Review: Counterfeits

For this review, I chose Counterfeits by Kris Bock, which is the first book I have read by this author.  I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Painter Jenny Kinley has spent the last decade struggling in the New York art world. Her grandmother’s sudden death brings her home to New Mexico, but inheriting the children’s art camp her grandmother ran is more of a burden than a gift. How can she give up her lifelong dreams of showing her work in galleries and museums?

Rob Caruso, the camp cook and all-around handyman, would be happy to run the camp with Jenny. Dare he even dream of that, when his past holds dark secrets that he can never share? When Jenny’s father reappears after a decade-long absence, only Rob knows where he’s been and what danger he’s brought with him.

Jenny and Rob face midnight break-ins and make desperate escapes, but the biggest danger may come from the secrets that don’t want to stay buried. In the end, they must decide whether their dreams will bring them together or force them apart.

I liked that this book was different from what I normally read.  Jenny inherited her grandmother's Children's art camp.  She has to decide if she wants to run the camp or go back to New York and continue as an artist.  What would you do if you were in her shoes?  Live the life that you had been or completely change your life?  I loved the way the camp and the grounds were described.  It made me what to be there.  It seemed so peaceful.

I loved the character of Jenny and her 2 best friends.  I knew Rob was hiding something, but I still liked his character.  This book had me glued to my ipad and did not want to put it down.  It kept me guessing who was behind the burglaries.   

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
