Publisher's Summary

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a missing Monet painting is worth millions in cold hard cash....

Freelancer Zoe Hunter specializes in living in the moment and keeping her options open so she holds back when her ex reappears, wanting to reboot their relationship. Zoe’s not sure she can handle a second crash and burn in the love department, but that issue takes a backseat when one of her clients dies.

Zoe discovers the death is linked to a stolen Monet painting, and she’s being set up to take the fall for both the murder and the black-market art sale. To clear her name, Zoe plunges into the shadowy world of art theft, teaming up with a former goth girl hacker, a persistent reporter, and a retired FBI agent turned cruise ship enthusiast.

With the help of her ragtag crew and her sexy ex, Zoe’s hunt takes her from Paris to sun-drenched villas on the Mediterranean coast. As she finds her way through a maze of lies and deceit, Zoe discovers that staying alive is a fine art.

Very Entertaining Series

I really love the books by Sara Rosett . Especially the "English Manor Series" and "On The Run"
She has great plots and very good character development. Elizabeth Klett is a perfect narrator.
Looking forward to the new one Suspicious! I hope she never runs out of stories!

The Int'l Intrigue Continues...

The third book in the series starts with an almost fantastical incident that immediately insinuates Zoe in a twisted tangle of danger. This somewhat contrived beginning serves well to inform the alert reader that the jet-setting lifestyle that we know for Jack and Zoe must continue, and we are relieved that we could see a romantic denouement for them after all. Once the plot is airborne, we can sit back and enjoy the unfolding of framing games and emotions fraught with nerves and denial.

At the end of Deceptive, the reader will wonder about the next adventure for our protagonists. What else can Costa's ghost engineer for them?

Too much "relationship" and too little substance.

A creative detective story with a good plot in an interesting setting always beats a book full of constant, immature worries about a relationship.
