Lye in Wait by Cricket McRae

Sophie Mae lives a quiet life running a home-based business selling hand-crafted soaps and lotions. Until the handyman drinks lye and ends up dead in Sophie Mae’s workroom. The death is quickly ruled a suicide, but not willing to accept that as the answer, Sophie Mae sets out on her own, sometimes dangerous, investigation to figure out what really happened.

Lye in Wait is a real page-turner. I barely could put it down. I thought it was going to be predictable and thought I had things all figured out when a bombshell was dropped and it turned out I was all wrong. Then I thought I had it all figured out once again, but, again, I was all wrong. The action starts right away and doesn’t quit until the very end. Excellent book!
