    A fast paced delightful amateur sleuth tale

    Annie Kincaid grew up knowing the people who populated the art underworld thanks to her grandfather, the expert forger Georges LeFleur. Annie is almost as good an artist and at seventeen was arrested for selling forgeries of French masters. The only reason she isn¿t doing prison time is there was no evidence and the French couldn¿t believe an American could do such work that even the experts were fooled.--------- At an open air art exhibit, Annie is the only one who knows that the sculpture of a man is really a dead body with his fingers chopped off. At the same time of her discovery, a Chagall painting is stolen and her friend Bryan is the number one suspect. She promises to find the painting and while there she is hired by the Hewitts to get back the sculpture Head and Torso taken by his creator Robert Pascal. She also agrees to help her landlord, the owner of a security firm, to restore a Picasso that has crayons drawn on it. When Michael, the notorious art thief comes back in her life, she suddenly receives death threats and is almost killed by someone who believes she has something they want.---------------- The protagonist in SHOOTING GALLERY is a vibrant and quirky character who tries so hard to stay on the right side of the law but when the people she cares about are in trouble she finds herself in shaky legal territory. The support cast is populated with eccentric characters who add a lot of humor to this fast paced delightful amateur sleuth tale. Readers will want more mysteries starring the incomparable Anne Kincaid----------- Harriet Klausner

    This is the second book in the Art Lover's Mystery by Hailey Lin

    This is the second book in the Art Lover's Mystery by Hailey Lind. This story opens with Annie Kincaid finding a body hanging in a tree a the Brock Museum during a sculptural exhibit. As it turns out, it is the body of the sculptor of the exhibit. While the police are there investigating, a group wandering through another exhibit becomes over wrought from Stendhal Syndrome, and faints. This additional commotion allows for a painting to be removed and stolen right off the wall. One of Annie's good friends, Bryan, was in this group and is being blamed by Agnes Brock as working with the thief. Annie, of course, doesn't want her friend to take the fall for this and decides to work to find the painting and return it to the museum. Additionally, another patron strikes up a conversation with Annie and upon finding out her art connections, asks her to assist in retrieving their sculpture from an artist who is doing some repair work on it, but whom has now refused to return it.

    In addition to the secondary characters that we met in the first book, Annie's mother makes an appearance in this book. She has come to town for the funeral of the sculptor who was hanged. Apparently Annie's parents were went to college with the dead sculptor, as well as the sculptor Annie is trying to convince to return the statue he is repairing. The hi jinx and floundering around that happened in the first book is once again present in this book. Annie reminds me greatly of Stephanie Plum, in her bungling and fumbling to solve the cases, that of course, become intertwined. 

    Each chapter is begun with a quote from Annie's infamous Grandfather, the world famous art forger, as he is doing publicity for his published novel that we were introduced to in the first book. I really enjoyed this variety of ways he makes art relevant to so many different and varied seemingly unrelated fields. We still don't have a solid love interest for Annie, and I like that the field is still wide open. Plus we are seeing more sides to some of the secondary characters and can't wait to find out more. I gave this book 4 stars on Goodreads.

    Screwball comedy mystery series

    Entertaining mystery that reads like a comedy. Several scenes had me laughing out loud. Annie may be a reformed art forger who can paint fakes of the Old Masters good enough to fool the experts, but in her current life as a faux finisher, she's Lucy & Ethel rolled into one. When it comes to hunting down the forger who has put her good friend Bryan in the hot seat with the cops, she's an accident-prone clutz.

    Not to worry, she has 2 hot men on opposite sides of the law ready to help her out of her jams. One, her hunky but staid landlord who isn't quite what he seems to be; the other, the cunning but charming art thief who has a different name every time they meet.

    Always in the background is her beloved grandfather, who taught her the art of forgery at an early age. His appearances are only through cryptic phone conversations and keep Annie guessing as to what the old forger is up to next.

    In Shooting Gallery, we also meet her mother, who has a secret of her own that gets both Annie and her mother in hot water.

    Shooting Gallery keeps you guessing until the end and teaches you a bit of art history as a bonus.

    Wonderful Book Two in Art Lover's Mystery Series

    I worked my way through the first book, Feint of Art, so quickly, I couldn't wait for book two. And it was well worth the wait. It was great to get reacquainted with a bunch of colorful characters. Annie and her friends have a funny way of finding trouble and then finding their way out. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the twists and turns, and meeting Annie's mom! Shooting Gallery is as much of a page turner as Feint of Art. I couldn't put it down trying to see where it would all end up. I am not very artistic, but after reading these books, I think I might just be able to try one of the art/decorating tips at the end of the books! I can't wait for BOOK THREE!
