Book Review-The Most Majestic Crime of the Year: Missing Masterpiece: A Massanutten Tale -Judith Lucci

Monday, January 11, 2021

I have read about The Artzy Chicks before--mostly in compilations. I really did like the stories so when I saw this one being offered alone--I grabbed it. LauraLea is an artist who owns a gallery way up in the mountains near a resort. Lily is an author who also helps LauraLea with her artwork on occasion.

They has collaborated on a large mixed media creation which they called The Majestic Norway. It had been selected by a ship headed to Norway for auction aboard their ship. The women were getting an all expense paid cruise and were to give a lecture on how to mix media. To say they were happy would be putting it mildly!

They packed up the piece and had it shipped--then they took off.

But something happened-the artwork had been switched!! It took a bit of doing and knowing some influential people but there is a happy ending! Luckily LauraLea had not brought her gun with her!! You are not going to help laughing at the inept thieves as they try to steal the rest of the artwork!!

This is a well written book with lots of twists and turns and some laughs as well which I am sure you will enjoy.
