I’m a bit sad, because I thought I would like the book, but I don’t. I can’t even pinpoint why, was it the writing (not bad, actually), the characters, the story line, a combination of all three mentioned? I don’t know. I only know that I couldn’t get myself to even read the book from cover to cover.
She’s a parent. She’s (almost) a P.I. No one gets on your case like mom.Suburban widow and P.I. in training Nicki Valentine can barely keep track of her two kids, never mind anyone else. But when her best friend’s adoption plan is jeopardized by the young birth mother’s disappearance, Nicki is persuaded to help. Nearly everyone else believes the teenager ran away, but Nicki trusts her BFF’s judgment, and the feeling is mutual.The case leads where few moms go (teen parties, gang shootings) and places they can’t avoid (preschool parties, OB-GYNs’ offices).

Thankfully, Nicki is armed with her pesky conscience, occasional babysitters, a fully stocked minivan, and nature’s best defense system: women’s intuition.My review
