Updated back cover copy for DIY#3 - PLASTER & POISON

...because I whined about the original. I like this better:

Avery Baker was once a New York designer, but inheriting her aunt’s old Maine cottage has led her down a new career path in home renovation. Finding a property’s hidden potential has rewards and challenges—especially when a mystery surfaces behind the walls...

Avery’s friend, bed and breakfast owner Kate McGillicutty is finally getting hitched to police chief Wayne Rasmussen. They've asked Avery and her boyfriend, Derek, to renovate an old carriage house behind the B&B. It's a daunting task, especially since Avery’s mother is arriving in town for a lengthy stay (and to judge—ehem—meet Derek), but Avery’s not stressed. She’s excited to remake the seen-better-days carriage house into a romantic Parisian-style retreat.

But the course of home repair never did run smooth, even when sanders are involved. One night at the carriage house, Avery stumbles across a lifeless body amidst the paint cans and plaster. It turns out that the murder victim was someone Kate knew all too well. All of a sudden, this small town is abuzz with big suspicions, and Avery realizes she must unravel the mysterious murder before Kate can tie the knot…

So there you have it.
