Drew Westen, social work professor and mother of two young children, would agree that Sharon Abramowitz is a shrew, after meeting her only once at a party. But the next day, when Drew finds out that Sharon, the shrew, has been murdered, she doesn’t care who offed the unpleasant woman. That is, until the police arrest the dead woman’s maid Blanca for the crime. Drew knows the maid and believes in her innocence. She feels she must help exonerate poor Blanca, and resolves to find the real killer. Much to the annoyance of her husband, Drew throws herself and her two babies into the fray as she attempts to track down every lead to help free Blanca. On top of everything, Drew’s mother-in-law arrives from Florida, and life at home suddenly becomes chaotic. Will Drew find the killer, save Blanca, and still manage to care for her babies? Never doubt this snarky mom.
Like her heroine, Jacqueline Corcoran is a social work professor, married, with two children and lives in the D.C. area. She is also known to be a bit snarky on occasion, although her students can't always tell when she's being funny. You can visit her at her website: http://www.jacquelinecorcoran.com/
