Read full description of the books:
Private investigator Tess Monaghan is confined to bed rest during the end of her pregnancy. To pass the time, she sits on the sun porch watching her neighbors. She notices a dog running free, but the dog's owner--a girl who always wore a green raincoat--never showed up again. Tess is suspicious about the young woman's disappearance, and she enlists the help of her friends to find the missing dog owner.
The book first appeared in the New York Times Magazine as a serial novel. It seems to be a humorous takeoff on the short story/movie "Rear Window". The Girl in the Green Raincoat is an entertaining short mystery with a twist at the end, but it's not one that I'll remember for long.
