First in a new series!
Someone is trying to turn Portland High into a school for scandal with a gossipy website called Dirty Laundry. The latest target of ruinous rumors is newly elected PTA president Sandra Wallage. After a heated meeting with outraged parents, Sandra runs into fellow school mom and private investigator Maya Kendrick, who's discovered the person behind the website. But when the women storm into the venomous gossip columnist’s office they find a lifeless body—along with a confession.
Although the police rule the death a suicide, Maya suspects an injured party hung the Dirty Laundry creator out to dry. Maya already has a PI partner—but she's pregnant, and sonograms and stakeouts tend to conflict. So when Sandra volunteers for a crash course in sleuthing, Maya accepts the help. But as these unlikely partners study the clues, a killer plans to teach them a lesson . .
This is the first book in the Maya and Sandra mystery series by Lee Hollis.
I have been waiting for a year to read this and I was not disappointed.
Okay, I have to admit that I am totally obsessed with this. This was one great read! There is so much juice in this that it literally overflowed with goodness.
Maya is the PI who is down to her last dime, used to work for the police force and has a moral compass that points true north. Sandra is the wife of a senator with two sons that I just fell in love with practically after she was introduced. What an amazing combo these two make.
The mystery here is very involved and the ultimate killer is someone you never see coming. What a great reveal! I can’t wait to see what is next in this series. I feel like this could be its own tv show sort of like Charlie’s Angels!
Highly recommended! Check this series starter for sure!
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
