Description

CeCe Prentice—environmentalist, peace-lover, artist—will stop at nothing to discover the truth behind her twin brother’s untimely death.

While she never saw eye to eye with her father—the ambitious director of a renowned genetics research center—CeCe Prentice always remained close to her brother, Teddy. When Teddy is found dead at the lab where he worked for their father, CeCe’s efforts to mourn the tragic loss are interrupted by several attempts on her own life.

CeCe is naturally drawn in to the investigation, teaming up with Detective Frank DeRosa, the officer assigned to protect her. Together, they begin looking into the circumstances surrounding Teddy’s death, only to discover the truth may be found closer to home than they think—in CeCe’s own paintings.

Praise:

"Deirdre Verne imbues CeCe with intelligence and humor, and the snappy repartee between characters is delightful."—MYSTERY SCENE

"[An] exciting series debut."—LIBRARY JOURNAL

"The amazing plot twist and memorable characters in Drawing Conclusions will leave you thinking about this book long after you've put it down. Deirdre Verne is a writer to watch!"—JESS LOUREY, AUTHOR OF THE MURDER-BY-MONTH MYSTERIES

"A mysterious murder, a gutsy heroine, a determined cop, and a villain you would not want to cross in a dark alley—everything you want in a mystery, it's all here. A fun read, right down to the eye-popping final twist."—MARY LOUISE KELLY, AUTHOR OF ANONYMOUS SOURCES
