Monster in Miniature
by Margaret Grace
Genre: cozy mystery
Series: A Miniature Mystery
This is the thrid and final book in completing my Goodreads mini challenge for October. I joined late, so I only read 3, next month I will do better! This is also my first time to read a Miniture Mystery or a book by Margaret Grace. I am so glad I did. I never knew there was so much interest in 'dollhouses'. I don't know why I am a super crafter, there can never be enough glue or glitter in the house. I have even built a dollhouse. Of course now it sits abandoned in the corner, (sigh).
A brief synopsisi first. Gerry, short for Geraldine, is an avid miniaturist. She is working on a haunted house with her eleven year old granddaughter Maddie. Maddie is a Nancy Drew wanna be! While the two are strolling down a street covered in Halloween decorations they, along with a group of teenagers, discover a dead body. In true cozy fashion the victim is related to a fried of Gerry's and she must find out what happened. Along the way city corruption is discovered along with secrets of her late husband. If that's not enough Gerry maybe on the cusp of a new relationship with a nice retired gentleman, who also like to be crafty. Sounds like a match made at Michael's!
