The Ocean Painting Society invites you to join the painting wave…

It’s June in the quiet Los Angeles County city of Vista Beach, the place computer programmer and tole-painting enthusiast Aurora (Rory) Anderson calls home. Decorative painters are flocking to the newly built Akaw hotel to attend the Ocean Painting Society’s inaugural convention.

During the week-long event, Rory plans on shopping the trade show floor, working in her mother’s booth, taking classes and connecting with other decorative painting fans. She doesn’t expect to witness her childhood friend collapse in class and die. When the police find no evidence of foul play, Rory embarks on her own investigation. Can she brush aside the lies to uncover the truth and bring the killer to justice?


This is the second Aurora (Rory) Anderson mysteries, but the first one that I have read.

And I really enjoyed it, so much so that I’m going to get the first book ‘Fatal Brushstroke’ in the coming weeks!

The author has created a wonderful set of characters, that I would like to read more about.  Well plotted and written.  I will be putting Sybil Johnson’s Aurora Anderson’s mysteries onto my reading wishlist.
