I read this blind. What I mean is that I didn't read the blurb or any reviews and I've never read a book by Smith. It's written from the first person point of view and normally this only bothers me in so much as I don't get enough information about other characters. However, here it bothered me because Rebecca Bard, whose view we're following, is not a fantastically likeable character. From the outside I imagine she's a sleekly put together, uptight, diligent, perfectionist. In other words, an i ...more
It definitely has good moments if you want an easy read and I liked some of it. I also particularly like that it didn't shy too far away from making the main character, at times, cold and aloof and unlikeable. Unfortunately, both the setting and the attitudes of the main character often felt flat. Like someone was writing an aspirational novel about what it would be like to have that success, instead of a real place and real people. It wasn't believable, and it made the trappings surrounding the ...more
Middle of the Road

I've read several excellent books by Sybil Smith (i.e. Changes), but this book was fairly middle-of-the-road. It was solid but nothing special. It also needs a good proof reading.

Curating a Masterpiece is the first book I have read by Sybil Smith and I must say it was a really interesting read. This book highlights the creation of a relationship between an employee and their boss within the art world.

Rebecca and River work together at the art gallery Minnessak, Rebecca as curator and River as her assistant. It is evident that there is a chemistry between them from the outset.
