Book 1, A Lainie Lovett Mystery
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books 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.
I thoroughly loved this book. Mystery, quick witty humor throughout the story. The author made me feel like I was one of the close friends. Alittle subtle cussing...but when said--the tension of the situations eased a great deal. NO using God's name in vain. I appreciated that so much. If it hadn't been for Lainie Lovett, the bungling or seemingly inept police detective would have put innocent people in jail...and kept them in there.
New author to me. Yes, it was a free book. I read it in 2 days-late into the wee hours! I am a new fan. Will gladly pay for future books of this writer. I highly recommend Judith Arnold!!!
The flow and story line of this book was excellent. I recommend this book.
One of the best free books I have ever read. Couldn't put it down.
