Secrets can kill a relationship. But the secrets Holly and Theo keep from each other in the start of their relationship could mean the death of either of them. Fritz holds all the cards, and raises the stakes in this deadly, more adult conclusion of The Painter Series.
About the Author:
I'm a stay-at-home mom of three of the CRAZIEST boys ever. And I love them to bits. I'm also a wife to a wonderful man I met when I was 17. He went to a different High School than I did but we both worked at McDonald's. It was before texting and cell phones so we'd write notes at school and exchange them at work. We'd also talk to each other over the drive-thru headsets. Then he told me he had a picture he had drawn for art class long before he knew me that his cousin pointed out looked just like me. The picture went missing when we got married and moved into our first home together. This was kind of the inspiration for The Earth Painter.
I have a degree in Journalism and Marketing which I have never used because I've been home with my boys. Then one day my man sent me to the local book store for a day to myself. I picked up Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and my life changed. I remembered being 17. I remembered falling in love. But most of all I remembered ME. I'd become "Mommy" and forgotten all about Melissa, the girl who dreamed of being a writer, but suddenly I remembered and the writing started. And It hasn't stopped.
Melissa Turner Lee's Upcoming Events
When I finished reading book 1 in this series I cried and anxiously waited for book 2. When I finished reading book 2, I gave a happy, all-is-right-with-the-world sigh. I loved book 1, but book 2 was so much better.
While “The Man Painter” could probably be read alone, it will make much more sense if read following book 1, “The Earth Painter.” In “The Man Painter” Holly and Theo are reunited, but happily-ever-after doesn’t appear to be possible. Several roadblocks to their happiness pop up, including all those normal human issues like pride, fear, anger, and left-over childhood issues (at least for Holly).
Holly is also exposed to the ugly truth about her mother, which inadvertently frees her from a life-long need for love and acceptance from her mother.
