  2. Less than 100 pages to go and I am determined to finish this book In my opinion it is as bad as the first one How can Beth be such a namby pamby about every aspect of her life yet try to convince the reader that she can solve murders better than the sheriff s department Really the story moves along slowly with too much unneeded interaction between Beth and her kids, or or totally looney friend marina This ended up to be the worst book I have ever read At least to my credit I finished it If Ms Al [...]


  3. As we dropped by Traver PTA we find Beth is now it secretary Her divorce from Sam is final and she now runs a children s bookstore Her attraction to Evan is on going Her BFF adds much to the story Beth and Erica find Sam Helmsetter strangled after a PTA meeting Beth hires a person who was convicted of murder and later found innocent Enemies are boycotting her store because she won t fire the person Beth and Mariana looks for answers to the murder to stop the boycott There are several twists and [...]


  4. I really liked this book and the one previous to this Both books take place in a fiction city called Rynwood in Wisconsin Which is supposed to be East of Madison The lead character is a Children s Bookstore owner who is also the Secretary of the PTA Her best friend keeps talking her into solving mysteries The character are warm and memorable and it is easy to get caught up in the story Very enjoyable and I hope there are to come.


  5. Laura Alden has some real promise as a funny mystery writer, but this book needed editing before publication It was too long and slow moving, and there wasn t a lot of follow up at the end on characters like Claudia Wolff Enjoyed the humor, but this book needed a lot of pruning.


  6. Laura Alden gives us a second installation of the PTA Murders Who knew that Wisconsin could be hazardous to your health Beth Kennedy is a single mom with 2 kids that she loves She makes sure to come to her kid s hockey games, attends school functions, manages her home, owns and manages a children s book store, and is secretary of the PTA Still she finds time to solve murders I say murders because this is the second book from Laura Alden in which Beth is impressed into solving a murder because th [...]


  7. Once again, the PTA meeting at the Tarver Elementary School can be a hostile and dangerous place After the latest meeting, one of the most loved and respected members, Sam Helmstetter, is found strangled in his car Beth Kennedy, local bookstore owner and secretary to the PTA, is dumbstruck Who could possibly want to murder Sam What could be the motive Everyone loved Sam As if this isn t worrying enough, Beth has an employee problem and needs help When Yvonne breezes into the store and almost ma [...]


  8. Foul Play at the PTA is a cozy mystery It s the second book in the series, but you don t need to read the first to understand this one Some events from the first novel are spoiled, but not the mystery.The characters were complex and varied, and Beth dealt with realistic struggles financial worries, raising her kids, dealing with an ex husband, etc However, the main character trait for Beth, Marina, and a few other characters was exaggerated to the edge of what was believable, probably to create [...]


  9. This is the second book that I have read in this series so I was already familiar with the characters Foul Play at the PTA by Laura Alden lived up to my expectations.As with the Murder at the PTA, the characters are important than the mystery I enjoyed getting back in touch with the characters and was amazed at the fast pace at the end of the book Beth still has her children s bookstore and her divorce is now final She is very involved in the Tarver Elementary PTA After attending one of the mee [...]


  10. 2 in the cozy mystery series about childrens bookstore owner Beth Kennedy Talk about needing to be Super Mom Not only does Beth need to deal with 2 preteen kids, 2 Wisconsin snowstorms, family members bailing out on her Thanksgiving plans, being secretary of the PTA, and being a small business owner, she also must root out the killer of a fellow PTA member before protests of rumor mongers drive her business under.Laura Alden does a great job of paying attention to detail The characterization is [...]


  11. This is the second in the PTA Mystery Series It s a fun read, once you get past the constant banter between protagonist Beth and her best friend, Marina, plus a fair amount of unnecessary description peppered throughout the book but that s just a personal preference to not see so much of that.Beth Kennedy continues to serve as PTA Secretary at her children s school, and it s following one of these meetings that she and the president discover a dead body She is determined not to get involved agai [...]


  12. Foul Play at the PTA by Laura AldenSummary PTA meetings at Tarver Elementary School can get pretty heated But after parent Sam Helmstetter is strangled in his car following a meeting, mom and PTA secretary Beth Kennedy and her best friend Marina fear there may be a cold blooded killer in the groupQuiet childrens book store owner Beth Kennedy is a prime example of still waters running deep She tries to avoid confrontation And even though her capacity for feeling guilty about things tends to run a [...]


  13. Beth Kennedy, PTA secretary and the PTA president, Erica Hale, are leaving a late meeting when they spot a car parked in the far corner of the lot In it is another member, Sam Helmstetter, with his head on the steering wheel At first he seems to be asleep, not a good thing in the Wisconsin winter, but he doesn t respond when they try to get his attention As Beth is dialing 911, Erica opens the door, Sam falls out and they realize he s been strangled with a scarf.With planning to host her entire [...]


