It's all in how you view things.

A great read. Two mysteries running alongside and both closed with no loose ends. I must admit that i had one pegged but only got half of the other but I did get the why. Nice, tight construction that flowed well and even allowed for me home front drama with her roomie doing her best diva impersonation. Glad to see that she chose the steadfast rather than the dream in guys.
It all started excuse of the art exhibition. However the evening ended when the curator of

I loved this cozy mystery. The storyline was full of twists and turns keeping the reader guessing until the end. The characters were relatable and well developed. The touch of romance was a nice bonus as well.

Sandie is involved in investigating who murdered the art curator and assistant curator to try to clear her friend Josh. She also has promised to help her friend with amnesia find out who he is and if he has any family. Highly recommend.

Sandie attends an art exhibit where she becomes embroiled in another mystery. The Deadly Art is an exciting novel with appealing characters and a clever plot. I have enjoyed this series.

Murder---amnesia---unfaithful room-mate's boyfriend---sullen brother-in-law---two hot men---and more! Book two of the series couldn't be more different from the previous book.Yet equally exciting and fun. Family loyalties haven't wavered either. Just a refreshingly different slant on Sandie James' life.
I loved the continuing characters that made the seamless connection between books even better. I was impressed with the sleuthing and Sandie's ability to keep things quiet until she had her plan
