A Deadly Grind- Virgina Hamilton
Meet Jaymie. She has a passion for vintage kitchenware. Her older sister doesn't share this passion, and often refers to it as Jaymie's junk. They attend an auction where J buys a vintage cabinet, known as a Hoosier, much to her sib's annoyance. Unbeknownst to the sisters, there is a valuable object concealed in the Hoosier, and someone is NOT happy that it's in their possession. A man breaks into their house and is killed, and the story is off and running. Throw in an eclectic mix of friends & neighbors, a jerk ex-boyfriend and his pretty, rich, young new girlfriend, a local festival, a three legged dog, and a charming detective, and you have this inocuous but pleasant read.
