A Dangerous Talent (Alix London #1) by Charlotte and Aaron Elkins

3 stars. This was really good. The setup is Alix London is the daughter of a very famous convicted art forger; she is trying to get on with her life, forget the past, etc etc. The problem is she is a scarily talented art type person herself so of course she has traded room & board for restoring some old paintings. She is approached by a rich rich rich, hilariously funny lady to authenticate a newly discovered painting by Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico. Mysterious things and murder ensue. There is, as usual, a totally dishy FBI agent so we get a decent romance along with the investigation. Is Alix following in her father’s footsteps as a fraud or is she on the right side of the law in figuring out what is going on? The plot moves right along, the scene setting is awesome. The characters are believable and act like you would expect them to-police stuff and art people do what you think they will do. The subplot of the dad was interesting and added to the overall story. I enjoyed it and will read the next in the series.
