The first book in the Annie Kinkaid series and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. Annie's character is just great. She's funny, fun and very likeable. I found myself laughing out loud at a few points over her inner musings as they are the type of things most women can relate to on some level.
The supporting characters are diverse and interesting. I loved everything about this book and highly recommend it.
A child prodigy at 10 after painting a perfect copy of Mona Lisa, Annie Kincaid learns a lesson when she paints another one at age 17!
Now she has a legit business doing faux finishing in San Francisco. But her talents are requested too often to identify fake pintings of the Masters, and she quickly gets embroiled in mysteries and murders!
This cozy mystery is quite different but excellent, too, and includes
light humor all through it as we follow Annie's antics and meet her friends, particularly when she meets a "fickle yet charming art thief."
