We can’t call in the. cops-at worst, you’ve only found missing property. And it does look like she plans to come back, I agreed. But I know there’s something wrong. I just don’t know exactly what it i. .I laughed nervously, feeling embarrassed. Wade did try to warn me about Paula’s stories. He said she would have some tragic tale, and he was right about that.

Such a fun book with an original heroine and plot. I thoroughly enjoyed it. This author is the kind who makes a reader hope that she writes fast. She also avoids all of my button-pushers. She doesn't misuse words (I'm getting sick of the word "smirk" being misused--it has a negative connotation and should be used that way). I digressed. Anyway, she uses good grammar with actual transitions from one idea to the next. She knows what adverbs are and how to use them. If you are wondered what this has to do with the book, it's simply that I cannot enjoy a poorly crafted book full of poor English and incorrect usages. Other reviewers will give you the details on this book . The details of the book can be great--good ideas, plot, characters--but poor presentation will kill it. This book has it all. The plot is fun, the characters believable, and the presentation well-done.

Titles in this promising cozy series are: (1)Sink Trap (A GEORGIANA NEVERALL MYSTERY), (2)Lead-Pipe Cinch (A GEORGIANA NEVERALL MYSTERY), and (3)Drip Dead (A GEORGIANA NEVERALL MYSTERY).

The Publisher's Blurb set the scene: "When Georgiana Neverall's fast-
paced lifestyle goes down the drain, She moves back home, to Pine Ridge, Oregon, and
apprentices herself to Barry the Plumber. Her uptight super-successful realtor mother is
disgusted, but Gerogiana loves her new occupation. She's surprised, however, when she
finds Martha Tepper's favorite brooch clogging a sink. The town's former librarian
supposedly retired to Arizona, but everyone who knew her says she would never have left
without that brooch."

What I liked from the start was the idea of a woman plumber. She worked
hard and in the process provided several plumbing hints. For example: "To keep your
garbage disposal odor-free, run a citrus rind - orange, lemon, grapefruit - through it
about once a week." {Page 59}

I also liked the small-town setting in a state not often featured in a
mystery. And, although there was a lack of strong character development, I liked most
I met, both human and animal. {Every good cozy should include an animal}. A list
follows: (1)WADE: Georgie's boyfriend, city council member, accountant. (2)SUE:
Georgie's best girlfriend, owner and operator of Doggy Day Spa. (3)BARRY: Georgie's
boss, owner and operator of Hickey & Hickey Plumbing. (4)PAULA: Georgie's friend, new
librarian, wife of Barry. (5)SEAN: Georgie's divorced co-worker. (6)JANIS: Georgie's
newest friend, former cook and housekeeper for Martha. (7)SANDRA: Georgie's widowed
mother, employee of Whitlock Estates Realty. (8)GREGORY: Sandra's boss and boyfriend.
(9)DAISY and (10)BUDDHA: Georgie's airedales.

What I did not like from start to finish, and what made it three-stars
for me, was Georgiana's peevish, spoiled-brat demeanor. In this coffee shop scene for
example: "The people at the counter had gone back to their lunches, and the waitress
was busy at the other end of the room. No one was paying any more attention to us.
'No one's looking, Wade, ' I said. They all know it's just Doc Neverall's nutty
daughter. You know, the one that went away to that fancy school and then decided to come
back here and be a plumber.' Bitterness rose in my throat and I washed it down with a
gulp of scalding coffee. 'I've heard them. This is a small town, as you remind me.
Often. Everybody has an opinion, and a lot of them are quite happy to share it with you
whether you want to know or not.' Wade sighed and stared into his coffee cup."
{Page 283}.

I found Georgiana's attitude toward her mother especially disturbing and
shameful. Witness the book's opening scene: " 'Georgiana, Georgiana Neverall, is that
you under there?' My mother, Sandra Neverall, the doyenne of Whitlock Estates Realty
and one of the more demanding customers of Hickey & Hickey Plumbing, stood in the doorway. Her stylish stiletto heels, the only part of her visible from my position under
the utility sink, looked impossibly out of place on the dirty concrete of the warehouse
floor. My mother could turn a simple hello into a referencum on my entire life. 'Yes,
Mother, who else would it be but your only daughter.' I regretted it the instant the
words left my mouth. She knew how to push my buttons, and I knew she knew, but it didn't stop me from rising to her bait." {Page 11}.

She called her "Sandra aka Mother," {Page 47} and at the book's end, her
Helpful Top Ten Tools For Most Home Repairs concluded: "One final note: If I ever find
a tool (a legal one!) that will help me deal with my mother, I'm adding it to the
list." {Page 368}.

I'm adding the second book to my list, and, hopefully, the third.
Thank you.

The mystery in this book is pretty predictable. Even as far in to the book as about 1/2 (pg 133 to be exact), they STILL are in the discussion/wonderment phase of "Where is Martha?". You find yourself reading each person's rendition to the next person of how Martha left w/o her beloved brooch and how curious that is. It goes through several town residents and you still are not ANY closer to action being taken. IE: it drags in the first half.
Unlike some others, I enjoy Georgie's "relationship" with her mother. No it's not perfect but whose is? The mom obviously cares for Georgie and vice versa. You have to have some spice in there and , since there is NO romance in this book (stress: NONE), well the spice comes in G's dealings with her mom. I also liked the quirky character of Janis.
This is a somewhat bland book overall, but strangely enjoyable nonetheless. I agree with O.P. that you get NO description of Georgie and you really are left to your own imagination of what she looks like. Makes it hard to put her in mind's eye. There is also a lot of tea being heated, steeped and served, and you are treated to many passages of the dogs being let in/let out/given treats. I mean, it's a cozy so not high literature. I will try book 2 in this series but as another poster mentioned, if it's not a bit better, I won't buy book 3.

If you like the more current series about the Florida souvenier shop by Christy Fifield -- the same author -- you'll enjoy the 'woman plumber' series even if you don't think you would. It's fast moving, lighthearted, and with humor. Good 'escape' reading!

I really enjoyed Sink Trap. Main character and secondary characters are interesting and plausible. No one has a life threatening disease (every once in a while an author feels the need to add TOO much reality in my opinion). I am getting ready to purchase the next 2 books in the series for my kindle.
Background - I love Donna Andrews, Joanne Fluke and Ann B Ross.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Sink Trap. It was a fun and interesting book. Can't wait for the next "Georgianna Neverall Mystery" - get going Christy Evans!
