An Exhibit of Madness by Kerry J Charles

Dr. Dulcinea (Dulcie) Chambers has a lot on her mind. She's just opened a new exhibit of Winslow Homer watercolors at the Maine Museum of Art where she's the chief curator. The exhibit will be complete when the museum's director, the urbane Joshua Harriman, buys the final piece at auction. But when Dulcie discovers a body where the painting should have been, she's one of the primary suspects. Portland Police Detective Nicholas Black is on the case but finds he is less than objective when it comes to the attractive Dr. Chambers.

As a native, Dulcie is firmly rooted in Maine but has risen to the top of the museum world quickly. She's confident in her work but not in her skills at a cocktail party. She'd rather be at home with a good glass of wine and a book, not to mention a hearty portion of chicken fried rice. Nick grew up in the socialite-filled and privileged world of Boston's elite, groomed for a career in law. He jumped ship, much to his family's horror, and chose the life of a police detective instead. He hasn't looked back and they won't forgive him.

Piecing together clues while continuing to run a museum is not easy for Dulcie. When an attempt is made on her life, Nick knows that the situation is dire. Yet he has little experience with the art world, and must rely on Dulcie’s knowledge and intuition. The missing painting must be the key, if only Dulcie and Nick could understand how.

Quite enjoyable! Though I figured out "whodunit" about 1/2-way through, the motive wasn't clear until the end. Good one! Very well done!!

A fun, quick read! This whodunit set in the coastal Maine city of Portland features a wealth of believable and interesting characters. With dialog and plenty of intrigue to move the story along at a fast pace. I really enjoyed this and am already on to the next one!
