BUNDLE OF TROUBLE: A Maternal Instincts Mystery

First-time mom, Kate Connelly, may have found the perfect work-from-home Mommy job: Private Investigator? After all, the hours are flexible, she can take the baby along on stake-outs, and if you're going to be up all night anyway, why not solve some crimes?

Kate had imagined she's spend her maternity leave crooning lullabies and snuggling her new baby daughter, but then she receives a disturbing phone call from the morgue. It seems a body has been pulled out of San Francisco Bay, and the police believe it just might be her brother-in-law.

In addition to trying to solve the mystery of how one six-pound baby can generate ten times her weight in laundry, Kate finds herself diaper deep in a murder investigation and the bodies keep dropping! When Kate's husband becomes a suspect in the crimes and is hauled off to jail, Kate must crack the case faster than you can say "diaper rash" to keep her little family together.

This is fun and a terrific escape. I am like the Butterfly McQueen character, Prissy, in Gone With The Wind, "I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' babies!" , and yet I still enjoyed this novel. The plot is quite clever and the addition of the baby makes for an interesting dynamic. What do you think?
