Second, the rather wonderful author, book reviewer and blogger Leslie Wright of TicToc and BlogCritics reviewed The Botticelli Affair and had some of her usual insightful comments:
Slatton has done a great job of giving us characters with emotional flaws as well as those that show them as they are in their outward lives. The heat that shimmers between them has you hoping and wondering, what is going to happen. The chance and friendships that spring up are eternal, and the depravity is deadly. You are taken on a journey that gives you a vision of art through the ages, and the men and women responsible. The action is quick and the journey is delicious.
Ms. Wright emailed to say that the review had been picked up by The Seattle Post Intelligencer, a vibrant and distinctive online news forum.
