Police chief Katherine Sullivan has retired to New Mexico from her home state of Minnesota, but she returns north for a visit with her daughter, Lizzie, and teenage grandchildren, Cameron and Chloe. Soon, she finds herself immersed in the case of Stacey Jordan, who was murdered at the local Pierce estate. With her background, Katherine is the perfect person to investigate the crime for her daughter, Lizzie, who has been hired by the police's main suspect, wealthy Randolph Pierce. Will Katherine be able to help her daughter clear her client's name? The Fine Art of Murder is a delightful cozy debut featuring an interesting main character. I will definitely be seeking out the second book in the series when it's published.
