Meet the new Stephanie Plum…
Thirty two year old Maggie Phillips hasn’t had it easy. As the wife of retired Navy SEAL Neil Phillips, and the adoptive mother of two little hellions, Maggie is constantly looking for ways to improve her family’s financial situation. She accepts a cleaning position for her new neighbors (who redefine the term ‘eccentric’), never imagining she will end up as the sole alibi for a man with a fascination for medieval torture devices when he is brought up on murder charges.
While Maggie struggles to prove the man’s innocence, her deadbeat brother arrives, determined to sell Maggie and Neil on his next great scheme and to mooch with a vengeance. If that isn’t bad enough, her in-laws, (the cutthroat corporate attorneys) descend on the house, armed with disapproval and condemnation, for the family’s annual Thanksgiving celebration.
As the police investigation intensifies, Maggie searches for the killer among the upper echelon of Hudson, Massachusetts in the only way she can . . . by scrubbing their thrones.
Of the porcelain variety, that is…
If she's provided an alibi, why is he still charged with murder?
You've got a lot of characters floating around here in the SEAL tank, and not much plot.
Im not sure why you think this would be "the next Stephanie Plum" unless you mean something other than the one/two/three series by Janet Evanovich.
