Maddie Porter is making her first miniature scale model without grandmother Gerry’s help: a school assignment of a waste-water treatment plant. Meanwhile, Gerry’s miniatures group welcomes its first male crafter, ceramicist Ron Templeton. But when his wife, tech executive Audrey Moore, turns up dead at the local B&B, Gerry and Maddie feel they must solve the murder before it becomes the site of Gerry’s wedding to Henry Baker in a few days. However, her homicide-detective nephew, Skip Gowen, is determined to keep Gerry and Maddie out of harm’s way. But the eleven-year-old is getting too smart—and devious—for her cousin to keep her away. As always, Grace has included a section of “Gerry and Maddie’s Miniature Tips” at the end of the book.
