Cricket McRae's Home Crafting Series
This series features Sophie Mae Reynolds, her housemate and best friend Meghan Bly and her daughter Erin and their corgi, Brodie. Sophie Mae makes beauty products and runs her business out of the basement of their home, and Meghan is a lawyer turned massage therapist who also works at home.

Lye In Wait Book #1 in the series

The author has you from page one as a body is found in the basement workroom of Sophie Mae. The body is their handyman and next door neighbor Walter Hanover and it appears he has died from drinking a glass filled with lye. Something Sophia Mae keeps on hand for her business in a large supply. Do the police think she s the murderer, No, they rule it a suicide. But Sophie Mae doesn't believe it for a second and the book takes us on a wild ride as she investigates.

I really enjoyed this book, there was suspense, plot twists and turns, and wonderful characters. I can honestly say it was UNPUTDOWNABLE. I am really looking forward to book #3.
