A Fatal Slip is a well written/plotted mystery with a very feisty protagonist. One has to wonder how she manages to have friends in spite of aggressive investigations. So far, she's been accused of murder in the first volume and now her husband is the sheriff's first choice for this murder. ( )

I like this series and especially like the fact that as a couple, Carolyn and Bill, married for almost 30 years, still appear to love each other, even if occasionally they irritate each other to no end. That is so realistic to me, not perfect but they work hard to take care of each other.

In this book a crooked building inspector gets into a fight with Bill and several hours later is found dead in a bucket of slip clay behind Carolyn's paint-your-own-pottery business. Of course, that makes Bill the number one suspect.

Carolyn puts her group of friends, "the Firing Squad" to work on finding other suspects and background information on everyone involved with the victim which brings to light some long buried and some newly held secrets.

As usual Carolyn ends up in some danger and Bill is exonerated. The killer was on my radar but I didn't have anything to say absolutely "that's the one".

Will be reading more in this series. ( )
