Murder with Artby Julie Christensen

In an art gallery in New York City, a wealthy banker is murdered. Manhattan's art scene is full of people who would have benefited from his death, but newly-published writer Ruby Neptune takes it personally when her best friend, a local artist, becomes the prime suspect. Still traumatized from the death of her neighbor a few months earlier, Ruby jeopardizes her tenuous recovery to investigate. As the incriminating evidence piles up, she realizes she's gotten in too deep, but it's too late to turn back. Ruby has no choice but to seek out the truth, even if it means drawing the attention of the killer onto herself, or someone she loves.

I loved this second installment in the Ruby Neptune series. I also highly recommend the first one, Murder Beyond Words. The character is bold and thoughtful. The writing is descriptive so that you feel as if you're in her shoes and it's tense and scary sometimes! And it's really fun to read about all the neighborhoods in NYC that she visits.
