I enjoyed every minute of this audio book, and am amazed that it is the author's debut novel. She writes wonderfully, with full, rich characters, and a compelling mystery that makes one keep guessing, "Who done it?!". As an artist myself, I especially enjoyed the references to art and painting, and her colorful, and often humorous descriptions of the scenes and characters.

The narrator did a fantastic job, and enriched the story and experience. She was perfect!

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with likable, true to life characters, that keeps you guessing until the end. I'll miss those folks, and can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.
