From the Back Cover:

?Fans of cozy mysteries and well-seasoned sleuths will hope that this debut is the first of a long series.”
--Booklist

"This entertaining debut...will please cozy readers hungry for more mysteries in the style of Steve Forman’s 'Boca Knight' series."
--Library Journal

"Engaging and well written...tension and development within the story...make this book hard to put down."
--San Francisco Book Review starred review

"The author doesn't allow you time to be bored. New things are forever happening. The ending will amaze you."
--Night Owl Reviews

?The Fine Art of Murder is a true delight! ...Katherine is a smart, intriguing new heroine, full of compassion and good humor, but also hard-nosed enough to follow the twists and turns of a complex murder investigation. Writing with a light touch, Barnes gives us an engaging new mystery series. Pour yourself a cup of coffee and settle in for a great read.”
--Ellen Hart, award-winning author of the Jane Lawless series

?A very nuanced mystery that pulls the reader into the daily life of former Chief of Police Katherine Sullivan. Detail by detail, Emily Barnes builds the tension and ultimately leads the reader to the satisfying conclusion.”
--Carolyn Haines, USA Today bestselling author of the Sarah Book Delaney mystery series

"A retired police chief with an artistic bent uses all her skills when murder interrupts her return to her hometown. Appealing, genuine, engaging."
--Carolyn Hart, author of Ghost to the Rescue

"Not many grandmas can cook, dispense good advice--and solve crimes. But retired cop Kate Sullivan can and she joins Jessica Fletcher as a sleuth of a certain age who proves some skills never get old. When Kate returns to her hometown in Minnesota she's thrust into a murder investigation involving one of the town's most prominent citizens--and her own daughter. In The Fine Art of Murder, Emily Barnes has created a likeable, no-nonsense character who can juggle friends, family and felons.
--Rosemary Harris, author of Pushing Up Daisies
