A Brush with Murder is Gail Langer Karwoski's first book in The Watercolor Mystery series. Friends Jane, Grace and Donna have travelled to the Horses and Gardens Retreat in South Carolina to participate in a painting retreat "en plein air'. After arriving, they proceed to go for a walk and come across a horse that is dead in a reflecting pool. As other incidents occur to people associated with the retreat, the three friends become interested in trying to figure out why the incidents are happening and who is involved.
The author has done a good job of with the creation of her characters and storyline. As this is set at a retreat where people from different areas are attending, it is not necessary to provide a complete backstory for all involved but the author has given enough information on each character's history to enable the reader to understand the connections within the storyline. As the story unfolds and more incidents occur, the author provides twists that lead the reader down a pathway of certain discovery just to find yet another twist which ultimately leads to a surprising but well written final revelation that is based on some of the foundational motives of all-time great mysteries.
I received a free copy of this book from LibraryThing and Black Rose Writing and am leaving this review voluntarily. ( )

I received this book to review for LibraryThing.
Three friends arrive at a hotel called "Gardens and Horses" to attend master classes with a well known artist. The hotel also has a successful stable for race horses about which I knew nothing until I read this book. The friends decide to go for a walk before the classes start only to have the shocking experience of finding a dead horse in a pool.This is just the beginning and attempted murder and murder follow which of course are solved by the police with the assistance of the 3 friends. I enjoyed the unusual setting for a mystery and the advice about painting. I think it was a good first book for this author and I look forward to her next one. ( )

Jane and her friends are looking forward to their watercolor classes at the Gardens and Horses Resort. When they find a dead horse in a pool, the week turns into one of mystery and murder. Jane's notes help solve the murder in the end. I enjoyed the descriptions of the gardens and the watercolor techniques. Although interesting, I thought the discussion of the bonsai collection was a little distracting. I look forward to the next book in the series. ( )

A Brush with Murder: A Watercolor Mystery is the tale of three (then four) middle-aged friends who embark on a painting retreat at a picturesque resort. What starts out as a week of relaxation and creativity quickly becomes sinister, when the women discover a dead horse in a reflecting pool.

Other deaths follow and everyone at the retreat is suspect. Jane Roland and her friends are determined to discover "Who done it?" Will they be able to find the killer before another painter perishes?

The first in a series of cozy mysteries featuring Jane and her Georgian friends, this book is an easy read on a warm summer's day. ( )

A Brush with Murder by Gail Langer Karwoski has three women from Georgia heading to a painting retreat at the luxurious Gardens and Horses Resort. After checking in, the ladies decide to explore the grounds. They look in the reflecting pool to see a dead thoroughbred. Their plein air watercolor retreat begins the next day. One of the men from the stables agrees to give them a tour at the end of the day. The ladies arrive at the stables to find the man dead in a horse trough. Jane Roland believes the two cases are connected. She takes the class roster and begins keeping detailed notes about each person. When one of their fellow classmates turns up missing and is later found in the lake, Jane feels her observations could help catch the culprit. A Brush with Murder is the debut of A Watercolor Mysteries. The author provides a Class List at the beginning of the book (a list of all the characters). There are a number of characters so it can be difficult to keep them all straight. The author is a detailed descriptive writer. She likes to tell you what each person looks like (hair coloring, demeaner, clothing) as well as descriptions of the gardens, artwork, food, etc. This type of detail does slow down the pacing of the story. The book moves at a leisurely pace as the characters enjoy the watercolor class, tour the grounds, eat their meals, and socialize. The mystery is not at the forefront of the story. I wish it had been more prominent (with Jane searching for clues). The death of the horse was disturbing, and it happened in the first chapter. The details gave Jane and her friends nightmares as well as me. There are several suspects, but one individual stands out. I struggled to finish A Brush with Murder. The pacing is so slow plus (I am sorry) it was boring. There was no action or lively activity. I did find some details to be off (when you find yourself saying that they never mentioned this or when did this happen you know something is off or left out). A Brush with Murder is more cozy than mystery. I liked that the main characters were older (in their 60s). It is nice that they are close friends, so they know each other’s quirks and habits. One of my favorite characters was Maggie, a fifteen-year-old with a domineering grandmother. Maggie is a talented artist who loves horses. A Brush with Murder is a lighthearted tale with plein air painting, gorgeous gardens, a retreat romance, suspicious passings, health happenings, essential notes, and a curious watercolorist. ( )
