Not only could I not put this book down, but it kept me up all night until the mystery of the missing painting was disclosed. There were enough red herriings to have me guessing wrongly, right and then wrong in every chapter.
Through it all, Chelsea Owens and Sam Eldridge kept the romantic sparks flying. The author's research into the art world and the real art heist upon which this story was based were intricately detailed and believable. This is my favorite kind of plot, when the author uses real history and then brings that story into the present with her own brand of insight, charm and intelligence. I highly recommend this novel for both romance and mystery book lovers.
It's suspected that there could be a link between the jewelry store and the art gallery theft, and it might be the next target, so Sam decides to visit an art
exhibit there. Running into Chelsea again, he admires her love and knowledge of art, even though he's lacking in those areas, and he can't deny his
attraction to her.
The case is complicated, causing suspicions to flit from one person to another, creating a rollercoaster ride for Chelsea's relationship with Sam, especially when she sneaks into a warehouse filled with possibly incriminating evidence. But will it still be there when the authorities arrive? Whom can she trust? Nothing is certain in this involved novel that keeps the reader guessing until the end.
The author's knowledge of art dealings is impressive, as she explains the channels each piece goes through before being sold, and the authentication necessary to determine that it's not a forgery.
If you're ready to delve into the art world with an excellent writer as your guide, pick up a copy of A Priceless Find.
The intelligent, outgoing woman interests him in a way no one has in a long time, but he has more pressing matters to attend to. There’s something unusual happening in Camden Falls, and too few leads to follow in his opinion. First a break-in at a jewelry store followed by a forgery at the art gallery. What is going on? And how are the two connected?
Sam and Chelsea aren’t the most perfect match on paper. She loves people, he prefers peace and quiet. She’s enthusiastic about art, his tastes run toward the simplistic. Most importantly, Chelsea has dreams Sam can’t give her.
But sometimes the heart doesn’t care about the hard facts, and that’s one of the things that makes A Priceless Find so enjoyable. That and the way Kate James keeps readers guessing as to who is behind the crimes while leading all on a merry chase—complete with a suspicious warehouse and ties to twenty-five-year-old unsolved art heist.
Another wonderful read from Kate James (and I hope to visit Camden Falls again in future books)
***I receive complimentary books for review from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including NetGalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
James always writes characters that are likable and situations that are gentle and sweet, even in the midst of theft and suspense. Sam is moving on from a tragic past, yet he's very stable, brave, and kind. I love how he works so hard to uncover the roots of the situation, even going as far as sacrificing his own desires. Chelsea is very dedicated to her career and hopes to advance, but she's a very nice girl and friendly to everyone. She doesn't suspect a soul when questioned, which shows how positively she thinks of those around her.
The word I'm going to use to describe this story overall is: gentle. The mystery is gentle, without any heart-pounding drama; the romance is gentle--sweet, but not overly dynamic chemistry and drama; the characters are gentle--the kind you want for neighbors. This is a perfect read to escape and enjoy your time spent in small town Camden Falls and it's exactly the kind of book that I was in the mood for.
Content: mild romance; very mild violence; mild language.
