Cute and full of suburban characters who are not always what they seem. There were enough twists and turns to the plot to keep the book enjoyable but it was still fluffy enough to be a one-day read.

I'll enjoy them all, but this is not a keeper series for me.

Art consultant Kate Austen's friend, Mona, kills herself. Or does she? The cast of characters from "Murder Among Neighbors" is back for another adventure. Whodunit is pretty easy to guess but there are enough red herrings along the way to make for an enjoyable read.

Second in the Kate Austen series. From Publishers Weekly: "The everyday life of a prosperous California suburb takes on livelier aspects when Kate Austen visits a neighbor, wealthy divorcee Mona Sterling, and finds the woman dead, apparently a suicide. The almost-divorced Kate, last seen in Murder Among Neighbors, and her friend Sharon Covington, convinced that Mona-flush with financial victory after a messy divorce-would not have taken her own life, start their own investigation, to the express disapproval of Kate's love interest, Lt. Michael Stone of the Walnut Hills' police. Not only does Kate have to cope with her fledgling art consultancy, her five-year-old daughter, Anna, and her feckless soon-to-be ex-husband, Andy, but she also has temporary custody of Mona's sullen and rebellious teenage daughter, Libby, who fiercely resents her father and his new trophy fiancee. The mysterious death of Libby's unsuitable boyfriend and an attack on Kate's car keep Kate on her detecting track. Jacobs's domestic tale takes a few well-aimed jabs at suburban life but carries little impact in its character or plot development." Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Kate finds her friend, Mona, dead on the couch. It looks like a suicide but Kate's friend, Sharon, believes it is murder. Kate and Sharon start looking for clues and their snooping puts Kate at great risk from the killer. Excellent twist and surprise at the end.

I have read all but 1 of Jonnie Jacobs' books. They are the kind of books you do not want to put down until you have finished reading. I love them and anxious for the new one coming out in March 2012.

"Newly divorced Kate Austen and Mona STerling have become fast friends. While Mona has hit the settlement jackpot, Kate has to support herself and her daughter with her new career as an art consultant. But the friendship comes to a dead end when Kate finds Mona's tone cold corpse next to a bottle of expensive scotch and an empty vial of sleeping pills. Only Kate doesn't believe it's suicide. For one thing Mona had just rescheduled a tennis date and for another she only drank gin. When a second body turns up, even handsome homicide detective Michael Stone agrees that it's beginning to look a lot like murder. And it's moving much too close to home..."
