This is the third book in the Fine Arts Mysteries by Paula Darnell. I really love the camaraderie that the town, neighbors and gallery vendors all have for each other. Someone apparently didn’t believe in that kind of friendship when they convolutedly poisoned a man via goodies sold at a craft fair. I’ve enjoyed watching Amanda adapt to her new town and make friends since the first book, and now I’m looking forward to the next adventure for her, Laddie and Mona Lisa!
My Goodreads review:
I enjoyed this Christmas mystery with Amanda having settled in her new town. Belle and Dennis are such awesome neighbors and gave her the most amazing Christmas gift-she had just as nice of a gift for them too. There’s always a good mystery with this series and plenty of small town camaraderie as well.
The killer came as a complete surprise to me, and the showdown was awesome thanks to Mona Lisa kitty. She got to dig into the killer just in time! Once the murder was solved, Amanda and Emma could finally settle into a good winter break, and Amanda managed to finally get a good sale once she branched out a bit. I always enjoy catching up with Amanda and her gallery friends as well as her sweet neighbors.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
