This week, I'm highlighting The Art of Betrayal by Connie Berry.
This is the third book in the Kate Hamilton series, set in England and featuring antiques. And here's how this particular book starts:
The fourth of May was one of those glorious spring days in England that almost convince you nothing evil could ever happen again.
And yet, this is a murder mystery, so you know that evil is just around the corner.
Not to mention a change in the weather. We find this exchange at 56% into the book:
"I'd forgotten how rainy it is in Suffolk," Lucy said, fingercombing her damp hair.
"Typical English summer." Vivian rubbed her nose with the back of her hand, leaving a smudge of flour. "Disheartening showers interrupted by gales of disappointment."
So, it's not the best tease, but there isn't a cool like to pull out from that point in the book. Trust me, this is a great book. It comes out on Tuesday, and I'll be here with a full review of it that day.
I hope you'll come back then. In the meantime, have a fabulous weekend.
