The Accidental Art Thief Tour and Giveaway!

Accidental Art Thief
Joan Scheighardt
Contemporary Fiction

a quarter of a century forty-five-year-old Zinc has worked as a
caretaker for a wealthy old man, living in a small casita on his
ranch in New Mexico. She doesn't make much money, but she has the old
man, her dogs, and gorgeous views of the mountains. She is basically
a very content recluse who doesn't invest much time thinking about
what she might do if her circumstances change. So when the old man
dies suddenly, and his daughter all but throws her off the property,
Zinc is forced to reinvent herself—and quickly. With a touch of
magical realism and a collection of offbeat characters, The
Accidental Art Thief explores the thin line between life and death
and the universal forces that connect all things.

and love." ~ Magdelena Ball,, author of
Sublime Planet, Black Cow, and other titles.

fascinating, quirky characters thrust into a complex (and hilarious)
