Add a beautiful young painter and a handsome vicar who's a duke's son, throw in a dash of murder, and a sprinkle of art forgery, a Trumpian faux populist character, and there you have it.
This was enjoyable with clever writing and likable characters, but I felt like I had to keep putting it down. Could be me, with everything going on. I am looking forward to Gemma's story.
Overall rating: 3.5/5.0 stars.

Blake starts a new job after thinking life is over as she knows it. I sometimes think it is this anger that has her pushing through to pay her bills as she begins her new adventure. She meets a girl at the office who is so jealous of her, it is kind of pathetic.
Silas is hot and gives her something to look at. Man candy if you will. It just does not seem to help the sheen that is all over this new job. It is not a good gloss, and it is taking its toll on Blake. What should she do?
I found this book to be funny at times. I know that many will think it is too funny and just die of laughter. I stopped laughing about two chapters in, since I found this character kind of pathetic. I had a hard time pushing myself to finish the story. Word to the wise - this book has language meant only for adult ears. I personally think the humor would have come across better without the extra vulgarity, but maybe that is just me. I give this one a 2/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
