I am so pleased to see two great new reviews of The Lover’s Portrait: An Art Mystery, both written by members of Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team.

Lizanne Lloyd writes: “The novel gives a detailed account of the large quantity of art that was stolen and how rightful ownership is carefully researched, which of necessity slows down the first part of the story, but there is also a compelling mystery which makes the rest of book a real page turner. Zelda is a determined young woman who stumbles into predicaments because of her desire to reveal the truth and the other characters also have convincing motives and characteristics. A great read.”

Olga Núñez Miret (a.k.a Olga Author Translates) writes: “A well-paced mystery that takes us back to a fascinating and tragic historical era. […] A good and solid book, an interesting intrigue that combines present and past, set in a wonderful Amsterdam and the art world, with likeable and intriguing characters,  but not heavy on the psychological aspects or too demanding.”

Many thanks to both of these lovely reviewers for choosing to read my art mystery. And of course to Rosie Amber for allowing my book to be reviewed by her fabulous team!
