    The Silver Six and Nixy are back in another murder mystery that hits a little too close to home. When Cornell Lewis, a hated former resident, returns to Lilyvale during the folk art festival the whole town goes up in arms. He claims to have turned over a new leaf but very few people are buying it. Someone seems especially put out, if his dead body is any indication.

    The Silver Six and Nixy are back in another murder mystery that hits a little too close to home. When Cornell Lewis, a hated former resident, returns to Lilyvale during the folk art festival the whole town goes up in arms. He claims to have turned over a new leaf but very few people are buying it. Someone seems especially put out, if his dead body is any indication. Unfortunately, a series of events leads Lilyvale's newest police detective to the the Silver Six's front door. Nixy knows that no matter what Cornell did or didn't do, her aunt and friends did not commit the murder. Now, in true Silver Six and Nixy fashion, it's time to investigate and find who really committed the horrendous act.

    Paint the Town Dead is the third book in the Silver Six Crafting Mysteries and another 5 star story. I love the unique crafting back drop and the town-wide folk art festival organized and by Nixy and crew. The murder mystery was well thought out and the path to figuring out who did it was executed well. I had a sneaking suspicion who the murderer was but it wasn't solidified for me until the appropriate time.

    Nixy does some typical clueless heroine things throughout the murder investigation but I did little more than shake my head at her. Nixy is a great character that has tenderness for Aunt Sherrie and the rest of the Silver Six and the author is able to convey that to the reader. Her interactions with Eric are sweet and loving and they are great together.

    I'm hooked on this series; it's fast paced and engaging. The author created a world and developed characters that are entertaining and realistic. I'm from a small town and everyone knew everything about everyone else. It's what small towns do best. The foundation for a spectacular cozy mystery series has been laid and I can't wait to read how the author builds it up!! I certainly hope that the author continues with the series. The Silver Six and their sleuthing is far from being over.

    I reviewed an ARC of A Crime of Poison.

    Dollycas’s Thoughts

    We arrive in Lilyvale, Arkansas, just in time for the Fall Folk Art Festival and Bake Sale and for Cornell Lewis’ return. The man left town several years ago and many were happy about his departure. Those same people are upset about his return especially when he stops by The Handcraft Emporium. He leaves after a little fracas with the Silver Six. When the man is later found dead in his car in what looks like a case of anaphylactic shock. With Detective Eric Shoar sidelined because of his close relationship with Nixy and the Silver Six, Detective Charleen Vogelmen takes over the case and she quickly zeros in on Maisie and Aster, and their bake sale cookies found in the victim’s car. Nixy with some assistance from Eleanor starts her own investigation keeping Eric in the loop hoping he’ll pass whatever she discovers on to Charleen. Maybe she can find other suspects for the detective to focus on and prevent her friends from baking in the big house.

    I have loved the Silver Six since we met them in the first book of this series, Basket Case. They are an interesting group brought all together under one roof for a variety of reasons. I wish I had half their energy. They are always on the go and when someone messes with one of them or two as in this story, look out, because, they will not take it lying down. They are a family and they all care about Nixy. The author has created a wonderful cast of characters. I would love to meet them in real life and maybe become one of the group.

    The plot was very interesting as we found how many people he was actually connected to in Lilyvale. Eleanor was a real asset as she and Nixy reached out to new people every day that could have the motive to kill the man. I enjoyed the process they took to narrow down the suspects and the way all of the Silver Six was involved in one way or another. I loved their meeting complete with a “murder board”. The story flowed so well and the mystery was nicely plotted The final reveal and the manner of poisoning was surprising. I was so happy because I had the person still on my own suspect list.

    Nancy Haddock has written a fun series, they have all been “perfect escapes” for me. I recommend starting at the beginning for maximum enjoyment but this book read well all its own too.

    I really love this series, the crafts, friendships, the small town feel and of course Nixy and the Silver Six!!!!!! This series always has a good myself and this edition is no exception and of course with two of their own on the hot seat, the Silver Six will not back down, can Nixy keep up and save the Silver Six from themselves or have they taken on more than they can handle!!!!!!!
