榮譽:
Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse 喜劇小說獎
Bailey女性小說獎決選名單

Annie McDee 是個料理天才,把烹飪當作視覺藝術,但她也是個不幸的人:母親是個酒鬼,結縭16年的丈夫把她給甩了,喜歡的男人對她又沒感覺。這個害著單相思的女人,有天走進了一家舊貨商店,不小心看到了一幅髒髒小小的畫,這幅畫將她帶進了她從來沒經歷過的世界 -  倫敦的藝術圈。

這幅改變她生命軌跡的畫,原來是18世紀法國畫家華鐸的Improbability of Love。因為它,Annie見識到倫敦藝術界的喧鬧,這個圈子充斥著流放的俄羅斯寡頭政治分子,貪得無厭的阿拉伯酋長,努力地要把藝術品賣出的拍賣官以及無恥的藝品商,他們都想染指她的畫。

Annie一頭栽進了這幅畫的過去,她發現的不只是一串輝煌的畫主名單,還有歐洲歷史的黑暗秘密,當她探尋這幅畫的過去時,或許也領悟到,有可能再談一次戀愛?

When lovelorn Annie McDee stumbles across a dirty painting in a junk shop while looking for a present for an unsuitable man, she has no idea what she has discovered. Soon she finds herself drawn unwillingly into the tumultuous London art world, populated by exiled Russian oligarchs, avaricious Sheikas, desperate auctioneers and unscrupulous dealers, all scheming to get their hands on her painting - a lost eighteenth-century masterpiece called 'The Improbability of Love'. Delving into the painting's past, Annie will uncover not just an illustrious list of former owners, but some of the darkest secrets of European history - and in doing so she might just learn to open up to the possibility of falling in love again.
