Some say Sapphire is blessed, others say she's cursed with the ways, wiles and voluptuous genes of her mother Mary.
Mary had a little lamb,
who was never quite as pure as snow.
And now for sure since Mary has went,
a little lamb she has no more.
Mary's Little Lamb has grown up.
You're invited to a cozy read.
Mick Hart returns in the case of Mary’s Little Lamb which is both professional and personal to the private investigator. It's Election Day Tuesday. In the news, Odelot, Ohio elects its first African American mayor. A fatal car jacking has left a woman dead. Two teenage girls are missing: Sapphire Mary’s Little Lamb and Brook, the daughter of John Lincoln, Odelot's, first African American mayor. PI, Mick Hart is called upon to find one of the missing girls, while Odelot's finest searches for the other. The search for Mary's Little Lamb may lead Mick to the other missing teen. Who and what Mick finds through his investigation brings one family joy and the other family pain.
Mick's search for Mary’s Little Lamb leads him to a pack of wolves. These wolves prowl the schoolyards and shopping malls of Odelot and the information highway of the Internet, preying on little lambs. They hang out on playgrounds as child pimps and lurk online as wolves in sheep's clothing. It's up to Mick Hart to find out which ones have nabbed the missing teens.
Mick has a personal grudge toward the newly elected mayor John Lincoln. It's unknown whether Mick lets his hostility interfere with his duty in finding Brook, Lincoln's daughter. If Mick does agree to find the missing teen, it will cost Lincoln. The price comes with Lincoln divulging a painful secret from his past . . . a secret that answers the why to this cozy whodunit romantic mystery.
