Publisher's Summary

Geez, make a splash in the world of art forgery at the age of 17 and people can't stop bringing it up. Lesson learned: genuine art is priceless, and forgery gets you arrested. Now Annie puts her artistic talents to honest use as a faux finisher in San Francisco. But carving out a new reputation can be a creative challenge....
Modernism isn't Annie's thing, but even she is surprised to discover that the "sculpture" in a prestigious gallery's grisly new exhibition is an all-too-real corpse - the artist's.
Meanwhile, a Chagall painting is stolen from the Brock Museum, and Annie's old friend Bryan is accused of being in on the fix. To track down the missing Chagall, she'll need the dubious assistance of a certain sexy art thief. And if Michael - or whatever his real name may be - isn't distraction enough, Annie's mother shows up in town, acting strangely. Annie's got to solve these mysteries, and fast - because art is long, but life can be very, very short.

LOL

I did not think I would like this series because I knew nothing about the field of art but the laughs drew me in. I had to keep stopping throughout the ending, which is somewhat slapstick, because I was laughing so hard.
