Mt. Abrams was the kind of small, quiet town where, as any of its residents would tell you, nothing ever happened. That was why Ellie Rocca loved living there, even if her ex-husband did not.
But even small towns had secrets, as Ellie discovered when Lacey Mitchell suddenly disappeared. Ellie caught Lacey’s husband in a lie, and one small discovery led to another until it became apparent that nothing about the Mitchell’s was quite what it seemed.
Mother’s Day was just around the corner. With a sexy detective on the case, and Ellie and her friends getting closer to the truth, can Lacey Mitchell be found in time to enjoy the day with her sons? Or was something more deadly going on?

This book showed up for free, so I took advantage and downloaded it, honestly not expecting much. Let’s face it, a lot of the free books are free for a reason.
That being said, I loved this book. There’s a great deal of diversity in the cast. The characters are well written. The author manages to convey the scenes without being overly descriptive and tiresome. The story has a great twist. I didn’t see the whodunnit coming.
One of the things I like best about the book is the strong characters. I get very very very tired of the female lead being whiny, stupid, pretty, and utterly useless.
I have already bought the next two books, and I have a feeling that I will end up, quite happily, with the entire set.
I hope everyone else enjoys it as much as I did.
A Mothers Day Murder
Boring. Too much filler and too many names that had no valve to the story.
Keeps your attention and easy to read.
