Product Description: From the national bestselling author of Checked Out, Helen Hawthorne must pose as a painter to catch an artful killer.
The art world is a happening placeóbut a brush with death shouldn't be in the picture. Unfortunately, that's just what happens to Helen Hawthorne and her friend Margery. While touring gorgeous Bonnet House, a mansion turned museum, they note an up-and-coming artist in a painting class. When they later see her deadly end, Helen is hired to canvass the crime scene--undercover, of course.
Sketchy suspects lurk in the victim's past. Was the promising painter killed by her jealous husband? Her best friend? A rival using her artful wiles? With her husband, Phil, busy setting a trap for a gold thief, it's up to Helen to paint this killer into a corner.
