A Palette For Murder: An Aurora Anderson Mystery by Sybil Johnson

When Rory checks on one of her neighbors she sure doesn't expect to find her dead...

Henery Press and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published January 31st.

This is a cozy mystery with a bit romance for Rory.  Her girlfriend is always trying to set up her up on dates and she decides to accept this one.  He's a doctor who works for Doctors Without Borders and he's cute and personable.  She also likes the local detective and he's just recently single after breaking up with his girlfriend.  She really wasn't anxious to meet him again over another dead body.

There's discussion of it being a burglary gone bad, but Rory doesn't think so.  When she finds out a homeless man she's helped that is now in the hospital was seen there, she's also sure he didn't do it.  But why would he be visiting her neighbor?

Lots of people didn't like her neighbor so there were plenty of suspects.  As random things begin to tie together, the killer is identified.  Unfortunately, the killer was closer to Rory than she expected and she almost doesn't survive this adventure.  She does though and she has a new adventure in front of her.  She's going to go on a date with the detective!

There's plenty of action and a lot of mystery in this story to keep you reading. It's a good read.
