Dolled up for Murder by Deb Baker

This is the first book I've read in the Gretchen Birch Murder Mystery series. As most of you know, I love to learn a little about a new area or a glimpse into something I might not have otherwise known and Deb Baker does a great job in "showing" the reader around Phoenix with descriptions of Camelback Mountain and sharing how the brutal summer heat affects the characters. This is a series I will be following. Gretchen Birch is a character I want to read more about and the little tidbits about the doll collecting/repairing cottage industry is intriguing.

"Caroline Birch. Put her away." The message was clutched in the fist of a destitute former doll collector found dead at the bottom of a cliff with a valuable French doll’s parasol in her pocket. And the person seen fleeing the crime scene fits Caroline’s description. But Gretchen Birch knows her mother is innocent. The problem is, Caroline has disappeared – and she’s left an urgent warning that Gretchen is in danger, too.

enjoy reading about Phoenix. I do not recommend going there - you think TX is hot? Phoenix has to be the portal to hell. (just my opinion.)
