Booby Trap is book four in this award-winning series starring the plus-sized, middle-aged, and whip-smart Odelia Grey.

Could Dr. Brian Eddy, plastic surgeon to the rich and famous, possibly be the Blond Bomber serial killer? Odelia would never have suspected the prominent doctor of killing the bevy of buxom blonds if she hadn't heard it directly from her friend Lillian—Dr. Eddy's own mother—over lunch one day.

Newlywed Odelia decides to stick her big nose into the case. But this mystery gets even messier than Odelia's chicken parmigiana sandwich, with everything from homeless kittens to Mob connections. Even with the help of her husband Greg and dog Wainwright, friends Zee and Seth, Detective Dev Frye, and her boss Mike Steele, Odelia discovers just how difficult — and dangerous—it'll be to bust this killer.

Good cozy mystery. A serial killer is on the run, and Odelia gets mixed up in it again.

As a plus-sized woman I really related to this character. What a gutsy writer to be brave enough to create such a real character rather than a cookie-cutter. The story was also highly entertaining and well written. Look forwards to her next works.
