***WINNER, 2016 Bookseller's Best Award for Romantic Suspense***
  
A 2016 Daphne Du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense Finalist
 
Alexandra Northrop, a master of disguise and a brilliant art appraiser, risks everything to help Henry, an Oxford professor and an English earl, locate a priceless painting.  
  
She's on the run... Brilliant art appraiser Alex Northrop's ex used stolen art to fund his nefarious activities. Now he wants her dead. But it isn't just herself she's worried about - if he discovers who she really is, he'll kill her family. 
 
Professor Henry Chilton is shocked to find a beautiful stranger passed out in his bed, and even more so when she reveals a priceless painting is a forgery - the painting he'd planned to use to fund a woman's shelter. She's mysterious and frightened, and he is determined to discover why. 
 
Alex's knowledge of art is undeniable--just as Henry's attraction to her is irresistible. But in order to help him recover the real painting, Alex isn't just risking exposure...she's risking her life.

Untrue Colors starts off with a bang with our protagonist escaping from a moving vehicle. At first we have no idea about Alex’s mysterious past and who she is running away from when she shows up at an Earl’s home. Details about Alex’s art appraisal skills come to light when she identifies his prized painting as a fake.

The story has everything for the reader—from a strong female protagonist, romance with Henry, the handsome member of the British aristocracy, the glamour of the European art world, a violent and spiteful ex-partner and some spies.
The story is action packed and moves a good pace ! I look forward to reading more of Veronica Forand’s writing.

HASH(0x9d6c30b4) out of 5 stars Intrigue, espionage, and love. March 10 2015
By Kate Forest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you like a sit on the edge of your seat story, with a hot romance woven through it, then this is your book. Alex, an art appraiser, is running from her art-thief, violent ex-boyfriend. She’s a kickass, take no prisoners woman and an art expert. How cool is that? Henry, the Oxford professor she hooks up with, isn’t your typical hero either. He’s sexy and brilliant, and has enough of a past to give him the skills to go up against the criminal mastermind. And together, the sparks fly, fizzle away with laughter, and then re-ignite.

Henry’s sexy half-brother, Simon, is the real spy. But the college professor holds his own when things get dicey. Alex proves herself tenacious and loyal, even when running from her past.

There was enough tension in this story that I had to read it through the spaces between my fingers, but not so much that I had to sleep with a baseball bat under my bed.

HASH(0x9d6c3300) out of 5 stars perfect blend of suspense and romance for me March 11 2015

 Untrue Colors, Veronica Forand
Genre:  Mystery and thrillers, Romance
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
My first read by Veronica and what a read it is. I really enjoyed it. I enjoy a suspense novel that’s not too heavy, and this with the romance angle added was perfect for me.
Alex – wow – what’s she’s been through and yet she’s tough, still fighting and trying to stay alive. It must have been really hard for her, and poor Matt, how that must hurt her conscience, and its not her fault at all, she’s not to blame for her awful ex.
So, escaping from Luc once again by the skin of her teeth she ends up accepting some help from Henry. She thinks he’s a simple Professor, and Simon just his half brother – and they are, but they are also much much more. Henry is also an Earl, with a castle no less, but that’s not all he is either. Simon is suspicious of Alex, why is she on the run, and who from and what for – he wants to protect his brother and he can see already how Henry is drawn to her.
Henry needs help tracing a stolen painting, and after finding out why, Alex agrees to help him. Its for a cause dear to them both. It brings them into the murky and dangerous world of her ex though, where stolen arts are traded and the secret arms market reigns. Death and murder are everyday part of life in these underworld transactions. Its a great read, really sets a scene that feels genuine, and I loved the characters of Alex, Henry and Simon. They each had their own special qualities ( and talents) that shaped what happened. There are times when I really feared for what would happen. The suspense was perfect for me, letting me follow along with the story, taking wild guesses at what might happen ( and getting them wrong!). It’s perfectly paced, letting events flow very naturally and wasn’t one of those where everything is crammed into two days...but spread over a few weeks. The ending is climatic and the finale just so much what I wanted, and felt very satisfying.
.
Stars: five, a great story that for me was a great mix of mystery, suspense and romance.

