Second in the Lili Marino, freelance PR writer and gourd artist cozy mystery. Set in upstate NY, where Lili has moved to get away from the hustle and bustle of big city life. She’s beginning to settle in to her new life there when a woman is found murdered a short distance from her cottage—and worse yet, the killer has stashed the rifle in Lili’s attic—until it falls onto her kitchen floor. The murdered woman was outspoken about her feelings about the hotly debated casino and she had a powerful personality and the organization skills to put together a strong campaign. Did someone on the opposing side silence her? Or was this personal? I figured out most of the mystery rather early on—the clues were just way too obvious—and like many cozy mystery heroines, Lili seems to have a smorgasbord of men to choose from and can’t make up her mind. *SIGH* Still, I rather enjoyed this, though not as much as I’d anticipated I would.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425212262, Mass Market Paperback)

Brooklyn girl Lili Marino moved to the tiny village of Walden Corners, New York, to find a place where she could pursue her craft: taking gourds from the garden and transforming them into birdhouses, bowls, and beautiful works of art. She never expected to find herself tangled in the vines of some tough mysteries as well... The peace that Lili first found in Walden Corners is hard to find lately: the townspeople are violently divided over plans for a casino. Even Lili's friends are at odds, and she's starting to wonder if her beautiful new life is in jeopardy. Then her bathroom ceiling springs a leak-and when she investigates, a rifle comes clattering down on her head. A vocal proponent of the casino project has been shot in the woods near her house, and all eyes are on Lili. If she doesn't want to trade her gourds for license plates, she's got to find the real killer-and to do that, she'll need a little help from her friends...
