PIXELS AND PAINT by Kristi Ann Hunter, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

Trinket Sisters Book #1
"What I absolutely cannot do is tell her there is a man involved . . ."

Emma Trinket's life is relatively simple . . . most of the time. Get up, work from home (the beauty of being a computer programmer . . . no office attire . . . except what is comfortable and cozy), play video games, go to sleep . . . begin the cycle all over again. Except on the rare occasions when she is called forth by her aunt, mother, and fashion designer sister to appear in public (in formal attire . . . which is anything but comfortable or cozy), Emma keeps "the two faces of Emma Trinket" completely separate. One particular evening this duplicity comes to a screeching halt in an art gallery, of all places . . . and with an artist, no less; (except at the time Emma has no idea, she will) and a very famous artist at that, Mr. Carter Anderson. Things are about to get complicated.

The story that follows is one of unraveling, unveiling, and understanding; between "the pixels and the paint", will the real Emma Trinket please stand up! There is a man who very much wants to love her.

"Everyone was happy with these pieces of me and that made me happy. Then you came along and somehow you saw them all. You saw that I was a puzzle that hadn't been quite put together yet."
What a delightfully clean and inspiring romantic comedy! The best news is that this is the first in a series!

BackCover Blurb:
For Emma Trinket, life is a delicate balancing act between loving her family and pursuing interests they don’t understand. When the opportunity arises to finally impress them with her job as a computer programmer, she jumps at it even if it means immersing herself in a world she’s despised since childhood.

Unfortunately the one man who could crush her prospects is also the best person to help her navigate the lessons she needs to be a success.

Artistic expression is both Carter Anderson’s safe space and his livelihood, but his fading inspiration has him worried about his place in life. His encounters with Emma spark a passion to create that he hasn’t felt in years and he isn’t ready to let go of his new muse even if she’s threatening the sanctity of his art world with her digital technologies.

As each tries to gain an advantage from the other, Emma and Carter discover they actually might be more compatible than they thought. Will that be enough to unify their opposing missions or will the real differences between pixels and paint tear them apart?
