Created by Diana Orgain
Well, it was bound to happen -- with the glut of cozies clogging up the pipes, and the burning question of why a caterer or a florist or a dog walker or a pastry chef would continually be involved in homicide investigations, it was really only a matter of time before some of these niche-marketed amateur sleuths turned pro.
That's the case with Diana Orgain's "Maternal Instint Mysteries." By the fourth book, it was becoming pretty clear that stay-at-home new mom KATE CONNOLLY was stretching the limits of credibility and probability when it came to her just happening to become involved in murder cases.
So the author decided to give Connolly a reason to snoop. In her fourth outing, 2015's Nursing a Grudge (by federal law, all new cozies must have cutie pie covers and groan-inducing puns as titles), Connolly has decided to become an offically licensed private eye. She figures it'll be a great way to work from home, all the better to keep an eye on her precious baby girl Laurie.
