    Globetrotting art recovery mystery

    Laurel Beacham's skills at art recovery involve more than attending gala events & gallery show openings; they also include scaling walls and zip ties. Forced to again work with Jack Hawkes, Laurel's hunt takes them from Florida to London to Florence and each location scenery is exquisite. Who can Laurel really trust? Is everyone who they appear to be, either good or bad? Though we've solved some of the issues, the elusive treasure and the mastermind behind the latest hunt remains an open investigation for book 3 in this series. I can hardly wait to read it!

    Retro-Classic Feel

    After reading, and sincerely enjoying, Counterfeit Conspiracies, I was eager to start Marked Masters. However, other commitments kept me from diving in right away. I found that a mixed blessing, mainly because it gave me time to really digest the first book, but also to know that I was going to need to set aside time to properly read this one. With the first book I got lucky; I had a nice chuck of uninterrupted time to really get into the book without any worrying about distractions. I didn't have the going into the second book right away. It took me a couple of tries, but I finally got a chance to really dive in and enjoy this book. We start shortly after the conclusion of events in book 1. It quickly becomes apparent that there is an overall series mystery, in addition to the one that is the focus of the book. And though the book maintained it's retro-classic feel, I really enjoyed the updated feminist power of our heroine saving not only herself, but the hero as well. Who says we need a man to save us? Two thumbs up for Girl Power! Although most cozies are written with a lighter tone, I did enjoy the more drama based feel for these books. Not that they weren't humorous; there were several spots that I couldn't help but giggle with evil glee at Laurel's shenanigans. It's just that the books had a more weighty feel, most probably aided by the international locations in the book. This was once again a 4 star read. Netgalley and Henery Press provided me with this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Second book in series!

    Marked Masters by Ritter Ames is the second book in A Bodies of Art Mystery series. Laurel Beacham is an art recovery expert. She recovers stolen artwork (statutes, paintings, jewelry). Laurel has earned a promotion is now the head of the London office at the Beacham Foundation. Her latest case links her with Jack Hawkes (from the first book). The two set off to prevent the heist of the decade (maybe the century). Come along for the ride and watch Laurel and Jack at work. I found Marked Masters to be too nonsensical for me. I read the book, but I did not enjoy it. Marked Masters is very similar to the first book (just a different case). Laurel and Jack run around, get chased and shot at, and are then victorious. Marked Masters is just not my type of book (this is definitely not a cozy mystery nor a suspense book). I wanted a mystery and I did not get it (not really). While Marked Masters is the second book in the series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone book (especially since the first novel is completely rehashed in Marked Masters). I give Marked Master 3 out of 5 stars. I just found the novel too fake for my tastes. I received a complimentary copy of Marked Masters from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review of the book.
