The Botticelli Secret by Marina Fiorato

A slyly intelligent, headstrong prostitute in Florence models for what will become Sandro Botticelli’s famous masterpiece La Primavera. When the artist dismisses her without payment, she steals an unfinished sketch of the painting, unleashing a series of murders all meant for her. A mix of history, mystery, art, music, poetry, romance, and politics, at the height of Medici power, Renaissance Italy comes alive in this intriguing historical novel.
