This book may not be a laugh out loud book but it is a wonderful murder mystery with a nice cozy touch to it. It had a great ending too. I think anybody who loves a classic mystery will love this.

Reading the Murder, She Wrote books in order, starting with Gin & Daggers, A Palette for Murder is the seventh book and after a good previous novel, this one goes back to Donald Bains tired formula in the series. Jessica is vacationing in the Hamptons, with her publisher and his wife. The Buckley's have been involved in previous novels and they serve as always, as a way to get Jessica out of Cabot Cove. First off, not that Jessica can't have any hobbies, but suddenly a secret desire to paint, which leads to an artist's murder? A little contrived, to say the least. The mystery itself, follows the same course like most of the others in this series. Again, the author gives us too few characters, thus a limited range of suspects and then most of them are involved in the crime, in some way. Thus, I have stated it before and I'll state it again, I'm getting tired of the author's use of conspiracies in each of these novels. The series was a clever, if quirky show, with mini puzzles to solve. Bain's mysteries are written, so that the reader simply follows Jessica along as she learns new information and in the end, there is no mystery, no surprise. There are no clever clues left for the reader (and Jessica) to spot and solve for themselves. But still, an easy read, and always fun to see Jessica once again, but a poor crafted mystery. It's ashame, as this series deserves better than it gets sometimes.
