Editorial Reviews

Review

--Winner of the 2020 HOLT Medallion--

"Matthews weaves suspense and mystery within an absorbing love story. Readers will be hard put to set this one down before the end. Highly recommended to historical romance and/or mystery buffs and especially animal lovers."
-Library Journal, STARRED review

"The author seamlessly combines a suspenseful tale and a soaring romance, the plot by turns sweetly moving and dramatically stirring...A thoughtfully executed tale that perceptively dramatizes the tension between the demands of love and commerce."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Mimi Matthews pens a thrilling novel of a young lady at the mercy of distant relations...a deliciously enchanting novel which was a delight to read."
-Readers' Favorite

"
The Work of Art is a book that keeps you guessing until the very last chapter...In its pages are romance, adventure, bravery, and humor...and my absolute favorite--the universal themes of courage, loss, and restoration. I highly recommend this enchanting and thought-provoking novel for your Summer 2019 to-read list." -Austenprose

"Truly a work of art...when it comes to this book, romance and suspense are a match made in heaven."
-Bookstr (Five of the Hottest Romance Novels this Side of the Web)

"If all Regency Romances were written as well as 'The Work of Art,' I would read them all...[Matthews] has a true gift for storytelling."
-The Herald-Dispatch

"I crave well written historical romances and this fit the bill perfectly. A fantastic story. Highly recommend!"
-Jane Porter, New York Times bestselling author
