There isn't really much to add to the already known book description. It's been a while since I read the first book "The Nanny Murders" so I was glad to read some repetitions of Zoe's and Nick's past and why they fight with issues.
All in all the story isn't overly exciting or elaborate but very cozy as the character of Zoe is very likeable even with some flaws that leave the mystery reader almost speechless or uncomprehending. Sometimes it seems her little adopted girl has a more grown-up point of view then her adoptive mother.

And her stairmaster's still sulking with dust and disuse ! :-)

A good, easy mystery read. The plot is pretty far-fetched, but the characters are likeable. Fans of Mary Higgins Clark would like this book as well as Jones's first book, The Nanny Murders.

This was a suspenseful book, especially after Zoe and her friend tip their boat and find themselves tangled and swimming amidst 19 dead women.

I found this book easier to read than the first one and also better written. It is suspensful and moves faster than its predecessor, The Nanny Murders. I'm looking forward to reading the next in this series.
