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.

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.

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.

Hilarious New Mommy Murdee Solver!

So many laugh out loud moments!
I got all those crazy new mom jokes & couldn't wait for the main character to catch the murderer! Who knew she would go all ninja to protect her baby!?! Great Audible story. I'm off to re-listen!

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.

the fun of Plum

the characters in this book are very much like ones found in an Evanovich book. Fun, full characters. I enjoyed their happiness; I felt their sorrow. Great book! Great characters! I can't wait to listen to another one.

Narrator hurried

I'd have gotten more enjoyment from this audible book if the narrator had not tried to read it so fast. A bit more Interpretation, a bit less of a rush.

Cute little cozy

The book was fun if a bit forgettable. The narration brought it down a bit, was acceptable but didn’t enhance the story.
