Kate the PI is back again trying to balance solving murders with being a new mom. This time there are two murders to solve and it looks like several people could be the guilty party (parties?). Somehow the French Consulate figures into it, but Kate has to figure out who and how before it’s too late.
While Formula for Murder is a murder mystery, it is also lighthearted and sometimes funny. The only annoying part is how much time Kate spends obsessing over needing to get back to her baby, Laurie, and whether it would be okay to give the baby formula. It’s like the author needs to remind the reader – repeatedly – that it’s part of the Maternal Instincts series which means the PI has a baby. I recommend it as a quick, easy, fun read.
