Nursery Crimes by Ayelet Waldman
The story involves a stay-at-home mom, Juliet Appelbaum, who sometimes finds herself not so thrilled with the day to day life of staying at home with a small child. I found this totally relateable because while I love my children I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my part-time job. I did stay home when the triplets were young and there were days that I wanted to tear my hair out. Juliet finds herself on the edge of a murder and cannot help but put her detective skills to the test (she was a public defender in her former life) and get to the bottom of the mystery. And even though I did figure out whodunit two thirds through the book I still loved it.
