The Work of Art by Mimi Matthews Book Summary

"Suspense and mystery within an absorbing love story. Readers will be hard put to set this one down before the end." -Library Journal, STARRED review

Winner of the 2020 HOLT Medallion

An Uncommon Beauty…

Hidden away in rural Devonshire, Phyllida Satterthwaite has always been considered more odd than beautiful. But in London, her oddity has made her a sensation. Far worse, it's caught the eye of the sinister Duke of Moreland—a notorious art collector obsessed with acquiring one-of-a-kind treasures. To escape the duke's clutches, she's going to need a little help.

An Unlikely Hero…

Captain Arthur Heywood's days of heroism are long past. Grievously injured in the Peninsular War, he can no longer walk unaided, let alone shoot a pistol. What use can he possibly be to a damsel in distress? He has nothing left to offer except his good name.

Can a marriage of convenience save Philly from the vengeful duke? Or will life with Arthur put her—and her heart—in more danger than ever?

Wonderful historicalromance. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and will look for more books by this author!

A beautiful romance with no s*x scenes!. This is such a wholesome and romantic love story, it reminds me of The Prince of Midnight. A seemingly broken man who finds a woman who loves him completely and helps him heal. I wish I could find a strong, devoted man like Arthur. My only complaint is the ending was abrupt and I felt like there could have been more of a conclusion. One of a few books that I’d read again. Just beautiful.

The Work of Art. Loved this story line didn’t figure out till the end who the villain was. The romance was very sweet well thought out and I loved the dogs participation.

The work of art. I love this book very much from the beginning was very interesting engaging and can’t stop reading until the end.

The Work of Art. Well written with a very satisfying HEA.

Cliff Hanger. This book had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. However, it sort of left me on a cliff hanger at the end. It came to a sweet ending but I would’ve liked an epilogue. It seemed rushed at the end and after the initial pregnancy incident, the matter wasn’t even mentioned at the end of the book so I was sorely disappointed in that. I’d still reread this book however, and I’d recommend it to anyone who is willing to stay up till 3am to finish it. I had to put my device down multiple times because of my love for the main characters and the pure love they shared. Would definitely recommend.

A bit of a Jane Austin romance.. Regency era novel. A moody officer, returned from the war a cripple meets his match? Without telling the whole story, it has many interesting twists and turns your not expecting. Like the hero decides to let her choose what he thinks is her choice of a Duke for a husband but instead she is being sold. She has to beg him for help! Not expecting that!! After reading thousands of romances, this one had some witty moments! It was sweet and enjoyable. Ending was a bit rushed, could have been a little more informative.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. This was an amazing book! I am not one to just pick up a book and read, but with all the spare time at work I decided to give it a shot. This book was so good I never wanted to put it down reading almost 100 pages a day. I highly recommend this!

Sweet. I really liked this book

Fun read. Intense drama, interesting characters and a lovely protagonist

The Work Of Art. Beautiful story. It was truly interesting from beginning to end. Unexpected and Charming.

Super good. Read it all night

Warm. It’s like… the story you want with the simp broody boy. We got communication. We have mutual feelings. We have a white woman who would save a dog if it was in a crack house. 10/10

Didn’t want to put it down…. Truly enjoyed this engaging story of intrigue, mystery, and surprise. The ups and downs of real life and the question ‘Do good things happen to good people?’ Maybe, maybe not. Couldn’t put the book down until I found out!

This romance is a work of art. The Work of Art by Mimi Matthews is an incredible story. I fell in love with the characters from the start. Captain Arthur Heywood is a wounded warrior returned home from the war with Napoleon. He is a man with hidden inner pain as well as an injured leg. “He was much taller than the other gentlemen, with broad shoulders and a lean, athletic build that seemed at odds with his use of a cane. Whatever had happened to him in the war, he still had the proud, upright carriage of a soldier. His hair was jet black with the barest hint of gray at his temples. His suit of clothes was black as well; unnecessarily austere, as if he were in mourning. But it was his face that caught her notice most of all. It was solemn, almost to the point of harshness, and in it she had the distinct impression of pain.” Phyllida Satterthwaite is naturally drawn to hurting creatures. Once she meets Captain Heywood, she finds in him a true friend who is in need of her compassion. Phyllida is an uncommon beauty. She has dual colored eyes: one blue and the other amber. She is considered “The Work of Art” by members of the ton. But there is a sinister villain in the story that threatens to sweep away all of Phyllida’s happiness. I truly found myself captivated by this book. I couldn’t put it down. Matthews is an incredible writer. There are no sex scenes in this book - just some kissing. But the chemistry is very much there without it. I was gifted a copy of this work of art.

The Work of Art. This was a nice story. I loved the characters.

Wittily Linked. Philly's stay with her cousins meant she should have made a marriage bargain during the season, but her appearance is objectified to present her as unique Duchess material. Her country ways detest such possessive ideas and she tries to correct the situation.

Wonderful love story. Uplifting and a very happy read. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful book.

Elegant. Elegantly written and a good story. Romantic and unexpected.

Most enjoyable!. Beautifully written and an excellent story.

Great story. I could hardly put it down and lost some sleep over it.

Work of Art. Wonderful, intriguing and well written. Great author and this is first review I have written!
