Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Hobbies | Mystery Cozy

It’s late March in Fairhope, Alabama, and artists from around the country are flocking to the bayside town’s Arts & Crafts Festival. The annual tradition has something for everyone, only this year, the main attraction is murder . . .
Cleo Mack’s life has been a whirlwind since she inadvertently became the executive director of Harbor Village, a retirement community bustling with energetic seniors. Juggling apartment sales, quirky residents, and a fast-moving romance is tricky business. But on-the-job stress develops a new meaning when Twinkle Thaw, a portrait artist known to ruffle a few feathers, arrives unannounced for the weekend’s festival and drops dead hours later—mysteriously poisoned . . .
Twinkle’s bizarre death doesn’t seem like an accident. Not with a sketchy newcomer slinking around town and a gallery of suspects who may have wanted her out of the picture for good. As Cleo brushes with the truth, she soon finds that solving the crime could mean connecting the dots between a decades-old art heist and an unpredictable killer who refuses to color inside the lines . . .

atmosphere. I love seeing the creativity.

Arts & Crafts Festivals are like eye candy to me. I always
find new ideas and something to buy usually made of fabric.
Seeing the goods displayed proudly and watching the craft
people at work are experiences I cherish.

I love seeing what people have made. I tend to find
something I have to have, or I come up with an idea for
something to make myself. There's always so much to see!

Arts and Crafts festivals open my eyes to see how many
talented artisans we have in our area. I love to see how
they turn ideas into beautiful creations. Beach themed items
are my favorite.
