    clever, often humorous and definitely complex amateur sleuth

    Her live-in-lover, the ¿nice¿ Elliot, was arrested for embezzling and quickly turned state¿s evidence on his employers for money laundering. Persia Vanderbilt left to return home to Gull Harbor on Puget Sound¿s Port Samanish Island. There she works for the woman who raised her, her Aunt Florence, owner of Venus Envy, a business that creates custom blended oils and spa services. --- Lydia Wang, the winner of the Radiance Cosmetics Beauty Contest, asks Persia to make a special scent for her. While she is waiting, Lydia is nasty to the store¿s gardener, her ex-boyfriend Trevor Wilson. She also gets into a fight with the beauty contest runner up Colleen and Colleen¿s friend Debbie who has an inferiority complex. The next day when Persia opens the business, she finds Lydia¿s murdered body the police arrest Trevor because they found the murder weapon contained his prints. Neither Persia nor her aunt believes Trevor is guilty and Persia sets out to prove it, almost losing her life in the process. --- India Ink has written a clever, often humorous and definitely complex amateur sleuth mystery. The protagonist is a martial arts expert who is a very feminine, feisty and independent woman. The murder victim had many enemies due to her abrasive and cruel attitude so it is impossible for readers to figure out who killed her until the author chooses to reveal that person¿s identity. SCENT OF THE GRAVE is a very disciplined and unusual mystery, the start of what smells to be a winning series. --- Harriet Klausner

    Scent to her grave

    This book was good. It was a fast read. The character are original and the plot was good. It kept me in suspense until the end. I would recommend this series. The only problem is you have to order it on line. This series is not available at the barnes & noble store.

    I was excited to start a new series with a new theme. I had not

    I was excited to start a new series with a new theme. I had not read anything with this type of theme before and was really excited. The setting was quaint and identifiable. Persia and her aunt are a great combination for owning the bath and body store. Their relationship is very unique in that they only have each other. Persia is just back to the small town from having lived away for some time, and has to work through issues of the past. Her aunt is a great reminder of the fact that things are different now.

    Persia is also faced with a murder in her Aunt’s story and does not want it to affect the business. Obviously this is both her and her aunt’s means of financial support. Taking on trying to solve the crime herself, as she doesn’t really trust the Police Chief, she also faces problems from her ex.

    There are lots of recipes for bath salts and oils and suggested uses. It would be a lot of fun to whip some of these up and use during reading time. Persia is a very modern sleuth and diverse character. I liked the freshness of this aspect, as well as the theme. The story was a little slow in parts, but overall a good crime to be solved.

    Recommend to those cozy reader mysteries who are looking for a new theme.
