Synopsis

Jenny O’Connor can hardly believe her luck when she’s hired to teach summer art classes in Italy. Whilst the prospect of sun, sightseeing and Italian food is hard to resist, Jenny’s far more interested in her soon-to-be boss, Max Castanien. She’s blamed him for a family tragedy for as long as she can remember and now she wants answers.

But as the summer draws on and she spends more time with Max, she starts to learn first hand that there’s a fine line between love and hate.

    I hadn’t quite caught onto the twist which was threading quite in plain sight most of the timeline whilst my focus was Jenny and Max! I knew there was something ‘off’ a bit about certain characters, but since they were as less revealling than Max, I chaulked it up to a surprise yet to be let out. However, Ms Harris certainly surprised me in the end! Wow. Now that was an interesting quirk to the puzzle!

    What made the ending so wicked beautiful is how Ms Harris knitted together the backstory into the foreground. It was the kind of story your uncertain who to root for even though you want to be inclined to pick the ready gentleman with the kind heart and eyes. You get to take this lovely journey with the characters and if you already trust the author’s hand at telling a realistically charged drama, you’re definitely in for a wicked good read! I am so very thankful this was the last novella I read over the holidays, because it’s encompassing new beginnings, forgiveness and a healing cleanse of the past. Quite brilliant topics to explore at the jump start of a New Year!

    This is my first Liz Harris book and She is an amazing author and I will be coming back for more of her titles. I what I loved about this book, was that no one was what they seemed. Jenny blamed Max for years and carried this huge weight of emotional baggage. She almost demonizing him until she actually met the man.

    I think luck had very little to do with Jenny’s new job; I felt like she spun a web and she waited for things to fall into place. There was definitely some amount of planning going on.

    Italy is described beautifully and the details are that of that of someone who loves and knows the region well. It was a very nice change of pace to read a book set somewhere so lovely. The other art student characters are just as interesting, as everyone had their own reasons to be there as well as Jenny.

    The one thing I didn’t like about this book was that it was too short. I didn’t want it to end. From the moment I picked it up I couldn’t put it down and it felt like it just flew by.

    The Art of deception is such an intriguing book with themes about revenge, hate, love and forgiveness. I highly recommend it as a fast paced quick read that wont let you down and you will remember for a long time after.
