Actual Rating: 3.5 stars
Cozy Mystery | Paranormal Mystery
Murder Can Mess Up Your Masterpiece is the first book in a brand new series by Rose Pressy. Not only is this a cozy mystery but it’s also a paranormal mystery with ghosts! I have to admit, I was really excited about this aspect because it’s been ages since I read a paranormal book. That being said, I enjoyed this one! I love how the main character can summon ghosts through her paintings and the way they (or Elizabeth in this case) can help her solve a murder.
You may be wondering why I gave this one three stars rather than 4 or 5 and I have a few reasons. First, I found this book to be a tad slow. For the amount of time the craft fair was going on I would have thought I’d race through the book but that simply wasn’t the case. Secondly, the book was fairly predictable. I figured out “who-dun-it” very early on and wasn’t shocked when it was revealed. Finally, I wanted a tad more paranormal. I would have really enjoyed seeing some of her other paintings come to life just like Elizabeth’s did.
Overall though, this is a solid read and a good start to a brand-new series. I look forward to reading the next book and am hoping the pacing picks up!
