About the book:
There’s a killer in the picture . . .
Celeste Cabot has a flair for painting—and a touch of paranormal talent too. She’s just arrived to sell her artwork at a big craft fair in North Carolina, complete with rides, games, and deep-fried everything. But the sunny landscape takes on a darker hue when her Chihuahua, Van Gogh, leads her to the riverbank—and to a body that was definitely not part of her design.
With help from a handsome fellow artist, Celeste sets out to draw the brazen killer onto her canvas. She’ll need to balance the victim’s past, a suspected love triangle, and a long-ago accident—and also consult with a medium and a spirit—to try to paint a murderous fiend into a corner . . .
Includes tips and recipes!
Murder Can Confuse Your Chihuahua by Rose Pressey is the second book in the paranormal cozy Haunted Craft Fair Mysteries series. As with most cozy series each of the books in this series features it’s own mystery that will be fully solved within the book so each can be read as a standalone if choosing to do so.
Celeste Cabot is an artist who has bought herself a small travel trailer in which she and her dog spend most of their time traveling from craft fair to craft fair. This allows Celeste the ability to spend her days painting as she sits in her booth outside the trailer at the fairs actually trying to sell her work to customers.One day at a fair however Celeste has a customer return one of her paintings claiming it is haunted and makes mysterious things happen.
After investigating her paintings closer Celeste learns that there are hidden images within that she doesn’t purposely paint, weirder still somehow these paintings can summon ghosts. At the newest fair Celeste is attending Celeste decides to take a quick walk but when off by herself she finds the body of a woman that has been murdered which leads to another ghost coming out of her painting to help her solve the murder.
Being one that loves a quirky cozy the Haunted Craft Fair Mysteries series is another that is right up my alley. I love the touch of paranormal involved with Celeste having ghostly help in crime solving and the series also has all those other fun elements, laughs, cute critters and a interesting mystery with plenty of suspects. I do wish though we wouldn’t head towards a love triangle angle to this one but otherwise I’ll definitely be back for more.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
