Overview

Trick of the Eye: A Novel by Jane Stanton Hitchcock

Another high-society thriller from New York Times bestselling author Jane Stanton Hitchcock, Trick of the Eye is a tale of art, intrigue, and murder in a world where evil tarnishes privilege and nothing is what it appears to be.
 
Trompe l’oeil artist Faith Cromwell is hired to paint the famed ballroom of an opulent Long Island estate, but her patron is obsessed with the long-unsolved murder of a daughter, and soon Faith begins to piece together the details of the grisly, shocking crime.
 
The deeper Faith delves into the house’s mystery, the more she realizes that she has inadvertently stepped into the starring role of a bizarre, and quite possibly fatal, charade.
 
Like Social Crimes and One Dangerous Lady, Trick of the Eye is another highly sophisticated and deeply compelling mystery from master writer Jane Stanton Hitchcock.

I enjoyed this book very much. It was not an edge of your seat thriller...just a well written mystery with interesting characters and a good story.

On the good side, this story did have some different twists and turns, the ending was a bit of a shock, but the whole thing was a little, I don't know, 'fishy'. I can't quite put my finger on it. I don't think I was really into the locations, and the characters were a a bit odd. Anyways, others might like the book better than I did. Maybe it just wasn't my thing?

Like another reviewer, I can't quite put my finger on it either. There's something 'off' with this book, but I still very much recommend it for the unexpected and really shocking end.

This book remids me of my series by p.b. ryan, the first book of which is called still life wirh murder. It is an amazing book with a great shicing twist at the end. Very much worth the read.

This was very different from anything I've read. It kept me guessing through-out. I loved the ending, and the characters. I especially loved the way one decision made can change your whole life. Should I be strong and move on from a relationship or try to make it work. Is life a series of choices, some working out better than others. Do we really have a destiny or is it made for us? I keep thinking about all the twists in this plot and how things could have changed drastically for our heroine.
