Mayhem in Miniature by Margaret Grace is the second book in the “Miniature” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime (Penguin), August 2008

Gerry likes working in a smaller scale, yet her to-do list is anything but.  Between creating a miniature Victorian room box for the holiday auction, teaching crafts at the Mary Todd Retirement Home, and watching her granddaughter, Madison, her calendar is bursting with holiday cheer – until she has to add in a murder investigation.  The gardener at the nursing home has been found dead, and one of her very own craft students, eighty-seven-year-old Sofia Muniz, is the prime suspect.  With the help of a friend and fellow crafter, Gerry turns the home upside down trying to clear Sofia’s name.  What she uncovers in this upscale community is not a tiny cans of worms – it’s more like a twisted bunch of foul snakes.  And it’s up to Gerry to shrink the mystery down to size.

This was an entertaining read.  My rating: 3 stars
