Molded 4 Murder (Sophie Kimball Mystery #5) by J.C. Eaton. Murder / Mystery Release & ARC Review.

A view to a kiln ...

Sophie "Phee" Kimball enjoys working as a bookkeeper for a private investigator. If only her mother Harriet could enjoy her retirement at Sun City West in Arizona--instead of constantly getting involved with retirees being prematurely put out to pasture. This time Quentin Dussler, a prominent member of the clay sculpting club, was found dead, clutching a piece of paper scrawled with Phee's mother's name.

Terrified she's been targeted by assassins, Harriet begs Phee to investigate. What Phee uncovers is a complicated scheme that only the most diabolical of murderers would ever devise. And as she chisels away at confusing clues and potential suspects, Phee unearths something far more precious and valuable than she could imagine. Eager for answers, she takes a bold step--placing herself in the crosshairs of a stonefaced killer ...


Sophie (Phee)Kimball is an accountant for a firm of private investigators.  She just can't help getting involved in more than she should. 
Two little old ladies she knows think something is going on at the retirement home they live in.  When a murder gets added to the mix the whole firm must investigate. 
This is a very humourous mystery,  with fabulous characters.  It's nice to have a heroine in her forties who is getting lots of help from the older generation. 
There is a nice little bit of romance as part of the back story that connects the rest of the series.  You can read this as a stand alone but if you intend to read the series I would recommend reading them in order. 
A lovely light-hearted murder/mystery. 
Good fun.
