Drip Dead is the third and final book in the Georgiana Neverall plumbing cozy series. It was an enjoyable read and I'm sad to see the end of the series.

While I did't know how I would enjoy a series focused around a plumber, that aspect of the book is not emphasized too much. If anything it lends plausibility to her involvement in murders, such as in this story, finding a body under a house while checking the pipes. Besides plumbers tips at the start of every few chapters, there really isn't any

Georgie, the main character, discovers a body in the first chapter of the book. The next 50 or so pages are devoted to describing over and over how difficulty if is to have Georgie's mother move in with her. Clues are few and far between and the ending seemed rushed. I got really irritated by the frequent references to Georgie's former business and her bouts of temper.
It took until the very end of the book to solve the mystery, so long, in fact, that the end felt rushed into one chapter.

Another in the growing ranks of mystery series whose female protagonists have unusual careers, this series follows the adventures of Georgiana (Georgie) Neverall, a former computer security expert who leaves the corporate life behind to move back to her hometown in Oregon and become a plumber's apprentice.

Though this is the third book in the series, enough background is provided to make the reader feel acquainted with Georgie. As this book begins, she is underneath the house that she grew up in

I love this series, I wish it had continued on. Perhaps it will be picked up by another book company and restarted. Georgie must solve who murdered her soon-to-be step father. And study for her plumber finals. And get her mother out of jail. Sounds like a regular Friday night! This book is light hearted, funny and a keep you guessing to the very end mystery. I happily recommend this book and entire series to anyone - from 9-99.

This is the 3rd book in a series about Georgiana Neverall, a computer expert turned plumber apprentice. Georgiana becomes involved in solving murders, much to the law's dismay.

I have loved all the books in this series so far (am hoping to see more in the future); but this has definitely been my favorite.

Georgiana's relationship with her mother has evolved; but yet not in a kissy sweet way. The characters are realistic and down to earth.

I have enjoyed watching Georgiana grow in her relationships

When she inspects the house she's thinking of buying from her mother, Sandra, she finds Sandra's fiance dead. Now the house is a crime scene and her meticulous mother's moved in with Georgi. But things can get worse--now Sandra is out of the house, but in jail, accused of murder. And Georgi is the only one who ...more

3rd in series, and the author is doing a much better job and this was by far, the best of the 3.

Georgie is a plummers apprentace and when the book opens, she finds her mothers' fiance dead in the crawl space with cases of wine under her mothers house.

Once her mother is arrested for the muder, Georiana is determined to find the killer and clear her mother of the crime.
I enjoy plumbing so I had high hopes for this book. There wasn't as much plumbing as I had expected but the book was fun in general. I liked the characters and would read other ones in this series if I stumbled across them. Like most of these cheesy mysteries, I wouldn't actively seek them out (or pay full price). Good read for a buck though.
