The Fine Art of Deception, Undoing Time, Book 1 by Alyssa Richards


With one touch, she can uncover secrets.
But his secrets might be more than she can handle.

Plagued with the burden of her “gift,” art appraiser, Adeline Montgomery craves a normal life. With one touch of an object, Addie knows the owner’s deepest and darkest secrets—which makes ordinary out of the question.

When the sexy and dangerous gallery owner, Blake Greenwood, enters her life, Addie can't resist the extraordinary pull she feels for him--a feeling she refuses to succumb to. But this mysterious man has more secrets than the priceless art he sells. Blake may even be more connected than she ever realized.

Ignoring the paranormal warnings to steer clear of Blake, Addie succumbs to her captivating fascination for him that goes beyond a sensual attraction. The connection between them feels older than time. Letting down her guard could cost her life—or save her heart. Only time will tell…

Addie has had it with men,dating and love. Her true love is art. Her job is authenticating art using her psychic abilities. lately though,she begins to have some powerful reoccurring dreams about a man named Jack,whom she has never met. Sometimes they are so strong she wonders if they are really just dreams. One day at work,she is introduced to a man.. a very sexy and captivating man named Blake. There is something very comfortable and familiar about him, but she vowed to stay away from men..including Blake. When she first meets him, Addie sees a shadow behind him, but as time goes on,it's just a ripple in the air,other times it's a "dark" ghost that is filled with rage and anger. Is this a warning to Addie? What is Blakes secret? This book has so many different dimensions in the characters and the storyline that it's almost like reading 2 stories at once ! It is so interesting and we'll written and is easy to follow. This is one story of paranormal gifts that you definitely don't want to miss as well as a story about fine art..and the art of deception !!! Perfectly titled !!

A psychic that sense the ghostly presence. It was a little confusing at first, because you couldn’t really tell what was going on. Was she psychically linked to a ghost? Or were the ghosts in her living room? What? I’ve read other psychic books before, which was why I was lured to this one, but this was particularly challenging for me. The story was complex and ambiguous. First of all, who is narrating this story? Shouldn’t that be clear from the start? I guess that was my biggest beef. You don’t know who’s who, what’s what, or where you are. It’s like the reader is just dropped in this hazy world of ghosts and business men. Yeah, ghosts and business men. Unfortunately, the further you proceed, the more confusing it gets. Also, in regards to the cover, I thought the book was called THE FINE ART OF DECEPTION, since it was large enough to be a focal point, right smack in the middle of the cover (again, this lent to more confusion.) But, instead the title was in a small font underneath—in other words, it was deemed less important. No, the title is the most important thing and should be showcased prominently on the cover. I value the whole mystery that this book was going for, but I just felt like, the whole time, I was battling for some kind of understanding.
