In Perfect for Framing, Jemma Chase’s carpentry skills get her into another mystery. December at a dude ranch in the North Carolina mountains draws more skiers than horseback riders so Jemma turns from leading trail rides to her other two passions – carpentry and photography. Word of Jemma’s skills with wood spreads to a development at the top of an Appalachian mountain where she hears complaints about the Property Owners’ Association president. When Jemma tries to save her from a fire, Jemma’s CSI wannabe instincts clash with Detective Tucker’s investigation. When the lady dies, murder is suspected. When the lady’s husband dies, Jemma sets out to prove it was not suicide. Detective Tucker investigates the neighbors, shop owners, the step-brother, real estate agent and even the agent’s wife.
