Take the Monkeys and Run (Barbara Marr Murder Mystery, #1) by Karen Cantwell

Take the Monkeys and Run by Karen Cantwell
This is a cute, silly, lighthearted murder mystery. At first, I was annoyed with Barbara because she really does not seem like a very dedicated mom, nor is she believable in other ways, but still the book is very funny. I laughed out loud at Barbara's mom who apparently did some of everything before getting married including being a spy. Barbara herself reminds me a bit of I Love Lucy. Just imagine Lucy in the suburbs solving mysteries, pretending to be Sigourney Weaver's character in Alien as she faces the bad guys. With monkeys, mafia, the FBI, Barbara's old boyfriend, and a cop who looks like Brad Pitt, the novel is a really fun read.
