# 49 The Big Nap

The Big Nap

Ayelet Waldman

Former public defender and SAHM Juliet Applebaum has been seriously sleep-deprived since the birth of her youngest child, 4-month-old Isaac.

When help arrives in the form of a beautiful young chassidic babysitter, it just as quickly vanishes when the babysitter disappears without a trace.

Although she hardly knew Fraydle, the babysitter, Juliet is compelled to find the teenager, sensing that the girl may be in trouble. Or is she simply a girl who has run away in order to avoid an arranged marriage?

The search for answers to Fraydle's disappearance takes Juliet from Los Angeles to a tightly-knit chassidic community in Brooklyn.

This was terrific! It was so light and quick to read, but at the same time, it had enough substance to leave me very satisfied. I'll definitely be reading more of the Mommy-Track mystery series!
