Fiction, Mystery

A ticket to Stockholm, land of Vicky's ancestors, seems like something too good to be true. Since the ticket was purchased by John Smythe, Vicky's larcenous lover, she knows it's too good to be true. But the drab Munich skies are too much for her and she accepts, starting a chain of events that leads to an island home, a site for art theft and potential murder.

The Vicky Bliss mysteries are highly entertaining, especially since the introduction of John. Peters is fond of introducing stubborn and infuriating characters and making them love interests. One suspects that more than anything else, she finds such romances highly entertaining, and I am forced to agree.
