Title: Counterfeit Conspiracies
Author: Ritter Ames
Review: Laurel Bachman grew up in wealth and society until her grandfather died and her father gambled away the family fortune. Now Laurel is working her contacts in wealth social circles as a Premier art recovery expert for museums and families around the world. Her current assignment pits her against Jack Hawkes who is her equal and pops into Laurels life when she least expects.
The author Ames Ritter takes you on a fast paced adventure ride though the world of art without losing the reader along the way. The author creates her own American Laura Croft and James bond- but she made them likeable and relatable - but with a twist. The book takes you on car chases, shooting, great locations around the world all in the hopes of finding a missing friend and lost artifact. I read the book three times enjoying each time and loving the fact I couldn't find spelling errors in my Kindle addition.
If you like the old school James bond mixed with a better written Laura Croft I think you are in for a real treat.
The is no sex in the book and hardly any language if any.
Thanks so to Heidi for this review.

Synopsis: Laurel Beacham grew up in wealth and society—until her grandfather died and her father gambled away the family fortune. Now with more pedigree than trust fund, she is the premier art recovery expert for museums that need to stay one step ahead of international thieves. Her latest assignment pits her against a mystery man, Jack Hawkes, who is not only her equal with blue bloods, but also seems to know where all the bodies are buried. Suddenly Laurel is racing against time to find a priceless art object before the enemy does, locate a missing art world compatriot with crucial information, and decide whether or not she wants to disentangle herself from this new male nemesis, Jack, who seems to know too much about her and her business.
Author Details: Ritter is an award-winning author who writes the Body of Art mystery series and the Organized Mystery series, both published by Gemma Halliday Publishing. While in the past Ritter has published nonfiction books and biographies under a different name, she now focuses most of her time and writing energies on globe trotting the world via her keyboard to create memorable characters and fascinating fiction novels for readers. In this great new endeavor, her cat muse remains faithfully by her side—only voicing displeasure when the food bowl sits empty due to Ritter focusing more on writing than on kibble.
