Another great mystery with Georgie and Aleta, 66 year old twins. This story is perfect as a stand alone although I loved continuing the adventure with the twins. The characters, even the minor ones, are well developed. There are several plot twists and sub plots to keep you guess and interested. Very enjoyable.
Richard Batt, owner of Fit Family Gym, commissioned Georgie Kaye to paint a portrait of his cat. Afterward, he says something unexpected came up and he cannot pay her at this time. He promises to pay her the next day during a Cruise on Lake Michigan. During the cruise, Decklin "Deck" Zannowski is given an award for the success of his franchise. A little while later, a call of "Man Overboard" finds Deck in the water, dead. Was Deck's death an accident? If not, who would want him dead? Can Georgie figure out what happened? Will Georgie ever get paid for the Pet Portrait she did for Richard Batt? Sandi Scott does a great job of keeping you guessing in this installment of the series. There are plenty of motives and red herrings to keep you reading clear through to the end.
