The ninth mystery in the USA Today Bestselling Maternal Instincts Mystery Series by Diana Orgain
The only constant is . . . murder.
When Kate’s best friend Paula is hired to renovate one of San Francisco’s famous Victorian-style “painted ladies,” it seems like the gig of a lifetime. But when a stiletto-brandishing tenant chases Kate and Paula off the front steps, it quickly becomes clear that finding the perfect paint swatches is going to be the easy part. And that’s before a skeleton in a Victorian-era gown tumbles out of the attic.
Kate knows she has to take the case . . . but what’s she supposed to do with nine-month-old Laurie now that her main babysitter’s found a new job? Her mom hasn’t been much help since she’s started juggling a string of dates with two men—her boyfriend who wants to propose and an ex who’s back to sweep her off her feet.
Can Kate solve her most complicated case yet between interviewing new nannies and overseeing her own convoluted garage-turned-nursery renovation? Or will all this change be the death of her blooming PI career?
