In Partner in Crime, an artist from the West Coast is dead, and small town sheriff Joanna Brady must investigate the case. When the Attorney General's office thinks she is not up to the task, they send detective J.P. Beaumont to assist in the case, setting up immediate friction between the characters. This is an entirely forgettable mystery. The storyline was solid enough. There was nothing terrible about it, but there was also nothing that stands out either. It's the type of novel that you will forget a year later. Without having read many other books involving Sheriff Brady, I can't comment on how this one compares to the others. It's an okay read, but I wouldn't go out of my way to read this novel.
