Book Review-Counterfeit Conspiracies (A Bodies of Art Mystery Book 1)-Ritter Ames

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Can Laurel Beacham trust this man who keeps popping up everywhere? That is the question for this very strong and independent female who plays a kind of Robin Hood. She retrieves stolen artwork and gets it back to the original owners or the museums-where ever it belongs. She is used to working alone and is not very trusting of men in general--Then her ex-lover goes missing. Now she has to retrieve an art artifact and find her ex--and that guy keeps popping up and saving her from people who are trying to kill her!!

This book has lots of twists and turns, a few laughs in-between, some pretty tense moments and is definitely worth the read!

About the Book: (from Amazon)


Laurel Beacham may have been born with a silver spoon in her mouth, but she has long since lost it digging herself out of trouble. Her father gambled and womanized his way through the family fortune before skiing off an Alp, leaving her with more tarnish than trust fund. Quick wits and connections have gained her a reputation as one of the world’s premier art recovery experts. The police may catch the thief, but she reclaims the missing masterpieces.

The latest assignment, however, may be her undoing. Using every ounce of luck and larceny she possesses, Laurel must locate a priceless art icon and rescue a co-worker (and ex-lover) from a master criminal, all the while matching wits with a charming new nemesis. Unfortunately, he seems to know where the bodies are buried—and she prefers hers isn’t next.

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Ritter Ames is the USA Today Bestselling author of the Organized Mysteries series and the Bodies of Art Mysteries series. When she's not writing or brainstorming new mysteries Ritter is usually trying to get her favorite yellow lab to stay out of the pond, or keep her grouchy black cat from trying to give the dog away on Freecycle. Ritter would love to live on a boat and write from far flung locations around the globe, but the dog would constantly have to be fished from the water, and her husband and cat would just complain endlessly about the dog's smell, so staying on land seems to be the only good option to keep her sanity and not get sidetracked from writing.

Ritter tries to blog regularly at and subscribe there to get the latest news about upcoming releases, and inside scoops on her characters and series. She uses her Pinterest boards at to capture great places and ideas she wants to use in both series. Follow her blog and boards to learn more about Ritter and her upcoming books.
