A Playdate with Death


Formats & editions


From the national bestselling author of The Big Nap and Nursery Crimes.
 
In between planning playdates and playing dress up, Juliet finally gets some much-needed kid-free time, working out at the local health club. It’s going well. She’s losing weight. She’s even happy—until her personal trainer commits suicide.
 
A cheerful aspiring actor, Bobby Katz seemed to have it all—and Juliet can’t believe he died at his own hand. She suspects there’s a more sinister explanation—and that it may lie with his grieving fiancée, a recovering addict who just fell off the wagon. Or with his birth mother, a woman he recently started to look for. Always up for a task that will get her out of the house, Juliet keeps running down secrets—until, at last, she runs into the truth.
 
“Smoothly paced and smartly told.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Sparkling . . . swift and engaging.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Juliet’s got charm, spunk, and . . . a reason to get out of the house.”—Kirkus Reviews
