Praise for The Work of Art

“Matthews (The Pug Who Bit NapoleonA 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

“What starts as mutual gratitude, hers for his rescue, his for her unfailing kindness, moves steadily to true devotion. Strongly recommended.” -Historical Novel Society

“A story as beautiful, atmospheric, and arresting as its haunting cover…In its pages are romance, adventure, bravery, and humor…and my absolute favorite—the universal themes of courage, loss, and restoration.” -Austenprose

“Truly a work of art…when it comes to this book, romance and suspense are a match made in heaven.” -Bookstr (Five of the Hottest Romance Novels this Side of the Web)

“If all Regency Romances were written as well as ‘The Work of Art,’ I would read them all…[Matthews] has a true gift for storytelling.” -The Herald-Dispatch
