Benni Harper is the curator of the Josiah Sinclair Folk Art Museum and Artistís Co-Op. She is looking forward to the opening of the Outsiderís Art exhibit. The crown jewel of the show is a painting by Abe Adam Finch, which he donated through the auspices of his niece Nora, who is in town for the unveiling and to decide whether to settle in San Celina. Besides opening night jitters, Benni worries that her mother-in-law is coming for a visit and she is worried because the woman and her son, Benniís husband Gabe Ortiz, have issues.

One of the major museum patrons Constance Sinclair orders i Benni to find out who killed her closest friend Pinky Edmondson. The medical examiner and her doctor conclude Pinky died from a heart attack so Gabe will not officially investigate though he admits to his wife that she should pretend to look for a killer to keep Constance pacified. Benni questions the exclusive members of the í49 Club, whose only new admissions occur upon the death of a member like that of Pinky.

Benni Harper has reached a bakerís dozen mysteries yet the latest TUMBLING BLOCKS retains the freshness and entertainment of the previous amateur sleuth (with some police procedural support) tales. In some ways this is more a family drama than a whodunit as the mother-son relationship ignites into a megaton explosion while Benni tries to keep her marriage from becoming collateral damage. Still the investigation is enjoyable to follow with a distracted Benni fumbling her inquiries.
