Bundle of Trouble (A Humorous Cozy Mystery) (A Maternal Instincts Mystery Book 1) (English Edition) Reviews
and something to learn about maternity leave and about private detectives.I've been wondering all the time how these topics go together, but it sound real (even if there is a lot of luck, I'd say.
Way too much baby! I paid for the audible version so I listened to the very end. Who would take a baby, especially an infant, with them to investigations? That baby is amazing, it seems to be able to do lots of things most babies can't. I kept expecting it to have a conversation with the mother and give her hints on how to solve the murders. Motherhood and loving your baby is fine but this one got me to the level of being nauseous! I got tired of all the silly names she called the kid. The cover of the book is great, nice art work. Covers are usually what draws me to a book but this one drew me and didn't give anythingI think the author is probably a good writer, but I won't waste time or money on any more of these motherhood/amateur PI books. I didn't feel that the way she was one day not a PI and then next day a PI. Doesn't it take a bit more to being one, oh, well don't confuse us with facts, afterall it is fiction.
This book was just o.k. I don't think I'll read anything else in the series. BTW as an animal lover, I was disappointed by the picture of the cat on the cover. No cat ever appears in the book.
This would have been better if the baby had been left out of the story. I kept expecting her to forget, and leave the baby somewhere.
Kate is in labor with her first child when the phone rings with bad news about her husband Jim's brother. A body has been found in the bay and Jim's brother George's belongings have been found on the pier near the location where the murdered body was found. Kate delivers baby Laurie and finds out George was not the victim. If George isn't the victim then where is he? Since Kate is on maternity leave she decides to look for him herself. As Kate investigates she discovers she knows some of the people involved personally. She meets a private investigator who thinks she just might be cut out to be a private investigator herself. That would suit her just fine! Since baby Laurie arrived she doesn't want to go back to her old job anyway! This book hilariously takes birth and motherhood to a new level! It's twists and turns will leave you laughing and crying and rooting for Kate to solve the murders, yes the murders. A great author and book. I highly recommend both!
I must just have seen the Cozy Mystery label and not noticed the Maternal Instincts designation because this was definitely a book for Moms, new moms, at that. There was just too much baby in it for me, to the point that it was distracting and detracted from the story. The plot was also pretty unbelievable with a new mom who suddenly decides to become a P.I. She has a mentor, but not much else. I finished the book, but didn't really enjoy it. The only reason for 3 stars instead of 1 is because I probably would have enjoyed it if I were a new mom.
