Moving Is Murder

Ellie Avery has many roles in her busy life. She is a loving mom to her a beautiful, newborn daughter, Olivia, a wonderful wife to her handsome husband, Mitch, who is an U.S. Air Force pilot, and a great friend to her best friend Abby. Plus, she is brilliant professional organizer: she has to be, with having to move four times in the passed five years! Now, Ellie can add Sleuth to her long list of roles in life.
 
Ellie finds Cass Vincent, an Air Force spouse, whose husband Joe is in Mitch’s squadron, dead after the squadron’s barbeque. When things about Cass’s death just do not add up, and another Air Force wife ends up dead, and the police just do not have a clue, Ellie decides to start digging around and looking for some answers herself, in between taking care of a fussy newborn, attending the Air Force spouse’s coffees, setting up her new home, and helping out and organizing the squadron’s garage sale. But, when one too many accidents happen to and around Ellie, she believes the killer does not like her asking questions about the murders, and if Ellie is not careful, she may find herself ending up like Cass: DEAD! Will Ellie leave it up to the police to find the killer or will she realize that she is in too deep and cannot and will not give up until the killer is revealed at last?
 
Sara Rosett has given us a great new murder mystery, with a strong female sleuth, whom you will love to follow as Ellie goes on the chase to find the murderer! In “Moving is Murder” you will meet some very interesting people along your journey with Ellie, both the two-legged and four-legged kind, some of them will make you cheer, while others will make you roll on the floor with lots of laughter! Two of my personal favorites of the book are Ellie herself and Rex.
 
Sara Rosett is herself a wife of an U.S. Air Force pilot, who gives us civilians an inside look at Air Force life and plenty of helpful moving and organizing tips! Plus, she does a great job of explaining a lot of the Air Force lingo, such as TDY. Sara Rosett has given us a brilliant first book “Moving is Murder” in her new (A Mom Zone Mystery) series! I cannot wait to read the second book in the series “Staying Home is a Killer” which is out now!

Book Blurb for Moving Is Murder

IN SEARCH OF A LITTLE PEACE AND QUIET

Moving four times in five years has honed Ellie's considerable skills. But moving with a newborn daughter and husband Mitch in tow, a record-breaking heat wave, and the realization that their dream neighborhood is known as Base Housing East is enough to make her turn to chocolate for comfort. Now half of their neighbors are with the 52nd Air Refueling Squadron. Forget privacy.

WHAT SHE FINDS IS MURDER

Forget peace of mind, too. Driving home from her first squadron barbecue, Ellie finds neighborhood environmental activist Cass Vincent dead on the side of the road. The police call it an accident-Cass, fatally allergic, was stung by wasps-but Ellie's not so sure. And when it looks like Mitch's best friend might be a suspect in the murder, Ellie starts snooping in earnest. What she finds shocks her-and when suspicious "accidents" start happening in her own backyard, Ellie realizes she's getting closer to the killer.maybe too close!

Filled with Ellie Avery's Great Tips for an Organized Move!
