About this item

A fun, fresh, and twisty debut whodunnit about a grandmother-mother-daughter trio who come together as amateur sleuths to solve a murder in their coastal California town."A lively and tender story of family that Simon deftly transforms into an edge-of-your-seat murder mystery... One part The Maid and one part family drama à la The Nest, Mother-Daughter Murder Night is a resounding and impressive triumph." - Katy Hays, New York Times bestselling author of The CloistersNothing brings a family together like a murder next door.High-powered businesswoman Lana Rubicon has a lot to be proud of:her keen intelligence, impeccable taste, and the L.A. real estate empire she's built. But when she finds herself trapped 300 miles north of the city, convalescing in a sleepy coastal town with her adult daughter Beth and teenage granddaughter Jack, Lana is stuck counting otters instead of square footage - and hoping that boredom won't kill her before the cancer does.

About the Author

Nina Simon

When I was a teenager, I desperately wanted to do two things: quit school and design pinball machines. To my parents' relief, in college I translated these passions into a dual pursuit of electrical engineering and radical educational theory. When working at NASA proved decidedly less creative and social than I'd hoped, I shifted into science and children's museums, designing exhibits, producing puppet shows about math, and generally loving work in a free-choice learning environment.

I worked on staff at the International Spy Museum and The Tech Museum of Innovation before striking out on my own as an interactive exhibit designer focusing on visitor participation.

Writing has always been part of my life. I was a slam poet throughout college, and in 2006, I started the Museum 2.0 blog, which set me on a trajectory away from traditional interactive immersive exhibits and into the world of user participation. Now I write, consult, and design exhibits from a cabin off the grid in Santa Cruz, CA. And I couldn't be happier.
