{Synopsis} – The author of Bundle of Trouble delivers a new Maternal Instincts mystery.

Nights out are hard to come by for new mommy Kate Connelly. So when Kate and her husband are invited to a dinner cruise hosted by her new mommy club, Roo & You, they jump at it. But when the president of the club takes a deadly spill, everyone becomes suspect-and Kate’s on deck to solve the mystery.

{My thoughts} – Kate finds herself considering the possibility of joining a mommy and me group with her daughter. She happened to have run into the co-founders while shopping for baby things. They invited her on a cruise that the moms and dads would be attending in order to give her the opportunity to get to know the other members and a feel for the group.

Kate and Jim go on the cruise and wouldn’t you know someone ends up dead. She isn’t well liked by the officers that are assigned the case and they make it known when she’s being questioned.

I really enjoyed this book. It was fairly jumpy when it came to the back and forth and trying to figure out who could have done it and why, but in the end everything was wonderfully pulled together.

I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
