Several years ago, I read a mystery by an American writer about a soccer mom -turned-detective.  I don't remember many details.  It took place in contemporary suburbia.  Does anyone have any idea who wrote this or what it could be called?  I enjoyed the book immensely but could never find it again in the library.  It lent itself to be a series, so I believe there may be others out there.

Jennifer Apodaca has a series about Samantha Shaw, owner of Heart Mates dating service and single mother of two, in Lake Elsinore, California. The third entry in this series, entitled Ninja Soccer Moms, was published in 2004. Could this be the book?

Julie Kenner has a series, the first of which is Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom. It takes place in San Diablo, California.
