THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
It is October in Taylorsford, Virginia and the residents prepared for an art festival in the 2nd boo of the Blue Ridge Library series. Amy Webber and her assistant, Sunny are preparing the library to take part in the annual Heritage Festival which celebrates local history and arts and crafts. Sunny need to picked a pair of paintings that are being donated to the library by a well-known artist for sale. Amy and Richard go with Sunny to pick up the paintings. They find the artist has been stabbed to death by a pallet knife. They also find a hidden vault with a cache of paintings. The story keeps turning as efforts to find the killer and the original source of the paintings. Amy becomes a deputy so she can do online searches for the artwork. Richard needs to substitute in a dance recital. Aunt Lydia is concerned as her husband’s work is in question. Did he forge some masterpieces? Are the pictures stolen paintings or are forgeries? Amy and Richard’s romance continues as does Sunny with Sheriff Deputy Brad. The ending was satisfactory. I recommend this book and series.
