When the head of her two-year-old daughter's school is killed in a hit-and-run "accident," Juliet Applebaum, a public defender turned stay-at-home mom, finds herself investigating the murder of the preschool principal

Blackwell North Amer
Juliet's daughter Ruby is a whiner, a tantrum-thrower, and a grabber - just your ordinary two year old. But ordinary isn't the word to describe the movie-star progeny who attend Hollywood's premier preschool, Heart's Song. Juliet isn't too surprised when Ruby doesn't get in, but she's shocked and suspicious when the school's principal is killed in a hit-and-run accident. Against the advice of her husband and with her rambunctious toddler in tow, Juliet heads to the local playground to dig up some dirt on a disgruntled studio executive whose daughter wasn't offered a place in the school. But she has some surprising new suspects to consider when her investigation takes her into a seedy on-line newsgroup - and the most dangerous parts of the human heart...

This is the first in the Mommy-Track mystery series. These are very fast-paced, fun reads! The protagonist, Juliet Applebaum, a bored, SAHM and former federal public defender is very appealing and refreshing. In this first book in the series she becomes involved in investigating the death of the director of a prestigious pre-school when she suspects that it is more than the simple hit-and-run accident that the police have deemed it.

Heavily pregnant and mother of a 3-yr-old, it seems that Juliet may have just bitten off more than she can chew.

These books are like candy to me! I gobble each one rapidly and greedily. I'm trying to pace myself through this series; otherwise I somehow feel a slight pang of guilt for overindulgence!
