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!

Good storyline and plot

I liked the book. I wish the narrator had been different. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

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.

Bundle of trouble

The story was hard to follow because it was mysteriously writte and as I was reading this book it was good but difficult some e hat to follow

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.

Story felt real

This story is wonderfully written and a great story line with lots of personal feelings coming through. I recently became a great grandmother and all of the buildup of the birth of Laura took me back to when I was there for the births and after for all of my grandchildren. As Grandma I was rewarded to be there to help with the babies and help the mom's get through those rough days and night. Diana Orgain did a great job describing all of those moments and challenges. The mystery story was good also.
I have to admit that I was tempted to give less stars for the performance and didn't realize until after I was done with the book that it was read (narrated) by the author. Narrators usually have a variety of voice for the various characters and this book didn't. We tend to get spoiled by narrators like Barbara Rosenblat and others. BUT the reading was done wonderfully. The emotions, tensions, etc. all came through excellently.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have already recommended it to friends. Good Job Diana.
