    Probably best Rarities title

    Some of the other Rarities titles are too "fey" for me (way too much emphasis on the psychic or druidic, and not enough on the contemporary). This title is one of my favorite Lowell books. I've read lots of reviews of it that point out it's pretty predictable (name me a Lowell book that isn't for the main plot points?) Others have objected to the information about plein air painting. I found the way she weaves the painting process into the story interesting and convincing. It made me care about the characters and got me tangled into the plot. I live (a long time ago) in the area she describes - if you've never been to Southern California, she captures it so well I can almost smell the sea again. Recommended for those who enjoy R-rated romantic thrillers. Not only a Rarities title, it also crosses over into the Donovan series.

    Began great, died to quickly

    This book was awesome, the only problem with it was the ending died off to quickly. I wanted a little more 'after the fact' story that just wasn't there. BUT the book was definetly worth reading, I loved it!

    suspense-laden tale

    In California, renowned artist Susa Donavon will paint a canvas in front of an audience. Her work will be auctioned as part of raising money for the Friends of Moreno County. Additionally Susa will appraise any works brought in by patrons of the arts with the money raised also donated to the Friends of Moreno County. <P>Art buyer and artist Lacey Quinn brings in paintings done by her late grandfather in the 1920s for Susa to evaluate. Susa feels that the works owned by Lacey are from highly regarded plein air artist Lewis Marten. Though she doubts it, Lacey, already interested in the life of her relative, cannot resist researching the darker portrayals of murder, but soon finds evidence that the homicides occurred and that history repeats itself. <P>Insight into the California art scene adds a taste of reality to a suspense-laden tale. The heroine is a delight as she seeks her place feeling like the outsider in her family especially when compared to her two siblings. The murder mystery is thirty plus years old with frozen tundra trails yet Lacey relatively easily solves them, which takes credibility away from a well written fun story that readers will still value. <P>Harriet Klausner
