Feint of Art audiobook cover art

I purchased this book because I have read and enjoyed other Juliet Blackwell cozy mystery series. Feint of Art is a strong start to a new series, and with art as the focal point it should attract new readers who enjoy art mysteries as well as loyal Blackwell readers. Juliet Blackwell and co-author Hailey Lind have crafted an interesting and enjoyable mystery that takes place where the art forgery and museum worlds intersect (or one could say collide). Xe Sands is the narrator once again for this series, which I appreciate. For me, she has always been a good fit for Blackwell's books, although I know some readers disagree. I have already purchased books 2 and 3 in the series and look forward to listening to them.

Inside Job audiobook cover art

Delightful light novella

Would you listen to Inside Job again? Why?

Yes, This story is well written, a delight after what seemed like listening to a string of sloppily written books. It is also very well read. The fact that it is just under 2 1/2 hours is perfect for a trip or other occasion when you don't want to commit to a long book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rob. I like that he is the professional skeptic who questions his own gullibility in this case.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It had me smiling throughout because it was so well writtern -- sly and humorous.

Any additional comments?

Don't expect a deep story, but if (like me) you enjoyed Connie Willis' To Say Nothing of the Dog then I think you will also enjoy this novella.
