I really enjoyed this book, although it started slowly for me. Ms. Riley weaves a good tale, and her characters are believable. I've spent a good bit of time in the south of France and Paris (for which I'm thankful!), and she depicts both locations accurately, in my opinion. She also does an interesting job of alluding to the convoluted inheritance issues in most of Europe, as well as exploring the art and auction world.
I will read more of her work.
