I believe in truth in advertising, hence the blog title, but I hope someone out there is as excited as I am today to say “It’s Here!” Preordered copies of Bronzed Betrayals hit e-readers around midnight last night. I’m assuming print copies have been mailed out too. This is the fifth book in the Bodies of Art Mysteries, and once I get enough coffee inside me we’re going to be doing some partying about this all day on My Facebook Author Page. So if you have a minute, join me over there for fun, trivia, giveaways, and all the kind of stuff that makes days like this one worthwhile 🙂
If you haven’t yet checked out Bronzed Betrayals, here’s what some of the early reviewers have said–
“Bronzed Betrayals is a sophisticated and intelligent contemporary suspense novel with a classic feel. The book is riveting from the first page; the combination of high-intensity action, intricate plotting, and witty characters held me enthralled throughout the book. A little lethal danger, a little romance, a little witty repartee, what more could we ask for? …Although there is connecting storyline for the series, each book has a self-contain plot, and Ritter Ames interweaves the backstory in such a way as not to confuse or distract from the current tale. While I think any reader would draw greater enjoyment from getting to know the characters as they are revealed through the series, I also believe that Bronzed Betrayals can be read as a standalone novel.” — Jeanie J, NetGalley reviewer
“I love the Bodies of Art Mystery Series by Ritter Ames and I always say the same thing: I love the action, I love the suspense, I love the “gadgets”, and I love Laurel and Jack…and Nico and Cassie, too. While there is a great mystery to solve in this story, I think the heart of it is really all about Laurel and her own, let’s call them demons. She spends time in her own head – trying to navigate all that has happened to her, when she was young, when she was a teen, and now that she works as a…Ms. Ames writes her as an “art world socialite representing the Beacham Foundation.” But oh, she is so much more…Whenever I read one of the stories in this series, I know that I will be carried away to whatever faraway place Laurel and Jack end up…the descriptions by Ms. Ames always blow me away because it truly feels like I’m right in the thick of things, in whatever country these two take their work, and I sometimes feel like I’m hanging from a ledge, just as Laurel would.” — Gale S, NetGalley reviewer
