Kill Them with Canvas

We rated this book:


Chloe and Izzie have found their niche with Paint with a View, and now they’re getting an opportunity to throw a paint party for Halloween. Keeping with the spirit, they have their guests create paintings of a local urban legend, but when the night ends, the sisters discover an unsettling painting that turns out to be an ominous foreshadowing. The painting seemingly comes to life when one of their guests is found dead, and evidence points at their aunt. The sisters work together to find the real culprit before their aunt takes the fall for a crime she didn’t commit.

Art is at the core of the mystery, with a painting delivering an ominous foreshadowing that creates a fun eeriness to the tone. The case takes a personal turn when their aunt is considered guilty, which adds to their motivation and what inspires them to once again become sleuths. The relationship between the sisters is the heart of the mystery, with their contrasting personalities and strong bond. They’re two different people, but they complement each other’s personalities well and make a duo that you’d want to investigate with. Their relationship gives some heart to the mystery, which helps to create a light tone for the story. Kill Them with Canvas delivers lighthearted sleuthing fun that is creative with a satisfying murder mystery, a love for art, and sisterhood.
