My Comments:
I'm feeling a little generous giving this book even 2 stars! I had such a hard time reading this one to the conclusion.. There were too many characters floating around with not much purpose.. I found the relationships between them to be forced and not very life-like at all.. The jokes on the lame side and even the conclusion not fully explained and very rushed.. Even the start of the story was rushed. The murder had already happened and been found out the night before..  The writing style seemed jumpy and inconsistent.. yeah lots of complaints on this one LOL

I hate saying things like this, but I couldn't find a single reason to want to read more of the series at all..  :(

Description from the publisher:

A new series takes shape-the debut of the Clay and Crime mysteries.

Includes directions for a pottery project!

In Maple Ridge, Vermont, Carolyn Emerson planned to ease into her golden years running her paint-your-own-pottery shop, Fire at Will. She never expected to uncover a dead body in the shop, and she certainly didn't plan on a drop in live clientele.

Now it's up to Carolyn and her shop's pottery club, The Firing Squad, to help clear her name. But can she find a killer and more customers without her own brush with death?
