    A delightful small-town Maine amateur sleuth mystery

    After inheriting her great Aunt Irene's home in Waterfield, Maine, New York designer Avery Baker decides to settle in the small-town. Her decision has a lot to do with Derek Ellis, who she has come to care about while renovating her new home; he reciprocates her deep regard. Avery joins Derek in his business Waterfield Renovation & Restoration. They are between jobs so when her best friend Kate asks her to redesign her carriage house that adjoins her B&B so she and her fiancé Wayne can reside there, Avery agrees.

    Kate is also worried about her daughter Shannon; Avery and Derek understand why as they have observed her with an older man on several occasions. One day at the carriage house, they find the body of the man seen with Shannon. He turns out to be her father who came to Maine to see his daughter after learning from the newspaper she was coming into a nice inheritance. The death casts suspicion on Shannon, Kate and Wayne who is the Chief of Police. Avery investigates in hopes her new friend's wedding can take place without a hitch. Derek's assistant Beatrice disappears without a word to anyone. She was last seen at her place of work which also happened to be the abode of Shannon's late father. Avery assumes the vanishing and the homicide are linked, but has no idea how.

    The third Do-It-Yourself mystery (see Spackled and Spooked, and Fatal Fixer-Upper) is a delightful small-town Maine amateur sleuth with crimes that seem unrelated on the surface, but scraping at the grime leads to some interesting results. Avery is a caring person who risks herf life trying to solve the whodunit with less information available to her than the cops possess. Although her reasoning for sleuthing is shaky, her inquiry is solid and entertaining as Plaster and Poison is a pull no punches mystery.

    Carriage House Perils

    Add together In-laws, newlyweds to be, gold digging relatives and you get murder. *** Author Jennie Bentley once again mixes home repair and murder in the third book in her the "Home-Renovation and Design Tips" mystery series. Designer Avery Baker and home renovator Derek Ellis find surprises as they work to transform an old carriage house into a romantic home for soon-to-be newlywed friends, that is, if murder doesn't bring everything to a screeching halt first.

    Fabulous Third

    This series has pulled me in from the first, I absolutely loved the titles. The catchier the title, the more interested I am. Bentley answers all the questions you have and more, and there is always a yearning for more at the end.
