Paint the Town Dead
by Sybil Johnson

There are enough plot twists and turns to keep the reader interested and guessing right up to the end. Prepare to do nothing else until the book is finished!

The reading was easy, the story flowed smoothly and I had a chuckle or two at the characters expense.

Synopsis:

“Johnson paints characters with a folksy charm that makes them feel like family…Color me a fan!” – Diane Vallere, Author of the Material Witness, Style & Error, and Madison Night Mystery Series

“Rory is definitely a quirky character; she has the ability to draw the readers in so that they want to follow her through her adventures.” – Suspense Magazine

The Ocean Painting Society invites you to join the painting wave…

It’s June in the quiet Los Angeles County city of Vista Beach, the place computer programmer and tole-painting enthusiast Aurora (Rory) Anderson calls home. Decorative painters are flocking to the newly built Akaw hotel to attend the Ocean Painting Society’s inaugural convention.

During the week-long event, Rory plans on shopping the trade show floor, working in her mother’s booth, taking classes and connecting with other decorative painting fans. She doesn’t expect to witness her childhood friend collapse in class and die. When the police find no evidence of foul play, Rory embarks on her own investigation. Can she brush aside the lies to uncover the truth and bring the killer to justice?

Related subjects include: cozy mysteries, women sleuths, murder mystery series, whodunit mysteries (whodunnit), amateur sleuth books, book club recommendations, craft and hobby mysteries.


Review: PAINT THE TOWN DEAD by Sybil Johnson

PAINT THE TOWN DEAD is one of the most relaxing cozies I have read. This second in the Aurora Anderson. Mysteries Is laid back, gentle, and heartwarming. (Guess that should be in the definition of "cozy.") Aurora ("Rory") is a tole-painter and freelance programmer in Vista Beach, California, a formerly quiet community--until the new Akaw Hotel was constructed. Now some residents are angry, picketing--and throwing rocks in windows, including Rory' s. But all that shouldn't conflict with the Ocean Painting Society's inaugural convention, should it? Hopefully not, but then Rory' s childhood friend, who suffers from narcolepsy, collapses in a tole class at the convention. This time, she isn't asleep.
