$25 Amazon/PP-1-WW-Murder at the Spa: A Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery #21-Dianne Harman Ends 7/30

Friday, July 9, 2021



Bookkeepers are under paid and under valued in most cases--How do I know this--I've been a bookkeeper for longer then I want to remember. Even though I am now semi retired--well I am just going to say one thing--there are some bad bookkeepers but more bad accountants who blame the bookkeepers for anything that is wrong! And a lot of small companies don't even have an outside accountant to check up on things!

Unfortunately the person hired as the bookkeeper for the spa had a background that she was able to hide. She was also able to not only pay off another employee to hide the errors--she was also having an affair.

The spa owners daughter was trying to learn the business but neither the bookkeeper nor her assistant would give her the books--Then the assistant was found dead in the hot tub--but who did it-there were actually several people who could have done it. The daughter was charged with murder. Kelly was asked to help solve this murder and prove the daughter was not guilty by the daughter's birth mother and her adoptive parents--things could get kind of sticky-but have faith--all turns out right in the end!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

When a daughter that Kelly's best friend gave up for adoption at birth is accused of murder, Kelly has no choice but to see what she can do to help. But there are several things that present major problems. A sheriff who just wants a quick conviction, a woman who has a history of embezzling, an errant husband looking for a way to escape from what life had dealt him, a jealous competitor, and a frustrated employee. So just who was the murderer?And what about that red-headed judge? Could he inadvertently preside over a murder trial where his daughter is the accused killer? A daughter he didn't even know he had? Join Kelly, Liz, and a Belgian Malinois dog named Niko, as they hunt for the murderer, and redemption for an innocent young woman.This is the 21st book in the Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series by a USA Today Bestselling Author.

I've had my brand new cellphone stolen from my desk at my office before....

Darlene said...

I did catch someone stealing at work and had to fire them. I would want to know my adopted parents even if they didn't want me to know them.

Deb PelletierC said...

Yes I did see someone stealing, and had a talk with them. My mother wish she had looked up her father. So I would.

lildevilgirl22 said...

No thankfully that has never happened to me

wen budro said...

I have not caught anyone in the act. I would be curious to find out who they were.

susan1215 said...

I have not caught anyone in the act of stealing. If I was adopted I would be curious about my biological parents and any siblings I might have.

Kari B said...

If I was adopted, I would definitely be interested in who my biological parents were.

Sherry said...

I always took Advil and other medicine to work with me in a big bag and one day I turned around and one of my co workers was helping himself. I was excuse me what are you doing? There was a lot of lunches stolen where I worked and a few Kindles disappeared.

no

Jeanna Massman said...

If I was adopted, I would want to know about my biological parents because I am very interested in genealogy. I don’t recall catching anyone stealing.

Michele S. said...

I have seen anyone in any of my career stops stealing at all.. in academia the only thing it could have been is a book or a pencil.. As for me if I was adopted I would not look for my bio parents.. the people who raised me are my parents...

Rita Wray said...

No I have never caught anyone stealing. If I was adopted I would be curious who my biological parents were.

katieoscarlet said...

No i have nvere caught anyone.

Thomas Gibson said...

I have never caught anyone stealing.

David Hollingsworth said...

I've never had a job, so I have never caught anyone stealing.

If I was adopted, I don't know if I would want to find my biological parents. If they gave me up, then maybe they don't deserve to meet me.

clc408 said...

I have never caught anyone stealing. I don't know whether or not I would search for biological parents. I would be curious but maybe a little resentful.

PAIGE said...

I caught an employee stealing, I fired her. It was simply awful

Alecia Gibson said...

I've never caught a co-worker stealing but in high school, one of my classmates stole my backpack. I caught her with it and she started crying and swore that it was her backpack even though my name was written on the tag. She told the teacher that I actually took it from her and wrote my name in it. The teacher took her side and I got detention. Then I went home and got yelled at by my parents because I had a brand new scientific calculator and $50 for my lunch bill in the backpack.

Debbi Wellenstein said...

I didn't catch the person, but a person who I worked with had been embezzling for about 5 years before finally being caught.

About the biological parents, I would want to find out.

Ellie Wright said...

I have not ever caught a co-worker stealing.

Actually My husband does not know his birth father. He didn't find out until he was 16 that his dad was not his biological father. He did not want to know who he is, or even his name.

Veronica Lee said...

I have not caught anyone in the act of stealing.

If I were adopted, I would want to know who my biological parents are.

Unknown said...

My mom was adopted and she sought out her birth parents. Turns out she was better off in her adoptive family which is just our regular/main family. If I were adopted I would definitely be curious and look for them. I'm a curious person.

Anne said...

My mother was adopted and while she looked up her birth family (they already had 6 kids), she, I think, was afraid to meet them. She just said her family was the parents who adopted her and another girl.

We live in the same area and I have had people come up to me, including two former bosses who mentioned they saw me, and one was quite angry that I ignored her. So, I know I look a lot like a biological cousin (most likely). I am very curious to see this person, I think it would end up being horribly awkward.
