I was happy to be asked to have a stop on the blog tour for this book. I was sent a copy of the book for free from Emma over at Damp Pebbles Book Tours, and was happy to read and review.
The story is told from 2 different points of view, on one hand there is James and his wife Imani, then there is Bruce and his wife Davorka. It’s set in Philadelphia where Bruce and Davorka lived, but now rent their gorgeous house out to James and Imani, while they have retired to the Florida Keys.
But something brings Bruce and Davorka back to Philadelphia for a visit, and they decide they are entitled to stay in their rented out property, even with tenants living there!! Gah Bruce bugged me!! He was so condescending and annoying! I didn’t mind Davorka as much though, but even she was a little irritating. But to me this is a sign of a good writer, I’ve always said if someone can write a character and you end up disliking them, it’s obviously good writing.
The story focuses a lot more on people than art, which isnt’ what I expected, but the undertone of art is always there in the background. James is the art dealer, and we learn a few things about it throughout. I like Imani, she was my favourite character.
I hope you manage to grab a copy and read it soon! Thanks for stopping by!
