Publisher's Summary

Only two seasons matter in Coho Bay, Alaska - cruise ship and winter. Caribou King, owner of The Broken Antler Gallery, is hip-deep in tourists when her old college pal Taylor shows up asking for refuge, saying she has no place else to go. Cara is cautious; Taylor was the wife of one of Alaska's most renowned artists, Jonathan Snow, who was mauled to death by a bear the previous year. Why would his widow want to return to the location of her tragic loss? Something about Taylor's story just doesn't ring true.
Of course, she may not be the only liar in town. Taylor's former father-in-law accuses her of killing his son in front of a diner full of people, except he may have had a stronger motive. A handsome boat captain seems to fancy both Cara and Taylor and can't make up his mind between them, or between lying and telling the truth. And the local constable mistrusts everyone, but may have a reason to be mistrusted himself. Will Cara help her old friend Taylor, or will doing so get her into a heap of trouble? When a headless body is discovered in the bay, Cara wonders just who she can trust in this tiny town.

Love this book!

What did you like most about The Deadly Art of Deception?

The red herring the author throw in. She kept taken us to who the murderer might be. Each time she surprised me and I would think no way it couldn't be!
Michelle Babb gave the story suspense, mystery and made the characters more 3D. I read the book as well as listened to the audio and I found the audio is a lot better. In the book I would get confused in who was saying what but when I listened to it I knew who was talking. The narrator gave each character there distinct personality.

I didn't like the main character to begin with because I found that she let people treat her more of a doormat but after about 50% of the story she changed due to certain circumstance in the book. I really liked her more after she stood up for herself.
The book has mystery, hint of romance, suspense and humor. This is an audio book that I listened to in one sitting.
I would recommend this book and this narrator. Looking forward to book two!
