In just over two years, I have fallen in love with Henery Press and the Hen House (using their terminology) of editors and publication assistants. Each book is a cool, well-written, mystery that leaves the reader wanting more - from the author and from the publisher.
Fatal Brushstroke is no different. Rory Anderson and a Pomeranian, Mitzi, discover a finger attached to a body buried in her backyard. The nosey neighbor, Mrs. Maldonado, Detective Green (no first name), and her mother, Arika, all contribute to a lively story in the small artsy, crafty, village of Vista Beach. All of this would not have been a problem except Detective Green is not sure of her guilt or innocence and Police Chief Marshall knows she is guilty (after all, Rory Anderson was guilty until proven innocent - yeah, there is a story there, too.) It is in the midst of “Arika’s Scrap ‘n Paint” (part art store, gallery, studio, and school) that pieces of the crime begin to come together.
For the reader looking for a fun, cozy, mystery to use up time during the relaxing autumn months, Fatal Brushstroke may just fill the bill. It was a pleasure to review this fun book from start to finish.
