This book turned out better than I expected, and now I'm really beginning to like this genre, where the main character is an amateur sleuth. The main character here is a single (just divorced) mother who has just taken a job as a reporter at a small newspaper, and somehow she finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery.

I especially liked the format of the entire story -- it alternates between newspaper clippings and story chapters, and each newspaper clipping is always somehow re

What can I say? I wrote it, so I'm biased. Read it yourself and let me know what you think.

I'm always read about crime stories in the newspapers and as a forensic science student I always look at the cases from the eyes of an investigator or the criminals and victims.

Recommends it for: mystery lovers, moms
In the manner of Scott Turow, Judy Nichols keeps her stories fresh by having a new protagonist in the same fictional world. In Tree Huggers the amateur sleuth is Kate Dennison, a newly divorced mom re-entering the work force as a reporter for a small struggling newspaper. She balances investigative reporting with motherhood and a newly budding romance. The author combines mystery and danger with a realistic portrait of a woman balancing work and mothering. The characters seemed so real. I really ...more

Fun sequel to the first Kate Dennison mystery story. Hopefully there will be more to the series. The herone has a refreshingly honest viewpoint regarding the developments that surround her new position as a reporter for a Wilmington, NC newspaper.

Just ok, not that exciting. Not sure what everyone else saw in this book. To me it is just a slightly interesting mystery.

This is a murder mystery, but it's also about a single mom muddling through her life, trying to balance all the aspects of her life--her job, her daughter, her new love interest. Really enjoyed it.

Judy Nichols grew up in a Batavia, Ohio, a small town 20 miles east of Cincinnati. Now, along with her husband and daughter, she is lucky enough to live on the coast of North Carolina where she never has to drive in snow and the ocean is ten minutes away.

For no good reason, she decided to write a book while her infant daughter napped. Five years and several viewings of "Toy Story" late
