Unlucky in love (and most other aspects of her life), aspiring chef Annie McDee is shopping for a birthday present for her new crush when she spies a dusty painting in the corner of a London junk shop. Struck by its elegant (if somewhat grimy) beauty, she buys it...never imagining the life-changing adventure about to unfold! For Annie has unwittingly recovered The Improbability of Love, a long-lost Rococo masterpiece so coveted by art dealers, private collectors, and world-famous museums that they will pay any price - even commit murder - to possess it. A delightful caper lush with colorful characters (including one who may or may not be a former Nazi art thief), The Improbability of Love is by turns a romance, a mystery, a family saga, and a satirical send-up of the art world...all swirled together into one page-turning novel!
