Paint Me a Murder, (Christian Cozy Mystery) (A Dressed for Death Mystery Book 3) begins approximately 2 years after A String of Murders (Christian Cozy Mystery) (A Dressed For Death Mystery Book 2).
Cici Wilde, owner of Cici’s Vintage Clothing in Dry Gulch, Oklahoma, is now married to Audie Howe, and is expecting their first child.
CiCi is made privy to a long-held secret just before another murder occurs in Dry Gulch. In addition, the artist commissioned to do the mural for the opening of Grace Gulch Center for the Arts has disappeared.
Cici is drawn into solving another mystery, despite her trepidation. As she gets closer to solving the mystery, her baby sister, Dina, becomes the second person to disappear in Dry Gulch. In addition, Cici begins receiving threats on her and her unborn baby’s lives.
Cici, overwhelmed by raging hormones, is near collapse. It doesn’t help, either, that her seemingly judgmental mother-in-law has decided to take up residence in her and Audie’s home until the baby is born. Cici feels as if she can do nothing right, and Audie’s over the top enthusiasm for his mother’s cooking sets Cici on edge.
Will she be able to solve the mystery in time to find her sister? Will she and her baby remain safe?
The third and final sequel in A Dressed for Death Mystery Series is equally hard to put down. Author Darlene Franklin composes a story so well that you can’t help but fall in love with her characters’ eccentricities and idiosyncrasies. Her ability to intertwine mystery and history together creates a fascinating tale.
I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you, Darlene Franklin.
