I received this book as a freebie via Goodreads and was really looking forward to what looked like a different type of mystery novel. In many ways it didn't disappoint. The story evolves around a German girl who inherits two paintings from her grandfather with one catch – she has to travel to Spain to collect them; or as it turns out, to track them down.

I enjoyed this book. The plot is intricate so there are always new, unexpected surprises which keep you on the ball and reading on.

A shame because a good start with informative facts abouts parts of Spain & absorbing plot but then all was lost!
