LEGAL ARTISTRY IS A WINNER IN EVERY WAY!
Legal Artistry ( Art Series #1) ;by Andrew Grey
reviewed by; Becky
Years ago, Dieter Krumpf’s grandmother died and left him everything, including a photo album containing pictures of the art collection she left behind when her family fled the Nazis. Now, Dieter is calling on the services of a lawyer, Gerald Young, to determine whether his family’s legacy might be returned to him.
Gerald doesn’t hold out much hope that the paintings will be returned, but Dieter’s earnestness speaks to him and he agrees to help. At first he concludes that while Dieter has a case, suing in Austria isn’t practical. But Gerald is a good lawyer, and as his feelings for Dieter develop, so does his determination to win the case. Together, Gerald and Dieter navigate research, hearings, and a dysfunctional family in the pursuit of fine art—and discover the art of love along the way.
I have been wanting to review an Andrew Grey book since we started this blog, but deciding which one is like picking a favorite kid! I finally decided to go with this book seeing as it is book 1 in the Art Stories series, one of my favorites. This book is simply magic, and Mr. Grey doesn't need spells and potions to create magic, he uses sheer talent! This book is a journey that two men take to restore a family heirloom, but they discover more than a painting, they discover a love like they have never known. The way the story ebbs and flows seamlessly makes you feel as you are there with Dieter and Gerald, traveling to far off places, battling for a prized possession and ultimately finding a complete and all encompassing love. Thank you Andrew Grey for a wonderful start to an epic series, though I expected no less!
