Today I’m pleased to be one of the blogs taking part in the cover reveal for the first book in the Cape Mysteries series by Barbara Elle, Death in Vermilion.

Barbara Elle fell in love with books and writing at a young age, honing her writing as a copywriter at major publishers and as a freelance journalist. Growing up in Boston, her writing draws on people and places she remembers, setting the Cape Mysteries on Cape Cod, a place of memories.

The Blurb

A psychological thriller about murder among friends and enemies.

Who can you trust?

Leila Goodfriend is laying down the bones of a painting. When interrupted by Iris, the noisy, unlikeable artist in the studio upstairs, Leila is distracted and annoyed.

When she discovers the racket was actually Iris’ dead body hitting the floor, Leila becomes obsessed: Who murdered Iris?

The other Red Barn Cooperative artists — competitive, jealous and hypocritical — are prime suspects. They all hated Iris. “An artist owes his life to his art,” Iris said.

Iris was good for a laugh. But no one is laughing now.

In this gripping mystery, new author Barbara Elle paints a clever and twisted picture of women and sisters, whose lives are entwined by a brutal murder in a charming Cape Cod town.

Alibis fall apart. Plot twists multiply. And Leila comes to a dangerous conclusion.
