“A laugh-out-loud, wacky and hysterical romp.” — Sue Ann Jaffarian, author of the Odelia Grey mysteries
Life is pretty typical for stay-at-home mom Margie Peterson. She's got a peanut-butter-covered wardrobe, an attorney husband who's always at the office, and a mother-in-law who keeps slipping her books like "Sex Secrets of Happy Wives." Then she lands a part-time job at a seedy P.I. firm — and her humdrum suburban life is turned upside-down.
By the end of her first day, Margie's totaled her minivan, submitted a picture of a naked man in Saran Wrap to the school newsletter, and accidentally participated in a drag queen contest. When she finds a dead transvestite in the “Princesses’” room of a gay bar, she decides it may be time to hang up her hat and start planning Tupperware parties. Then she picks up the drag queen’s phone… and discovers the last call the dead man made was to Margie’s own house.
"If you love a mystery with the most unlikeliest P.I. EVER... with enough snort-worthy moments to have the family looking up and wanting to know what’s tickled your fancy… then, yeah, pay Margie Peterson a visit. You will not be disappointed." — Bookaroo-Ju
