Publisher’s description: “Kate Connolly would like nothing more than to cuddle with her new baby, except to solve her next case and become a bonafide P.I. She gets her chance when San Francisco’s hottest critic writes a particularly scathing review about the trendy new restaurant, Philosophie. The critic’s boyfriend falls to his death under mysterious circumstances from Painted Rock Cliff, and Kate fears that the restaurant critic may be targeted next. Battling sleep deprivation, diaper blowouts and breastfeeding mishaps Kate muddles through her own investigation, Mommy style. To Do: 1. Buy Diapers! 2. Order dust kit & Lock pick set (need real P.I. tools!) 3. Figure out what happened to Perry—was it accidental death? 4. Find skull cap man and figure out why he’s following me. 5. Get back in shape!”
Setting: San Francisco
