Bake Sale Murder - Leslie Meier

So far, better than Chocolate Snowman Murders by a LOT. Although one of the women in the neighborhood, Willie, is seriously getting on my nerves. She doesn't like one of the girls on the cheer team with her daughter because she's curvy. Are you kidding? What kind of curves damage your personality? And now she's on about the girl hanging out with this other guy when her mom isn't home--and it's kind of creepy that she's even noticing something like that. Apparently promiscuity is "catching." 


This book is full of more judgmental middle-aged women who think they're fabulous and everyone else is doing everything wrong. Please tell me this isn't what being an adult is like?
