Could there be an undiscovered trove of Georgia O'Keeffe paintings in upstate New York? Anne's White story explores the world of art forgeries in a small-town setting. Anne White was a winner of the Malice Domestic grant in 1999 and this was her first book. I did enjoy the details about upstate New York and about O'Keeffe herself. I was less persuaded that a grown woman would be such a ditz. I understand she has a different protagonist for the later Lake George mysteries so I may give them a loo ...more

Although the plot points were pretty good, the writing seemed awkward. I think trying to write from a first person point of view is difficult & I often felt myself annoyed with the narrator rather then on her side.

Anne White writes mysteries set in the Lake George and Glens Falls, NY, area. I enjoyed this book but wasn't able to finish it because it was due back at the library. I intend to pick it up again when I have time.

A short but interesting mystery. Caught my attention because of fictionalized account of Georgia O'Keefe and the "resurfacing" of her work.
