The Drawing Game (A Sketch in Crime Mystery)
Release Date – December 25, 2016
Number of Pages 275
A lover of all things green, CeCe Prentice is not impressed when a fully-sustainable development, Green Acres, pops up next to her family’s homestead. It’s not so much the ridiculous price tag of the million dollar homes built entirely from re-usable materials and powered by the sun, but rather the new neighbors who think they can simply buy a green lifestyle.
To make matters worse, one homeowner turns out to be CeCe’s high school nemesis, Phoebe Purcell, a hair-tossing vamp who tried to break up CeCe and her long-time boyfriend, Charlie.
Already disillusioned by the so-called eco-friendly development, CeCe’s family home is threatened when a series of power-outages at Green Acres kicks off a rash of home invasions. When neighbors start showing up dead, the mood at Green Acres turns south. But when Charlie, CeCe’s on-again, off-again love interest is implicated in the murders, CeCe springs into action when she discovers the only clue – a portrait she painted years ago.
This is the third book in the series and I would recommend reading the first two books before reading this one. There all great books and you won’t be disappointed.
I really loved reading this book. It’s a great mystery. Had me on my toes and wanting to read more. I had a hard time putting this book down. It was just that good. I give it 5 stars.
The characters were very well developed in this story The mystery in this story has twists and turns. A very well written story that will keep you wanting more.
Recommend to mystery lovers. You will not be disappointed.
