This was my first Carla Neggers novel and it doesn't make me feel like a I want to try another one anytime soon.

Boring story about a boring woman who thinks she has this HUGE secret that she writes children's stories under a psedonym and oh no what if the private investigator who happens to be flowing into town for a non-issue discovers her secret?!?
Throughout the story I'm yelling "NOBODY CARES!"
