Julianne Holmes Synopsis: Just Killing Time is the first book in the Clock Shop Mystery series by Julianne Holmes. Ruth Clagan is an expert clockmaker, but she often loses track of time. And when trying to solve a murder, time is essential. Ruth’s shared her love of clocks with her grandfather. Unfortunately after her grandmother died and he remarried, Ruth and Grandpa Thom are now estranged. She has wanted to reconnect after her recent divorce, but sadly they’ve run out of time. Her grandfather has been found dead after a break-in at his shop. The police believe he was murdered. Now Ruth has been named the heir to Grandpa Thom’s clock shop, the Cog & Sprocket, in the small Berkshire town of Orchard, Massachusetts. As soon as she moves into the small apartment above the shop and begins tackling the heaps of unfinished work, Ruth finds herself trying to stay on the good side of Grandpa’s bossy gray cat, Bezel, while avoiding the step-grandmother she never wanted. But as old secrets and grudges start to surface, Ruth will have to kick into high gear to solve the killer case before someone else winds up dead…
