Christa Nardiabout this book: Stacie Maroni is used to dealing with difficult situations. But with an employee transfer, and efficiency expert adding to tensions at work, a friend is in crisis, and her relationship with Kevin at a crossroads, the last thing she wants is to be involved in another murder. Only that's not how it works out. In addition to Stacie's job at Foster's Insurance Group, she's actively involved in working with victims of domestic violence. A secret that many don't want to even acknowledge - and even friends and family engage in plausible deniability, while the victim tries to move on. Add in a touch of deception and you have a murder.
This is a "cozy" mystery in that there is no on-page violence or sex or profanity. The setting is a suburb and a close knit group of friends - and two men rivaling for Stacie's affection, and Jasper, Stacie's Maltese who is not deceived by good looks and charm. One reviewer commented, though, that the series pushes the limits of "cozy" with the domestic violence theme.
