Image of Bundle of Trouble (A Maternal Instincts Mystery)

New mother Kat Connolly's first baby has left her more attached and more exhausted than she ever imagined. Life
is a series of calls to her mother, dirty diapers, pumping backup milk for her return to corporate life, never-ending to-do lists -- and dead bodies. That's what happens when you live in a mystery. Although working as a P.I. from home isn't likely to be the first career choice
of most new mothers, it's an interesting and rather touching change. The action
is lively, and light humor is sprinkled throughout in this first in a new series.

Kat has the concerns and problems you would expect of a new mother -- as well as those annoying murders. The police contact Kat and her husband when her brother-in-law's suitcases are found at the pier. Then a dead body turns up. Is it his? Before long more dead bodies are piling up, her husband is arrested as a suspect and he loses his job. That's when she decides she has to act as their P.I. and find who's behind all this. (BERKLEY PRIME CRIME, Aug., 304 pp., $6.99)
