Sink Trap (A Georgiana Neverall Mystery #1)
Former corporate drone Georgiana Neverall loves her new occupation as a plumber's apprentice, but is a bit surprised when she finds the favorite brooch of Martha Tepper, the town's former librarian, clogging a sink. Georgiana has a sinking feeling that Martha may have been retired permanently-and suddenly it's up to a plumber's apprentice to flush out a killer.

There is a lot to like in this first of a plumbing themed cozy mystery series. The main character, Georgiana Neverall, her mother, Sandra, her “not my boyfriend”, Wade, and boss, Barry are all good characters. They are interesting and behave as they are drawn. The relationships between them flow naturally in conversation and are believable, (who doesn’t have moments that t ...more

I loved this book; the characters were well-developed and lovable. I thought I solved the mystery, then I changed my mind; it had enough twists and turns to make it interesting right to the end. I love the personalities of all the characters; they were realistic a ...more
She has the requisite pets for a cozy, this time a pair of Airedales. There's the best friend and the boy friend who isn't really a boy friend--a high school ex-boyfriend. He's a little too mild for me, I think she should dump him but we'll see.
If it picked up the pace and added more action, it would've easily have been a three star.
However, aside from the mystery itself - I like the setting, the characters, the writing. It felt like reading the book went by too fast - "No, wait, I'm not ready to be done yet." I will probably read the next one to see if the mystery aspects are sharper.
