Someone is trying to turn Portland High into a school for scandal with a gossipy website called Dirty Laundry. The latest target of ruinous rumors is newly elected PTA president Sandra Wallage. After a heated meeting with outraged parents, Sandra runs into fellow school mom and private investigator Maya Kendrick, who’s discovered the person behind the website. But when the women storm into the venomous gossip columnist’s office they find a lifeless body—along with a confession.
Although the police rule the death a suicide, Maya suspects an injured party hung the Dirty Laundry creator out to dry. Maya already has a PI partner—but she’s pregnant, and sonograms and stakeouts tend to conflict. So when Sandra volunteers for a crash course in sleuthing, Maya accepts the help. But as these unlikely partners study the clues, a killer plans to teach them a lesson . . .
5 out of 5 stars
This is the first book in the Maya and Sandra mystery series and wow, what a great start to a new series.
I really liked both Maya and Sandra. They were both great characters. I love that this turned into a two woman team, with Sandra teaming up with Maya to try to figure out what happened and investigate the murder.
I was invested in this story from the start. The mystery was very well done. There were lots of twists and turns, but no complaints here! I love a good, twisty mystery where you don’t know who to trust or what’s going on. I wasn’t able to figure out who the killer was and was shocked at the reveal.
I’m looking forward to reading future books from this series!
