The girl in the green raincoat: a novel by Laura Lippman — I'm only slightly ashamed to admit that I scoured the mystery fiction stacks for a short book in order to fulfill my Sleuth It badge. This was a decent mystery, though, and part of the reason I picked it is that the main character is in her final trimester of pregnancy.
