Malice in Miniature by Margaret Grace is the third book in the “Miniature” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime (Penguin), February 2009
When her son’s family descends on her quiet home, craft miniaturist Geraldine Porter is absolutely thrilled. Now she has the help of her adorable eleven-year old granddaughter, Maddie, to complete a room box in time for “the Real President’s Day” of Lincoln Point. But when trouble looms over the event, she’ll need to enlist her little helper for a much bigger project. Gerry’s neighbor June Chinn has shocking news. June’s friend Zoe has been arrested for murder. Zoe’s boyfriend, a local artist, was found artfully killed – and now June desperately needs help. But Gerry soon discovers that there are some unsavory folks who think that Gerry’s better off sticking to room boxes than sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong.
Another enjoyable book in this series. My rating: 3.5 stars
