"A laugh-out-loud, wacky and hysterical romp." - Sue Ann Jaffarian, author of the Odelia Grey mysteries

Life is pretty typical for stay-at-home mom Margie Peterson. She's got a peanut-butter-covered wardrobe, an attorney husband who's always at the office, and a mother-in-law who keeps slipping her books like "Sex Secrets of Happy Wives." Then she lands a part-time job at a seedy P.I. firm - and her humdrum suburban life is turned upside-down.

By the end of her first day, Margie's totaled her minivan, submitted a picture of a naked man in Saran Wrap to the school newsletter, and accidentally participated in a drag queen contest. When she finds a dead transvestite in the "Princesses'" room of a gay bar, she decides it may be time to hang up her hat and start planning Tupperware parties. Then she picks up the drag queen's phone... and discovers the last call the dead man made was to Margie's own house.

"If you love a mystery with the most unlikeliest P.I. EVER... with enough snort-worthy moments to have the family looking up and wanting to know what's tickled your fancy... then, yeah, pay Margie Peterson a visit. You will not be disappointed." - Bookaroo-Ju

Praise for Howling at the Moon:

"Humorous and event-filled... a romantic triangle also adds spice and interest. Future adventures promise to be quite entertaining!" - Romantic Times

"Sophie was a delight, and Howling at the Moon was like a big bag of potato chips...I kept reaching for the next page, and the next, and the next..."
- MaryJanice Davidson, New York Times best-selling author of the Undead series

Praise for the Gray Whale Inn mysteries:

"Karen MacInerney writes with verve and vitality, and her Natalie Barnes is a Maine original. I'm ready to book a room at the Gray Whale Inn!" - Susan Wittig Albert, New York Times best-selling author of the China Bayles Herbal Mysteries

"Deliciously clever plot. Juicy characters. Karen MacInerney has cooked up a winning recipe for murder. Don't miss this mystery!" - Maggie Sefton, New York Times best-selling author of Knit One, Kill Two

Editorial Reviews

Sue Ann Jaffarian
"The minivan and her daughter's fry phone were the first casualties when Margie Peterson took on a part-time job for Peachtree Investigations. Karen MacInerney has delivered a laugh-out-loud, wacky and hysterical romp featuring an ordinary car-pool mom who finds herself walking on the wild side, coming face-to-face with plastic-wrapped cheaters, a murdered transvestite, and her own husband’s secrets."
– Sue Ann Jaffarian, author of the Odelia Grey mysteries
