Cutesy, Cozy Mystery Alert!
Okay all of you cozy mystery lovers out there....new series alert! Bundle of Trouble is the first book of the new Maternal Instincts Mysteries by author Diana Orgain and mothers everywhere can rejoice.
New mother Kate Connolly has just given birth to her first child when she inadvertently finds herself embroiled in the mystery of her brother-in-law's disappearance. When the private investigator working the case winds up in the hospital, Kate finds herself solving not only the mystery of her brother-in-law, but possibly the mystery of how to avoid returning to her 9-5 office job at the end of her maternity leave.
Diana Orgain does a crack job of creating a plausible whodunit with a delightful protagonist. No deep, dark undercurrents in this new series and we're fairly certain that's just the way Ms. Orgain intended it. Upbeat and light-hearted (even, some might say, a bit saccharine at times), Kate Connolly's new mommy status brings back fond memories of those first hectic weeks with an infant.
Mother's everywhere who like a cozy mystery now and again will most certainly enjoy this fun, quick read. Ms. Orgain delivers! (Bad, bad pun. Get over it.)
We especially like getting in on the beginning of a new series!