  14. I feel comfortable when I picked up this novel Having had enjoyed the first in the series, I felt that I would easily follow the next volume Beth, is a divorced mother of two, owns her own Children s bookstore, and even finds time to be a PTA secretary Her best friend is Marina, a fun loving fellow PTA member, Beth s child minder and fellow willing sleuth Beth feels unsure of herself and that is a bit wearying I like her boyfriend, Evan a lot and would like to see their relationship grow.This bo [...]


  15. This was a wonderful light read The characters were fun, with Beth being faulty enough to be real I didn t immediately know who dun it, but that was mostly because the info wasn t available until the end of the book I truly wish the best friend character of Marina was developed, but the friendship rings true, and so do the PTA references I love that Beth, the main character, owns a children s bookstore and makes references to the classics and the best of the new books.The peripheral characters, [...]


  16. Beth Kennedy is busy, busy, busy, she s divorced with children, owns a book store, and is secretary of the PTA Oh yes, and solves a murder or two in her spare time It s almost Thanksgiving, and Beth is hosting the festivities, her employee Marcia doesn t seem to be interested in working, and following a meeting of the PTA, Sam Helmstetter is strangled in his car Her new employee Yvonne served time in prison for a murder, but was later found innocent However, the PTA vice president thinks Yvonne [...]


  17. This is the second book in the series and as usually I m not starting with the first one Beth Kennedy, main character, is an extremely busy person She s divorced with children, owns a book store, and is secretary of the PTA The time frame for the book starts around Thanksgiving Beth is trying to get her book store ready for the Christmas shopping season She still has to attend PTA meetings and after the last one a member is found strangled in his car Beth has a new employee named Yvonne, who ser [...]


  18. It is the second book in a series of PTA mystery books However, the PTA is only a small part of the small town It s an easy read My friend Shelley would have read it before lunch It s light and fun, but after having read two Lee Child books it took some time to adapt to the fluff.So, now what do I read My choices are tremendous I m tempted to go back and see what Reacher is up to However I have received a copy of a book It was given to me in the parking lot of where we hold our Shelby Writers Gr [...]


  19. BoycottAs we dropped by Traver PTA we find Beth is now it secretary Her divorce from Sam is final and she now runs a children s bookstore Her attraction to Evan is on going Her BFF adds much to the story Beth and Erica find Sam Helmsetter strangled after a PTA meeting Beth hires a person who was convicted of murder and later found innocent Enemies are boycotting her store because she won t fire the person Beth and Mariana looks for answers to the murder to stop the boycott There are several twis [...]


  20. When the nicest man in town is murdered after a PTA meeting, well, it had to be an outsider, right And the only outsider is now working at Beth s children s bookstore, so she becomes the obvious suspect But Beth doesn t believe it and once again she and Marina are on the case.This is book 2 in the PTA series, and I thoroughly enjoyed it Sometimes Beth is a little hard to take in her wimpiness, and Marina is a bit grating in her odd humor, overall the characters are likeable and the storyline kee [...]


  21. When PTA member Sam Helmstetter is murdered in his car following a meeting, Beth and her BF Marina start searching for the killer in the group But Sam is known around town as the nicest guy in town so what could be the motive and who has something so dangerous to hide Another very strong plot by Laura Alden Beth and Marina are likable sleuths and the small town setting is charming as well.


  22. Always like it when an unknown to me author turns out to be a treat to read Ms Alden has created real characters They are prone to all the foibles generosity of spirit of real people To quote one of my kidlets when they were very young, It s a good book It s really real I admit it doesn t hurt when we appear to share similar taste in books, humour, parenting Will definitely be keeping an eye out for further works.Anne of Green Gables was set on Long Island.ort giggle


  23. Slight improvement over the first book It s hard to like the main character She s such a wet noodle, lets people walk all over her And she s still carrying her diaper bag as a pocketbook, even though her youngest child is 8 Beth Kennedy is such a morose character, she needs a Prozac prescription


  24. When two PTA officers discover a dead body, the little town of Rynwood goes into shock The dead person was universally liked There s simply no motive financial, emotional, legal for the murder But Beth Kennedy is sure that her little business will fail if a murderer isn t found and soon So she and her impetuous friend Marina go hunting for dangerous prey.


  25. If the first one was 3.5 stars, but not really a round up, this one is 2.5 stars, not really a round down I thought the first one had a lot character development and a interesting plot This one was of the same If anything, the characters were less well drawn Still, I have a soft spot for any owner of a children s bookstore.


  26. Beth is leaving the PTA meeting when she realizes that a fellow PTA member hasn t left the parking lot Being dead can prevent leaving the parking lot Beth finally fires her problem employee and hires another employee, who brings a whole other set of problems.


  27. A fun, easy read The lead is a worry wort, worst case scenario envisioner, which I can identify with The ending was a bit abrupt and not well explained This is a good one to take your mind off things, but not as funny or endearing as I hoped.
