Publisher's Summary

When her son's Hasidic babysitter vanishes, public defender turned stay-at-home mom Juliet Applebaum travels from her havoc-filled home in Los Angeles to a Hasidic enclave in Brooklyn. In search of answers. In pursuit of justice. And in desperate need of a big, long nap.

Mixed feelings

This is an entertaining book with a good plot and the characters are very likeable. There are some unrealistic moments that I won't list because it would be too many. However, the book is funny and nicely written. I'm a bit offended by Juliet's approach in this book. She invades the privacy of people she did not know and did not understand. I think she may have lost a friend or two in this book. Other than that this is a good read.

Perfect Detective Story for Mums

I enjoy Ayelet Waldman's writing and I'm sure many mums will find it easy to empathise with the character of Juliet Applebaum; a happily married mum with a toddler and a baby, longing for a bit more sleep and the intellectual stimulation of her earlier career. Fortunately Juliet has a knack for stumbling on suspicious circumstances that allow her to put the investigative skills she honed as a federal prosecutor back to use. I found this instalment particularly interesting because I learned a little about the customs of the Hasidic Jewish community. The American narrator is very believable as the Juliet character.
