Moving Is Murder (Mom Zone Series #1) by Sara Rosett

"A fun debut for an appealing young heroine." --Carolyn Hart

Meet military spouse, soccer mom, professional organizer, and savvy sleuth, Ellie Avery!

Moving four times in five years has honed Air Force wife Ellie Avery's packing and unpacking skills. But moving with a newborn daughter and husband Mitch in tow, during a heat wave, is enough to make her turn to chocolate for comfort. And when Ellie finds a local environmentalist dead on the side of the road, her instincts tell her this was no accident …

Ellie snoops into the activist's suspicious demise, only to realize she's getting closer to the killer . . . maybe too close! This first Ellie Avery mystery launched a series that continues to win readers' hearts.

Includes great tips for an organized move!

"A fresh new voice…a terrific read." --Denise Swanson

Nice and cozy mystery murder series! Just when I thought I had it figured out, the storyline just gets more tangled and twisted! I really enjoyed this book and will be starting the next book! Thank you!

This book reminded me of my time as part of a military family. Some things were different. When I was in a military family, the enlisted did not socialize with the officers. The story is good but I always wonder why these amateur sleuths ignore all the advise and warnings of the professionals.

This is the first in a series of mysteries featuring military mom and professional organizer Ellie Avery. All in all, it is a very good read. Since I am a military wife myself, I could readily relate to the feelings and the events that occurred in the book. Sara Rossett kept me guessing until the very end, but I admit that the culprit was on my final list of suspects. The only character that I would like to see Sara work on is Mitch, Ellie's husband. He was a little too milquetoast for me. He needs more personality. He also seems to get off at all hours just in time to watch the baby so that Ellie can run around with Libby and look for clues. This is not what happens in most of the military!

I have moved many times with my family from the east coast to the west coast and many times in between. First time reading this author and thoroughly enjoyed her. She offers many great moving tips.

I love cozy mysteries, and I wanted to love this book, but just couldn't. Yes, I enjoyed the characters and the premise, but for whatever reason, I was unable to get into it. Maybe it was that a lot of this revolved around the military culture - something I am not a part of. Either way, I was disappointed that it wasn't as great as I had hoped because the series looked awfully cute.

A little slow here and there but all in all a very good read. You are kept guessing until the end as to 'who did it!"

Seemed like she threw way too many unnecessary characters into the story line - had to stop and try to remember who is that? What are they to the story again?? A few less characters would have been better. Took a lot to tie up the loose ends and "solve" the mystery.
