Hush Hush

Motherhood. Protagonist and private detective Tess Monaghan is not the working mom who has everything tuned to perfection. Her three-year-old daughter, Carla Scout, is both precious and precocious. Tess’ latest case in the novel titled, Hush Hush, causes her to face a woman who killed her own child. The plot is complicated, and for me, Tess seemed off her game throughout this novel. The backdrop of Baltimore remains rich in this novel, but Tess seemed to be more energized during a quick trip to New York City than in her normal life. Maybe it was the illusion of being “off duty” as a mom, even for a short while. That illusion is, of course, broken. Fans of the series are those readers most likely to enjoy this book. I found others in the series to be more entertaining than this one. Rating: Three-star (It’s ok) Click here to purchase Hush Hush from
