Book 1, A Lainie Lovett Mystery
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Widowed schoolteacher Lainie Lovett has three passions: her two nearly-grown children, her fourth-grade students at the Hopwell School, and the Rockettes, her recreational soccer team. One evening after soccer practice, she’s startled to spot the husband of one of her teammates canoodling with another woman in a local eatery. She’s even more shocked when he turns up dead the next day. And more shocked yet when she winds up under suspicion as an accessory to murder. But Lainie is smart and she’s stubborn. She’ll figure out who killed her teammate’s husband—if she can stay out of jail, if she can stay alive, and if she can hang onto her sense of humor.
This book was well written and easy to read. As with most murder mysteries, there are a lot of twists and turns in attempting to find out who did it, with one exception, the chief character is also one of the suspects.
This was a fun read with a very appealing central character. Good plotting and an interesting puzzle. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series.
