A Painting to Die For
Book 3 Jenna Scali Mystery Series
Jenna’s quiet weekend turns upside down when her house is ransacked and a body is found with her name and number in its possession. Meanwhile her long-lost cousins show up with stories about international art theft dating back to World War II.
While Jenna questions the motives of her dead father in his connection to stolen art, the police find a second body with Jenna’s name in its possession and she becomes the primary link in two murder inquiries. Sidestepping the police and dodging the mob, she and her best friend, Quentin, embark on their own investigation to save themselves and Jenna’s cousins from untimely deaths.
Offset by the quiet university town where faculty and students mill about, minding their own business, Jenna is kidnapped and held at gunpoint while her double-crossing, lying cousins chase after the missing painting worth millions.
A Painting to Die For forms a web of deceit that leaves Jenna doubting everything she believes about her father and his Italian heritage.
Review – This is the third book I’ve read by Joan C. Curtis. While I loved the other two, I have to say that this one is my favorite. I’m always up for a good mystery and this one was certainly entertaining. I couldn’t put it down. Joan C. Curtis writes amazing characters with depth and has a nice tidy ending. I highly recommend this series!
You could probably get away with just reading this as a standalone but the entire series is fantastic!
I received a copy for my honest review, no other compensation was received.
