Pediatrician Mabel Aphrodite Brown adores kids. So when a childhood friend asks Ditie to babysit her kids for a few days, she jumps at the chance. She never imagined she’d be solving a murder too . . .
Despite growing up together, Ditie hasn’t seen Ellie Winston in two years, and she didn’t even know Ellie was living in Atlanta. But when Ellie asks her to take care of Lucie and Jason for the weekend, she thinks nothing of it. They’ll bake cookies together, play with her dog—it’ll be fun! Until the police call with terrible news . . .
Ellie may not have been the best friend, but who would want her dead? Could it have something to do with the vague get-rich-quick scheme she mentioned to Ditie? Or the men in a black truck following her and breaking into her home? Not sure who to trust other than her best friend, Lurleen, Ditie’s buried maternal instincts kick in to protect the kids and find their mother’s killer—before they’re orphaned again . . .

Too many crooks spoil the plot
Good story that really kept me guessing who the bad guys were!
Wish I could give it 5 stars.
For the life of me, I don’t understand why Lurleen’s character had to speak French throughout the book. She’s from the South, for starters, and it served absolutely no purpose except to irritate me! I feel like it ruined a perfectly good book.
Can’t keep facts straight.
I enjoyed the book. The story was interesting but for some reason the author had trouble keeping her facts straight. Why was Mason’s brother called Johnny by Mason then Michael by his mother? Was the refugee family with the 15 year old girl from Ethiopia as first mentioned or Nigerian as stated later?
The book would have been so much better if I didn’t have to go back to check what was said earlier because I was confused. The author needs better proof readers.
