    Delightful book

    Feint of Art is a delightful book and first of an interesting series. Annie Kincaid is an energetic protagonist who just toddles on the edge of illegal.

    In the first book of the Art Lover's Mystery series by Hailey Li

    In the first book of the Art Lover's Mystery series by Hailey Lind we are introduced to Annie Kincaid. Annie is the granddaughter of the infamous art forger George LeFleur. We find that she spent her young formative years growing up learning how to forge some of the greatest masterpieces of the Renaissance era until she ended up caught and spent her 17th birthday in a Parisian jail. Since that time she has tried to lead a life on the straight and narrow, earning a degree in art restoration and doing her best to overcome her grandfather's reputation. While working at the Brock Museum, her arrest history and background is made known and she is unceremoniously dismissed and basically black balled in the legitimate art world of San Francisco. But Annie finds her niche and opens True/Faux Studios where she specializes in Faux finishes. At the age of 31 she has a fairly successful career and works hard to keep it that way. 

    The book opens with Annie authenticating a Caravaggio for Ernest Pettigrew, her ex boyfriend and current curator of the Brock Museum. Ernest knows that Annie has an eye for forgeries and asks her opinion on the painting one night, well after closing of the museum. When Ernest doesn't show up at the coffee shop for the meeting he requested with Annie later that night, followed by all the emergency vehicles headed to the Brock, Annie becomes worried and goes to see what is going on. When she finds out that the security guard who had let her in and out of the museum is dead, Annie grows worried about Ernest and begins to look for him. 

    The secondary characters in this book are quite vivid and engaging. At one point in the book, Annie reflects that her friends are either artists or sociologists. The are great for parties, discussing political issues, or giving a shoulder to cry. She thinks that she doesn't have any truly practical friends, such as doctors, police officers or lawyers that could help with her investigation. Of course this means that when Annie is investigating, she doesn't really have any practical advice and watching her bumble from one incident to the next is quite entertaining. 

    Each chapter of this book is led with a quote from George LeFleur's pending manuscript, Reflections on a World Class Art Forger. Each piece gives some small foreshadowing of what will be happening in each chapter. The mystery was well written and led us through some quirky twists and turns throughout. I enjoyed this book and gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.

    Only for the art fans

    Silly, improbable. Only good for a fun read for those into the Art scene.
    Would not recommend for book clubs or serious mystery readers.
