Synopsis: When Kate Mitchell decided to research the mysterious portrait in the student gallery, she had no idea how her life would change. She thought she knew what she wanted in life. She had a great boyfriend, a promising career, and a clear path.
How could one simple portrait change all that?
A photograph. A sculpture. A painting. One clue leads to another, and Kate learns that pieces of the past might leave unexpected marks on her own future, too.
And how, exactly, did she end up in an irritable sculptor’s studio?
One portrait may hold the answers, but learning its secrets will challenge everything Kate thought she knew about love, art, and life. A single picture can tell more than one story, and in the end, a young artist will discover that every real love story is a unique work of art.
Kate is a young woman who has everything in her life, a nice surfer boyfriend, a very interesting thesis about a renowned photographer whose work she loves about, and friends without whom she would be nothing. But everything changes when her boyfriend cheats on her and when her thesis on Reedcarries her farther than she would have thought. Mainly when one day her teacher and friend explains to her that to understand Reed, this fabulous photographer, she mustunderstand Sam Rhodes.But our heroine takesthis comment to heart and tries to understand who this woman is and to know everything about her life with Reed and their separation. This quest will make her meet new friends or people who knew Sam and Reed closely to trace their history. She will even meetlove at the same time.
I loved to follow Kate in her investigation. Shewill understand and learn everythingthere is to know in relation to Reed while learning more about herself and all the people around her. This is a life’s lesson that we can finds here. While following Kate in dailylife, we also follow the meeting and the life of Sam and Reed, ten years earlier, which allows us to better understand the characters and to see how they end up like that.
Javi was also a personthat I loved to discover. We think at first he is a surly hermit but he also has a more vulnerable side and I loved seeing hischange at the contact to Kate. Seeing both of them together was really nice as they are the perfect couple.
Elizabeth Hunter carried me aways with this new book, and I highly recommend it.
YAY, I’m so glad you’ve read it too, D.! and what a wonderful review. Javi… *sigh* was gorgeous, and so as the whole book!
Totally agree with you on that one!
I wanna be carried away now too 😀
Oh I don’t think I’ve read a book by her, but I think I’m going to have to change it. I don’t often read contemps either but this sounds like one I would enjoy. The characters sound fab!
I really enjoy this author’s books.
Oh wow. Sounds goooood! I’m not one for much contemporary romance either, but does have a sound to it. 🙂 Thank you!
The author’s name doesn’t ring any bells, but then I don’t read a lot of contemporary romance either. 🙂
I love her PNR series, a really good one! Glad to see you back Mirjam!
