Publisher's Summary

Desperate Housewives meets Murder, She Wrote in Lee Hollis' new mystery series, where a housewife and a female private eye solve murders together in their small Maine town!

Someone is trying to turn Portland High into a school for scandal with a gossipy website called Dirty Laundry. The latest target of ruinous rumors is newly elected PTA President Sandra Wallage. After a heated meeting with outraged parents, Sandra runs into fellow school mom and Private Investigator Maya Kendrick, who's discovered the person behind the website. But when the women storm into the venomous gossip columnist's office they find a lifeless body - along with a confession.

Although the police rule the death a suicide, Maya suspects an injured party hung the Dirty Laundry creator out to dry. Maya already has a PI partner - but she's pregnant, and sonograms and stakeouts tend to conflict. So when Sandra volunteers for a crash course in sleuthing, Maya accepts the help. But as these unlikely partners study the clues, a killer plans to teach them a lesson....

I added an extra star to be fair

I threw on an extra star because cozy mysteries aren't my usual genre and I thought that would be fair. I know we've been trapped inside without human interaction during the pandemic, but that dialogue?? Woof. The plot was ok, the characters were boring, and as much as it pains me to say it, the setting (southern Maine) was characterless and flat. You could replace SoPo with some random town in any country and nothing would need changing. Russia might make more sense with how many affairs apparently everyone in this AU SoPo are indulging in. That being said, the author shows promise. Some research into how human beings talk and a good editor (some of the inaccuracies might have been the narrator misspeaking, but that can't account for all of them) and the next book could be more worth the time. The phrase "write what you know" does come to mind thinking of the hilariously bizarre portrayal of a waterfront warehouse brothel. The main characters are believable if not quite fully fleshed out. In my heart, this is a solid two stars.

Great listen

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn’t too heavy but still kept me guessing. The narrator was fabulous.
