About The Book

When two priceless impressionist paintings on loan to New York City’s Museum of Vegetable Culture go missing, Lupe Reinowski, the museum’s chief fundraiser is on the case. Lupe’s job and the future of the Museum are in peril, and she enthusiastically dives in to solve the crime. Just as Lupe uncovers substantial clues on the thefts, one of her top donors is kidnapped. Are the crimes connected? Lupe follows multiple leads – from New York’s society denizens to various museum employees and finds danger in her path. She flirts along the way with Josh Reyes, the handsome special agent from the FBI’s Art Crimes division and enjoys the support and camaraderie of her two roommates and quirky co-workers. Whether you are a fundraiser or just enjoy a good mystery, The Disappearing Donor is a captivating read.
