The Fine Art of Deception: Undoing Time

The Fine Art of Deception: Undoing Time by Alyssa Richards

Art appraiser Adeline Montgomery just wants a normal life. One where she can ignore the vicious ghosts who follow her. One where she's free from her "gift" of touching an object and seeing the owner's deepest secrets. And one where she can fall in love without having all of the above get in the way.

But when tall, dark, and dangerous gallery owner Blake Greenwood enters her life, normal is the last thing she's feeling. The man has more secrets than the priceless art he sells, giving Adeline's quest for normal no chance. That, and he may just hold the key to uncovering the truth behind her father's unexplained disappearance.

Despite her paranormal gifts warning her to stay away, she feels an inexplicable, captivating fascination for him, something that goes deeper than attraction. There's something between them that's older than time, and if she can learn to give him her trust, it may just save her life.


3.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't the full bookApril 10, 2015
This review is from: The Fine Art of Deception: Undoing Time (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.*
The author came to me, asking for a review. So obviously, you're thinking you'll get the whole book. What I got, seems to be a sample. It's not the entire book.
I feel as if there was no climax and no wrapping up to end the story, obviously. At times, I felt that the way the characters spoke was off, forced, or maybe just 'too proper' instead of sounding real. From what I read, the story did pull me in. I found myself ensnared in the story. If I get the whole story, my review may raise, but as the sample, when being asked to review a book, it's hard to give a good rating when there's no closure to the story for me.
Other than the stilted conversations, the idea of this story is intriguing. We have two sisters who have a family history of "premonitions, mind reading, seeing ghosts and what not. I enjoyed that Adeline wanted to use her powers to verify art and find her missing father/grandfather. Again, I'd love to see how the author unraveled all of this. But for now, my review will stand at a 3 without the rest of the book.
