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.
