Marked Masters

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 (I really did not like 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 Masters 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.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my review.  I really do appreciate your time.  Have a great evening and Happy Reading!