HASH(0x9d6c3540) out of 5 stars Not For Me March 10 2015
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In Untrue Colors, you have a woman named Alex (and around 10 aliases) who is on the run from her art-stealing boyfriend who wants to put a bullet in her. She goes from country to country trying to outrun this sadistic, virginity-stealing con-artist. Alex is an expert in art and can spot a forgery at 40 paces. She keeps her nose out of the art world ... at least until she meets the Earl and he needs some help with a ... task.

So ... I'm still a bit unsure how I feel about this one. It was just ... okay. I think one of my major problems was with Alex. She has been brutally abused. Sexually abused. And recently. This isn't something that happened years ago that she has been dealing with for a long time ... it's still fresh. But she throws herself at this dude after just having said that she can't do a physical relationship. It was very contradictory, just a total back and forth between being a damaged/chaste girl to someone who seems to be willing to whore herself out. Now sure, this could be part of her character ... her being so abused by the previous relationship that she mistakes sexual advances/action as affection. But that isn't how the book read ... it didn't insinuate that this was how Alex was dealing. It came off as strange.

Untrue Colors was interesting at first. And then it started to drag. Especially the ending. Good Lord. It was almost painful with how hard it was to keep reading. The excitement that I had for the beginning of the book just didn't last into the ending. Things started to get long-winded and I just didn't enjoy it. And the fight scenes. Oh, the fight scenes. Those also didn't seem realistic. I'm a big lover of military/spy books. Those are just filled to the brim with fights and violence. At one point in this one, someone caught a dude's punch with their hand. Who the hell did he think he was? Mr. Miyagi? I think not. It came across as feeling disingenuous. Maybe it was the fact that the prior parts of the novel didn't state or insinuate that this dude was such an epic fighter that he could catch a fist with the palm of his hand. Maybe he's part of the Matrix ... there is no spoon ...

And the ending ... dragged ... on ... for ... forever. AND it wasn't satisfying for me. I just didn't like it at all. I'm not a fan, I guess. But it has received super high ratings, so I'm probably going to stay in the minority on this one.

HASH(0x9d6c37bc) out of 5 stars James Bond -type read that brings the passion, suspense, mystery..Great Read! March 10 2015
By April R Symes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
***A gifted copy was provided by the publisher for an honest review***
This is the story of an art appraiser named Alex who is on the run from her art-thief, violent ex-boyfriend who is bound and determined to end her life. Alex risks her life to help a professor named Henry Chilton recover a stolen painting.
This story has suspense , espionage, and love. Alex at times comes across as a kick a&& woman who is ready to take on the world, while Henry is the sexy professor who has secrets, like the James Bond type. And together, the sparks fly, sizzle away with laughter, and then re-ignite to combust.
There is a lot here to make you want to devlve deeper into the underlining characters because the author has written so much into the story, that I didn’t want to put the book down i.e. Simon-Henry’s brother. OMG- he was awesome. Hope he gets his own book.

WOW - a great thriller with a sexy romance interwoven in it. I really enjoyed this book! It is a wonderful story written that has a roller coaster ride that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat from the very beginning.
My rating: 4.5 stars ****

HASH(0x9d6c3ab0) out of 5 stars Fantastic March 10 2015
By Bette Hansen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a fantastic romantic suspense novel! Well paced with great characters this is definitely one you want to read. Alex Northrop is on the run. After discovering her boyfriends less than legal art world dealings and escaping is attempt to murder her there is no one she can trust. When she crashes a college dinner party and meets Prof. Henry Chilton, she doesn't realize it, but she may have stumbled upon the one person she can not only trust but who will help her get her life back.

This is a great one and I definitely recommend it.
