Good Ebook Nursery Crimes I wanted to enjoy this book and usher on to a new series of fluffy mysteries. Alas, not as an enjoyable as I had hoped. The author is clearly attempting to write what she knows but it isn't as interesting as it could be. This feels more like a book about motherhood with a mystery thrown in rather than a mystery with a crime solving mother.Our protagonist is a heavily pregnant mother of a two year old. She is an Ivy League educated former attorney now stay at home mom. Her husband is a screen writer and the two of them have a loving a close relationship. While she and her husband are attempting to secure a spot for their precious monster Ruby at a top pre-school, they stumble across the murder of the director of the pre-school.A lot of this book is set up. It is setting the scene for the forthcoming series. However, I did not find our protagonist that likeable. The setting of LA and the mixing in of the Hollywood scene added a drop of interest but not enough. I also found (not that this is the author's fault per se) the use of technology in this book as attempting to be cutting edge. But this book was written/published in 2000. Her illustration of internet chatting and computer sleuthing was a might painful. Again not truly her fault given that a lot has happened in 11 years.This book was only ok. I am toying with the idea of reading the next in the series to see if her writing improves. I cannot say I was rushing to finish, the book was just short and very simple. I will say that the writer doesn't gloss over pains of pregnancy or childrearing - she states front and center that at times her daughter is hard to handle and being a stay at home mom is difficult.
