I was hooked on this charming series with the first book, Feint of Art. The heroine, Annie Kincaid, pulls out all the stops when it comes to getting into trouble and she does it with a wry smile. The art world is accurately portrayed in detail throughout the series --- museum politics, conservation practices, art gallery practices, and forgery --- what fun! Plus, we get a great tour of San Francisco and its environs.

Arsenic and Old Paint book. At the end This is the fourth and presumably final book in the Art Lover’s Mystery series. The writing team of Hailey Lind, two sisters, has apparently disbanded. The only member of the duo seemingly still in the writing business is Juliet Blackwell, and she is actively involved in two other series. I make note of these facts because of the manner in which the novel ends. But before the book can end, it has to begin.

The Art Lover's series has an entertaining light touch, especially when either of Annie Kincaid's two romantic interests appear. Hailey Lind is the pseudonym of two sisters, one an artist in Oakland, California, the other a historian in Norfolk, Virginia. The former, Julie Goodson-Lawes, painted the cover image for the book and runs her own faux-finishing and design business in San Francisco.

Former art forger Annie Kincaid has reinvented her life and now operates a legitimate decorative painting business but memories are long in the art world. The ending felt rushed, but that was my only complaint with the book. Here with the blessing of the FBI Art Squad Annie uses her underworld connections to boost her new art investigation business where she’s partnered with her ex-art thief/love interest Michael X. At first it’s strictly business but she stumbles across a body in an exclusive Nob Hill men’s club. Then an insurance adjuster asks her to find a stolen - and forged - erotic painting.

Former art forger Annie Kincaid has been operating a legitimate decorative painting business for quite a while, but memories are long in the art world. Now, with the blessing of the FBI Art Squad, Annie's using her underworld connections to boost her new art investigation business, where she's partnered with none other than ex-art thief/ love interest Michael X. Johnson. At first it's strictly business, but when she stumbles across a body in an exclusive Nob Hill men's club, and an insurance adjuster asks and an insurance adjuster asks her to find a stolen (and forged) erotic painting, and then her Uncle Anton is attacked, Annie's on the trail of more than just art. This time, she's looking for justice. Annie is a strong woman protagonist. She has reinvented herself from a checkered past as an art forger to a legitimate businesswoman/artist. She moves easily between high and low social circles. as she makes the rounds of San Francisco and Bay Area locales, including tunnels beneath the pavements of Nob Hill and Chinatown; the homes and hideouts-even a downtown sex club-of the rich and famous; and the artists' studios South of Market. The Art Lover's series has an entertaining light touch, especially when either of Annie Kincaid's two romantic interests appear. But Arsenic and Old Paint also deals with serious social issues- some history of slave trading in Chinatown, and its connection with San Francisco powers-that-were; and the male exploitation of the female and immigrant powerless, an issue that continues to this day.

I love this series, and was not disappointed in the most recent adventures of Annie Kincaid and her family of friends. Most of the book is Annie solving several interwoven mysteries with help from her friends; but some of it concerns her attraction to two opposite, but equally appealing men. On the one hand, you have her partner the very charismatic and charming Michael, who is very good at abandoning Annie (at least once in every book) which is both humorous and annoying. On the other, you have Frank - her FBI connected landlord, good looking, (maybe over protective) always willing to rescue her no matter what mess she gets herself into; but possessing "history" which is more than Annie wants to deal with.....

I loved the entire book, and felt it was just the right blend of humor and intrigue. But I have to admit the ending left me wanting more resolution. I can see how it serves as an excellent lead in to the next book, but I am also reminded of the fact that it took two years for this book to come out, and I don't like waiting that long for the next installment. So let's hope the next book will not be as long of a wait. If you haven't read the other books in this series yet, then you have much to look forward too.

I was hooked on this charming series with the first book, Feint of Art. The heroine, Annie Kincaid, pulls out all the stops when it comes to getting into trouble and she does it with a wry smile. The art world is accurately portrayed in detail throughout the series ----- museum politics, conservation practices, art gallery practices, and forgery ----- what fun! Plus, we get a great tour of San Francisco and its environs. The characters are all well drawn, even those who only remain on the fringe. And the stories make sense, a feat not always accomplished by some mystery writers.

I'm eagerly looking forward to the next book.

I want more! This series was so much fun. Likeable characters and so much art information too. The faux finishing how-to's at the end of the book are great too. I hope some time in the future this series will be continued.

This is a terrific book and series, co-written by Juliet Blackwell. Frankly, I like this series much better than Blackwell's other, more "successful" ones. The protagonist is likable and funny. The love interests are charming. The mystery is good, with a little dose of adventure as an amateur sleuth tries to resolve it. I rarely give a five-star rating, but I just love this series.

Great series, wish their were more. Fun that the heroine is an ex art forger and knows all these art forgers and can recognize who did what forgery. but doesn't want them to get caught. Ending leaves you begging for more, but evidently not picked up. bummer.

A bright, but oh so human protagonist is Annie Kincaid. She's an artist by trade, and a former art forger. She is often called upon to verify the authenticity of various pieces of art. It is an exciting read and hard to put down. The author has an intimate knowledge of the San Francisco Bay area and it makes the book that more enjoyable for those of us living in the area.
The book has mystery and romance and many appealing characters to enjoy. Better than many best selling authors writing in the same genre.

Well written and well researched, Hailey Lind has again delivered an outstanding mystery. I love Annie and her adventures in the art (under)world. The two men in and out of her life provide nice romantic tension. Is this the last book in the series? The way it ended at a cliff hanger you would hope not. Hailey, please write more.

I thoroughly enjoyed yet another Hailey Lind book! Could she please whitewater! I love the subject matter. Being an artist I'm stunned with the subject!
