““I buy art,” the charming Michael O’Halloran told Emma Bishop at her art studio in Carmel, California. But was that all he did, Emma wondered when some of her priceless works went missing and Michael disappeared. When two government agents come looking for him, Bishop travels to Budapest to find O’Halloran to see if he has stolen more than her heart. A Canvas of Deceit is a fast-paced tale of grand theft and deception.” – Amazon
It did take me a moment to get into A Canvas of Deceit by Margaret Evans because we are dropped right into the short story. But very quickly I was invested in Emma and wanted to see what would happen to her and with her and Michael.
As always, Evans writes a very tight story with her grammar on point. And I thought I knew for sure who the bad guy was, but the way the story ended was a fun surprise.
