"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

Sink Trap & Lead-Pipe Cinch by Christy Evans

Georgiana Neverall Mysteries

Georgie went to Caltech, graduated, got her Master's Degree, started her own computer security business, but something went terribly wrong and now she is back in Pine Ridge taking classes and working as a plumber's apprentice and it's driving her mother crazy.

In Sink Trap, Georgie is working in an old warehouse with her boss Barry "Bear" to get the plumbing up to code so the building can be sold.  While cleaning out a "sink trap" she finds a beautiful old brooch, that looks very familiar.  The former librarian and owner of the building, Martha Tupper wore a brooch just like it everyday without fail.  But it can't be Martha's brooch because she has retired to Phoenix or did she? Georgie can't get anyone to share her concerns so with the help of her friends and her beautiful Airedales, Daisy and Buddha she must flush out what really happened to Martha.

Lead-Pipe Cinch Release Date April 6, 2010

Georgie story continues and we learn what really happened to her computer security business when her old business partner comes to Pine Ridge to work with a retired Microsoft engineer who is building a castle complete with a moat. While Georgia is working in the trench she hears a familiar voice from the past, she knows her secrets are coming back to haunt her.  Things get worse when the former business partner turns up dead the next morning face down in the rain filled trench.  Of course, Georgie becomes the number one suspect because she the only one in town who really knows him.  Georgia becomes entrenched in the case to find the real murderer, but who hated this man more than she did.

Many of you probably don't know that I once gave up my job as an office manager to work on a construction crew with my husband and some friends.  So I loved these stories!!!  I started reading them and couldn't put them down.  They are well written, the characters are wonderful, the plots kept me guessing, and the humor content was perfect.  I cannot wait for the next installation.
