Publisher's Summary

For Kate Mitchell, finishing her master's thesis on reclusive photographer Reed O'Connor was just another item to check off her list. She knew exactly what she was doing. Or did she? There's just one portrait that doesn't fit. One portrait... and the passion she sees behind it. Finding the story behind O'Connor's picture becomes Kate's obsession, and the people she meets will challenge everything she thought she knew about life, love, and inspiration. A single picture can tell more than one story. And in the end, Kate discovers that every real love story is a unique work of art.

Interesting story

I was very surprised by this unique story. It was well written, intelligent and well performed.

A masters student is doing her thesis on a well known photographer and finds a photo that captures her imagination and piques her curiosity. She finds out that her professor and friend and his wife are friends with the man. Some interesting tidbits on his life are exposed and she takes off on a journey of investigation of the photographer as well as one of self discovery.

This was a free read/listen for me as a kindle unlimited subscriber but it would definitely be a story I would purchase or use a credit on

Read/listen you won't be sorry

An interesting read

I liked reading about all of the creative, gifted characters. Some of the other reviewers complain that this work is too different than her Elemental Mysteries. I think it's unfair to expect a book about artists to be as action-packed as one about vampires. It stands alone, as I think every good book should. It was beautifully written and I really enjoyed listening to this piece.
