Funny start to a cozy mystery series set in Austin

Mother’s Day Out (A Margie Peterson Mystery Book 1)

By: Karen MacInerney

Rating: 5 of 5

This is a really funny cozy mystery set in Austin, Texas. We lived in that city for seven years and much of the attitudes and, certainly, the geographical locations are spot-on.

Margie Peterson is a stay at home mom whose children are going to a pricey preschool because her husband, a lawyer trying to make partner, wants them to go to that particular school.

In order to make ends meet, Margie decides to take on a part-time job. When her resume and the jobs available to her don’t quite meet her expectations, she takes the first job that seems a bit interesting (and which don’t involve walking dogs or cleaning houses.)
