The Mud Peddler
First in Celina Cabot pottery mysteries.
When her ex-boss’ body is discovered in a make-shift coffin under a pile of pippins, life begins to get off center for Celina Cabot. Being suspected of embezzlement and murder, while dealing with normal life upheavals such as moving into a new home, opening a new gallery, and dumping a sticky boyfriend, will do that.
Visions of a bucolic life as a full time artist and potter are put on hold as Celina stays ahead of a sleazy deputy who wants her, and a homicide detective who wants her behind bars. Even an overly-attentive P.I. has her under surveillance. After all, Celina had wished her boss dead in a fit of temper when she quit, the day he disappeared. And she had access to the missing company funds.
As evidence and innuendos mount, she is forced to find the greedy killer herself. Along the way she learns more than she ever wanted to know about her dunted ex-coworkers, her ex-boss' bizarre life, and herself.
Having been stalked, shot, and pushed down an elevator shaft, Celina, wearing nothing but a hospital gown and torn jeans, races to stop the crazed lunatic before another victim ends up buried in a bin full of apples.
