SYNOPSIS

When lovelorn Annie McDee stumbles across a dirty painting in a junk shop while looking for a present for an unsuitable man, she has no idea what she has discovered. Soon she finds herself drawn unwillingly into the tumultuous London art world, populated by exiled Russian oligarchs, avaricious Sheikas, desperate auctioneers and unscrupulous dealers, all scheming to get their hands on her painting – a lost eighteenth-century masterpiece called ‘The Improbability of Love’. Delving into the painting’s past, Annie will uncover not just an illustrious list of former owners, but some of the darkest secrets of European history – and in doing so she might just learn to open up to the possibility of falling in love again.

REVIEW

PERFECT FOR: Leisure reader, historically correct, light reading, romance, mystery

PLUS POINTS: Easy to read, chapters are short (although the book is quite thick), fun story

FAVOURITE PART: The backstory of each characters, the way Rothschild explain the details of paintings was enchanting. It makes my brain dancing in colour, now I wish someone would draw it 😦
