Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago, Cosmo Bari vanished, taking with him his legendary masterpiece, Virgin in Pastel. Since that day, no one in the seaside art colony of Steeple Hill has heard from the eccentric painter. Surrounded by an extended family of Cosmo's colorful compatriots, mystery writer Kyle Bari believes he has come to terms with being abandoned by his famous father. Then his ex-lover, Adam MacKinnon, arrives with his new partner, the beautiful but poisonous Brett. Brett has an unerring instinct for other people's weak spots, and soon the quiet colony is seething with hostility and suspicion as Brett begins to hint that he knows what happened to the missing artist.

Summer Loving & Murder...

Okay, I'll admit it...I love anything Josh Landon writes. That being said, Murder in Pastel is his best. Buckle-up,'re in for one wild ride. And by the very last sentence, you'll be in tears. Adolescent crushes, murderous plots, scheming, a brilliant artist vanishes leaving behind an only child. Or did he? No one is what they seem in this quaint, yet deadly, artist's community. Two words: READ IT! Cordially, Barkley Prescott

Page turner. Kept me guessing.

This was a fantastic read/listen. Suspenseful and never a slow part. Kept me guessing.


I loved everything about this book. However, I felt extremely terrible for Brett. He had a terrible life and though he wasn't that great of a person, I still can't help but feel awful. I knew his death was necessary to move the plot along and open opportunity for romance between the two protagonists, but I wish there was more closure for him. It seemed that he was quickly forgotten and casted aside.
