Brush With Death: An Art Lover's Mysteryby Hailey Lind, Juliet Blackwell
Annie knows that art/i>
Since she went straight, Annie Kincaid’s been applying her genius for fine art forgery to her own faux finishing business in San Francisco. She hasn’t seen the inside of a jail cell since she was seventeen, although sometimes it takes all of her arts—fine or otherwise—to keep it that way…
Annie knows that art security can be inadequate, but it’s crazy to think that an Old Master painting could be hanging unguarded in the local columbarium where she’s doing restoration work. Still, when she gets a tip that the chapel’s copy of Raphael’s exquisite La Fornarina might be the real thing, Annie has to take a look. And when she runs into a certain sexy art thief on the premises, alarm bells go off in her head as well as her heart.
Tired of being an art world pariah, Annie hopes that if she can help return the masterpiece to Italy, she’ll finally be redeemed. But when murder enters the picture, Annie realizes that it won’t be so easy to put things at the cemetery to rest…
