カリフォルニアでなら、上半身にブラを着けただけの格好で宅配便を受け取りに玄関にでる女性も皆無ではないかもしれない。しかしそのブラというのが、スナップでカップ部分を開閉できる授乳用のもので、それをはらりと開けたまま配達員の前に立つ女性はそうはいないだろう。
でもジュリエットは心底くたびれきっているのだ。生後4ヶ月の息子は20分以上続けて寝たことがない。頭が朦朧として、上の娘を幼稚園に迎えに行く時間だというのにまだ歯磨きもしていないくらいだもの、授乳していたそのままの格好で玄関に立ったからどうだというのだ。
そんな状態だから、偶然知り合った少女がベビーシッターに来てくれるとなれば、断る理由はない。娘が幼稚園に行っている間の2時間ばかり、息子を見ててもらって、邪魔されることなく眠れるならこんな嬉しいことはない。
ところがこのベビーシッターが、2日目にして行方不明になってしまった。親に押し付けられた結婚がいやでボーイフレンドと駆け落ち? 宗教上の理由を盾に警察に届けようとしない両親に代わって、捜索に乗り出すジュリエット。少女を無事に見つけ出せるのか?
伝統を大事にする宗教と、それに忠実であろうとする人々、そんな家族の中で現代っ子らしい生き方を望む子供たち。悩めるときに心の拠り所となるべきものが足枷に感じられるとき、傍からはそれをどうにもしてあげられないときに、何かしてあげたいというジュリエットの優しさがうれしい。

5つ星のうち 4.0 Funny and entertaining "Mommy-Track" mystery 2002/1/13
By E. Bukowsky - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
The protagonist of Ayelet Waldman's "The Big Nap" is Juliet Applebaum, a graduate of Harvard Law and a former public defender. After marrying the love of her life, Peter, she moves to Los Angeles. Unfortunately, Juliet rarely sees Peter anymore, since he is busy most of the time developing a television pilot. Juliet is now a stay-at-home mom, who dearly loves her adorable three-year-old daughter, Ruby, and her four-month-old son, Isaac. However, Juliet is suffering from acute sleep deprivation, leaking nipples and a lack of adult conversation.
So what's an overtired and understimulated mother to do? Butt into other people's business, of course! Juliet delves into the diappearance of an eighteen-year-old Chasidic girl named Fraydle Finkelstein, who baby sat for Juliet's kids on one occasion, and who then disappeared without a trace.
Juliet uses her investigative powers, her contacts from her working days as a lawyer, and her innate nosiness to solve the question of what happened to Fraydle. Did the girl run away to avoid an arranged marriage she didn't want? Or did something more sinister happen to her? Since her parents refuse to report Freydle's disappearance to the police, Juliet feels that it is her duty to investigate.
When Juliet visits her mother and father in New Jersey, she even takes a side trip to Borough Park, Brooklyn. She interviews Freydle's prospective bridegroom, and little by little, she fits the pieces together until, voila, she solves the crime.
Waldman has a wry and clever sense of humor, and there are many laugh-out-loud passages in "The Big Nap." In fact, the first page has such a funny scene that I laughed out loud on a public bus and drew puzzled looks from my fellow passengers. Waldman's takes on breastfeeding, sleep-and-husband deprivation, weight gain after pregnancy and a mother's love-hate relationship with her small children are not only funny but real.
The mystery is not too believable, nor is it realistic that any Chasid would give Juliet the time of day, much less reveal any inside information to her. However, the conceit of mysteries like this is that people talk to the investigator, even if she has no business asking any questions in the first place.
However, Waldman nicely describes some of the dynamics of the Chasidic community from the vantage point of a non-Orthodox Jew. The mystery is engrossing, if somewhat far-fetched, and you could do worse than spend an afternoon with the amusing Juliet Applebaum, mommy and sleuth.

5つ星のうち 5.0 cozy and fun 2001/10/5
By F. Turner - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
I like cozy mysteries, but never would have bought this book if I hadn't met Ayelet at a book reading/signing because the Mommy-Track thing put me off a bit. Her wit and humor impressed me, and I thoroughly enjoyed The Big Nap. Now I'm looking forward to reading more of her work.
Her books will also make great gifts. There is no offensive language, graphic sex or violence that might offend readers, and her humor is warm and engaging.
One of the scenes in The Big Nap that I particularly enjoyed is when Juliet (the protagonist) is confronted by a thuggish gang of Hasidic men, warning her to mind her own business.
If you appreciate a mystery told with warmth, humor, and peceptive insights into human character, I recommend this book.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Strong Second Mystery 2004/6/20
By Mark Baker - (Amazon.com)
形式:マスマーケット
Stay at home mom Juliet Applebaum is struggling to adjust to the birth of her second child, especially since 4 month old Isaac hardly sleeps at all. She finally hires a young Chasidic girl from her neighborhood to baby sit for a couple hours each day. But after the first day, the girl vanishes. Against all reason, Juliet finds herself drawn to find this young woman, especially after her parents refuse to call the police. But what could make her run away? And can Juliet find her while juggling an infant, pre-school, and her husband's strange work schedule?
I enjoyed the first book in this series but felt it had some flaws. This book was much stronger and the same flaws didn't plague this book. It has a fun sense of humor, and while I felt Juliet complained a bit too much at times, I appreciated her love for her family which still came through. The plot is better developed here, although why this woman would search for this girl is beyond me. Even Juliet acknowledges that it doesn't make much sense.
I'm glad I've been collecting the paperbacks as they've come out. I won't wait so long to revisit Juliet and her family.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A fun read 2001/6/13
By Harriet Klausner - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
Juliet Applebaum studied extra hard and for long hours at Harvard to become a lawyer. However, to her own amazement and to the shock of her spouse, she quits her profession to stay home as a full-time mother. On a good night, her youngest child Isaac sleeps perhaps for ten minutes all evening (a slight exaggeration except when you're the parent with no sleep). Her spouse is not home to provide Juliet with any help with the wide-awake child. Suffering from sleep depravation, Juliet accepts the services of Hasidic Jew Fraydle.

Fraydle's baby-sitting allows Juliet to obtain some decent sleep. However, when the girl fails to return Juliet tries to learn why only to find out Fraydle is missing. Worried as time passes with no word, Juliet visits New York where her baby-sitter's fiance lives (as well as her own parents), but obtains nothing new. Juliet returns to Los Angeles where she realizes that Fraydle has a secret lover here in California who might have answers.

The trails and tribulations of a mother with a restless newborn and an older preschooler add a unique feel to a fascinating story line. Readers also obtain a glimpse into the social and cultural life of a Hasidic Jew, a group who isolate themselves from the rest of society. This adds an additional uniqueness to the entreating BIG NAP. Juliet is a modern heroine refusing to quit or take another snooze until she feels justice is properly served.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Cute mystery, interesting characters 2001/8/29
By Moe811 - (Amazon.com)
形式:ハードカバー
New mother Juliet Applebaum Wyeth needs sleep. Between ferrying her three year old to preschool and playdates and a newborn who wants to party all night, she hasn't had a decent night's sleep in four months. Her screenwriter husband is no help either. He is working on a new series with a nearly perfect Mindy as a partner. By a stroke of luck, Juliet finds a babysitter at the local kosher grocery, a young Hassidic girl named Fraydle. She does a wonderful job but doesn't show up the next day. Her family doesn't know where she is and Juliet is determined to find out the truth. I enjoyed this book. It combined three worlds I know little about, motherhood, Hollywood, and Hassidim. The mystery is very good and the characters very real. Enjoy.
