It turned out that the glass art collection was worth a small fortune--and as we all know--fortunes can cause lots of trouble! But who wanted Pia dead and for what reason?

On a lighter note Martys dog who insisted on wearing his pink booties before setting paws in the desert was cured of this particular habit?

About the Book: (from Amazon)

From seven time Amazon All-Star Author comes another page-turning murder mystery.

Antiques, polo, and relationships. What do they have in common? Murder!

Why was the Palm Springs polo club owner's fiancee, Pia, murdered? Old relationships, Mafia vendettas, and inheritances all play a part in this cozy mystery. Jack Rutledge, the owner of a world class polo club in Palm Springs hires Marty Combs, an antique appraiser, to evaluate Jack's collection of art pottery and Pia's collection of art glass. When Marty and her husband, Jeff, a Palm Springs police detective, attend a cocktail party at the Rutledge Polo Club, they find themselves in the middle of a murder mystery.

Who killed Pia? Was it Kevin, the has-been polo player jealous of Jack's success? Roberto, the reputed second-in-command of the West Coast Mafia who loved Pia? Gerta, Pia's sister, who feels the art glass collection willed to Pia should be hers? Pia's ex-husband, a felon newly released from prison? Jensen, Jack's son, who'd been promised he would inherit Jack's very valuable art pottery collection, or even Lupe, the polo club owner's maid?

I am so intrigued by the dog with the pink booties! That's such an interesting plotline.

Dianne Harman said...

Thank you all and especially Michele. The bootie came about because I was visiting my son in Seattle. He'd just had his deck redone and his big Lab refused to go on it unless he had booties on. My 6'2" son was mortified!
