Abby Reed is a new reporter whose world is turned upside down when her mentor and friend Patrick McDonnell is murdered. She feels she must do something to honor him, so she decides, with permission from her boss, to finish his last story. This decision, she will soon learn, will get her into situation after painful situation.
Marcus Anderson is an amateur art historian and is also a paralegal to the DA. Marcus and Abby have a rocky start at first with misunderstandings and more. Finally, they get it together and start being friends. Will this friendship turn into love? Only the author knows this. What it does turn into though is a sincere caring for Abby and he turns out to be her knight in shining armor for sure.
As she works on Patrick's story she gets deep into art theft and tries to find out what is going on. With everything she learns, the people behind the scheme break into her home, her office, and bomb her car. All the while, Marcus is there to rescue her and support her.
This is a mystery you can't miss. I recommend it highly.
For those who hate sex scenes, there are none,
For those who hate bloody gore, there is none.
Abby is a kid, her lusting after her love interest is more high school crush than adult attraction. Her mystery man is sulky and immature but best buddies with cops.... It smacks of young adult immature behavior with an adult theme...I don't think you can have it both ways in writing an adult novel.
Abby recovers too quickly from her friend's death so to me doesn't ring authentic. The writing is adequate with no glaring logic or typing errors but the story could have been improved with a more mature character taking action to make the story move forward rather than a tentative giddy teen attitude falling into romance and a mess of art forgery and death.
The chacters were believeable! I learned about News Papers, and the Art world as well as the State of Florida!
Thank you for being a writer!

Gave the rating because it is a real page turner. The characters were very real for such a fast read. Loved the twists which kept me guessing. Needs a better proof reader.Published on May 11, 2013 by Aswaski
