After hearing so much about this series, I finally got started on it. I enjoyed this first book so much, that I'm scrambling around to get all the other books in the series. I can't wait to read more!

You will really like this book. I have become addicted to this series, it's funny, smart and a quick read. A different type of heroine, one you would really like to know in real life.

I finally read the first book of the series! We are introduced here to suburban moms Jane Jeffry and her neighbor Shelley Nowack. The fun begins when the cleaning lady is murdered in Shelley's house. Detective Mel Van Dyne investigates all their neighbors, and Jane and Shelley decide to poke their noses in when it becomes clear that one of their friends has to be the murderer of the blackmailing maid. A fun read with a clever mystery, it's clear why this one won the Agatha award.

It's So hard to Kill Good Help These Days. . . With three kids to raise on her own, Jane Jeffry sometimes needs a hand with the housework. But many of her complaining neighbors believe that the "Happy Helper" cleaning lady they all share wouldn't know a dust-ball if she was choking on it. That hardly seems reason enough, however, to do the disreputable domestic in.

So when the charwoman in question is discovered strangled to death with a vacuum cleaner cord, Jane decides to dig up the real dirt--if the tenacious single mom can find any time to spare between her PTA meetings and car-pooling duties. But despite her busy schedule, Jane is determined to tidy up the whole murderous mess--even if it means provoking a killer who may live as close as next door.

Found this to be very coarse, will try one more and if not better will give up. Not a cozy as far as I'm concerned, too much foul language.
