You can never go wrong with Madeline Hunter. This is another exciting debut to a new series that continues her previous setting in regency art crime but with new set of characters – three brothers – and a spirited heroine.
Tasked to inquire into an art theft, Gareth finds himself crossing paths with Eva, a budding artist forced to resort to copying in an effort to survive penury, and raise her younger sister, following the mysterious death of her brother. What ensued is an absorbing tale of intrigue, betrayal, courage and belief in love restored that could only be wrought under the masterful story telling of Ms Hunter. Superb!
