Surprisingly good

This was a pleasant surprise. Juliet is a pleasant competent woman who is a bit of a busy body. After putting her career on hold to be a stay at home mom, Juliet is bored and restless. She can't help but get involved when she hears about a woman at a preschool being murdered. She really has no business getting involved but Juliet doesn't let that get in the way. Along the way we meet Ruby, Juliet's daughter and Peter, Juliet's husband and a host of friends and foes. All together they are entertaining and fun. This is a good book and I look forward to the next one.
