Lead-Pipe Cinch by Christy Evans is the second book in the “Georgiana Neverall” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, April 2010

Drowning in a moat is so Dark Ages…

When Georgiana Neverall left behind her fast-paced, corporate lifestyle to become a plumber’s apprentice in Pine Ridge, Oregon, she thought she knew what she was getting into. But she hadn’t pictured herself knee-deep in a muddy trench building a moat—part of a state-of-the-art castle that would soon house a retired Microsoft engineer.

She also hadn’t planned on running across the man who stole her former company and dumped her—Blake Weston, who’s on site to provide security for the castle. When it turns out Blake’s in a little over his head—in the moat, that is—Georgiana finds herself the number one suspect in his murder. To clear her name, Georgiana will have to pursue the remote possibility that someone out there despised Blake Weston more than she did…

This was an enjoyable and light read. Georgie’s past comes back to her when her ex-boyfriend is found murdered at her job site. Choosing to put her trust to her friends, she tells them of what transpired in San Francisco and then lunges ahead to find who murdered her ex while she becomes the number one suspect. A good showing and I look forward to the next book in the series. My rating: 4 stars
