Drawn to Murder is a gripping murder mystery novella by Bob Seay. Gabriella Alegré believes she has found her calling in Boulder, Colorado, drawing caricature portraits and Conte crayon paintings of tourists on Pearl Street. But her blissful artistic endeavor takes a hit when one of her fellow street artists, a flute player named Pello Panagiotopoulos, is murdered. Turns out Pello used to be a famous classical flutist who abandoned a life of fame and money to pursue a quiet life as a busker. When Pello's best friend and caretaker, John, is mistakenly held as the prime suspect and taken into custody, Gabriella decides to put her keen observational skills into use and solve the case herself. With an incompetent lawyer handling John's defense, Gabriella is running out of time to catch the killer and free John.
If you're a fan of whodunnit murder mysteries, you will have an absolute blast reading Drawn to Murder. Author Bob Seay weaves a compelling yarn full of twists and turns that hook you in from the get-go and keep you guessing until the last few pages. The plot is entirely unpredictable, with multiple believable suspects who have realistic motives. You find yourself trying to figure out the mystery, only for Seay to pull the rug from under your feet repeatedly. The characters are colorful and brimming with personality. I especially loved the dynamic and friendship between Gabriella and Amara. Seay's witty dialogue and smooth prose make the narrative a breeze to go through. I thoroughly enjoyed Drawn to Murder and recommend it to anyone itching for a well-written murder mystery.
