it was amazing
bookshelves: cozy-mystery
Read in August, 2007

This one is a little bit more mystery-oriented than the previous books in the series, especially the last one (which was almost exclusively character-building). The addition of a baby luckily didn't over-power the story, and the mystery is actually a pretty good one this time. Two paintings by a deceased artist, Andrew McInnis, show up for sale, and Isabel is determined to investigate into whether or not they are forgeries.

Definitely fun if you enjoy the characters, and I was very happy to see more of a mystery to balance things out.
