Publisher's Summary

Mysterious things happen in small towns.

When Danielle finally quits her boring accountant job and opens an antiques and stuff store, her life changes for the better. But soon, her happy life starts to spin out of control when the snobbish new owner of the couture mansion brings a seemingly worthless painting into Danielle’s shop. 

The ownership of the painting is questionable, and the town’s future is threatened by the plans of the ruthless, rich owner who wants to build a leather factory on the estate, too close to town. 

An unexpected visitor arrives, and he may possess the much-needed solution to everyone’s problems in this quaint little town.

Enjoy this cozy small-town mystery.

Great Cozy Story!

The Worthless Painting by Erika M Szabo is a very compelling short listen. I loved how the author added so many details that I could visualize with this book. The story pulled me in from the very beginning and I loved the twists that were in the book.I was really happy with the direction this book went and had not expected the ending. Kudos to the author for that great surprise!
Jessica Green did an admirable performance bringing the characters to life with her voice. I found she added the right emotions. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

what lies beneath

A not so worthless painting leads to uncovering more secrets and villains and a possible love interest found. A lot in a short story. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator was good.

good short story

It was a good short story. Lots of happy endings. I do feel like too much was thrown into this short. It should have been longer to have that much of a story.

Short but sweet.

Would've liked more depth of the characters. Bit too obvious. Sweet poor girl, rich bitch. Had promise though. Needs revisited and the paranormal aspect of the painting investigated.
