Secret Sistersby Tristi Pinkston
Ida Mae Babbitt, president of the Omni 2nd Ward Relief Society, didn't mean to become a spy. But when visiting teaching stats are low and she learns that one family under her care is in financial trouble, she'll do whatever it takes to make sure they have what they need. If that includes planting surveillance cameras in their home and watching them from a parked car in the woods, well, isn't that what any caring Relief Society president would do?
With the help of her counselors Arlette and Tansy, Ida Mae soon learns that there's more to the situation than meets the eye. It's all in a day's work for the Relief Society.
This is an update of the original version published in 2010 with a purple cover.

If I had to sum up this book in one word, it would have to be, FUN! I finished Secret Sisters in a few short days and loved every minute with the the quirky, relatable, and often humorous characters. The country setting was perfect, the pacing spot on and everything seemed to flow and jive really effortlessly. By the time I finished, I felt like an honorary member of the gang, or maybe even an extended family member. I don't normally read alot of cozy mysteries, but this one has me yearning for more. It was well paced, easy to read, and just a very relaxing experience. I definitely plan to read more of Tristi's books in the future and can't wait for the next installment!
You've got to love this cleverly written book! Tristi does an amazing job of keeping your attention. Once you begin reading, you won't want to put the book down! I would highly recommend the book -- and I'm planning to purchase it for Christmas Gifts.
Secret Sisters by Tristi Pinkston This new foray into humorous mystery for Tristi is a big hit. The mixture of humor with mystery is a good mix, as it lets us see the human side of a Relief Society group of sisters. Ida Mae Babbitt is the RS President of the Omni 2nd Ward and it is her job to see that everything is ok with all her sisters in the ward. When she notices the ward stats are low, it's her responsibility to see why this is happening and when she learns that one family is having financial dificulties, it's her responsibility to make sure the family gets the needed assistance. When Ida Mae and her counselors form a spy group, they decide to call themselves "Secret Sisters." When her less active nephew Ren, who has lived with Ida Mae since his parents died, is trying to work on a patent for a "bug" for eavesdropping, they decide to plant one in The Dunn's home to watch their comings and goings, as it's not a "bug" that hears conversation. The local law enforcement tells Ia Mae to leave the investigation alone, as the sheriff seems to think the sisters are just a bunch of busybodies,but when a body turns up dead, The Secret Sisters with Ren's help, is able to sniff out the evidence they need to find out who the culprits are and save the day. I look forward to the next Secret Sisters mystery, which is entitled "Ida Mae Rides Again." If you like a fun mystery with a bunch of RS sisters "sleuthing" around, you'll love Ida Mae.
