Fortune for Fools

Find out what’s hidden behind the famous painting, “The Kiss”, by Francesco Hayez.

You’ll be shocked!

Zeke bids on an antique collection and amongst the treasures is a unique copy of a famous painting by Francesco Hayez. When he takes it to Lavinia at the art gallery on Merchant Street in Salt Lake City, Utah, they find a map to buried gold coins hidden by the Delgado gang in 1846—just before the Mormons inhabited the Salt Lake Valley in 1847.

Read a treasure of a book—Fortune for Fools: A Merchant Street Mystery, Book 3!

Story-line: Risk-taker Zeke Abberley knows how to be bold when it comes to his antique shop on Merchant Street in Salt Lake City, Utah. He successfully bid on a collection of 1800s antiques in Nauvoo, Illinois that may contain a valuable Hayez painting. However, love is another matter. Afraid that all women are gold diggers, he's always injuring his dates, particularly Lavinia, who works at her father's art gallery.

Studious Lavinia Vega is tired of proving to Zeke that she has no ulterior motives. When he brings her a damaged painting to restore and authenticate, she discovers a hidden map behind the painting that leads to valuable buried coins.

Can Lavinia and her poodle, Vivete, convince Zeke that fortunes are for fools and love is everlasting?

Review: This book features some of my favourite things! Mystery, suspense, secrets, and a very lovable (but still in need of training) dog! – 5 Stars
