I wanted to read this book because there is an art forgery and I had recently watched a movie about something similar.
Cousins Coleman Greene runs the art magazine. Dinah run the print gallery, both in Greenwich Village, NY.
Coleman has a mystery going on with a magazine on the west coast always printing a week prior to her magazine the same articles and she asks others to help her solve who it could be.
Dinah has her own mystery also-how did the man who's now dead get his hands on the 'skating girl' and the next day it sold for mucho bucks.
Everything that is made, from clothes to shoes to food and hotels has a label, a designer label and the two of them know all the names. It gets to be a bit much at times as I'm just a country girl and can't be swayed by a label.
Love all the detailed descriptions and although there are many characters in the book it's easy to keep them straight.
The book also follows Rachel Ransomme who is overseas and is heavily into art as she's very well trained to spot a fraud.
Murders, places being bugged, forgeries and hidden funds are just a few things going on in this action packed book.
Grand finale is at the end where all the pieces come together and family from the past make an appearance.
Love that this will be part of a series of books using some of the same characters, can't wait to see what next they will uncover.

4 stars Restrike: Coleman and Dinah Greene Mystery No. 1 I
Restrike: Coleman and Dinah Greene Mystery No. 1
I would like to see if their will be no. 2 I would read it. I was trying to figure out who did what and I was kept guessing. Some of the ending I did not like but that has nothing to do with the story really.
I like Coleman and Dinah. They both worked hard from the time they were children and continue the work.
Coleman has her own art magazine. She is single and does not think she wants to get married ever. She sews and makes a lot of her own clothes. Someone is stealing story ideas from her magazine.
Dinah owns a print gallery and lives above it. Her husband Jonathon is rich and wants to control her. They have not been married long. Her gallery is in the wrong spot and she wants to change it.
Their is going to be a new museum opening in NYC about art prints. Heyward Bain is mega rich is opening it. He does not talk about his past. Where he got his money or anything about himself. He is very curious about Coleman.
Coleman wants to interview Heyward Bain for her magazine. She thinks he is handsome and would not mind dating him. She is also interested in Simon who is buying the prints for Heyward's museum. He is keeping secrets too.
A man who is selling the prints to be auctioned off is murdered right before the prints are bought. The police do not think it is related to art. Coleman does and wants to find out.
The crimes start to add up and threaten Coleman's life. Their are a lot of suspects. The police are not putting the cases together like Coleman and friends are gathering.
I did not put the book down till I had finished and it left me wanting to see what happens next in their lives.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it when finished by Netgally.
