Why do I have it? I love contemporary mysteries and Karen Robards is a new author for me.
For Grace Hart, single mother and Family and Juvenile Court judge, solving other people’s problems is easier than solving her own. Her daughter Jessica has just been diagnosed with diabetes, is struggling with maintaining the disease and Jessica begins sneaking out and experimenting with alcohol and drugs as well as running with a fast crowd. When the police are called for a break in at Grace’s house that coincides with one of Jessica’s sneak-outs, Detective Tony Marino clashes with Grace but eventually moves in to protect them from a still-at-large stalker. I liked this book but thought it was a little bit of an easy ending. I give it an A!
