Blog Tour & Review: COLOR ME DEAD

Self Published (January 5, 2017)
241 Pages


Artist Gabby Wolfe has the ability to see not only the beauty of the living, but the despair of the dead. When she returns to her childhood home in Henry Park Colorado, she is forced to bring along her younger brother Mitch. He is on a “break” from college where he was majoring in wine, women and song. If that isn’t enough they also have Mitch’s rambunctious beagle Luigi along who prefers to spend his days wallowing in junk food. When Gabby draws the death of a young woman before it happens, she knows she must tell someone and risk a new job and her professional credibility. Will she reveal her secret in time to save the woman in the water or will it be too late?


Gabby has the opportunity to illustrate a children's book but visions of the death of a young woman on top of dealing with her brother and mother put a damper on her excitement. In the meantime, two possible suitors add to the complications. She can only hope that she has a vision of the killer but then she'd need to share these visions.  

The pace is steady and some of the characters are unique. It's not obvious who the killer is and even when Gabby figures it out, she doesn't reveal who she's drawn. If you like paranormal with your cozy mystery, you'll like this book.

FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in the hopes that I would post an honest review as part of this blog tour. This has not affected the content of my review in any way.

  1. Thanks for letting me come visit and for your wonderful review. You really clued in on Gabby's drive to control the visions and the two suitors. When writing the book, I thought about how a character would react running into the first person she ever kissed as a teenager. Grownup Gabby looked at things a little differently!
