I totally loved Erica’s last series so I was very excited to read this one…she did not let me down and I loved that there was appearance of a character from the previous series.
I will say it was bit strange that our two main characters really didn’t have much interaction until after the half way point. But that didn’t take away from the story, it was just different then other books when the two characters have a lot of interaction early on.
I also found it interesting that we find out who stole the painting and I wondered how Erica would hold my attention, but that she did.
If you like historical books with mystery and romance I am sure you will enjoy this one. I can’t wait to read the next one.
A copy of this book was given to me. All opinions are my own.
