and I found myself trying to guess who done it early on I d say I was pretty certain who it was around 60% of finishing the book, but even though I was, I wasn t positive That is always refreshing because there is nothing I dislike than being certain of who killed who early on in a book.The story was fun to read, a mystery of two now famous paintings that disappeared with lots of possible culprits There was a time span involved but the author was able to lead the reader in such a way that I always new where I was Also, the author connected all the possible characters so it wasn t difficult to follow the story The characters were charming, easy to get to know and fun to spend some time with All in all I would recommend this book to others who enjoy a good mystery with great characters and a lovely setting.Now to the not so great part for me There are numerous typos and missing words in the advanced copy I read I am hoping that an editor can get the book into shape before publishing It didn t ruin the book for me but it certainly made it difficult to read as I find multiple typos distracting The other thing that annoyed me were some of the metaphors I get that they are a necessary part of writing and most of the time I enjoy them because they enhance a book It s quite possible just me but I found some of these to be corny and they seemed out of place For example, in noting that one man was better looking, successful, and better company than another The author says and as simple to grab as a free snack on a toothpick from the grocery store s Saturday samples Another example the trail is colder than an Eskimo s bare behind on a snowy day One and I ll quit With relief, Jessie realized she had already traversed the worst low spots, albeit with fishtails than you d find at Fisherman s Wharf in San Francisco I appreciate the author trying some new ideas but for me it just seemed too over the top Then again as I always try to remember it s just my opinion and others may find them cute or folksy or funny They just didn t do it for me.I received a copy of Death on Canvas through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review My thanks to CreateSpace
