From the national bestselling author of A Crime of Poison comes the second mystery starring the crafty and cantankerous Silver Six.
Leslee Stanton Nix-aka "Nixy"-thought moving to small-town Lilyvale, Arkansas, would be about as thrilling as watching paint dry. But keeping up with her retired Aunt Sherry and her troublemaking housemates-collectively known as the Silver Six-has proven to be as exciting as it is exasperating.
To kick off the grand opening of their craft shop, the Handcraft Emporium, Nixy and the Silver Six invite Doralee Gordon to teach a gourd painting class. Doralee's spirit gets squashed when her ex-husband crashes the class with his new fiance, but things really get messy when the bride-to-be later turns up dead. Now it's up to Nixy and the Silver Six to use their melons to find the killer-before someone else gets painted out of the picture...
Nancy Haddock is the national bestselling author of the Silver Six Crafting Mysteries Basket Case, Paint the Town Dead, and A Crime of Poison, as well as the paranormal novels La Vida Vampire, Last Vampire Standing, and Always the Vampire. A native Oklahoman and longtime resident of Texas with family roots in Arkansas, she now makes her home in the fascinating city of St. Augustine, Florida. A former speech pathologist and high school teacher, Nancy lives with her husband and a rescue dog named Baron in a little pink house on the beach with a fake flamingo in her front yard.
