This is actually the 7th book in the Murder She Wrote series by Jessica Fletcher. I found A Palette for Murder at a used bookstore and didn't think I had read it before. If I had previously read it I didn't remember much of the plot so as a reread it wasn't an issue. This book finds Jessica on vacation in the Hamptons where her investigation engages her with many younger artistic people. It is refreshing to see her a bit baffled by the idiosyncracies and mannerisms of the younger generation. The book talks quite a bit about artwork and styles so those readers interested in art will find that engaging I would suspect. The mystery was well conceived and I really was surprised at the ending. We as readers definitely discover a different side to Jessica in this novel.
A Palette for Murder by Jessica Fletcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
An old book in the series that I didn’t read before or it’s been so long I forgot I read it. A great read set in the Hamptons as Jessica expands her artistic expression to the visual arts
The mystery was well constructed with lots of plot twists. Always fun to read from this series.
