Teresa Trent wrote this book and did a fine job of it. It was smooth sailing all the way through with great descriptions, believable characters, conversations, and several threads besides the murder running through it. It was a good read with a interesting plot, and super writing. It was also the first book I have ever read by Trent. I will probably read others by her in the future based on the strength of this books alone.
I received a fee copy of this book from the author, but was not asked for a review. I decided to voluntarily review and this is my honest review. Again, it was well crafted and well written. I recommend this to any reader who likes mystery with a touch of paranormal. It does not contain graphic sex, violence, or language. It was well edited, too. What's not to like? Give it a try!
Gabby has been hired by children's author Clarence Bradford to create illustrations for his Adventure Kids children's books. Gabby and younger brother Mitch leave Denver to return to their childhood home in Henry Park, Colorado, for the illustration project. Gabby was having visions of a young woman floating in water, and after arriving back in Henry Park, the amount of visions were increasing. When local house cleaner Amelia Jones disappears and is later found dead in Lake Henry, Gabby's brother Mitch becomes a suspect, and Gabby is determined to clear Mitch's name and find the real killer.
Rich in detail and vivid descriptions, the story takes place in the small mountain town of Henry Park, Colorado. This captivating and fast-paced whodunit tale has enough quirky characters, witty humor, drama, a growing list of suspects, and intriguing twists and turns that will keep you engaged and guessing. You can't help but get caught up in the drama and mystery that ensues as Gabby relies on her precognitive gift to solve the murder while trying not to be the next victim. Gabby's story unfolds with a wonderful balance of comedy, drama, suspense, and intriguing twists and turns that easily kept me guessing, and left me wanting more.
Color Me Dead is an entertaining cozy murder mystery that will engage you to join Gabby in solving an intriguing murder mystery.
I thought the characters were very well-rounded and surprisingly complex for this being only the first book in the series. Often times, when the book is the first in a new series, the author leaves some background out to release in the other volumes and the characters end up somewhat flat and two-dimensional. These characters, however, fully came to life in my head. I'm certainly looking forward to learning more about them in the next book(s) in the series. I love all the side characters too, not just the main characters. Those add so much life to the book and the story. I had absolutely NO idea who the killer was until it was revealed and I love that in a mystery.
The setting descriptions were "just right" for me. There was enough detail that I could easily imagine the scene and yet I didn't feel like the level of description was overwhelming and boring. Also, the setting sounds absolutely beautiful. I love living here in Michigan, but Henry Park, Colorado sounds like a beautiful place to live.
The plot line moved along at a pretty steady pace. As I said above, I had absolutely NO idea of who the killer was until the author revealed it. I tend to lose interest in a book if I know "who done it" early in the story line, so I was happy to be surprised.
I highly recommend this book to those who like cozy mysteries. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series to see where Gabby and Mitch lead us!
** I received a free ecopy of this book from the author. All opinions and conclusions are my own. **
Then, Stuff happened.
I got sucked in. I could not put it down. I was reading it everywhere. Any chance I could get. I wanted to know what was going to happen next.
And, I needed to know 'who done it '.
This author has an amazing style, one I don't see much of in today's publishing world. I applaud her; and I can't wait to read more of her work.
