tries to create a new character. Trixie sounds just like Stevie, has her same mannerisms and wisecracks, and even does the same action of deciding to investigate a murder even though she’s not a cop. At least Stevie had a dead spy in her head as a reason she investigates. In short, this book is just a bad knock off of the Good Witch book, which i did enjoy. I’m not going further in the Nun series. I might try one of Cassidy’s other series, and wait for another Stevie book.

A demon and the ex-nun!

Great and fun characters in this cozy murder mystery novel. love the idea of the main characters seeking out belonging community and it's located in my wonderful city Portland, Oregon. Thank you both for an enjoyable listen and story. Holly you are becoming one of my favorites.

Big cozy - Barely paranormal

This was my first and last book by this author. It wasn’t terrible, just very bland. It’s a cozy where the mystery isn’t very clever. The supernatural element merely provides the character quirks for the MC (a former nun who occasionally gets possessed and loses her temper), her BFF (a demon babe trying to be human), and a talking owl. Other than that, there’s no other supernatural elements that tie in to the town, other people, or the mystery. This was hours of syrupy sweet schticks about her bad cooking and exclamations like “oh, for the love of popsicles!”

I had more fun with cozies like Eat, Pray, Die. If you can stand a tad more off-humor and crime, the Miss Fortune and Stephanie Plum series are great for the first couple of books.

Cute

I enjoyed the characters, especially Coop. However, they did seem a little one dimensional. I did get tired of Trixie's questioning of whether or not there was a God. For a person who knew with certainty that Hell was the real deal and had been raised in the faith it's hard to believe that she questioned the existence of God. It didn't add to the story line, it detracted from Trixe's likability and seemed as if the author was trying to hard to appeal to a wider audience. The story would have been better off with no references to a higher power.

Solid Start to a Series

So I am trekking through Dakota Cassidy's series in reverse order it seems. I first listened to all of Marshmallow Hollow (unrelated to this story universe) and am now picking this series up which I then learned is a spin off from her prior series Witchless in Seattle. I enjoyed this story and it did a good job to help folks who did not read Witchless or orient to the current situation of our main crew of characters. It is not long before Sister Trixie Lavender, a possessed excommunicated nun, and her Demon friend Coop run into a corpse at their new rental property they intend to open a tattoo shop in. This story does a good job of bringing the audience into this new home with local places, people, and politics. There is a very brief scene that delves into Trixie's possession but really occurring mostly out of scene and described later. I am assuming we will get to delve more into this a little later in the series. We get to meet other local folks who seem to be destined to become comrades in the ongoing mystery solving this crew seems determined to solve. I will be curious in future volumes how they will manage to get themselves involved in mysteries but the series definitely shows promise. Supernatural cozy mystery with eccentric characters, sprinkles of love interest, and some tension that wraps up nicely at the end. For those looking for another cozy series and like the idea of possessed ex nuns, their demon friends, and their budding tattoo shop this might be for you.

Needs a prequel

So the book was good but kept referencing past events. It was like this was the 2nd book in the series and not the first. I would like to have read/listen to the story of Trixie’s time at the convent; her first possession ; how she met Coop and Stevie and the first murder Coop was almost charged with. Other than that I liked it and will read book 2.
