Bored with playdates and trips to the park, Juliet Applebaum, a public defender turned stay-at-home mom, gets off the mommy track to hunt down the murderer of a preschool principal.
The Big Nap
When her infant son’s babysitter disappears, an exhausted Juliet and her over-tired kids travel to Brooklyn to find answers, justice, and maybe the chance to get a nice, long nap.
A Playdate with Death
Juliet is happy to be getting some kid-free time at the gym—until her peppy personal trainer dies under mysterious circumstances. Always up for a reason to get out of the house, Juliet jumps at the chance to investigate.
