7/10 - Along the lines of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, only subtract bachlorette bounty hunter and insert housewife detective. I really enjoyed the Judith Singer character, she was fun and quirky, and I was glad that she didn't back down to her hubby. She was actually pretty 'real' despite her stereotypical upper middle class surroundings. The love interest left much to be desired however and I hadn't realized when I picked the book up it was copyrighted in 1978. Other than that it was an okay read, kept things interesting enough.
