5.0 von 5 Sternen Artfully Written! 19. August 2014
Von Michael Eaton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
To tell you the truth, this book appeared on my iPad doorstep one morning before its official release, and I don't know why. I'm glad it did, tho'.

The Art Whisperer is my first exposure to the writings of Charlotte and Aaron Elkins. It will not be my last. I am a sucker for light-hearted, well-plotted murder mysteries, and that is what this book is. It is the third book in their Alix London series. I enjoyed it sufficiently -- enthusiastically -- that I will have to return to the beginning and read the first two -- and then go on to their Lee Ofsted series.

In The Art Whisperer, Alix London -- expert art conservator and daughter of a notorious and unrepentant art forger -- has doubts about a huge Jackson Pollock work at a small, failing art museum in Palm Springs. I don't want to say too much about the actual plot of the book, but --of course -- all is not what it seems, and people especially are not what they pretend to be. Alix finds her life in jeopardy more than once, and the episodes are satisfyingly scary. The story kept me guessing, but if I had really tried I might have been able to figure out who the real bad guy/gal was. Might...

The characters are sometimes a bit papercutterish, but not annoyingly so. Alix herself has a range of skills that verge on the implausible, but -- again -- not far enough as to challenge possibility. There is romance in the form of Ted, the handsome but Alix-clueless FBI agent. The two interact in an entertaining and amusing way, finally finding a mutual and satisfying understanding for them and us at the end of the story.

I enjoyed The Art Whisperer and look forward to reading more about Alix and the other characters created by the Elkins'. Yes, I did get this book for free, but I'll be more than willing to shell out the $4.99 or whatever for the others. I myself might even develop an interest in art restoration. (Sure!)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Elkins Triumph 19. August 2014
Von Rowen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Alix London's back in another satisfying art mystery. Alix has taken on a conservator assignment to prepare paintings at a small but prestigious museum for auction when she comes under attack via nasty book reviews and a vicious blog. When she's physically attacked in her hotel room, matters escalate, and the machinations of her unknown enemy are just beginning. This series continues to mature, with delightful characters plus a good helping of learned information about the art world.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another good entry in an art based mystery series 23. August 2014
Von Reacher Fan 1909 - Veröffentlicht auf
Having read book 1 and liked it, book 2 and not liked it as much, I was a bit hesitant to buy book 3. Since I share these books, I always buy print and the binding and print quality is very good. So was the story.

Taking place in Palm Springs, yet another place I've vacationed (while I've never been on any yacht, I have been to the locales chosen for each story so far) and I think the Elkins captured the place - and those dangerous mountain roads - very well. I also thought that whole mountain road scene had a déjà vu quality to it having had something very similar in A Dangerous Talent. Otherwise, the story was well done, though I knew who the bad guys were earlier on.

Any fan of art or museums will enjoy these books and they are a welcome departure from the standard cozy with the too cute title and foolish shop owners playing detective. At least Alix sticks mostly to her art, not playing Miss Marple. To some extent they remind me of Jonathan Gash's Lovejoy series, but without his crooked turn of mind and off-beat humor.

As a character, Alix is likable, competent, observant, and hopeless with guys. Luckily, FBI Agent Ted Ellision is back and that story line is mostly resolved. I did enjoy the end and the gracious way Alix managed a 'find' with her old mentor.

Not a cozy, yet the Alix London series would be liked by many cozy lovers. Fans of Elkins Gideon Oliver would likely enjoy this series as well. It has the same kind of 'tutorial' bits about art and restoration work that made Oliver interesting in his field. It gets 4* because the bad guys were easy to guess. The motive was not.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Fun, quick read 27. August 2014
Von Carol - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
The Art Whisperer is my second Alix London mystery, although I think it would work fine as a stand-alone: recurring characters are introduced with enough background so you know who they are but not so much that it bogs down the story. Alix is doing some restoration work for a small museum in Palm Springs, but, of course, it can’t be that simple. The Pollock is probably a fake, someone’s trying to kill her, and the head curator at the museum is just a bit sleazy.

First, a disclaimer – I like art mysteries. The combo of art and the people who surround it, collectors, experts, forgers with murder, theft, mayhem tends to draw me in. Add a smart female amateur sleuth, very light bit of romance and I’m hooked.

The mystery this time around comes down to whose blacklist is Alix on and why? Between the smear campaign and the threat to her life, she’s obviously in somebody’s line of fire, but who. We’ve got a nice list of suspects, folks who work at the museum mostly, each with their own quirks and possible motives. And of course, it’s not surprise that I guessed wrong. The FBI Agent/love interest shows up near the end, but he doesn’t save the day. Actually he doesn’t do much for the plot itself, but I like him. Although I admit the scene at the end where they declare their feelings seemed a little cheesy and awkward.

This is one of those mysteries where there’s nothing really outstanding, but it’s a fun, and quick, read.

I have been looking forward to this new book for a long time. It arrived on my Kindle this week. I started reading it yesterday - and finished by 5:30 am this morning.

In other words, I could not put it down.
Again, I learned more about artists from different periods, more about ways to authenticate art.

And got a detailed tour of Palm Springs and environs, a review of the restaurants. Delicious!

Incidentally, I really enjoy the series' recurring characters. They are like welcome friends.
