Mother Knows Best (A Margie Peterson Mystery)

Mother Knows Best (A Margie Peterson Mystery)  by Karen MacInerney

Things aren’t going well for private investigator and mom Margie Peterson. Her husband, Blake, is claiming his taste for drag queens is “just a phase.” Her first-grade daughter isn’t fitting in at her new posh elementary school, Holy Oaks Catholic School. And her hippie mother has swept into town and replaced the family’s store of processed foods with seaweed snacks. To top it all off, a late-night phone call from her boss, Peaches Barlowe, has pulled Margie into a very strange murder case, one that involves the Holy Oaks headmaster, George Cavendish. Poor man—he just happened to die in a dominatrix’s pink vinyl wading pool while wearing nothing but Aquaman tights and goggles.
As it turns out, there are a lot of people who might have wanted Mr. Cavendish dead, from his bereaved, betrayed widow to the shady owners of the local strip joint. Not even Margie’s best friend, whose daughter didn’t get into Holy Oaks, is above suspicion. Can the overtaxed PI solve the case before things get even weirder?

*I received this in exchange for an honest review*
This is a cute, funny mystery. Margie reminds me a lot of Stephanie Plum. She bumbles her way through solving the mystery, but is just hilarious as it goes. Real life mom and wife issues help create a loveable character! Though it's a series, I didn't feel left out. There were mentions of things before this, and I need to definitely read those, it wasn't confusing. This book was amazing and I loved every moment of this book. I've found a new author to help allieviate me from the boredom of romance after romance in my reading list!
