Malice in Miniature

Miniaturist Geraldine’s nephew arrests a local for murdering her boyfriend. Enlisted to help find the real culprit, Gerry comes upon criminal artists who wish she’d mind her own tiny business.

Gerry Porter couldn't be happier. Her husband, daughter-in-law and granddaughter Maddie are living with her while their new home, now much closer to Gerry, is being finished. She loves having Maddie around all the time, and knows she'll be a big help in finishing up her room box for the great President's Day celebration. But when her neighbor June comes to her crying foul because her best friend has been arrested for murder (by Gerry's nephew & June's boyfriend no less), Gerry can't turn her back on her. She knows she must help. Unfortunately several people want Gerry to keep her nose out of their business and in her miniature creations. With the help of her little partner in crime Maddie, Gerry sets out to figure out just who wanted the artist dead. I appreciate how the author gives readers tips on how to create the tiny masterpieces for her creations as this is something I've always wondered about. The crime solving team of Gerry & Maddie is not one you normally see in cozy mysteries, and I think it's why I enjoy this series so much. Now that Maddie lives closer I'm sure there will be many more mysteries for this grandmother and granddaughter to solve together, and I can't wait to find out what they are.
