Oh my this is the funniest book I have read in a long time! This is the first book by Peg Cochran that I have read, but it certainly will not be the last. Hilarious, engaging characters with the main one being Lucille, who is married with children with an Italian flavor mixed in. I love books that grab you from the start and keep you laughing throughout the story. The mystery part of the story is just right and keeps you guessing. Wonderful story.

Lucy & Ethel, Laverne & Shirley have nothing on Lucille & Flo's antics. Fun read, amazing plot & the book is funny!

Great Series! This is a great series; this is the third book in the A Lucille Mystery Series by Peg Cochran. It can be read as a standalone, but once you read this one you will want to read the others in the series. This book kept my attention from the first page until the last. Lucille is at her favorite pizzeria when the owner drops dead at her fee. She decides to go undercover by working at the pizzeria to find out who killed him. This book has it all humor, mystery, and pizza. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Hit and Nun by Peg Cochran is a great funny mystery and the third book in The Lucille Mystery series. My biggest worry about reading this book was that it was part three of a series and I really worried if it would be a stand alone or not. However it is easily a great stand alone! Lucille Mazzarella is in her fifties, overweight, and going through menopause. Not mention she still wears the leather jacket that her husband gave her in high school (even though it just barely zips up) and drives her 1987 Olds (that is on its last leg.) She comes from an Italian family and hosts big family dinner after church. She also works part-time at St. Rocco's Catholic Church where, by the way, she has found two bodies. Lucille sets out along with her friend Flo to solve the mystery of who killed the owner their favorite pizza restaurant, Sal and his wife Tiffany whose suicide is anything but. Lucille and Flo will do whatever it takes to solve these murders and trust me they do. I really love that Lucille marches to the beat of her own drum. It really makes her a very believable character and a joy to read. I enjoyed this book so much that I purchased the first two. I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Hit and Nun by Peg Cochran is a funny cozy mystery and the third book in The Lucille Mystery series. Lucille Mazzarella is in her fifties, married to Frankie, has a daughter, Bernadette, and a granddaughter, Lucia. She is also overweight, going through menopause, and dislikes change. Lucille still wears the leather jacket her husband gave her in high school (though it barely zips) and drives her 1987 Olds (despite the fact that it is on its last legs). Lucille comes from an Italian family. She hosts big family dinners every Sunday after Church with traditional Italian fare. Cousins Louis and Millie are no longer living with Lucille and Frank, but now they have Bernadette, her new husband Tony Jr., and little Lucy. Lucille also works part-time at St. Rocco's Catholic Church (where she has found two bodies). Lucille is at work in the Church checking on the flowers when Sal, owner of Sal's Pizzeria, stumbles in clutching his side. Sal is bleeding and wants to be baptized. Since there is no priest around to baptize him, Lucille does the deed (she remembers that a layperson can baptize someone if they are about to die). Sal then dies. Lucille and her friend, Flo set out to find out who killed the owner of their favorite pizza restaurant (Lucille does love her food). They are checking out Sal's wife, Tiffany when they find her dead in her garage. The killer made it look like a suicide, but Lucille knows it was not (her purse was in the kitchen). Lucille and Flo will do whatever it takes to solve the murders (you are never going to believe what they do this time). Lucille is a unique character. She marches to a different tune. Lucille's idea of dieting is hilarious. It is no wonder that she keeps gaining weight. Lucille also avoids technology. No GPS, no cell phone (Frank gave her one and she accidentally dropped it in the toilet), no MP3 player (still plays cassette tapes in her car). I do not know how she puts up with some of her relatives. Louis and Millie arrive for meals but offer no money or help. Bernadette does nothing around the house except make messes. Her mother is constantly getting into trouble. She insists on driving (she mixes up the brake and gas pedals). I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. There is a lot of humor in the book and it is an easy book to read. The mystery, though, is very easy to solve. Peg Cochran is a good writer. I love her Gourmet De-Lite Mystery series and am looking forward to Berried Secrets (A Cranberry Cove Mystery) which will be out in August. Happy Reading!
