Publisher's Summary

First-time mom Kate Connelly is bringing up baby - and bringing down a killer.

Kate Connelly may have found the perfect work-from-home Mommy job: private investigator. After all, the hours are flexible, she can bring the baby along on stake-outs, and if you’re going to be up all night anyway, you might as well solve some crimes. But when a body is pulled from San Francisco Bay that may be her brother-in-law, Kate must crack the case faster than you can say “diaper rash” in order to keep her family together.

Couldn't get into it.

Kind of boring and drawn out. The narrator was somewhat flat. The final straw was that the author kept using God's name in vain. Is that even necessary to writer a good story.??

Didn't finish reading it.

Did not like the narrator, although it was the author. She definitely isn't an actor.

Ok

The main character was relatable and I liked her. The story wasn't bad but I didn't like the profanity and taking the Lords name in vain. I knew who the murderer was from the 1st meeting but that wasn't a deal breaker. I won't be listening to any more from this author. Because of the language.

Not my cup of tea....

Very amateurish and quite frankly predictable all the way to the end. I wish I had the time back listening to this book. 🥴

Liked Book 2, But Not This One

The second in the series is good, but for the life of me, I couldn't take the husband's lackadaisical attitude when his wife went into labor. It wasn't funny. It starts off with him cussing because the phone rings during the Forty Niners Game, and goes downhill from there. Nope, this one is going back.

A good read

I like the book but the reader needs to learn to change her voice better so you can tell who is talking. Not Has bad as some readers. The writer did a good job with story line but made the main character sound like a real flake at times. Overall a good read.

Monotone narration

Hmm ... I have mixed feelings about this book, and I am not going to lie, I almost gave up at a few points as it took me some time to get into this story.

My biggest complaint with this audiobook was the narration. While it was manageable, I felt that Diana Orgain's voice was quite monotone and there was little to no differentiation between characters; I had to rewind several times as I lost focus due to boredom.

As for the main character, I found Kate to be slightly irritating; her constant whining about going back to the office got to be grating. However, as the story progressed, I got to like her more. My favourite character, though, was the PI Galigani; I hope that he and Kate pair off into Private Investigation together in future books.

Finally, in terms of the plot, I felt that the actual mystery was reasonably good once I got into it. To be honest, I had no idea who the killer was and his/her reasons until the big reveal.

Overall, despite its shortcomings, Bundle of Trouble was a decent enough book; it kept me interested enough to discover the ending. I will likely give book two a read.

Fun story, but...

This is a fun cozy and the characters are very likable. The story line about getting used to an new baby while juggling everything else was good. . I would have given it higher marks except that the endless repetition of the entire silly To Do list got old fast. We get that things were constantly changing. The lead character’s internal monologue was very funny. But will not be reading more by this author if a “to do” list continues to play such a major role

Oh dear, not funny, not even that amusing.

Not what I expected. Didn’t raise a smile let alone a chuckle. I felt that more characters were invented just to give more suspects rather than to enrich the story. The plot was thin to totally unbelievable and I just didn’t care who had done the murders by the end. I kept hoping things would perk up, alas , no such luck.
