5.0 out of 5 stars
BySue Ann Bon February 21, 2018
Format: Kindle Edition
I’ll start by saying that this author – M.C.V. Egan – is a new author for me to read and I was definitely NOT disappointed with the story!!!
The story is about a rich and famous artist who is known for his sculptures. Bruce Jones, age 62, dies unexpectedly. Bruce was loved by all of his exes’ and his current wife (5 in all), his mistress and his seven children. Through his art, he has given each wife a different color of his choosing that best describes each women in his mind. Each chapter of the book tells part of the story through the eyes of one of the characters that he so loved. It wasn’t until the funeral that all the exes’ came together and ended up being friends. Especially when a new color was show during the slide show of his life.
The one question that was brought up after the funeral was – Was this a heart attack or was this murder??? I won’t tell you the answer because you really need to read the book and discover his life for yourself!!!
This was an amazing book and I love love loved it!

Death of a Sculptor in Hue, Shape and Color
Color coded love stories and revealing female anatomies lead to the murder of world renowned sculptor, Bruce Jones.
In life, the artist loved women, almost as much as women loved him. Adored for his art and colorful personality, Bruce is mourned by the world at large. The tale is launched with the multifaceted perspectives of four ex-wives, the current wife, and his new love interest and their children.
Mary , Bruce’s wealthy first love, is always in perfect pink; the color of love. Mother of Clair the famous actress and Aaron the corporate lawyer.
Leslie The Second’s color is yellow for her sunny nature as much as for her fears and insecurities. Her only son Bobby is vulnerable and lost. Mourning his father’s death, he finds himself.
Petra The Third, is outstanding in orange, representing not only her native Holland but also her love of the fruit. Cherished her freedom and had no children of her own.
Toni The Fourth is a vibrant passionate Italian red and part of the eventual glue that creates and solidifies this dysfunctional Jones family. Her teenage daughters Tina and Isa are as different as night and day.
Brooke The Fifth a gold-digger. Green, her color, reflects the color of money and envy. Her young son’s Kyle and Caleb are too young to understand why their world has been turned upside-down.
Mara, as blue as the ocean was the last woman to steal Bruce’s heart. Mother to newborn Baby Peter is the unexpected gift and surprise.
Bruce Jones’ eight children speak out, too. They are as distinctive as the women he loved, their mothers.
Loose ends are tied up by the insights of Sylvia, Aaron’s wife and a trusted keeper of secrets; Scott, the private investigator and family friend; Nona, the quintessential grandmother everyone loves but to whom few are truly related; and Detective Jim Miller who will not rest until he discovers Bruce Jones’ murderer.
