Summary

Years ago, Dieter Krumpf's grandmother died and left him everything, including a photo album containing pictures of the art collection she left behind when her family fled the Nazis. Now, Dieter is calling on the services of a lawyer, Gerald Young, to determine whether his family's legacy might be returned to him.

Gerald doesn't hold out much hope that the paintings will be returned, but Dieter's earnestness speaks to him and he agrees to help. At first he concludes that while Dieter has a case, suing in Austria isn't practical. But Gerald is a good lawyer, and as his feelings for Dieter develop, so does his determination to win the case. Together, Gerald and Dieter navigate research, hearings, and a dysfunctional family in the pursuit of fine art - and discover the art of love along the way.

Very enjoyable

This is a lovely gently flowing story. At the beginning we get Dieter's background learning about his family and friends. Dieter is a gentleman brought up by his grandmother to be so. But he is also strong and it's this strength that comes through while they try to get the paintings back.

Gerald is also strong. He's had to be considering his family, especially his father and older brother, who value success highly. Dieter and Gerald are attracted to each other from the beginning and Gerald sets out to woo Dieter. Everything is kept above board especially as Dieter is Gerald's client. Neither Dieter nor Gerald would like keeping a relationship secret or do anything underhanded. I love that Andrew Grey provides a direct romance. I know I am going to get a good story with him. I love how Andrew Grey occasionally brings in characters from other stories (from Bottled up series in this case) giving you a glimpse on how their lives are going.

Jon Solo's narration is good. He kept the story flowing and brought out the personality of the characters, Dieter's sweet nature and Gerald's tenacity with the case. Very enjoyable.

An Art of a Story

What made the experience of listening to Legal Artistry the most enjoyable?

A combination of a beautiful story and great narration.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the combination of the lawsuit and the romance.

What about John Solo’s performance did you like?

Everything

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I sat on pins and needles to see how the case ended.

Any additional comments?

Andrew Grey wrote a great story about a young man that grew up with his grandmother. He was left the house and everything in the attic finding out that there was some valuable antiques and that he had a connection to a famous painting in Austria.

I love the way Dieter and Gerald bond. I love client romances and this is one of the best I read in a long time. I loved all the twists and turns as we go along the way. I cannot wait to hear Artistic Appeal.
