Advance Praise for The Work of Art
“Matthews (The Pug Who Bit Napoleon; A Victorian Lady’s Guide to Fashion and Beauty) weaves suspense and mystery within an absorbing love story. Readers will be hard put to set this one down before the end. Highly recommended to historical romance and/or mystery buffs and especially animal lovers.” -Library Journal, starred review
“The author seamlessly combines a suspenseful tale and a soaring romance, the plot by turns sweetly moving and dramatically stirring.” -Kirkus Reviews
“A charming, beautifully written, character driven romance, with a dash of intrigue, I cannot recommend this more, it is utterly perfect.” -Chicks, Rogues and Scandals
“A sweet testament to the healing power of love, this story is perfection.” -Love at 1st Read
“A beautifully written and emotionally satisfying story of two people who discover that they are their best selves when together…A definite must read for romance lovers, and one of the best Mimi Matthews books I’ve read in ages!” -BookWyrm Reader
