"Solid amateur sleuth"
Nina Collette Quinn thought she had the perfect life doing
the work she loved and being married to the man, she
thought was her soulmate. One day while washing Kevin's
boxers she notices lipstick on them; she confronts her
husband, who confesses that he is cheating on her. She
kicks him out but her stepson Riley remains behind with
her. Her landscaping business, Taken by Surprise, is
booming, but someone is stealing her equipment and with
three ex-cons on her payroll, she has many suspects to
Her oldest friend Bridget finally gets pregnant and Nina
is delighted though she becomes worried when she learns
that her friend's father-in-law was murdered even though
the police think he died of natural causes. Nina
volunteers to help find the killer but while
investigating, she almost is killed by one of the
suspects. A short while later one of Nina's suspects is
killed and her fingerprints, which she failed to wipe off,
lead the police to her as the number one suspect.
Heather Webber's debut mystery is fascinating as the
heroine copes with a divorce, a recalcitrant stepson who
is part of a school gang, a business that is losing
valuable equipment, and the death of a man who was her
mentor. Nina copes with all these problems admirably and
investigates the two murders although it means putting
herself in danger. Readers will admire Nina and eagerly
await the next mystery starring this intrepid champion.
