As a young single parent, Mackenzie Elizabeth Taylor has struggled to provide for her teenage daughter. She finally catches a break when she inherits half of an apartment building in Boston from her uncle Al, along with his P.I. business. So what if she doesn't know the first thing about investigation or if their hot-but-crabby downstairs tenant is a police detective who's looking for any excuse to handcuff her? Her daughter, Mac the computer whiz, has her back. And these two girls don't know the meaning of the word quit - not even when their first case takes an unexpected turn.
The man Mackenzie's been hired to follow in a custody case seems to have upset more than just her client when she spies another person tailing him - a mysterious man Mackenzie would bet is up to no good. But when her mark suddenly winds up dead, and her first and only client is accused of his murder, Mackenzie vows to find the truth. Only one problem: she doesn't know where to start...or when to draw the line. Who is the mysterious man she spotted tailing the victim? Is he the killer? Is she in over her head, or will she uncover the secrets someone killed to keep hidden? Mackenzie and Mackenzie are on the case, and the world of private investigation will never be the same.

I live to ride my bike.
Think of Gilmore Girls becoming private detectives.
The mother and daughter are named Mackenzie. The mother is called Mackenzie and the daughter Mack. Mack is an extremely talented 16 year-old computer wiz. Mackenzie is a quirky, caffeinated, and awesome. Her morning drink is coffee with a side of coffee topped with coffee beans.
The story centers around financial difficulties of the Mackenzies. Mom-Mackenzie has difficulty finding and keeping a job when she discovers that she wants to try her skills are being a private detective. Being Mackenzie nothing is simple. Following the simple rules of a book written by her uncle, Mackenzie becomes a PI.
Add to the story that Mackenzie and her mother inherit an apartment from her uncle. Her mom leaves the captain (Mackenzie calls her dad by his service rank) moves into the upstairs apartment. There is a hot police office (who Mackenzie has promised not sleep with him) and a Jewish woman. There are movies nights with junk food, love interests and other domestic entanglements.
A great fun novel which needs a follow up. How many PI’s only have one case? So there has to be a follow up.
