Review: Painting of Sorrow

My rating: 3 Stars

Sarah Downing is currently restoring a painting, one that she is fairly certain is an original, She is more than distracted, however, as she can't keep her mind off the impending prison release of her ex-husband, Jimmy; he swore that he would one day kill her. Meanwhile, Sarah hopes to convince the painting’s owner, Simon Wolfe, to invest more funds into the restoration project to further the proof of its provenance.

Things begin to move swiftly as Jimmy has found her, although Sarah has been a part of the Witness Protection Program for over a decade. Meanwhile, Sarah discovers something shocking out about her bosses, and that is connected to her current job at hand. So she flees from Jimmy, all the while desperately trying to get the painting back into the hands of Simon. Sarah and Simon felt sparks from the beginning, but the element of danger was just too high to do anything about it.

As a reader, it was quite easy to see that for Sarah to get her life back, there could only be one outcome. Despite being a rather slow read, the mystery in which Sarah's past and present become tightly interwoven was quite intriguing.

Many thanks to BooksGoSocial and to NetGalley for this book to review.
