I’m not sure what I think of this book, actually. I certainly related to the sudden changes a new baby makes to her mother’s (and father’s) life: the wonder of breastfeeding, the mountains of laundry, the lack of sleep, the desire to stay home.

What is a mystery to me is how this new first-time mom could leave, or take, her baby to enter into dangerous settings if the story is meant to be any kind of serious read. I realize a cozy mystery leaves out the gore in the narrative, but I cannot buy into a story that leaves the reader so uncomfortable about this young woman trying to be a sleuth so early after childbirth.

I do have the other books on order from the library, so I will at least read the next one to see whether things become more believable and comfortable for me as the reader. What I’m hoping is that I do not follow my first inclination to call this a fantasy cozy, or some such term.
