This story of domestic violence and its consequences in Jenny Cain's Port Frederick hometown is a little on the gritty side for me, but it is a whale of a good story.

Jenny Cain, altruistic, bright and rich, is about to marry her policeman-lover Geof Bushfield, when events in this sprightly and intriguing mystery make them pause before taking their final vows. An inexplicable rash of domestic violence has hit the small town of Port Frederick, Mass.three husbands in two weeks have been shot and killed by their battered wivesand Geof, depressed, is considering leaving the force, and is even having grave doubts about gettng married. Jenny (seen in Pickard's No Body et al) is more resolute and puts together a task force of social workers, psychologists, and doctors to pry into the cause of the alarming increase in family violence. She also decides to do some sleuthing on her own and turns up puzzling similarities in all the killings. All three women, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, vehemently deny killing their spouses. And in each case, the murder weapon is nowhere to be found. Jenny even begins to consider a conspiracy afoot against violent husbands. An energetic array of Jenny's friends and co-workers keep this novel a fine mix of romance, violence, and sleuthing moving at a fast clip.

From back of book:

Jenny Cain and police detective Geof Bushfield already had pre-nuptial jitters. Then a sudden wave of domestic violence rocked placid Port Frederick--in just two weeks, the husbands of three battered wives were shot dead.

Homicide was all too familiar to Geof, but this was enough to make him want to quit the force. Except that none of the wives confessed--and none of the guns were found. As Geof searched for clues, Jenny uncovered a dangerous secret--a murderous obsession that threatened to tear Port Frederick apart!

I like the character Jenny Cain and the town she lives in. She has quite a varied group of friends due to the nature of her job which makes for some interesting events. This one takes place right before her wedding to long-time boyfriend, policeman (of course) Geoff Bushfield. Deals with domestic disturbance.
