THE TROUBLE WITH TULIP
A suspicious death in the neighborhood messes up the best-laid plans. Soon Jo and Danny wade hip deep into strange goings-on, and the police are none too happy with their interference. Before this unlikely duo finds out whodunit, Jo's livelihood is in jeopardy, Danny's dreams look hopeless and they both must examine their hearts.
Cleverly plotted, Clark's debut Smart Chick mystery is way more fun than a new household gadget. Engaging characters touch the heart with issues that matter. Bring on the next one! (Jul., 293 pp., $11.99)
