Statue of Limitations by Kate Collins



 Inside a Goddess’s Mind
By Kate Collins

My name is Athena but I’m not really a goddess. I’m one of four sisters, all but one named after Greek goddesses. There’s my oldest sister Selene, named after the goddess of the moon. She’s a hair stylist and does not howl at full moons. Then there’s my younger sister Maia, goddess of the fields and harvest, who is a yoga instructor and vegetarian, something the Greek side of my family just can’t wrap their minds around. And last is my sister Delphi who, because she was named after the Oracle of Delphi, believes she has the gift of foresight. In Greek tradition, she reads coffee grounds left at the bottom of a cup of Greek coffee. Sometimes she gets it right, which has only served to encourage her. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to intervene when she scared a customer with one of her predictions.
    I guess I should tell you that my family owns Spencer’s Garden Center, housed in a converted barn on the northern end of Greene Street in the coastal town of Sequoia, Michigan. I love working at Spencer’s because I love flowers and shrubs and trees of all kinds and I love helping people choose them.
    What I have lately discovered is that I also love solving puzzles, which has led me into some, shall we say, scary situations?  I’ve also got a keen sense of justice, and when I see someone suffering from injustice, I’m quick – some would say too quick – to jump in and help. This has led to the above scary situations. In fact, I’ve just extricated myself from one of those situations by the skin of my teeth, earning me the title, which was dubbed by the press, The Goddess of Greene Street.
    I can’t tell you more than that, but I promise that you’ll enjoy solving the puzzle with me, and even biting your nails as I get myself into quite a sticky wicket. You’ll also have some laughs along the way, as that’s part of my nature.
    I hope you’ll enjoy Statue of Limitations, the first of my adventures as The Goddess of Greene Street.

In this delightful new series by the New York Times bestselling author of the Flower Shop Mysteries, Athena Spencer comes back home to work with her crazy big Greek family at their garden center. But she never expected a return to her roots would mean protecting her family from murder . . .
After her divorce, Athena has returned to coastal Michigan to work in her family’s garden center and raise her son, while also caring for a mischievous wild raccoon and fending off her family’s annoying talent for nagging. Working alone at the garden center one night, Athena is startled by a handsome stranger who claims to be the rightful owner of a valuable statue her grandfather purchased at a recent estate sale.
But she has even bigger problems on her plate. The powerful Talbot family from whom her pappoús bought the statue is threatening to raze the shops on Greene Street’s “Little Greece” to make way for a condo. The recent death of the family’s patriarch already seemed suspicious, but now it’s clear that a murderer is in their midst. Athena will have to live up to her warrior goddess namesake to protect her family from a killer and save their community from ruin . . .
